Also not sure if you are interested but I can't recommend acupuncture highly enough either. I had it for 2 sessions prior to transfer then just immediately before and after transfer (about an hour pre and post).
Then have had it once a week since. We've stepped it up to twice a week when I had bleeding.
But the actual transfer I was so much more relaxed this time with having the acupuncture.

We are TTC for the last 6 yrs with unexplained infertility.
Both of us are fine. Husband had mild motility and DNA frag issues, but last 2 yrs the reports look normal.
Ive done HSG but not Lap/Hystero as doctors said they don't feel it's required and asked to go for IVF
IVF 1: Transferred 1, implanted, but missed miscarriage at around 5.5 weeks
FET: Transferred 2. Both didn't stick.
Now this month IVF 2: Transferred 2. Very low Beta HCG and now spotting. Most likely a miscarraige again
I am really anxious as to what's going on. Fron the look of it there is no problem with implantation. The embryos also were very good grade embryos. I have around 6 frozen embryos. But dont want to go in for another FET before knowing what's wrong.
Anyone seen such a case as mine before and what cud be the reason its happening?
When I go and meet my doc, what am I supposed to ask or suggest to him?
Pls help me out here about the way fwd. I'm turning 34 this March and very nervous!

@brightsunshine I'm so sorry to hear you've had a rough journey it's never easy.
Reading your history sounds similar to mine... We're currently in year 8 and I'm 37... Had multiple IVF cycles in 3 years with only one BFP that ended in miscarriage and previous to ivf natural pregnancies that ended in miscarriage/ectopic.
They've never really found any reason other than just bad luck... And I kept being told it's ok times on your side.. But now it's so frustrating because I feel like it's not anymore
So my advice to you would be I wish 3 years ago I was more aggressive in my approach to finding a FS who was not just doing the bare minimum. I'm currently with my 4th and someone who is open and trying everything to get us pregnant.
She tested me this year for MTHFR mutation which I had never heard off (arghh frustrating) and came back positive... Put that on your list of you haven't already been tested... It can be linked back to m/c, dvt, depression, anxiety all things that I've had... It means a change in vitamins and not having folic acid but proper folate.
Also look into immune issues... I've had multiple biopsy in the last 12months with NKC not coming in as a factor but high ANA... So we've been doing cycles for the first time with support of steroids, blood thinners & intralipids.
The other thing is maybe it's worth having a lap/hystroscope? I had a hystroscope earlier in the year (to check NKC) but my current FS has suggested we do a lap... More to see and rule out since we haven't had a BFP in a while... She's wondering if my remaining tube is diseased (haven't had a lap since my ectopic) and they can leak fluid etc which can stop implantation... Her explanation was that scans don't show everything. I wish I had done one earlier now and not wasted cycles.
I hope that helps some... Feel free to pm me if you like... I hope you get some answers soon and fingers crossed that your current cycle heads in the right direction to a take home bubba xx

My story is very different to yours, husband obstructive azoospermia me they think no issues??!! 2 frozen transfers, excellent looking embryos both bfn. It is very disheartening and I am so sorry for your m/c's. I hope you get your take home baby soon. I second what tanej78 says - consult with lots of fs if needed - I have an appointment booked in jan to see a new one - dr m in Sydney who is a reproductive immunologist. Maybe I won't need it.......
Maybe that's why I am now looking at this today - 3rd time's a charm. Please stay "sparkie" (hubbie and I nicknamed this one after I leant on the electric fence with my belly the day of transfer) - 4am 6dp5dt

Hi Ladies, hope your weekends were good?
@Annerley....bugger, am so hoping that today's beta is a good strong one for you, thinking of you and hope you enjoyed your time away on the weekend.
@mrsthomo...double bugger, don't be too hard on yourself, we're all only human and make mistakes....and now you can enjoy a fabulous, fun filled Christmas, with lots of champagne and indulgences!!
Congrats @sunny79!! How exciting, and I love that you have named your passenger 'sparky' after the electric fence! That gave me a giggle, as does the wasps and the bike....I can't remember who that was....they are so things that I do, so it was like I was writing those stories myself!
@MrsSMS- more big hugs, but glad things are moving along for you.
Take care all, in this super busy week before chrissy! R xo

Id be asking for bloods done to check for any auto immune. I've just had my 4th stim cycle and I told the FS I wanted to freeze all and investigate what is going wrong so at egg collection he also performed a hysteroscopy and found my lining to be quite white which means not enough blood and this could be why no implantation. I have an appt Wed so I'll find out then what the treatment is.
It's so frustrating because you don't know what to ask to be tested for. Tanej78 suggested a test that I also haven't heard of. It's hard as you have to put all your faith in your specialist. We have changed clinics after 2 cycles and we much prefer out 2nd FS.

Thanks so much for all that @woof5105 you seem like a real wealth of info to me right now, I really appreciate it all.
@Ruby16 thank goodness I didn't end up meeting you last weekend, you would have certainly seen me at my worst. I hope everything went well in Sydney
Lol @Billie2 do you think we need a new uncursed thread or private group to kick off 2016? Good luck with your appointment, I hope you get somewhere
AFM: today's beta is 180- an 82hr doubling rate. Whilst this morning the clinic said they've seen cases where the number spikes and everything goes on as normal, they are now saying the levels will reach a certain point and drop off. I'm back for another BT on thurs as they will need to track the levels. I just don't want this to keep on going, as if I haven't had enough BTs. I worked out that the next BT will be number 13 in just over a month and I know I'll need a few more.

Am glad I can be of some help @Annerley
I feel like I have been through it all - immune reactions, miscarriages, failed cycles and chem's. Then this cycles up and down progesterone!
So much so I'm still terrified about the scan on Thursday. The only thing I haven't had so far is a blighted ovum and I keep getting little voices reminding me that I haven't been through that level of hell yet ...
Sending everyone massive hugs and best wishes ... This thread has definitely had a hammering of bad news!!!

THREAD CRASHER ALERT......
Hello to all the Lovelies on the thread😊
Just quickly popping in to post this link for the Ladies wanting to know more about Immune Issues & what tests to ask for.
Some FS believe in them & some don't so that may determine what kind of reception you'll get when you go asking about them & having tests done.
Anyhoo...here's the link to Dr Beers website for all those interested.
Wishing everyone the very best of luck with getting their BFP's asap!!!
Congrat's to those with recent BFP's too!!
Babydust all round!!!!😊
