Hidden infections test - positive

Well thought I'd ask if any of you lovely ladies have done this? I sent off a sample (of af blood ewww!) And got tested for hidden infections and it came up positive for hidden C and bacterial load infection?! So I now have to take a load of antibiotics. They say these could be causing implantation problems.

My doctor thinks it's great. She had one patient have success with ivf following this and one that got pregnant before she even started her cycle. Seems to be standard procedure for a lot of abroad clinics. Hope you have same success. X

Hey I have just put a post up today asking about hidden c test... To see if anyone had it done. So how did they treat you? And how long do you have to take the antibiotics for? Sorry for all the questions... It's just I'm about to order a kit so hoping its worth it...

Hi there, they treat you with a months supply of antibiotics for you and your partner. They send a perscription by email. It worked for us! We got pregnant after this test and a hysteroscopy with implantation cuts at the same clinic. (We flew out the month before our ivf fir hysteroscopy) did hidden infections test before by sending AF in post. My GP is great and gave us the antibiotics we needed on the nhs. X
