    Hi Dr Sher,
    I’m a 36 yr old female from Australia who has been trying to conceive for the past 6 years. Over the past 6 years I have been pregnant 3 times and lost all 3, the latest at 11 1/2 weeks.

    I had a lap surgery in 2013 for endometriosis which was growing on my ovaries. I fell pregnant early the following year after this lap surgery but haven’t been able to fall pregnant since.

    My husband has been checked out and everything is all ok on his side. During 2 attempts at ivf in 2016 I found out I have a high reading for natural cell killers.

    Just wanted some advice on where you think we should go next. Is it worth trying to get the dqa test I’ve been reading about done or just go ahead and try another round of ivf with the clexane and prednisone treatment?

    Our first round of Ivf we collected 8 eggs, and ended up with 1 egg to transfer (fragmented) and nothing to freeze (transferred day 5). Our second round we only collected 3 eggs and again 1 made it to transfer nothing to freeze (this embryo only had very slight fragmentation and was transferred Day 3). Throughout this process and months before I was visiting an acupuncturist and taking baby aspirin daily.

    If you could please let me know when you can what you would advise as a next step that would be great.

    Thanks so much for your help we really appreciate it.

    Belinda and Nathan Benjamin
