    Did any others have to do a biopsy too? Or were some of you given treatment/told you didn’t need it just based off bloods?

    Hi @Hopeful137

    No biopsy for me. Dr M advised some protocoles just based on bloods.

    I later questioned about the biopsy. He said we could and the next visit didn’t mention it again as an option that was needed.

    My understanding is it depends what he sees in your blood work. Sometimes he’ll just medicate, sometimes he needs a bit more info and will request the biopsy. I’m glad he did because we found a polyp during the hysteroscopy/scratch/biopsy.

    Those from Brisbane who did a skype consult with Dr M, where did you get initial blood tests done? And what blood tests were they?

    Normally you have the first Skype and he’ll confirm tests he wants.

    I think the blood tests can vary depending on what your FS has already done. I’d had extensive testing so only needed 3 more but others might have had a longer list.

    Dr M has preferred pathology companies for some tests. Not sure for QLD, but in NSW I was under strict instructions only to go to Laverty’s.


    My FS had done:

    MTHFR c665C>T and c1286A>C
    Factor V Leiden
    ACL Anticardiolipin antibodies
    ACA
    ANA Anti nuclear antibodies
    ATA anti thyroid antibodies
    Prothrombin gene mutation
    Activated Protein C resistance
    Protein C thrombosis screen
    Protein S thrombosis screen
    Homocysteine levels
    TFT Thyroid function test
    Glucose tolerance test
    Vitamin B1, B6, B12, serum folate
    Lupus anticoagulant

    Dr M added:

    Cell Surface Markers - Lymphocytes subsets (this includes NK cells)
    Anti sperm antibodies
    Anti nuclear antibodies (re-tested)
