    Default Recurrent miscarriages

    Hello.

    I wanted to hear from ladies who have had multiple losses and what was causing them if they found out and if you had a healthy pregnancy after?

    I have a double uterus so I know im high risk but my fs says I get pregnant fast so thats not a problem they just haven't made it past 6 weeks

    Ive just had a d&c 6 days ago and want to ttc again after first af but im so scared something bad will happen again

    Ive had 2 definite losses and 1 chemical

    Sorry to hear glitter, must be very frustrating!

    I can't help you as I'm yet to receive even one BFP, but I was wondering if there's anything they can do with your double uterus to increase your chances of a sticky bean? I'm not sure of the physical make up of your system, but if they're two separate structures, is it possible to have one removed to lower the risks for you?

    Default Recurrent miscarriages

    Sorry for your losses xox

    I've just been through what feels like a million blood tests. I was positive for anti nuclear antibodies so had to take aspirin for my last pregnancy. I was tested again during the pregnancy for ana and it was negative- but I lost the pregnancy anyway. Now they have just finished testing for some rarer disorders and I have elevated homeocystine levels. Not drastically high (not enough to conclude that it's my issue), but now I'm on aspirin, high dose folate and high dose fish oil.
    We are just waiting for mine and dps chromosome testing to come back and if there's no issue with that we will try again and hope the folate works.
    The last thing to try after that is high natural killer cells.
    I hope you get some answers xox

    Default Recurrent miscarriages

    I'm so sorry too I've had 3 chemical pregnancies/early miscarriages in a row last year, all ivf pregnancies and all at 5/6 weeks along.

    Have you been tested for clotting disorders? A fertility specialist might get you to try aspirin or clexane injections to help get you over the line.

    You could also think about getting tested for natural killer cells.

    I'm 7 months pregnant now and never thought I would get there so don't give up hope, you'll get there eventually.

    Hi,

    The condition is called Uterus didelphys. There isnt anything they can do becuase they are seperate but fused together thats why it wasnt detected on u/s years ago. Both uteri are about 6cm so i just have a risk of going into preterm labor but thats differnt for each person, if they tried to remove one they would destroy eveything i think .

    here is a link on where you can get a bit of an idea of my repoductive system...its very rare and can be a pain in the *** too lol

    Im seeing an FS and he said for me to first try get pregnant after my mc in Nov which i did my first real cycle but now that ive mc'ed again and this one if calassified as my third im eligable for all the genetic testing and everything else that needs to be tested.

    I have had low estrogen a while back and my prodresterone was only 21 for this pregnancy and i had low and slow rising HCG so at the begining i lost a bit of hope and expected the worst, so we are thinking maybe it is a hormonal thing,im really not keen on the injections but if it gets me my healthy baby then bring it on! my levels at my 6 weeks from o day were 318 so i had a feeling something bad was going to happen.

    i have to have a blood test to do in 5 weeks or less and it has SOOOOO many things to test for god knows what half it is maybe you will becuase you have had some tests done.

    Anti-mullerian test,LH,FSH,Oestradiol,prolactin,anti-cardiolipin antibodies,lupus anticoagulant protin C/ protein S / Anti-thrombin 111,activated protin C resistance: factor V Leiden,prothrombin gene G20210 mutation, MTHFR genotype, homocystein,karyotyping,TSH only, glucose challange test-1 hour,blood group and antibodies

    Sorry to hear of all your heartbreak. Never gets easier.

    I conceived my DD with Clomid back in 2003, then ever since I had her I could never fall pregnant again. Tried multiple cycles of ivf, just ended up in miscarriage after miscarriage and multiple chemicals.

    I then started googling like a mad woman, and found a reproductive immunologist. Went to see him, and had a few BTs done. Turns out I have an immune problem that no FS had ever picked up on before. I then conceived on a triple dose of Clomid, and high dose of steroids. I'm now 38 weeks pregnant and haven't had any bleeding or anything at all.

    Feel free to PM me for more info


    Xx

    yeah he said it was a blightum ovum and bub has stoped growing early on even though we could see bub but it was measuing behind so must have passed 4 days before my first u/s i was so happy to see there was someting there then everything came crashing down, im trying to think postive but it can be hard.

    congrats on your baby boy! not too much longer now! im really hoping its not gentetics becuase IVF is very costly so im leaning towards the hormonal imbalance or immune issue like yourself.

    I am all stiched up inside at the moment becuase my Ob fixed skin tag that my old ob left when he removed my viginal septum in 09, i dont think dp could notice but i could and i asked him to do something while doing the d&c if he thought it should be delt with and he did. so i cant try yet anyway and i need to plan it around a wedding in october becuase we need to fly to syd and go on a cruise boat for 2 days so im thinking of trying after my first af and i guess until we get lucky i guess. ahhhhh all this stuff does my head in sometimes!

    Im so sorry for your losses.

    Last year i had one miscarriage July at just short of 7 weeks
    Then another loss end of november at just over 5 weeks, i fell pregnant the next cycle (i didnt wait an entire cycle before trying again) and im now 10 weeks pregnant. They never did testing on my previous pregnancies so i dont know what the issue was. I know technically its not considered recurrent but i thought i would share my experience anyways
