    Bindy - your doctor should test your free T3 and free T4 levels every 4 weeks throughout a pregnancy, and your thyroxine dose should be adjusted as needed (it's very common to need a dose increase early in pregnancy and often several times throughout).

    That sounds too early to wean off progesterone - the placenta takes over progesterone production as 12 weeks so that's when you should be weaned off.

    Cathy - thyroxine isn't for antibodies, it's to replace the thyroid hormones that your body can't make on its own. It does usually help to lower the antibodies (though many other things do that better). But the primary purpose is to ensure you have enough T4 for baby until their own thyroid gland is fully functioning about halfway through a pregnancy.

    Thankyou ladies, I have no access to an IR out here unfortunately, I travel 800km just to see the fertility specialist. I might stay on the progesterone until 12 weeks then as I will have enough to get me through. Not sure what to do about the prednisolone and clexane. Wish I lived closer to help 😞

    Hi all, it's been a while since I've been on here. After transferring 1 blast and doing intralipids plus Clexane, we fell pregnant. It was a huge surprise as my Daughter and I had some really bad food poisoning in my 2 week wait so had written the whole pregnancy thing off.

    Anyway, I'm 8 weeks now and have my next scan on Monday. I'm terrified that this bub isn't going to stick especially since my hubby and I have some hla matches and a dq alpha match and I'm not taking prednisolone (ivf doc was against it).

    Just curious if anyone has gone on to have a healthy bub after using just the Clexane, intralipids and 400mg progesterone.

    Thanks.

    Thanks Cathy, yes i read that too somewhere in my Google searching. Its good to know that is an option but i haven't convinced hubby to do donor sperm yet, he wants to try with his sperm first before we move onto that.

    Hi everyone! I am new here and have loads of questions to ask. Sorry if these questions have been asked a million times before.
    I have had 4 miscarriages in the last 2.5 years. The first two were MMCs that ended at 7weeks and then the last two were CPs which ended very early. I tested CD56 natural killer cell in July and it was 11. My FS told me the result was fine. Is that really fine? Some people say anything more than 8 is considered high.
    I'm also worried about DQ alpha matching issue. We haven's tested anything yet. But because my losses were getting earlier, it made me think could it be DQ alpha issue? I've been so worried, if this is the issue, is there still possible to have a successful pregnancy?
    I also have thin lining issue recently, never had that issue before. But all the sudden my lining is so thin that we can't even do IVF because they can't transfer anything with a lining that thin. Could the thin lining related to immune issue as well?
    I'm really sorry about the long post. Just so frustrated and confused... Such a long battle!

    Sadly I can't help with answers to any of your questions but can say, most doctors incl the Immune specialists put everyone on daily 1000mg vit E as soon as you first see them to try to build up lining so while you are looking for answers, perhaps you can start that off and you will at least feel like you are starting something.

    Good luck.

    Hi @SophJ- just wondering with your MMC's if you had D&C's? Unfortunately after my D&C's for my MMC I ended up with complications and infections and unluckily Asherman's Syndrome- and consequently I have a thin lining also.
    Not saying that is your problem, but might be worth looking in to if you also have reduced AF? D&C's whilst they tell you are almost risk free are most definitely not, with approx 40% estimated to end up with complications after a MMC. There is a great thread on BH relating to AS that may give you some good info.
    Hope this helps

    Ruby 16, unfortunately I have had 3 D&Cs. I have been worried about AS as well. My FS did a hystoroscopy for me in July before my first IVF cycle, she removed a polyp and also told me there was no scar tissue at all. My lining was always around 8mm before that. But then ever since then, my lining has been under 6mm. So I'm thinking either that hystoroscopy or the IVF medication ruined my lining. How did you get diagnosed for AS? And who did you see for it? Did you get it treated? Have you had success after? Sorry for my questions...
    Charlie, I have been worried about immune issue as well because I'm not sure if LB tested anything for it or not. I just booked a phone consult with DrM on 20th Jan, earliest I can get. Seriously can't wait to talk to him and start all the tests. Just need some answers! So are you on DrM's protocol now? Has it thickened your lining?

    @SophJ, my AF went from being 5-7 days and quite heavy pre D&C's to 1/2 a day to a day some months and barely existent. I also had a fair bit of pain around that time of the month, so I knew something wasn't right. Took me around 10 months to convince my Dr's that something was wrong, but finally I was referred to Professor Vancaillie in Sydney (the only A listed AS surgeon in Oz), who I can't speak highly enough of.

    I am currently 6w3d pregnant *yay*, & have been working with both my FS and Dr M as have also found that I have elevated NK cells and an imbalance in my T helper and suppressor cells.

    At my scan for this FET my lining was 6.7mm which I was really concerned about to be honest, but my FS said that he was happy with it being over 6mm.

    Just have to hope that its a sticky one and that my body comes to the party!!

    All the best and I hope you find some answers.

    PS there was one lady over on the Ashermans thread that had her baby on a lining of 5.4mm I think, so it can be done xo
