    Default Recurrent Miscarriage Advice

    Hi I'm just wanting some advice on recurrent miscarrages,from those of you who who have experienced this.

    what kinds of tests and investigations have you had and did they find anything?

    I am currently having my 7th miscarriage, DH and i have had genetic testing and whole heaps of bloods etc but they all came up negative. I have an appointment with my FS tomorrow and would like to go in there with some suggestions on tests that he might be able to do.

    I don't think i can deal with hearing "it's just one of those things" again, Cause surely to god there has to be something else going on to cause 7 m/c.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    Did the FS come up with further tests or treatment for you to try?

    I was like you and had several (4) MC's after having healthy babies. My bloods and hysteroscopy came back normal. Have recently started progesterone and aspirin and am hoping that does the trick for me.

    Hope you got some info

    Hey Electric Rodeo,
    No answers yet, FS is re-running all the bloods that I had done 4yrs ago (which didn't show anything unusual) to see if anything has changed. However I have to wait till AF comes before I can have them done.

    If nothing shows up with bloods, hysteroscopy will be the next step... And as a last resort if I do end up m/c again FS will do a d&c to see if there are any chromosomal issues that may be causing the rpt m/c.

    My old OB told me after my c-section with DS2 that I have alot of scar tissue and adhesions in my uterus from my first c-section, So my guess is that my uterus is the cause of my troubles, as I hadn't had any m/c issues before having my 1st.

    FS also said that if everything turns up inconclusive, next time I fall pg he will give me a combination of progesterone, aspirin and steroids and hopefully that will help, as the progesterone alone didn't work for me this time around.

    that the progesterone and aspirin keep working for you.

    You sound a lot like me in what had been happening. I thought I must have had adhesions/scarring after a traumatic 4 th delivery/recovery. Ob did the hys and D&C at same time. he must have sent something off as I got a bill lol.
    I was quite disheartened when the results came back fine and the nurse in recovery told me I must be thinking about getting pg too much and it's not working (grrrrrr).


    I hope your answers come soon

    You could try taking Elevit (or another pregnancy vitamin supplement) to get your vit & mineral levels up. This is what a friend of mine did after MC's. They are OK to take prior to pregnancy too. Also, in Brisbane there is a wonderful acupuncturist/naturopath that deals with women's health and maternal well-being. So perhaps you could find someone like her in Canberra?

    Oh electric, I would be so annoyed if someone said i was I was thinking about getting pregnant too hard, as a reason for it not working!!

    I really hope I get some answers too! It's the not knowing what's causing the recurrent m/c that is the worst i think.

    Thanks Brunfelsia, i never thought of natural therapies for miscarraige, yet i know women who have accupuncture while doing IVF . I will look into that this week i think.

    SO turns out that i have managed to fall pregnant again, which means I have now fallen pregnant every cycle for the last 3...

    I have to say I'm a bit shocked that it's happened again esp as DH has been away most of the month for work and we only dtd Once or twice, and i have worked out my dates with the last 2 m/c, and it worked out that i started miscarrying on exactly day 38 both times.

    Today i'm day 37 so i'm really hoping that this one sticks and i make it though the next couple of days. However i did a second pg test this arvo and it was a really strong dark line (darker than the one i did i Wed) and i'm feeling quite nauseous. So hopefully that's a good sign. But i'm too nervous to go to the fert clinic for early pg monitoring in case i jinx myself or something!

    Congrats!
    I'd get up to the fer clinic as soon as you can, were you to start prg and aspirin when you got a BFP? Do you have your prescription or do you need to get it?

    I hope this is the one for you, let us know how you get on. Might see you in the nov thread

    I have no idea if i was to start taking anything this time around. I was supposed to be waiting till AF arrived, then have all the investigation bloods done again, but... well... ended up getting a BFP instead.

    I took prg last month, and still have left over, was considering taking them but don't know. If everything is ok is too much prg bad? Will just have to wait till tuesday till i can speak to the fert clinic as it's a Public holiday here on Monday.
