So, after over six months of waiting, insisting and to-ing and fro-ing , my fertility clinic has agreed to prescribe me steroids for the frozen embryo transfer of our one and only frozen euploid embryo. Over the last five years i have had two miscarriages (after getting naturally pregnant) and four failed cycles of IVF. I have raised levels of cardiolipin antibodies and I need to take steroids because this year, through a immunoprofiling biopsy, I was found to have a very high count of killer cells in my uterus. I am supposed to start the protocol for FET with my next cycle and I have been told to start taking steroids only from the actual day of the transfer of the embryo. I will then have to self isolate until pregnancy test day.
Has anyone here had a similar experience? If so, did you start taking the steroids BEFORE the transfer rather than on the actual day of the transfer? Has anyone else had raised levels of cardiolipin antibodies and did you take blood thinners during the transfer?
This is our last embryo - our last shot at having a child through IVF. I just want to make sure we do everything we can during this process - I do trust my clinic and at the same time I do not want to trust them blindly- I am sure all of you know what I mean.
Any shared experience and advice you have about any of the abo r would be HUGELY HELPFUL AND MASSIVELY APPRECIATED!
Thank you ladies!
