Hi everyone. I think I read somewhere that the Hughes Syndrome Foundation is always looking for specialists to add to their list. I just wanted to share my good experience that I had today with a consultant at Addenbrookes hospital in Cambridge. Dr/Mr Perry is a consultant haematologist who does a specialist joint haematology/obstetric clinic. I was referred to him due to my pregnancy history and repeat positive lupus antibodies. I'm currently 22 weeks pregnancy on aspirin and heparin. He was fantastic, the most knowledgeable consultant I've seen to date. He looked at all my family history and my past medical history, is repeating all my antibody tests twice during pregnancy to check I'm on the right meds and said exactly what I've thought all along that Lupus Antibodies CAN cause primary infertility. This is due to the antibody affecting implantation. He also said that had I not fallen pregnant naturally then he would have put me on blood thinners to conceive. (I'm not on any medication normally) I'm so happy to have seen someone with so much knowledge and understanding. He was such a lovely guy too. Thumbs up for the NHS on this one!!!
