I'm wondering if anyone else has experience of the body almost attacking an embryo after a transfer in IVF? I've had it after every one (3 so far) and they have all resulted in a failed cycle.
I have been on levothyroxine for a few years for my Hashimotos disease. My antibodies were 1300 at their peak and currently 607. My TSH is 2.5 this month this has jumped up from 0.62 last month......maybe as a result of the medication we are taking for our current IVF round.
I started taking steroids, blood thinner injections, baby aspirin, and my levothyroxine was upped to 100mg in October.
We had the embryo transfer on Friday and on Saturday night and Sunday morning I had really bad throbbing pain in my knuckles of my right hand again, just like before which is making me think this one will be a negative too. Heart breaking and soul destroying to be honest.
I have been to see a private endocrinologist who upped my dose to 100mg from 75mg. He was nice, helpful etc but keeping upping my dose doesn't seem to be helping with this recurring problem. It feels like my immune system is attacking the embryo and not letting it implant.
I am gluten, soy, alcohol, dairy free and am not sure what else we can do to avoid this happening again.
Has anyone experienced anything like this? It would be interesting to know if anyone has been to a see someone in London with a fertility endocrinology background or an immunologist?
Thank you so much.
