Hi - my story is as follows:

2008 - healthy boy full term
2011 - healthy girl full term
2012 - stillborn son at 23 weeks - placental abruption. Complete shock.
Jan 2014 - MC 12 weeks (heartbeat detected), ended up with sepsis, treated with ABs
July 2014 - MC 7 weeks (heartbeat present) haemorrhage then loss. No chromosomal abnormalities. Was on asprin & high dose folate
Dec 2014 - MC 7 weeks (heartbeat present) same again, haemorrhage then loss - was on clexane injections daily, high dose folate, anti biotics, progesterone pessaries

I have not had my uNK cells checked do you think this should be done? My ob is reluctant to use prednisolone in a patient with a history of sepsis? Do you agree? I feel like my body has healed from that and that the sepsis was picked up at the hospital as a complication of the miscarriage. Is there something else I could do to test my immune system? It is so frustrating to just keep failing...I am 38, is this just age related? I don't know what to think as I have two healthy children. I am devastated by what has happened since 2012 and would do anything to have a healthy baby. I am in Australia - in Melbourne - is there anyone you could refer me to, who is as at the forefront of all this as you?

I agree that it is safe to use prednisone at this time regardless of your past history of sepsis. But before I could make recommendations on your treatment you would need to have our full immune panel perfrormed. Best would be to fill out a consult request from the website and we can schedule a free 10 minute consult to reveiw.
