My wife had two icsi that ended up with abortion, but there are more than one common issue that happed during both trials
1- She always suffer from urine infection after egg retrieval where the pus cells can reach a level of 40 and during this time her body temp is always between 37 and 40 Celsius
2- The hcg hormone level always starts low, during the first trial it was 38 then after 48 hours, on the second trial it started at level 32 then 61 then 140
3- Abortion always happens the week before the heartbeat, things go very good in sonar scans till this time and then suddenly abortion happens
Now I am not sure what to do, we had each trial in two different centres to insure that things has no relation to the centre, but our fertility doctor always keep saying that these signs are normal and we should go on trying and trying, and I keep hearing strange numbers when it comes to trial times, some doctors says 22 trials and other say 11 and 15, come on people we are human beings a

Welcome to ehealthforum.
To keep trying is to keep being hopeful for a good outcome. If the ICSI has failed two times, see if the supplementation of the progesterone hormone will help or not from the time right after the ICSI is done. Another thing that can be done is to keep her on ‘cold’ foods or lots of fruits (except papaya, sapota, pomegranate and bananas). She can take lots of green leafy vegetables and citrus fruits. Avoid non-veg completely.
Get the urine infection completely under control before she tries for the next ICSI.
Discuss these with your gynecologist/infertility specialist before going ahead with the next one. Trying upto 5 times is practiced in most of the institutions.
Take care.
