Hi there,

Do you believe that the earlier the loss the stronger the immune response? I have had 4 chemical pregnancies, and just having another one currently - I have high NK cells, and low suppresssion with IVIG (ie my NK percentage didnt reduce very much with added IVIG in test tube).

Yes it is possible that a stronger immune response can lead to earlier losses. Forget the IVIG /NK suppression test it is not valid. Nor is looking at NK cells as the sole reason for your losses. You would need a complete evaluation of your immune system to make a correct diagnosis .
