My boyfriend and I have been trying to have a baby for about a year, One day in November we found out that we were going to be parents the next day we lost our baby. Is this normal? Should I give up all hope?
No, it is not normal to lose a baby during a miscarriage. You might be experiencing either sterility (you canât conceive), infertility (you canât keep the pregnancy), or both. You can ask for medical attention from a gynecologist for diagnostic examinations and procedures to investigate the cause of the miscarriage. Your partner should be also examined via spermogram and functional tests. You canât give up hope until you have undergone all diagnostic procedures, establish a correct diagnosis (ultrasound, hormonal analyses, HSG, laparoscopy), and complete therapy or treatment...so there is much hope left!
