My FS wants to implement immunotherapy with my current IVF/ICSI/DE cycle. This includes Intragam and Clexane. Can dr give me some more info on these injections as well as an estimated cost? Is it really necessary and will it help at all?Wednesday, March 26th, 2008
Low molecular weight heparin, i.e. Clexane, is usually prescribed when the patient is suffering from clotting disorders, immune disorders such as anti phospholipids syndrome etc. It has a profound positive effect on the outcome, but can be a very expensive therapeutic intervention.( I am not sure of the approximate cost) Some physicians will prescribe it empirically, depending on the patients history, with good results and should ultimately be left up to the discretion of the attending physician.
