    I think testing the embryos will give you peace of mind that at least what you're transferring has no chance of miscarrying due to chromosomal issues. I was told that success per transfer with a tested embryo had 70% chance. Those odds sound good.
    Freakedout44 How long did it take for you to find out about having these nk cells? Is it something I should be tested for if I have a third bfn? Is it a difficult test? I'm worried I have this and don't know yet! Thanks

    @ceasardust - DH and I had had 5 failed attempts, before then changing clinics and specialists. From my understanding, most specialists don't test for high NK cells as they do not really know if it is a cause of failed implementation or miscarriage, but some think it is.

    I was told that after more than two failed cycles, it is worth getting tested.

    Unfortunately it is not a pleasant test - it is a cervical biopsy carried out on day 21 of your cycle and I found it quite painful. But it is quick.

    I would recommend asking about it though - I figure the more help I can get in working out what's going on, the better.

    Thanks. I already had a biopsy as I had a scratch but I wonder if they tested for those cells. They said it came back normal. Hmm might call and ask. Cheers

    @BB77
    Hope you don't mind me chiming in. You sound like you have similar issues to me. Did you do the Chicago testing with Dr M? How many hla matches?
    How long did the pgd testing take? Were you able to do a FET the cycle after the collection? We're about to do pgd then Dr m aggressive immune protocol with a FET. Getting impatient though...

    Thanks @Dizzy82!
    I'm not sure about Chicago testing, but I'm pretty sure he did everything? He didn't say we had hla matches but a complete dq alpha match, which I unfortunately googled and lost all hope. But after reading dr bravermans site (very informative and uplifting if you're worried about matches), it seems neupogen is the way to go. What matches do you have? Has dr m told you what he's going to put you on?
    As far as pgd testing, it took 3 weeks to get results, so did an fet in the very next cycle. I understand your impatience but putting back embryos that have been tested gives you a better chance, so might be better in the long run?

    Thanks for this, is that 3 weeks after epu or 3 weeks once blastocyst?

    Yes I've too found hope in braverman's site. We've got a DQ alpha match but hubby is homozygous so almost full match. Dr M has me doing the works, LIT, ivig, Dex, clexane, neupogen and I'll prob add some intralipids in there too, why the hell not?

    Is this your first pregnancy?

    Hi All

    Still trying for bub number 1.

    We've done 3 fresh & 1 frozen and we are about to start another fresh.

    Sometimes I wonder if we are ever going to see those magical 2 lines

    Xxx

    Please don't give up.
    I've had 1 fresh cycle and 6 failed FET - transfer #7 worked for us, now 27 weeks pregnant
    People told us to give up 'it's not meant to be' but I just kept holding onto hope.
