    I had DQ alpha testing with Dr M, I'm in Melbourne so had a phone consultation with him and then had the test done through Melbourne pathology. Was pretty straightforward. I then went to Sydney to have LIT with him as a result.

    I have made my phone consult booking with Dr M for 13th Jan. Im hoping he may be able to find something new, so we can say this is the problem and this is how you fix it! I have cancelled all other Dr appointments with the 2 other specialists until then. Has anyone had luck falling pregnant whist having the Dq alpha match thing? Will we have to use a donor sperm? We are using donor egg but my husband will need more convincing if we need to use donor sperm aswell. I am jumping ahead of myself but i have got a bit of hope back that Dr M might have some answers for us.

    A quick note to say our beautiful DD arrived safely at 37+4 weeks on Tuesday.

    My little immune family is complete due to this thread and Dr M. I hope each and every one of you gets your precious bundles soon. xxx

    ECM, my (limited) understanding is that the alpha match issue is only a problem and needs treatment when you are using your husbands sperm ie his sperm and you have the match. If you use donor sperm there is no alpha match so no issue that needs treatment.

    Dr S was fabulous. Going for the detailed testing I wanted, and he'd like to do some intralipids in advance of ttc - for my thyroid antibodies for sure and in case of NKC (will have results next time I see him). Already talking clexane for a pregnancy.

    Hi ladies, just wondering for those who are pregnant, what is the deal with your medications. My IVF clinic wants me to wean off prednisolone, clexane and progesterone from 9 weeks. To be stopped by 10. Does this sound standard? I will remain on thyroxine and metformin. I have hashimotos and high levels of both antibodies. Thanks in advance.

    For me the Fertility doctor/clinic instructed basically what you were told but my OB and Reproductive Immunologist had different ideas which I followed and were:

    Steroids: Start weening at 16w and off at 19w (my BP escalated and there was some concern the Pred was contributing so I came off earlier than my IR preferred)

    Progesterone: same as Steroids basically

    Clexane: off at 32w

    Thyroxine (for antibodies): throughout pregnancy

    Not on Metformin.

    Hope that helps.
