    Default 4 miscarriages in a year

    I am now having my 4th miscarriage in a year. The first, the baby grew to 6 weeks. The second and 3rd , I got my period a couple of days after my period was due (had positive preg test with both) and now my 4th I am 5 weeks and started bleeding again. I have had 2 successful pregnancies (15 yr old and 3 yr old) but can only miscarry after my 3 yr old has been born. I have lupus anticoagulant and have been using the medications for this as I used with my 3 year old. I am 42 years old and can fall pregnant very easy. Has anyone else had a similar experience? I didn't have a curet with any of my miscarriages and seemed to pass everything naturally. I would appreciate any input/advice on this as its driving me crazy!

    I'm so sorry for your losses.

    Have you spoken to an OB about it? Even a GP would be able to refer you to a fertility specialist with all of those losses. A FS would probably be your best bet for some testing to get to the cause.

    I wish you the best of luck.

    Fertility specialist I have assumed. There are still a few acronyms I am working out too!
    I am just about to embark on first pregnancy since being diagnosed with Factor V Leiden after a few losses and hoping it doesn't happen again once on the meds. Will be also pushing to get progesterone checked.

    I'm so sorry. I have lupus anticoagulant as well, but finally have managed to get one to stick. What drugs are/were you taking? I am still injecting Clexane and taking Asprin, high dose Folate and Progesterone pessaries. I also took prednisone and 6 times the normal daily dose of eostrogen until 20 weeks. The eostogen was doubled at 5.5 weeks when I had a bleed, and my pessaries were also doubled to 2 per day at that time until 20 weeks as well. I hope your FS (fertility specialist :-)) has some ideas for you. I am now 27 weeks and keeping my fingers and legs crossed.

    I am taking aspirin and Fragmin, I did this with my 3 year old pregnancy and had no problems at all. This miscarriage I only took the aspirin, though the other 3 I was taking the Fragmin as soon as I found out I was pregnant. Why are you taking folate and progesterone? Is that because of the PCOS?

    Folate is used to make healthy red blood cells, and to help with anemia which I have struggled with for years. Progesterone is often abnormally low in people with autoimmune problems. Most people doing stimulated or medicated cycles with IVF use progesterone support until 12 weeks when the placenta takes over production, but this can even be inadequate with autoimmune issues, so my FS is having me use the pessaries until 36 weeks. I am just going to try to find some more info for you :-)

    Thank you for your help. I have never had my progesterone checked, so maybe that is the problem seeing as lupus anti coagulant is an auto immune. How far pregnant are you at the moment (congrats) and how many M/C have you had? Were you taking the same medications throughout all of them?
