Hello,
I hope some-one may be able to help with some information. I am interested
in hearing from any-one whose infertility has been attributed to auto-immune
problems and if so, can you advise what  treatment was prescribed.  The
immunological problems that I have read about are:
A) lack of pregnancy blocking antibody
B) antibodies to antiphospholipids (affects implantation)
C) anti-DNA antibodies ( antibodies to embryo's DNA)
D) anti-sperm antibodies
E) Elevated levels of Natural killer cells.
Also does any-one have experience of successful treatment at Chicago Medical
School that specializes in immune caused infertility,
Kerry
