Just thought I'd update that my hospital doctor has agreed to send my products away for karyotyping. They said they don't normally do it after only 2 mc, but they remembered me from last time & were a little shocked to see me back so soon
Sorry to hear about your losses, that is awful. It sucks they will not test unless you have to go through this again. I would see your GP for a second opinion, surely a blood test is not too much to ask.
I have had 2 losses, one before my son 2.5 yrs ago, and one recently. First was from IVF cycle, 2nd from frozen cycle. Following the latest one, I have had a stack of bloods taken (listed in posts above) and an endometrial biopsy at 21dpo. Still waiting for the results of these, however my doctor also thinks I may have been unlucky. Another doctor described the miscarriage as a 'dodgy embryo' which doesn't give me much hope for the remainder of our frozen cycles.
I am anxious about trying again as well, and will wait to see what the results are of the tests.
Good luck to you, take all the time you need to recover xx
I had a mmc at 10 weeks earlier this year, I was under the care of an OB at that stage, and even though it was my first mc, I had a D&C with testing.
Im not sure if its just because we got it done through the private system, but its definitely possible.
Is it worth pushing for the testing?
Im so sorry so many of us, and you OP, have been through this.
It's ok, I understand now why they only test after 3. It's a numbers game. Unfortunately if they tested everyone after 1 or 2 mcs, then they would capture too many people & the Australian government isn't going to fork out that kind of money sadly.
I'm letting it all go & moving on. DH is keen to give it another red hot go & I'm ovulating again already so we have decided to carry on from where we left off! Here's hoping for third time lucky! But one thing I know as soon as I get a positive hpt this time, I'll be off to my Dr asking for a test of my progesterone levels in case it's low & the reason for my mcs. I asked last pregnancy & she said there was no point so it will be interesting to see what she says next time round!
Looks like I'm having MC#3 this year. heartbroken but relieved that it's happened quickly (I started bleeding today after I was told last week my levels weren't rising quickly enough at 5w5d). I'm 6w4d today but sac was measuring "less than 5 weeks" he said.
Anyway, I'm feeling weird at how relieved I am, like I'm a little bit closer to getting some answers. Thanks for all your replies and I'm going to write down all the things I need to make sure I get tested for.
