?'s for RE...Help!

Happy long weekend ladies!  So I am trying to gather questions and write them down for our WTF next Thursday.  I am looking for any info/ advice on implantation issues.  This last cycle was a 5dt and as usual, the RE's say they are "beautiful" embies.  Out of 7 tranferred in the last year...I never even got a c/p, except on a random in-between month after a FET, so they couldn't even blame the "leftover meds" for that one.  I did have a hysteroscopy in July, they removed some scar tissue and the biopsy came out normal.

What am I missing?  What about natural killer cells?  I was reading that implantation issues are a tough one, so I need to be my own advocate so I don't waste my potential last two cycles.  This past cycle was the only one that I used aspirin in.  I was reading about using a combo of Aspirin, Heparin and Prednisone, so I need to ask him about this.

I know some of you are extremely knowledgeable about things that I have yet to even learn about, so I am interested.....Thoughts??  Edwina, you always have lots to share!  I need some direction.

Thanks!!  Big Smile

  • Have you had the auto-immune/clotting disorder testing done? If not, I'd ask about that.

    I hope it's a productive conversation. Good luck.

    I am not sure, I will ask if I can have that done.  Thanks!

  • Ask C.ardone if he will do intralipids. I feel like SIRM is the only one that does them, but C.ardone seemed open to do whatever when I had a consult. If he wont, you can always do a free phone consult with SIRM in NY. I don't know how much it will be to move your embies there and you would probably be OOP for the transfer, but it is only a few grand compared to a fresh cycle. My sister has a friend who did DE. On her 5th transfer, she moved to SIRM in IL and they did intalipids and it worked that time.
