Does NK killer lead to zero implantation?

Hello! I am curious... if you have NK killer cells, will that always result in BFN? Alternatively, if you've always achieved a BFP (with starting levels of say 130 or 400 on day 12p5dt, each with 48-hour doubling), but resulted in chemical or blighted ovum or miscarriage, is there any concern with NK killer cells? Or would that be a wasted test. Thank you in advance!

There is a great deal of controvercy about natural killer cells in reproduction. There is evidence that the ones that can be measured in the blood are very different than the ones which might be found in the uterus. I am not sure what we are measuring. Therefore, I do not think we have an answer to your question. Also, I do not know that treatment of natural killer cells provides a benefit.
Good luck.
