    Default Intralipids and/or CLEXANE - slight elevated NK cells

    I have recurrent miscarriages even with my recent donor egg transfer (week 10).

    My NK test results indicate borderline elevated levels, and my FS prescribed CLEXANE for me. He also suggested INTRALIPIDS as an option.

    What are your thoughts and experiences with CLEXANE and/or INTRALIPIDS? Were you also on borderline elevated NK cells?

    I was considered on the higher range of normal on my NK test results. My fs decided to treat them as we had tried everything else. I was prescribed the lower dose of clexane but that gradually was increased through future cycles and also intralipids. It wasn't a quick fix for me but I was happy to try this as a next step to achieve pregnancy. I would definitely consider this a positive move in your situation if you are actually achieving a bfp but having difficulty keeping the pregnancy going. Good luck x

    My NKC was at 13 I think anything below 10 is ‘normal’ so I wasn’t high but over normal to require clexane/intralipds and steroids (Dexa) I also have ANA’s & MTHFR (which I reckon the clexane is for mainly) I can tell you when I went on the protocol with our current FS we got pregnant for the first time ever in the 3 years on the very first cycle with him. So definitely it worked for me. Couldn’t believe it all the FET all the embys sacrificed than we moved to him & bang pregnant (miscarried). I’m a believer that protocol worked (as well as Filgrastim & the ERA Test)

    Currently in the 2ww after have a double 3 day transfer on Friday. So we shall see for this cycle!

    I’m basically the same as Ruby. NK of 13 and mthfr. fortunately diagnosed before first ever fet. was put on clexane and predisonole and then first ever fet worked. also had intralipid immediately after transfer, but not again after that.

    Thanks ladies! I’ll go for INTRALIPIDS then, given it appears to have been part of the success formula for you all.

    With CLEXANE, did you take it before or after the transfer, and for how long? I’m prescribed 20mg.

    Good luck @RubyT78!

    All past FET (with previous FS) clexane started day of it after tranafer. With my current FS my last FET (BFP) started 5 days before transfer in conjunction w/Progesterone Oil & Pessaries. And again did exact same protocol last week for this transfer. My FS got me to do the ERA Test (sample of your lining sent to Spain) the result was I need 2 days extra of progesterone! That’s 48hrs later that my transfers in the past should’ve happened 🤦🏻‍♀️ up till that only BFP other FS have been transferring way too early for my ideal implantation time. Ugh I think everyone should have ALL tests after a year of no success. Saves so much money, heart break & a lot of potential embryos!

    Thank-you!!! not testing till BT Day! 🤞🏼

    If positive pregnancy - up to 14 weeks...but that depends on your own individual situation (ie if you have MTHF or any other clotting factors etc)

    Exactly this as well a dq alpha match. Before my last FET, we also did the ERA test and found transfer had to be as late in the day as possible. I was lucky to get a strong BFP with that transfer but unfortunately we found it was a blighted ovum at 7.3 weeks. But in 3 years of ttc - 2 of those IVF, this is the furthest we’d gotten so still celebrating it as a win.

    Good luck!!

    From memory i started abt 4-5 days before the transfer with clexane. predisonole a fair bit earlier i think. i am currently 12w3d and still on clexane and predisonole. not sure for how much longer. i know some ladies are on clexane all throughout their pregnancy, so i won’t be surprised if that’s me as well. whatever it takes
