I'm doing okay - pretty amazing how we learn to compartmentalize to deal with everyday life.
I'm glad you have a plan for the next go around. I think the lovenox, especially, seems like a great addition. Have they considered adding oral steroids too? Do you know what level of NK cells they are looking for?
I meet with my RE again on Friday. I've been doing a lot of reading. I made a list of all I wanted tested. Some I have already been tested for but I'm going to have them retested just in case they have changed.
Here's what I came up with:
Anatomical issues: repeat hysteroscopy, high resolution ultrasound with doppler to check uterine blood flow, perhaps repeat the HSG (first HSG was clear and the one I had several months after the loss showed a blocked (spasmed) tube - I'm thinking maybe it could be inflamed or something)
Autoimmune/clotting issues: ANA (& all related autoantibodies - anti-Sm, etc), NK cells, Th1/Th2 ratios, protein c deficiency, protein s deficiency, antithrombin III deficiency, homocysteine levels, antiphospholipid antibodies, lupus anticoagulant (I have had factor leiden, prothrombin, and MTHFR genes tested before)
Infection issues: ureaplasma/mycoplasma, Group B strep, chlamydia, bacterial vaginosis
Endocrine issues: TSH, T3, T4, anti-thyroid antibodies
Biochemical issues: beta 3 integrin (E-tegrity test), Endometrial Receptivity test.
Do you have any other suggestions to this list?
thank you so much for thinking of me!
