Hi Ladies, 

I am fairly new to MFC and was wondering if someone can point me in the right direction. I have completed the immune testing and LIT treatments at mfc. I had two frozen embies at another clinic and just received the devastating news that my FET didn’t work. I want to move on to my 3rd IVF (1st at MFC). The next available appointment for Dr. V. is Feb 28th!!! I am worried that there are certain medications/vitamins that I should be on between now and then that can increase my egg quality, is there someone at the clinic I can call to discuss this? Also, I want to look into more aggressive treatments such as IVIG, is this done before egg retrieval or only around time of transfer? We finished our LIT treatment in August, should I be looking into doing one more before my next IVF cycle? Is there someone else at the clinic I can talk to about what I can be doing in the interim? I guess come feb 28th I want to cycle and use this time to complete any other treatments.  Please Help! 

Thank you!!!!!!!

I am sorry to hear about your recent negative results.  :(


I would give Helen a call and see if she can shed some light on your immune treatment questions.  I just saw her yesterday so I know she is in the office and will be until the end of the week when the clinic closes.


Wishing you and your DH the very best of luck on your upcoming cycle!
