    Had Intralipids after 7 ivf attempts – did anyone feel period pain after the infusion and had lot of spotting? Wondering if this is safe to try again if pregnancy test positive with all the spotting and period like pain i had? My clinic never called me back. Unsure what todo. Any suggestions welcome.

      I had intralipids through most of my pregnancies. I had no problem at all. I recommend as it won’t hurt

    Never give up. I’m doing egg doner. Im 45 nearly 46. On my 12th cycle with one embryo left. Had 7 miscarriages and just found out I’ve got nkc so I’m going to have intralipid too. I’ll be also on progesterone pessaries and clexane injections and predisdone. Praying all goes well.

      I have just read this post from you in 2018…you were about to try intralipid infusion for another try at holding a pregnancy. My daughters wondering if she should try this with her slightly elevated NK cells. How did you get along with it and have you succeeded. Thankyou.

    I am 43 and have had 9 ivf/icsi treatments over the last 14 years, with 2 positive tests that led to very early miscarriages.
    My infertility is unexplained, eggs sperm etc all good. So I sometimes wonder if i should have given up too as maybe this wasn’t meant to be for me……but crazy i know i am giving it one last shot!!
    I am having donor eggs for the first time and my first Intralipid on Monday. I was unsure on intralipids and was thinking today about cancelling my appointment on Monday but this has given me some encouragement and peace of mind!
    I wish you all the best Ead on what ever decision you make, its certainly not an easy one!

    I have been trying to conceive 11 years we have unexplained infertility and had 4 iui and 6 icsi / ivf treatments and never got pregnant never got a positive result never ever.
    Last time my doctor scratched the uterus lining and gave me Intralipid one period before and gave me ( Co Q10 ) like a vitamin that gives you better egg quality
    And my husband took 3 months before ivf 2 fertility men vitamins ( fertil pro men & fertil pro mtl)
    And guess what i was pregnant first time in my life
    Don’t give up and try Intralipid also try (co Q10) and the men vitamin for your husband.
    I continued Intralipid after a positive and 2 more the next 2 months.
    Thank God we tried it.

    We had 17 miscarriages getting pregnant on our own but not staying past 7 weeks, we did intralipid once & have a healthy 3 year old. I wouldn’t count it out & it’s nothing harmful so why not try it before you try all these other expensive tests & treatments.

    The RE also said he would put me on intralipids and steroids and maybe other drugs when and if, I get any embryos that PGS test okay.

      Ead- I think you should go for it! why not try everything. I had numerous early misscariages as well and did intralipid once and have a healthy baby boy. Now we’re trying to get pregnant with #2 without intralipids and guess what, I can’t stay pregnant again.

    I have gotten pregnant relatively easily even at the age of 39 and 40. I had 4 miscarriages with my husband and all 4 were between 6-11 weeks and all had heartbeats. My progesterone was a bit low and I have borderline hypothyroidism. My husbands sperm tests are fine. I am also a SMA, carrier he is not. After hearing from most REs and OBs docs that my age was the reason for my miscarriages I saw another RE and RPL specialist who had more tests run on us. He says I have active nk cells and me and my husband are a partial DQ alpha match which is what is causing my pregnancy losses. He suggested I try ivf egg banking and when/if we get embryos, test them and transfer 1 at a time. So now we have gone through 3 failed egg retrieval cycles with that doc. All 3 cycles only yielded 2-4 eggs retrieved in each cycle, all fertilized easily however, only 1 embryo made it to pgs testing and that was abnormal. Now I am a whopping 43, should we give up? I already know about egg donors.
