    Default Recurrent chemical pregnancies

    Just had my third chemical pregnancy in as many months. I’m not sad this time as I was expecting it and have formed a hard heart.

    Any peeps out there gone through something similar? Any tips on getting that bfp to stick?

    Good luck all!

    Big hug to you!

    Have you had progesterone levels checked? Progesterone is vital in first trimester in providing nutrients to bub and making sure uterine wall is in optimum condition for ideal implantation.

    Some doctors may prescribe progesterone supplement after multiple unexplained miscarriages where Mum has makes insufficient progesterone.

    Thanks so much for your response. I’ve decided to switch doctors and will make sure I get to the GP the instant I get a faint line. Then they can test hcg and progesterone early to see what’s happening

    I believe you did right having switched docs. It's so important to trust the doc and value his recommendations. If you hesitate - that won't do, so getting the 2nd opinion must help. I also support the above poster as for the progesterone shots possible. I'm sorry for your chemical pregnancies, but you're on the right way surely.. investiagting more. I'm wishing you the best of luck. Stay well.

    Also make sure to get your bloods checked. I found out just recently that i have a blood clotting disorter which is notorious for causing mc and could be the reason i mc twice and had pre eclampsia with my first 2 babies. Only took 5 pregnancies to finally be tested

    Sorry, chemicals are not fun. Hang in there xx

    It could be well worth getting immune and implantation testing (it’s just blood tests). I would suggest getting a referral to a fertility specialist or reproductive immunologist who can arrange the testing for you and then based on results advise on medications you could take to help the next one stick 🤞

    Not all specialists do this testing so before you get the referral ask if they run a full immune and implantation screening panel and if they treat Natural Killer Cells (one of the the more commonly found problems).

    In the meantime ask your GP about taking extra progesterone pessaries. Often you start these from 1-2 days after ovulation. Starting once you see the faint lines might be too late. They are messy but well worth it!

    Best of luck!
