Good news about the antibodies.

What was the planned course of action suggested by your UK OB? Did the doctor have any suggestions for you, or was it a 'wait and see' approach? Is it possible that the US doctor is suggesting this as he/she doesn't have any other suggestions for you?

My best friend in the UK has been in the unexplained fertility hold for about 4 years now. She is 36, has a son from her first marriage (he is 8) and she and her husband have both been tested--and both deemed fine. Their doc wants them to go with IVF, as he has no other suggestions for them, but for now they can't decide whether to do so or not, as they're not sure how many tries they can afford (the are postcode lottery excluded from any free IVF attempts).

I'm glad you've got the herbs though, if it helped the first time then it should help again (hopefully)!

The UK doctor said to just keep trying till we got a BFP then immediately take Clexane injections. Quite different here if you have the same disorder, from what I've heard, since most US doctors want a woman to wait until there's an actual heartbeat. In our case, that was way too late. Glad we had Kyle there instead of here, whew!

The U.S. doctor hasn't suggested anything else to us & didn't even care what we did in England. Since having Kyle, we've only been trying to conceive (TTC) 3 months & got pregnant in September but again had an early loss. However, we had a lot of stress going on & I truly believe it wasn't the right time for us.

Anyway, IVF is just so darn costly no matter what country you're in & we certainly don't want to go in debt for it. The PGD (preimplantation genetic diagnosis) apparently can only test 9 out of 23 chromosomal issues, so it can't even detect everything but maybe more in the future. Still, who has $5,000 laying around to do this along with the IVF. Insurance sees it as experimental and not necessary unless you can prove you really need to have it done.

Any chance for you to "shop" around for a fertility specialist or OB-GYN that is willing to listen to you a bit more?? I believe in IVF. But I also think way too many doctors are jumping ahead and skipping alot of the less invasive ways to get pregnant.

Just wanted to update this thread.

We didn't need IVF at all because after only one month of really trying, I am pregnant & due September 16, 2007. We had our first early ultrasound this morning at the IVF clinic since they are still monitoring me, which is kinda cool because its extra special treatment. :)
