and with Dr Braverman’s incredible help and support we are today 26 weeks pregnant and we know we will be completing our story in another 14 weeks.

One after another we had 4 early miscarriages (no heartbeat detected) and 7 years of struggle, we were so devastated that we decided not to try until we have answers for our losses so after spending months of research, days & nights over the internet we learned about reproductive immunology and its role in pregnancy then we found a clinic in CA where we had done immune testing, consult and received their protocol letter to use Humira, LIT, Dexamethasone, IVIG, Lovenox etc… as we had elevated NK activity, TNF-a, complete DQ Alpha match, very low LAD B and T cells, MTHFR hetero and PAI-1 hetero. But the NK activity and TNF-a levels were not terribly elevated. The only issue we thought is DQ alpha match on both numbers which could lead to blighted ovum, missed abortion in early pregnancy. So we decided to do LIT therapy, completed 5 cycles and got to very good levels of LAD. We were cleared for cycle… we tried many cycles but could not get pregnant. We were told about egg quantity issues. But we thought there is something else we are missing here, started researching again. We found a study done in Italy on the use of G-CSF to prevent unexplained pregnancy loss, continued our research and finally found Dr Braverman! and his explanations on the Roles of G-CSF in reproductive immunology on his websites at many places. We immediately contacted him by posting a message on his website, he replied back in 10 mins, next day he called me and discussed about what can be done in our case. He was so kind to provide us an appointment for the next day, we went his office to see in person. It was incredible experience meeting him and we found the answers. He did additional testing and found we had complete DQ ALPHA, DQ BETA, HLA C and many other matches in total 10 HLA MATCHES which are extremely rare and offered the use of g-csf(Neupogen) in our next cycle.

We used G-CSF (Neupogen) in our next cycle and got the overwhelming news we are pregnant with an excellent 1st HCG level of 348. The day we heard our baby’s first heartbeat that brought tears of happiness to our eyes as we could not get to that point before.

We do not have enough words to thank Dr Braverman. His commitment to his patients, willingness and complete devotion to helping people achieve the dream of having a family is incomparable. He was the only one who told us I will find out the answer for you while others just gave up, never seen any doctor like Dr B.

Thank you so very much Dr Braverman!

Best Regards,

Thank you so much for posting this! My husband and I have 7 HLA matches as well as elevated NK cells, very high TNFa, IFNg, low Protein S, high Protein C, as well as a couple of other things. You really did give me hope. Thank you!
