The Fertility and Gynae Academy

Hi hon, Just saw this after i posted in your diary. Don't feel nervous about the needles. The first time i cycled with him he gave me all my needles and i was gona faint! I used to have Dr. S and her nurses here give me the injections so when i first got my bag of drugs i was so scared. But don't worry i promise once you do the first injection you will become a pro! Regarding Aspirin, make sure you ask him, i was on it early on because of my MTHFR homozygous. So it is different with each patient...

Leif: That is odd that it is early because he told me it last in our body for 6 months...hmmm...well he knows best. You can do LIT 3-4 weeks after to save money on the initial tests they will do on your husband. By law they have to check his blood for STD's. I am not sure what they test. But if you pass four weeks then you have to pay for those tests again. Sorry i forgot how much they all cost. Ask Jesse on the phone she should explain to you about the tests and costs. I know you might feel fru...

IMMUNOLOGY CHATTER

Hi jewel, So sorry your cycle got postponed. That happened to me in my last cycle and i was so upset. After my second humira round my levels went up again, and when i looked at all my past retests, i found my lowest results was after IVIG and intralipids. My body always flared up with Humira, some people though after a second round of Humira get the results lowered. But when Dr. Gorgy wanted me to postpone again, i actually said no, and i prefer to go on IVIG and Intralipids and take the risk. I...

LTI prob required again round 2

Hi, I am so sorry about your miscarriage. What i know about LIT is that the treatment results only last in our body for 6 months and after that you might need another round of LIT if you were tested and needed it. Did you have the LAD test recently? Hope this helps. xoxo

MTHFR homozygous and clexane

Hi ladies, Anybody MTHFR homozygous? And if so how much clexane are you on daily and till how many weeks? Dr. G initially told me till 31 weeks, today he tells me i need to be on it till 6 weeks after delivery!!! So mad, i was looking forward to stopping soon! But he scared me I have extra water in sac and my doc is worried and she told me to decrease from 60 mg to 40 mg. He does not think it is related. She does! So confused! Any ideas ladies? Also does clexane cause blooding thinning in babies...

Is mild cramping normal in twin pregnancies?

Hi ladies, I am a little worried and i wanted to see if other twin mommies experienced this. I am having mild cramping on and off for the past two weeks. Cramping is worse at night when i am trying to sleep and first thing in the morning. I asked my doctor and she got worried and put me on cyclogest for a month just in case she said it might be "premature contractions". That really scared me. I keep reading online that it might be round ligament pain. Is cramping more coming in twins? I am 19 we...

Tests Results - Help please..........x

Some info regarding LIT treatment and the LAD test: LAD measures the level of anti-paternal blocking antibodies in your blood. A sample of serum from your blood is mixed with a sample of live white cells (T and B cells) from your partner (or sperm donor – if using known donor). Where antibodies are present in your blood they will bind to your partner’s white cells and the percentage which have been ‘tagged’ in this way can be measured using flow cytometry. As half the embryo’s DNA comes from the...

NK ASSAY (% Killed) Panel 50:1 - 14.7 25:1 - 7.4 12.5:1 - 4.2 This looks good, you want to be under 15 and you are. The NK percentage killed panel looks at how powerful the NK cells are and the good news is that yours aren't that strong, so they aren't going to go wild and attack the baby. IgG CONC 12.5 50:1 - 1.9 " 25:1 - 6.0 IgG CONC 6.25 50:1 - 7.8 " 25:1 - 7.5 This means that your cells respond to IVIG treatment and decrease which is a good thing! %CD3 - 84.4 %CD19 - 5.3 %CD56 - 6.1 %of CD19...

Are Twins always born via C-Section???

Thank you guys for all your replies! Blue: That is also what they told me the risk with second twin is too high and that scared me! I have not visited the hospital yet. I will be delivering in Canada so i don't know their protocol yet. But the stress of something going wrong with the second twin is enough to want a c section but also i know c section recovery is much slower. How did you all feel with c-section after? Is recovery as bad as they say? Thanx again, xoxo

IMMUNOLOGY CHATTER

Crystal Rays: I am a patient of Dr. G and he is great! At first it is all confusing and he may seem cold but he is just really shy. He does do immune treatment with lots of patients that don't need IVF and that try naturally with success. I met lots of ladies at his clinic who thought they need IVF but after meeting him he just put them on immune drugs and had success with trying naturally. I also had IVIG 4 times already and so far thank God no infections, the risk is very very very low. It is ...

Are Twins always born via C-Section???

Hi ladies, Not sure where to post this but i need some advice. I have seen two docs and both have advised me to do a C-section! They have said that i should not even consider a "natural" birth, which is something i really wanted. But they told me the risk of complications is much higher with twins and something can go wrong with the second twin on his/her way out. What are the deciding factors for c-sections vs. natural delivery with twins??? Any advice would be appreciated... Thanx...xoxo

Should we have the immunology tests now?

Hi Ros, I was in your shoes a year ago, and after two BFN i decided to investigate immune issues. I had 3 embryos put back each time and they always told me they looked perfect but each time got a BFN. I agree with Hayley. It is a personal choice. Talk to your DH and see how he feels. My DH thought i was thinking too much but he agreed to support me. I just had a "gut" feeling something was wrong. Dr. Gorgy is willing to do the tests and then work with another clinic if you don't want to cycle w...

Immunology at Lister Clinic or with Dr Gorgy???

http://www.gonative.com/search/all/?kw=d…iod=1&quality=1 I added the website above. The address is 2 devonshire street and it is 5 min walk from Dr. Gorgy's Clinic. They have two sizes premium and classic. Not a big difference in both really. Just a little big bigger. They both have a small kitchen, bathroom and free internet. Very friendly staff too! I contact a lady named Trixie and she really helps with the bookings. Her number is: 207 313 5879 xoxo

Immunology at Lister Clinic or with Dr Gorgy???

Hi B, I guess it all depends how long you stim for. I usually only stim for ten days. So he starts with the base line scan and then 3 days later another scan and 3 days later another scan but i also had daily blood tests because i had an oestradiol flare before so he wanted to keep a close eye on my bloods and how they were rising. If you need a place to stay, and very nice and not too expensive place that rents out studios is 2 devonshire street. If you want more info about them just tell me an...
