I am 38yrs of age, married & weve been trying for our 1st baby since Nov '06...
since then I have had 6 miscarriages. I assume from this that fertility is not my issue. the brief m/c history is as follows;
1st at 5 wks..-pregnancy happened naturally after 2 mths of trying.
2nd (6mths later) at 7.5wks..( had d&c to remove it) -preg. happened naturally.
3rd (5mths later) at 7.5 wks...it was an ectopic, I was rushed to hospital,
where my right tube had ruptured & had to be removed-preg. happenened naturally
4th (5mths later) at 7wks we saw a heart beat & there was possibly 2 sacs.-
pregnancy happened naturally. I took low dose aspirin to avoid clotting.
5th (7.5mths later) at 5.5wks very small loss. -pregnancy happened with help
from Napro, with meds like pregnyl in jections pre-pregnancy, & low dose
naltrexone for auto immune issues , progesterone support due to low p levels.
I also took cyclogest suppositeries during the preg. Following this I was
diagnosed with under active thyroid, ( which is now under control)
6th (4mths later) at 5.5wks again..the embryo stuck in my left tube, but didnt
grow..-preg happened with help of clomid, & I used cyclogest supposeteries
My question is, if I was a patient of yours, what treatment would you be recommending for me now?
I dont think fertility is the issue. Ive had follicle tracking which confirmed I am ovulating. My husband had sperm analysis done, which showed a low morphology, but we got pregnant the same month as these tests were taken..so my gynae didnt think this was an issue. I need to know why I cant hold onto these preganacies..as I am getting older & I am anxious for a solution..we are currently getting karyotype tests done in a lab in London & awaiting these results, all other common tests have been done with results coming back all fine, with no problems..
I dont know what to say so many losses im sorry, i have a friend like that but she can have boys but not girls she lost 1 girl at 8week then had a boy and that happened 3 time she had the babys she lost tested it they came back girls dont know what the test is called maybe your the same. Hope your get the baby you wish for good luck im thinking of you..
I am so sorry.
My prayers are with you and your husband.
You did not mention this but what is your RH factor if you are positive and baby is negitive your body will kill the baby by making antibodies against the baby this would cause miscarriages. If you know your blood type it will tell you as well what your RH is if O A B AB + youare RH POSITIVE if you are O A B AB - then you are RH NEGITIVE.
may God bless you with a baby soon
taykare, just a quick note:
you are correct in that the RH factor can play a part in miscarriages- however, if the mother is POSITIVE, then there is no chance of miscarriage because of the rh factor.
Rhesus (Rh) factor is a group of proteins that occurs on the surface of some people's red blood cells. If you have Rh factor on your red blood cells, you are referred to as Rh-positive. If you do not have Rh factor, you are Rh-negative. Rh incompatibility is when an Rh-negative mother becomes pregnant with an Rh-positive baby. If the unborn babyÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s Rh-positive red blood cells cross the placenta and reach the mother, her immune system will produce antibodies that will destroy the babyÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s red blood cells. This is the cause of a complication called Rh hemolytic disease in the unborn baby.
Early in pregnancy, blood tests are done to determine the womanÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s blood type and Rh factor. Women who are found to be Rh-negative are given an injection of Rh immunoglobulin, also called Rhogam, during and after pregnancy. This is an antibody that blocks the womanÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s immune system from producing the antibodies that destroy the unborn babyÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s red blood cells. Women who are Rh-negative should be given the injection in all their pregnancies. Rh immunoglobulin is given at 28 weeks of pregnancy, and again within 72 hours of childbirth. The injection is given after an amniocentesis, after any episodes of vaginal bleeding, and at any time where the placenta could be disturbed, such as after a blow to the stomach. Rh immunoglobulin is also given to Rh-negative women after any miscarriage.
Since you have already gone through many miscarriages, I don't believe this is the reason for your miscarriages. I was just clearing things up a little so that other readers might get more accurate info.
god bless, and good luck!
