Hi Dr. Braverman,

i have an appointment to come see you in your office with my husband in July but I wish i could talk to you earlier than that as I want to start trying again ASAP!
I am 42years old and am really getting tired of having miscarriages!!! I have done a lot of immune testing with Dr. Kwak and the Allen beer center- IVIG, prednisone, Lovenox, BA, Fish Oil, LIT ect....

As I write I am having another miscarriage(was 5 weeks) Most of my miscarriages happens as early as 5 weeks. I have had two 2nd trimester miscarriages which were due to incompetent cervix, so I am aware that with my next pregnancy I would need a cerclarge.

My history is so long but to make it short I was able to get pregnant naturally but would miscarry so early, my beta numbers would double the first two times and on the third I will start spotting and the numbers will come down and I will miscarry. For the past few months I was'nt able to get pregnant but my Doc. put me on Letrozole which helped me with great lining and I was able to get pregnant just on the first try (last month), but miscarried last week.

I would like to get into another cycle next month (my beta numbers are down to zero) but my appointment with you is not until July 10th. I was wondering if we could speak (Phone consultation) so i could get the blood work ordered that way by the time my husband and I come to see you all our tests results will be ready. The earlist your office has for a phone consult will be the end of July.

I have never done neupogen or intralipids. But have done IVIG which i am recently having severe reactions to it. Before I end this infertility road i would like give it my last try so that way i know I tried everything. thanks so much Dr. Braverman for taking the time to read.

Hi Dr. Braverman,

Thanks again! I called your office and was told they will call me back as soon as they speak to you in regards to what immune testing you would reqire me to do. Two weeks ago I did some immune testing and would like to give you the results ahead of time. they are as follows:

NK assay:
50:1 11.3 should be 15 or below
cd56 13.7 should be 12 or below

Th1/Th2 cytokines:
TNF 33.1 should be 30.6 or below
IFN 20.1 should be 20.5 or below

PAI-1 10 (norm 0-27)
DNA/Histones - negative
ANA - negative
APA - 1 high positive and 1 positive out of a panel of 18

My TNF has been as high as 44. Again thanks Dr. Braverman and we cannot wait to see you in July! God bless.

Dr. Braverman
