A thoughtful woman...on a moving train - Stock Photo credit: pkavitha1There are five categories of immune problems that can cause miscarriages, infertility, implantation failures and chemical pregnancies. Forty-five percent of women with infertility and implantation failure or IV-ET failures are Category 5 patients.

This means that they have elevated CD 56+ cells that produce tumor necrosis factor (a chemotherapy molecule) that either damages the embryo, the trophoblast (placental cell) or the lining of the uterus (decidua) shortly after the start of pregnancy.

There are often symptoms in women who have antibodies to serotonin and neurotransmitters that I have learned about.

- Fibromyalgia: achiness in the small joints and muscles usually in the morning.
- Increasing depression that has no apparent reason.
- Waking early in the morning project oriented and unable to get back to sleep. I meet many of you online at this time. You retreat to your computers and find solace there.
- Sweating at night especially over the chest and the breastbone.
- Increasing PMS symptoms.
- Increasing "bitchiness" for no apparent reasons.
- Panic attacks including a feeling of not being able to handle the work load that before was easy for you.
- Bad uterine lining of less than 8 mm when tested on day 13 or 14.
- Poor stimulation even with mega doses of Fertinex, Pergonal, Gonal F or other drugs.
- Hormone levels that crash in the middle of the cycle.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
