Thankyou both for your kind messages. NK testing is one of the things they will do next I guess. For now, I just need a break. But I really appreciated your messages and thoughts - and a little bit of hope.

Thanks once again,

Jaye

Recurrent early m/c - is there any hope?

Hi all, Some of you might remember me from a while back - haven't been round much lately. My story - in a nutshell - 4 years ttc, i/f completely unexplained, noone's really found anything wrong with us. Had three IUIs - nothing - then four IVFs - out of these had 3 positives, but all lost after only...

Testing for NK cells in New York area

Hi all, A lot of you talk about getting tested for NK cells - I spoke to my Dr and she said these tests aren't available in Australia. We're going to New York in May and I'm wondering if anyone can tell me if it's possible to get this test done while I'm there - if so, how would I go about it? Conta...

Thanks everyone for putting up with my enormous post! Traci, thanks for your thoughts. I've been through all of that too - am I really doing this to have a baby anymore, or just to win! But I'm coming more and more around to adopting if this doesn't work (went through a phase where I wasn't sure), s...

I'm an MTHFR mutant! warning - long post.

Hello everyone. Wow, it's been a really long time for me since I've been here. Quick background (to cut a VERY long story short) 3 unsuccessful IUIs, 2 IVF (2nd with ICSI), of which the first 2 I got BFPs but lost both very early. My last try was -ve. This week we were all keyed up to have our one a...

Hey, I like this thread alot! Thought I'd add that Courtney Cox, while I don't think she had IVF, had some condition where she could get pg easily but miscarried all the time - I read that (apparently) she had 10 or 12 miscarriages before finally giving birth to her child just recently - at 40+.

Hi Juliette, I've had all my treatment through Sydney IVF. I think they are on the expensive side, but I pay around $3,100 out of pockets (Medicare picks up around $2,000, so the total cost is around $5000). You then get around 80% of that out of pockets back after you reach a certain threshold (whi...

Tricia, I'm so sorry. It's all so unfair. Look after yourself. Laurie, of course I can understand you're disappointed, but one is better than none. Try and focus on the positive. Joy, I certainly don't feel sick at all, and haven't heard of this as being a side effect of progesterone, so could be a ...

Hey everyone, Every time any of you talk about the cost of IVF I feel so lucky. Here everyone only pays about $2-3,000 Australian - I guess $1,500-2,500 US - and we are paying even less right now due to some government change they introduced to try and win the election (I was conflicted coz I didn't...

Hi Sophie, My clinic tells me that day of egg collection, not transfer, is day zero. Then you can have your ET on day 2, 3, 4 or 5 - so everyone's will be different number of days after EC to test, depending on what stage embies were at when they were put back. Then you have to wait 16 days after E ...
