    Default Any recommendations of what I can do/ take?

    Hi all,
    It's been about 7 weeks since I had my second miscarriage for the year and I am slowly working my way back.
    I am not sure when I will start trying again,there is no reason I can't start right away medically but I am not yet ready to go through it all given my history and I want to make sure I give myself the best possible chance as I fear I am down to my last try ( I don't think my partner will let me try more than one more time)
    My history,I had a still birth many years ago at 34 weeks but that was from lack of care from the hospital and could have been avoided.
    In late April this year I miscarried around 6 weeks and in August this year I miscarried around 8 -9 weeks. It was a missed miscarriage and I
    opted to use the misoprostol tablets again which are not for the faint hearted but I didn't want to take any risks with surgery given my age.
    I handled the first miscarriage really well all things considered,I just chalked it down to bad luck but this second one has taken it's toll especially after the first ultrasound revealed a nice strong healthy heartbeat.
    My partner and I have both had karyotype testing and it came back as normal. My ultrasound on my uterus came back as as young persons uterus ( I am older than I would like to be for trying to have children) and my progesterone is supposedly good as well. The other tests came back good as well ( auto immune,blood clotting) so it's been put down to bad luck.
    The doctor recommended I take folate and iodine and to stay healthy but that's about all.
    I am currently taking ubiquinol in the hopes it may help my egg quality and I will be seeing a naturopath very soon.
    At this stage I am willing to try anything so please feel free to make suggestions.
    The one thing I do have on my side is that I can get pregnant very easily,the first this year was our first try and the second our second try 2 cycles after the miscarriage. I have had one cycle already since the second miscarriage and have ovulated for the second time already since so everything has gone back to normal pretty fast.
    Thanks in advance!

    Hi, I had 3 miscarriages in six months starting September last year. The doctors couldn't find anything wrong exactly, the just weren't taking. Like u the first one was a shock so I felt ok with it but the second had me a mess. By the third one I was just happy I qualified to go to a fertility clinic and see if there was anything wrong. I began having the testing and fell pregnant out if the blue within a month, I am now 24wks with a strong healthy bub on the way. As hard as it is to hear sometimes it does boil down to bad luck and nothing anyone can say will make that feel like a good enough answer. I couldn't read ur post and not reply as I know what you are going through. My only advice is to hang in there, it can happen. Xxxx good luck

    Thank you so much for your reply ChannyV, I really appreciate it.
    It is hard to believe that you can be so unlucky and clearly we both have been.
    It's wonderful to hear that you are 24 weeks and going strong.
    All the best to you and thank you for giving me some hope x

    I really hope it happens for you, it's so frustrating to be able to fall so easily but not stick. I also know all the comments of "at least you can get pregnant", "everything happens for a reason" and "it wasn't meant to be" don't help. I can't promise it will happen for u but I know the only way to go is keep on trying and hoping xx

    Has your dh's swimmers been tested? Motility, count and morphology can all contribute. I'm sorry to hear of your losses and hope you get some answers soon.

    No he hasn't been tested. I was going to look into it but read on a few forums that it's hard to get an accurate determination because it could change every time? Am not sure if this is true and the specialist didn't seem too concerned but it might be worth looking into.
    I know his swimmers are fast,there's no issue there.
    My current partner isn't the father of my daughter I lost so long ago so maybe I should get him tested just to be sure.

    Definitely look into getting him tested. It's so simple and could really help. Morphology is how the sperm is structured. My fs described sperm DNA structure like a ladder, if some of the steps are broken then the whole thing can break. Meaning you may get to a certain point, say 4 weeks pregnant, but miscarry later. If they test his sperm they will look at all three - Morph, motility and count.

    I don't have any known fertility issues but my dh has all three issues with his sperm. We had to go through ivf because his was so bad. However, during cycles we once fell pregnant naturally but it ended in miscarriage. Ivf helped by picking out the absolute best looking sperm at each sample. He also took a heap of supplements to help.
