    Default Another loss...2nd chemical pregnancy.

    I suspect I've just had my second chemical pregnancy in what will be a three month timespan

    Prior to this I had an early miscarriage late last year.

    I can't believe this is happening yet again and it's devastating.

    I've got no support around me either. My partner is skeptical that I was pregnant this time around and my family and friends have acted similar with the first chemical pregnancy so I'm reluctant to confide in them about this one.

    I don't know what to do or where to turn. I feel as if I've just been slapped in the face, once again. Why does this KEEP happening to me?! It's like my worst nightmare is just being replayed over and over again!

    I'm sorry to hear Butterfly Miracles I don't know much about chemical pregnancies, do you know if you might have a short luteal phase? That's all I can think of but I'm sure some other ladies will have more ideas

    I'm so sorry A loss is a loss and feels terrible, I know. If it's any consolation, I was there not so long ago and now 5 months into a healthy pregnancy. I think that vitex and a really good multivitamin have made all the difference to me.

    Hey, thanks for your replies

    Tabledancer: I don't know about my luteal phase to be honest. That's after you ovulate right? Sorry I'm not good with the terminologies.

    BornToBe: Thanks. A loss is a loss but it is actually some consolation to hear that things are working out for you now. Maybe there's still hope for me. What is vitex, may I ask?

    So sorry to hear of your losses it is so difficult to see that positive test and have it taken away from you.

    I had about 7-8 chem pregnancies which turned out to be for immune reasons. I ended up taking clexane, asprin and having intralipids alongside hormonal drugs. The result is a 3 week old DD

    However, my case was quite complicated and there were other reasons for my infertility. Chems can often be the result of a short luteal phase (so less than 10 days from ovulation to your period), so a fertilised egg does not get a chance to implant properly before your uterine lining sheds. You can check how long your luteal phase is by charting your temperature.

    A short luteal phase can be lengthened by regulating the hormones. A first port of call, as born to be mentioned is vitex ( sometimes called chaste tree) which is a herbal supplement that can regulate your hormones. I got some from a naturopath, but I believe you can get it in chemists. Since your luteal phase is progesterone driven You can also get progesterone pessaries from a doctor/fertility specialist.

    Best of luck with ttc...I hope you get your sticky Bub soon!!

    Thanks a lot Patience86 Your story also gives me some faith that things will work out.

    Also thanks for explaining the luteal phase. I don't believe it is short though. I think I know when I ovulated but then again that was only going off cervical mucus but if I were correct, then I actually ovulated early.
