I have a follow-up tomorrow with my RE regarding my failed cycles. I'd be interested to hear any recommendation or even questions that I could ask my RE. I am aware that there is a list here of WTF questions. However, it would be nice to hear more suggestions specific to my case. Here goes the summary:
me- PCOS (retroverted uterus)
dh - male factor
4 failed IUI
IVF with ICSI (agonist trigger protocol) (endometrin and estrace for luteal phase support)
- 23 eggs, 17 were mature 12 fertilized and 9 made it to day 5
fresh transfer - BFP; bleeding at 5-6 weeks; heartbeat and growth stopped at 7/8 weeks.
FET 1 (Estrace and Crinone) - negative
FET 2 (Estrace and Crinone) - chemical (beta dropped)
FET 3 of 2-day5 (Estrace and Crinone) - negative
HSG, Sonohysterogram, Hysteroscopy - all normal
Immune testing, clotting disorder, karyotyping - blood test screening all came back normal
After my early loss/miscarriage last year, my RE did not encourage me to do PGD since the likelihood of having all bad eggs/embryos is supposed to be low. A year later I have only 4 embryos left and all failed cycles, I'm at a loss. We don't have the funds to do another fresh cycle anytime soon so I'll probably have to hit the bank once again. Maybe it'll be worth doing PGD next time.
I have tried acupuncture, herbal supplements (as well as DH), BBT, meditation, counselling, and other tips and recommendation that were given to us by the fertile people around us. Is there anything else that I could do? Would it be worth asking for intralipids, IVIG, Aspirin, etc? Any further testing? Autoimmune? Alloimmune? Perhaps there was/were some stuff that got missed or have not been explored?
Thanks for reading this.
