    Default 2 Chemical Pregnancies in 3 cycles

    If you get the time to read this, thank you.
    I have a healthy 2yo boy and we have been trying for baby no.2 since July. We fell pregnant in July, got a positive preg test at 14DPO and then went on to bleed/miscarry three days later. We took a month off as per doctors orders and fell pregnant the next cycle (Sep) only to have the same thing happen again. Are these classified as chemical pregnancies? And what should I do? Get testing or put it down to sheer bad luck. Our first pregnancy (prior to my son) ended at 19w due to spina bifida and other complications. I'm pretty scared that we'll never get baby no.2 and am confused as to why the pregnancies are ending before the 5 week mark?

    Thanks so much for your advice.

    They are classified as biochemical pregnancies if you miscarry before the ultrasound confirms a pregnancy in the uterus. How young are you?

    Hi Doctor. I'm 31 and otherwise healthy. I do suffer occassional anxiety but it's under control using relaxation methods (not on meds). Apart from that, very healthy.

    Sorry Doctor - Can I also ask whether waiting for one cycle still applies after a biochemical pregnancy or can we keep trying straight away?

    Thanks Dr Glenn. If it occurs a third time should I seek testing?
