Hey girls, you will not believe this... I've literally just received a letter from the NHS offering me a breast screening.  How's that for good timing

    @olgakorbut - By the law, Czech Rep, Slovakia and Poland are now allowed to treat single women. Although it's the question of signing papers: whether a partner must sign them in the clinic, or you can provide already signed ones. According to the report of whereivf com (you can download from their website) single ladies can undergo IVF treatments in Spain, North Cyprus, Greece (a woman needs to provide a notary statement) - http://prntscr.com/r9uk1l, and Ukraine, Russia, and Latvia - http://prntscr.com/r9uki3 Good luck x

    Hi there,

    Sorry for the late reply, tincantcat - my embryos are double donor as hubby said if not both ours would be better if we ever fell out!  Um now those words ring bells in my ears.  So I should possibly ask about double donor straight from Repromedica? I will message them and see what they say to it!  Thanks all, just very stressful at the moment at home, really is but I wont give up on my dream, if I cant be a mum I cant and my body is just infiltrated with killer cells, heartbreaking but maybe I have to accet things! xxx

    Hi Kathy
    I have high killer cells.  Four embryos put back by Dr F and two survived.  I had prednisolone from day of transfer only and continued plus intralipids.  I did not take prednisolone any earlier which as initially advised by Dr F, because I was advised by Professor Q, it can have an adverse effect if taken too early. Don't lose faith Kathy these cells can be overcome.

    Hi Tincancat, I totally agree with the advice that you were given by your consultant re. prednisolone - I took it religiously throughout most of my 8 attempts, from start of protocol, and it made me feel absolutely horrendous. This time around, my consultant advised me only to take it for 5 days starting on the day before the transfer, and it was so much more manageable as there was not enough time for the horrendous side effects to kick in. Not sure if it was one of the reasons that this cycle has been successful, but it certainly helped that I wasn't feeling as terrible as previous cycles where I was on prednisolone for weeks and weeks. I did a bit of research and it seems that current thinking is that taking it for the 5 days around transfer are showing to be most effective to help with implantation, and any longer is detrimental due to the side effects that women experience. My protocol this time around just seemed much more gentle on my body. We're all a bit battered and bruised at this point in our journeys!! x

    Yes Latebloom it's not always the right thing to take it too long.  I took until 10 weeks then weaned down.  My friend who when to Professor Q was told not to take it at all because her Killer cells were normal: next cycle, without prednisolone which she had had on every cycle before, she was pregnant and had twins too.

    @olgakorbut you are so much more than your current circumstances, take heart and tackle one obstacle at a time.
    @LateBloom how are you doing, sickness still tough?
    @millie13 thanks, yep mammogram is now booked for 18th - ugh, not looking forward to it.
    Looks as though it's going to be Repromedica. We've chosen donors and I'm seeing doc on Wed to get forms for all the required blood tests.
    Now all that remains is the wait for post mortem results and all my results from mc tests. I'm guessing it's too decided whether protocol needs changing. Waiting is not my strong point .
    Also my period has not yet returned after mc, it's 7 weeks this weekend. Is this normal?

    Thereismore it can take a while for your period to return after a loss, also for us of older age I think itís depending on how fertile we are as well, how quickly the hcg comes down, how quickly the body recovers, how many eggs we have left etc, your period could take another week, 6 mths, a year, or it may never come back, it all really depends. Personally I wouldnít expect to much from the repromedica protocol, if your needing extras added to it, I would look for an immune specialist etc for that, or follow a previous one as the one I got from them is very basic, just estrogen and progesterone, I have fiddled around with mine and Iím using my one from my Czech clinic. So good with the timing of the mammogram though !

    Stacey10 thanks for the info. My last protocol was very basic, so if pm shows an issue with the baby unrelated to me then that should be sufficient. I'm hoping Prof Q can give some guidance, which is why I guess it's prudent to wait and not plunge full steam into the next chapter...
    How are you doing? Are you making progress with getting tubes sorted?
