    Default Multiple chemical pregnancies

    Hi ladies

    Im just after some advice.

    I have now had 2 consecutive chemical pregnancies. I know how common these can be unfortunately, but im just wondering if there is anything i can get checked or if anyone has any advice?

    I have regular cycles that around normally around 30 days. I ovulate on day 18/19 (confirmed using OPK’s) so my luteal phase is around 11 days long.

    Because i can never help myself, i always test before AF is due and have gotten very very faint but positive tests at 10dpo.

    I guess what im wondering is, do you think my luteal phase is long enough to sustain a pregnancy?

    I am also taking vitex, not sure if this is causing the chemicals so i have decided to stop it now that AF has arrived.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks so much ladies

    definitely could be related to luteal phase; honestly I'd see a specialist for help. you may not need full ivf maybe just cycle tracking and some extra hormonal support to support amd sustain a pregnancy.
    hope that helps xx

    Vitex is great, how long have you been on it for? it will generally help with your cycles rather than hinder them, but can take a will to sort them out, usually around 6 mths, vit b6 is good for luteal phase defects also.

    No advice but I'm so sorry to hear this hun. I hope your next pregnancy brings you another take home baby. I'm taking Vitex as well and haven't heard of any links to chemical pregnancy, may be worth discussing with your GP.

    @PinkPopsicle thank you for your advice, do you think its too soon to see a specialist? Are the tests something a normal GP can do?

    @Tainted thanks lovely lady. Im thinking now to stay on the vitex. And its probably not a good idea to be testing until my period is late anyway i guess? How are you going with TTC again? Hope you and your beautiful babies are all well x

    I have also heard that FRER are so sensitive now as well, which cant be a good thing with chemical pregnancies?

    @MrsMummaButterfly definitely give the vitex a few more months to start to work and add in b6 daily as well. You could get your go to test your for the mthfr gene mutation, it’s quite common and can cause miscarriages. I think having the frer so sensitive is a good idea and so is testing before your period is due, you are picking up chemicals which imo is a good thing, as you know your embryos are implanting, but something is happening to them once they have implanted for one reason or another.

    Thanks so much @stacey10 thats a huge help. Will stay on vitex and have a look at vit b6 - how many mg of that do i need? Will then look at seeing GP.
