My husband and I have been trying for years to get pregnant and are now approaching 40 years of age. We have tried several rounds of IUI and natural cycle IVF. I have stage 3 Endometriosis, very low AMH, and my husband's sperm quality/count is good. During the natural cycle IVF attempts we were able to get good embryo's, but they stopped growing after 5 days. Recently I found out that I have the anti-Kell antibody with a titer of 4. My husband's red cells are (-) for the big K antigen and (+) for the little k antigen - but I have no idea what that means! Is he considered Kell antigen negative? We have been talking about using donor eggs or adopted embryos to increase our fertility chances. How does my anti-Kell antibody influence those options? I appreciate your thoughts and recommendations in this matter.
