Hi Dr Braverman,

I am hoping you can help me provide some insight. I recently got a BFN after a transfer of a PGS tested normal embryo, I also did IVIG. I am 41 years old and had a birth 3 years ago (also IVF). Our inital diagnosis was only male factor (we are using donor sperm), but I am sure age and perhaps immune issues is an issue now. I have since had 4 transfers (frozen - 3 from previous cycles and one from a recent IVF)) 2 chemical, a BFN and other BFN after we did PGS. I did a complete immune work up and found to have very slightly elevated natural killer cells and low lads. My dr is now suggested that we do LIT before the next transfer. My concern is that the IVIG didn't work, so not sure that the LIT will work or is worth it. Also, because we are using donor sperm, how effective will the LIT be? Any insight will be much appreciated.

Dr. Braverman

I do not beleive you even have a diagnosis , so recommending any therapy is not warranted at this time. LIT I do not beleive offers any advantage and the LAD test is out dated and offers very little to a diagnosis. I suggest a full and complete workup to make a diagnosis then I can assist you wtih therapy. Even IVIG may not have been used in correct dose and frequency, or maybe you needed other ancillary therapies. Best is to fill out a consult request on the website and we can schedule a free SKYPE or telephone consult to review your case.
