Hello
I have had 2 miscarriages that I know of and have been trying to get pregnant since 2011. I have done 2 IUIs and they were not successful. I did some tests and the tests showed I have positive AnAs. My fertility clinic said that had nothing to do with my miscarriages. I don't believe them. They want me to do ivf and I am reluctant since I won't carry the baby due to these Ana's. what can I do ? I am confused? Need some advice and guidance.

Thank you
Christina

It is related to the UC and positive ANA. You should not do another IVF without a complete immune evaluation . I would be happy to help you with this, simply fill out a consult request on the website.

Thank you for responding. I did do a ton of blood tests which ones would I need ? I live in Canada so hard to come see you especially the cost alone. How do you know that those r causing my fertility problems ? What tests would you do? Have you had anyone with uc ?

I have quite a few patients with UC , the testing I would do no one has done and you dont need to come here to NY for any of the testing. Once he consult is done , (we can do by phone or email) we can order the tests for you.

How much is the consult? How much are the tests?
