hi, i concieved my 1st baby on 1st round of clomid but had a stillborn at 33 weeks (20th january 2010).... All results they carried out came to be normal including the placenta examination so it means that cant find the reason of him being stillborn. Now i wanna try again but i had my rubella vaccination a month ago because i had low immunity. Now i wanna ask that i have read on web that i can start trying a month after rubella vaccination is this true?? Any risk involved?? Secondly do i need clommid again?? Is it possible to have anovalutary cycle right after a childbirth. And third and last question is wht are the chances of recurrance of stillbirth? Anything i can do to prevent it happening again?? Thanks
Welcome to ehealthforum.
The chances of having stillborn child cannot be predicted. If the cycles are still anovulatory, then you will require help of ovulation inducing drugs like Clomid to help you getting pregnant. You can start with trying for pregnancy after 1-2 months of taking Rubella vaccination, it usually does not lead to any complications. You can consider having a karyotyping test done to rule out any chances of chromosomal anomalies that could have resulted in stillbirth. It will also help you to know if any further risks are present with future pregnancies.
Discuss your pregnancy plans with your gynecologist and go ahead with the tests suggested before you go ahead with pregnancy to see if any underlying risk is involved.
