Numbers were good for prog ect, lining good ect.
Followed instructions. Had blockedtubes removed
thinking that would be the answer. Still negative
a second time with DE.

4 (c)'s in freezer. Maybe I should give it another
shot. The A's didn't work fresh, B's didn't work how
could the C's possibly succeed?!

What can I do? I Have dd 17yrs old so I have been
capable of an easy successful pregnancy. I feel
like my body is toxic now.

Any help appreciated.

The Beer clinic is one that you can google to get info from if you think you have immune issues but I do want to point out that some of us start out with very low betas. Mine was only 37 on 15dpo, so I'd have also had a negative on 13dpo if I'd poasd. Stay on your meds. You may just have a slow initial start. I hope that will be the case for you. Best of luck.

I'm sorry that it's still negative. ...I don't want to give false hope, but I only had the faintest of lines on day 13's poas after I retrieved it from the wastebasket late in the evening. ...the faintest of lines on the morning of day 14... had a beta of like 33. I'm still hanging in there... 7 1/2 months along right now.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. But yes, you should do as much testing as you can to give those last embies the best chance if you need them! There's also just being on the bad side of the statistics... I hated that answer, but it does seem to be true sometimes when everything else looks good.

Best wishes!

I think if you google reproductive immunology, you will see Sher, Beer and SIRM listed. In CA, I am working with Dr. Acacio at Acacio Fertility, he used to be with SIRM in Org Cty/Los Angeles, and I have been very happy with his knowledge and advice regarding immune issues.

I asked for an earlier beta, tomorrow (1 day early) so I can get the bfn and go to next step....
Whatever that is. I won't give up till I get the official word. Then I'm going to look into
other issues that may be interfering with implantation.

Thank you for support:)

Minniet,

I'm in GA. The only doctor that I have heard of regarding this is
Toth and from what I understand his practice is a little controversial.
Googled GA for clinics that would specialize but came up wit nothing.

Made an appt with GI to check for Celiac disease and read that my RE
can test for AA and NK. If you have any thoughts on this please let me
know. I'm afraid to cycle again without answers to why no embryo will take.
I guess I may never know and may never be successful.

I do plan on looking into clinics you mentioned.

Thank you!!

Why don't you just call Dr. A's office. He is incredibly nice. You can ask for a consult (I think they may do free first consults for Resolve members) and he ACTUALLY WILL READ your chart. (This was a first for me, at least. Every other RE I met skimmed mine and mixed me up with others) He kept a copy and gave me a copy of mine back ( my chart is now about 2 inches thick), and I swear, the man actually opened up to certain pages and quoted things back to me.

His head nurse, Sylvia, is also really on the ball. She won the Resolve best IF nurse in the US, and she leaves no detail behind.

I did a consult with him just to rule him out, but I was so impressed, I am working with him now. Of all my local friends, he has gotten most everyone pregnant who had suffered numerous failures elsewhere.

Just try a call.

Sending you good wishes on your search.

PS I have not seen Toth, but I also feel he is too unorthodox. I like that Acacio seems to have been personally involved in studies or can quote them about why he does certain treatments.
