Hello. I'm new to Bubhub, but I'm really hoping I can get some advice here.
In the past 12 months I have experienced 3 miscarriages. First at 6 weeks, second at 4 weeks (chemical I guess), and third a missed miscarriage which I ended up having a d&c at 10 weeks as I wasn't miscarrying naturally. We fell pregnant very easily every time. All "first trys". So I assumed I was super fertile with something going on causing miscarriage.
For the last miscarriage I saw a fertility specialist and she recommended a d&c. I was not told of ANY risks by her, and was led to believe it is a very common procedure and safe. So I went ahead with it.
3 months later, I still hadn't got AF. And I had been returning positive pregnancy tests during that 3 month period. So I went back to the specialist - she ordered blood tests - and turns out there was still "product" (as they call it) left behind. My HCG levels were stuck around 40.
I had to have a second d&c to remove the remaining "product". Again - no risks of scarring (or anything) disclosed to me. That second d&c was performed in November 2013.
Now I can't fall pregnant. I know it's only been 5 cycles since the last d&c, but we fell pregnant so easily last year that now I am very concerned I have suffered scarring from the multiple d&cs. I'm freaking myself out reading research about Asherman's syndrome (scarring after a d&c).
I guess I am posting here as I'd really like to know if anyone has been what I have been through but ended up falling pregnant. Or if anyone has suffered scarring from multiple d&cs (Asherman's syndrom) and how did you find out?
The information out there is so contradictory. One site says it's "very rare" to get scarring, yet I just read a medical study saying 40% of patients undergoing multiple d&cs have scarring.
I'm going to make an appointment with my FS today. It's going to be difficult not to get angry with her that she didn't talk to me about the risks of complications. And I feel like she is going to brush off my concerns saying I've only tried for 5 months post d&c. I'm 37 so I'm starting to panic that it's never going to happen and that now I am infertile.
Thank you for reading my very long post. Any help/advice/experiences would be helpful.
