    Default Positive ANA..what does your clinic do?

    I had a positive ANA test (1:320) when I first begun IVF and my clinic put me on prednisolone and aspirin during all my cycles. Now I'm at a different clinic and they have said my ANA levels don't warrant the above medications. I want to trust the new doctor because we went to them for a second opinion...but also freaking out about not taking the meds and having a miscarriage (already had a chemical and wk8 miscarriage). Plus I'll be super angry at them if they then turn around and say we had a BFN or miscarriage because of ANA. What are your ANA stories? What level were you and did they give you meds? Thanks in advance ladies.

    I had 2 failed cycles at my first clinic and they didn't even bother to test for ANA.
    Changed clinics, positive ANA, put on prednisolone and aspirin and fell pregnant that first cycle (DD now 2.5). Went back for a FET with the same protocol and fell pregnant again (DS now 5 months).
    Weaned off pred at 10 weeks and took aspirin until 36 weeks both times.
    I can't say for sure if it was the added pred/aspirin but sure is coincidental that as soon as I took them I got a positive outcome.
    These are not expensive medications. I don't see the harm in taking them if it gives you an extra edge in your chances for a successful pregnancy. I would be insisting on them with a positive ANA.
    Best of luck with your IVF.

    Hi @rosey82 thanks for your reply. I think I will push for it and really they need to respect my thoughts too (hopefully!). Do you know what your ANA level was?
