    Default 13 week termination due to Trisomy 13

    Hi All,

    I think I am here looking for some positive stories.
    I am 41 and my hubby is 25. I already have a 10year old child and ttc with my new hubby who has low sperm count.

    We have been trying icsi for the last 14 months. Did it 4 times, 1st time no luck, 2nd time no luck, 3rd time I miscarried at 6 weeks and 4th time we found out at 13 weeks that baby has trisomy 13.

    I just had medical termination and I am wondering what the chances are of having another trisomy baby. Also do you think I should be now asking my fertility Dr to be putting in two embryos at once as I am getting on and time is passing.

    Just looking for some positive feedback and your opinion on trying to transfer more than 1 embryo at a time.
    Thanks

    Im very sorry this has happened to you, what i can suggest is PGD testing, its were they test the embryo for abnormalities, As you age could be playing a factor in embryo quality.

    I am so sorry to hear you had to terminate your pregnancy. I had to terminate mine due to trisomy 16, which is supposedly common.

    From the literature, trisomy 13 occurs in about 1 out of every 10,000 newborns and most cases are not inherited. So apparently the chances of a couple having another trisomy 13 affected child is less than 1%, but it's probably best to talk to your FS about your concerns and what transferring 2 embies might mean for you.
