    MTHFR is not covered by Medicare, I do remember paying for it but can’t remember price.

    @Risa78 I’m in Sydney in Glebe. So in Sydney cbd or surroundings would work.

    @Psc, Alison Gee at Genea is great and I have heard she works well with Dr M and believes in immune protocols. Her offices are in Kent st. The other option is just don’t tell your FS and add any Dr M extras to the protocol.
    @Shelter75, I had already done MTHFR, Factor V Leiden testing via my clinic. I recall paying them $125 for one lot of tests and $295 for another (NK cells?).

    Anyone on fertility specialist recommendation that will support Dr M protocol? I’m looking to speak to the doc to explore further.
    Dr Alison Gee, definitely. She's with genea and is totally supportive of dr m.

    Hi ladies,

    I'm new to this forum and want to pick your brains on something that happened this morning.

    I'm currently pregnant with twins at 8w4d. (we saw 2 hb last week at 7w4d, one was bigger and hb @ 166, the smaller one measured a few days behind and hb @ 141)

    I had fresh embryo transfer with donor eggs.

    This morning my GP called and informed me that my white blood cell is quite high @ 18, and ESR level was also high @ 59 (he said normal range is 25). I have since contacted my OB but just waiting for his reply.

    I'm super concerned and I wonder if I have NK cells (or some other issues that would lead to a miscarriage)? I'm already taking prednisolone as part of the protocol - so I'm now frantically trying to read up about it. Is there anyway I can, from this point forward, prevent a miscarriage?

    I'm trying to read as much as I can from this thread, but just hoping since you guys are so knowledgeable, you can shed some light...

    This is my first pregnancy. TIA!!

    Hi @pineapple19 - I am no doctor or expert - but I thought that elevated wbc and esr are more signs of infection and inflammation. So it could be just something like that small on the side.

    Nkc - are usually tested on other markers or specific tests. The pred would help with nkc.

    So frustrating when you don’t know. I hope you get soon more info and confirmation soon from your doctors.

    Congrats on the twins !

    Thank you so much for your reply, Elda!

    My OB called and said that its normal, don't worry and just let him know if I feel sick or feverish.. But I got worried earlier and booked in for an US this week just so that I can see my littles beans again for a peace of mind

    With my limited knowledge, I thought having signs of inflammation might be an indication of my body rejecting the embryos and treating them as foreign matter and killing them off...

    But it is a small relief knowing I'm okay for now, phew!

    Hi @pineapple19! Really happy to read and to know that you feel better.

    From what I know, when pregnant, the immune system can be compromised and the body more prone to infections etc

    Haha nice for the u/s!

    Hi Girls

    Do you know if it’s a problem to get intralipid these days? I’m about to start the protocol but was told there are issues sourcing it. How and where does your dr get it? Ta

    What state are you in? Most specialists don’t do intralipids so you need to find someone who does. It is normally administered in the clinic’s day surgery or at an infusion clinic.

    Eg In Sydney both Genea and IVF Australia will arrange intralipids at their day hospitals. There’s also an infusion clinic in Randwick (just need a script from your specialist). Dr M also arranges intralipids at Hurstville Private (lots of patients fly in for this).

    In Brisbane, QFG do it at their Spring Hill day surgery. I’ve also had it at St Andrews Day Infusion Unit.

    In Melbourne, Dr Nick Lolatgis. Not sure if others.

    Not familiar with other states.
