Thank you for your replys 😀, I think I will take the parcetamol and nurofen. I don't know why the thought of gas and air scares me! Crazy I know when I am taking all these other drugs that a bit of air and gas scares me haha.

Once again thank you x

    Thanks, tincancat! I am not quite sure why I have aspirin or clexane on my protocol anyway as I didn't test positive for anything. I do have c677t mthfr (hetero) but don't think this would be a reason for aspirin or clexane as they only found c677t after I got the protocol. I have just myself replaced aspirin with clexane as I still had it at home
     Hope am not doing more harm than good! I started the 20mg prednison as described and I got achy legs from it,  ad if I got the flue :(

    Melissa - good luck! I didn't find the biopsy too bad.

    Hi Katkat
    Sometimes clexane started empirically for older ladies to help blood flow in lining.  How come you have started prednisolone.  Professor Quenby says from ET.  Taken too early it can affect implantation according to Professor Quenby. Perhaps I've missed something and you have had ET.

    Hi tincancat, yes I have, 3 day transfer of 2 embryos a couple of days ago  :)  I see about the clexane. I have had a few transfers but I just always wondered why I needed this without having had a diagnosis of any issues.

    I took paracetomol before mine, wasn't offered gas and air though! It hurts, but it's over quickly. I had massive problems parking, so leave plenty of time to park your car, and make sure you have lots of change in case you end up in the pay and display!

    Hi Everyone,

    Just wondering how everyone is getting on? Have any of you started your cycles/transfers since having your biopsy's?
    Did it take more than 2 weeks to get your results back from Prof B/Q today is now 2 weeks past the biopsy and they marked it through as urgent.

    Hi ladies

    I know this post is not too recent but thought I would give you my experience...
    I saw prof Q and Brosens back in Aug for the first time following 2 mmc (IVF pregs). My first biopsy showed 13% NKCells. I got my results within a week as I discovered I was pregnant naturally 2 days after the biopsy. I was put on 20mg pred immediately but sadly mc a week later. I went back for a second biopsy which they offered the following month and my result was 0.8! I unfortunately missed the consultation and they refused me a second call. Since then I've seen another immune specialist who tested my Nk cells from my periferal blood which shows normal cell count but very active cells. He told me the uterine test are not as accurate as your uterine lining changes monthly hence such a big difference is my results from one month to the other.

    I was put on a protocol of taking the pred (25mg) 3/4 days prior to ET transfer and today has confirmed I have had a chemical pregnancy (it was a faint positive yesterday) do you think I started taking the pred too early?

    I also had an issue with my lining at each biopsy is was 6mm and 4.8 respectively, they said there was no help for this issue and nothing they could do and washed their hands of me. I felt really let down by them as I know this isn't true given I'd done 3 rounds of IVF.

    I'm a bit in limbo with it all now ...

    Hi Franki
    Not sure what to say other than yes the uterine environment will change each month that's why they are increasingly doing two biopsy to give better picture.  Mine were almost identical.  I'm wondering if the fact you were in the very early days of pregnancy when the first biopsy was done perhaps this gave you a dramatic difference in results?

    My understanding is there is little correlation between peripheral NK blood numbers and endometrial NK cell numbers.  However if you wish to go down the peripheral blood testing and theory of treatment, as many believe this is the way forward for them, then you should follow the protocol give by those doctors who are advising you in this respect.  It is quite possible with a different theory influencing their thinking the protocol would advocate starting prednisolone at a different time to Professors Quenby and Brosens.
