Hi there,
We just found out that we don't have matching HLA types, but my husband results were DQa1: 02:01, 05:01 and then DqB1: 02:01, 02:02.

We have had 3 very early miscarriages and my biopsy showed high uterine NK cells. We both are homozygous MTHFR, but otherwise nothing else found in fertility screening (negative APA, ANA antithyroid etc).

Could the double 02:01 cause blighted ova or lack of placenta and be the reason for miscarriages? What is recommmended here, is there any chance of success or is donor sperm the only option?

please read my blog on HLA on my website as well as the diagnostic testing section on the website, you will then see that you have no information at all and certainly in no way do you require sperm donor. I would be happy to assist you in obtaining a correct diagnosis and treatment plan. Feel free to fill out a consult request form on my website and we can schedule a free 10 mintue chat.
