Hi I'm Australian. Recently arrived in Athens awaitingmy third donor egg cycle with hubby's sperm

Lovely peny got me pregnant at Xmas time using valtrex, clexane, antibiotics, prednisolone. Pregnyl.
Sadly  I miscarried  on my birthday.
Absolute devastation.

Went back for frozen transfer in April.
Peny wanted me to repeat immune protocol but my aus FS told me not to bother. :'(
We didn't get pregnant and have no ice babies left. After spending $20000.

Now the FS is sending me to genesis.
And guess what?
I'm on an immune protocol...  >:(

I had IV intralipids on Wednesday.

My gut feel is it's my hubby's sperm that's the problem not my body.
I conceived my two sons first attempt when I was 29 and 38.
Healthy full term pregnancies.

I'm so frustrated.

My FS won't test my husbands sperm probably because they are both Greek Australian doctors.  The whole male ego thing....

I'm desperately hoping this cycle will work.
Missing my family like crazy.

    Hi LIT,

    I had my second LIT yesterday and have limited or no reaction...at first LIT, it started itching after 1 day and then I got a rash on my legs....it's been more than 25 hours this time and I just have soreness around the injection area and slight raised skin. No itching and limited redness...

    Anyone else experienced this?

    I'm Worried the second time hasn't worked?

    according to some of the lit protocols, when it stops itching that's a sign that you stop doing lits as supposedly the body has finished its reaction.

    Thanks agate, I just sent you a PM, but you just answered like the star that you are! So is that a good thing? I.e. It's worked and don't need more?

    I don't know what treatment is like with the spanish clinic and gcrm.

    if you go with serum, they'll advise you on both the immunes and the lining.  If you had asherman's you'd know because the bleed after a failed IVF would be very little blood.

    probably if you go with serum they'll try you on gcsf?

    Hi, after just having a 2nd failed cycle ( first ivf fresh 2nd FET)
    Both single embreyo transfers with 5AA blasts and ' perfect lining' I'm beginning to feel that I may have implantation issues.
    On both cycles iv spotted for 3 days 4 days after transfer then the spotting stopped until BFN and cyclogest stopped.
    On both occasions iv had a sore throat and mouth ulcers. I have another 6 5 days blasts frozen which nhs have said I can use 2 in next FET however I can't see a consultant until next fresh cycle. NHS wales funds 2 fresh 2 frozen.
    There is a private clinic near me that offers Intralipid iv privately at a cost of 250 per session which I would happily pay.
    Is it worth doing without any actual immune testing? And is there anything else that could be recommended for next cycle?
    I am hoping I can have private medication on nhs cycle I have an appointment at private clinic in 2 weeks.
    Any help or advice would be amazing x

    Lilypink: suggest discussing steroids and antivirals with your clinic.  Also think about deficiencies of zinc, b12, lysine etc.

    Thank you so much for reply- can I ask what you mean by anti vitals?
    I'm lucky enough to still be under nhs funding at the moment but know nhs can have a negative outlook on immune testing so want to go to consultation with as much knowledge as possible.
    Thanks once again x

    antivirals e.g. valaciclovir
