First question: why IVIG and intrillipids....never heard of both being done at the same time. It is normally one or the other. IVIG is more expensive. We did intrillipids (2 infusions before our last transfer). Bring a good book...it takes about 3 hours for the infusion. If you go onto Dr Beers site, he has some good info on intrillipids.
I did prednisone (high doses) and Fragmin (like Lovenox--blood thinner) with that FET also. The prednisone has some nasty side effects so be prepared for weight gain and bloating. Try to ween yourself off them when it comes time (I cut cold turkey once and will never do that again).
Neupogen and chloroquine are my last 'long shot' meds to try (along with the other meds I am on-pred, fragmin, intrillipids) before moving onto surrogacy. I have to be 100% gluten free, dairy free and egg free for 3 months prior to them allowing us to cycle again. I am doing a paleo/anti inflammatory diet.
Have you had any immune testing? I see your from the States They have more options to test for immune disorders and inflammation than in Canada. Best of luck.
