i'm 29 year old. i have a problem to which if u have a solution i would like to visit ur hospital.i have a son who is about 9 years old and he is from my first husband. and i have a daughter who is 4 year old both my pregnancies ended up in cesarian. when my daughter was 15 months i concieved again that pregnency lasted for 18 weeks and when i wnt for a regular monthly checkup i found out that th baby's hear beat was absent i was also feeling movements but in the 17th and 18th week i got a bit busy and didn't notice and may b in that time i lost my baby.
then i again concieved after 3 months and that pregnency went perfectly well till 26 weeks. one day i did not feel movements i rushed to the doc but the baby again did not had his heart beat.......i was devastated that i had no complications no pains no bleeding no nothing and what's taking my babys' heartbeat away? i went through several tests which were

* glycosylated haemaoglobin 5%
* toxoplasma antibodies less than 0.5
* prolactin 519
* lupus anticoagulant no lupus anticoagulant activity detected
* thermobophilia screening

* nomalise ratio 0.88

1. PCAT 70.6
2. PCAT/O 50.4 protein C&S deficiency not detected

* thyroid profile

1. serum total T1 1.82
2. serum free T4 12.7
3. serum TSH 1.38

* antithormobin 104.9%
* cardiolipin antibodies Ig G less than 5

* normal female and male karytyoe
* further the HB and sugar levels were normal hep b and C were also negative.

this is what i went through after the second miscarriage and after almost 2 years i conceived againbut again i lost the baby at 14 weeks the doc was treating me with folic acid 5mg daily, loprin 75 mg daily, and duphaston 2 tabs daily, and an injection named choriomon once a week.
now i don't know what to do and what to look for. the fetus has been sent for testing and i'm awaiting the results. i desperately want one baby because i don't feel complete and that is effecting my family life. my husband had low sperm count which was treated. now what do u feel can be the reason of these recurrent miscarriages my doc said science has no answer for me...... which disappointed me to death.....now what do u say.......
looking forward for ur reply.

Hi Nadra, this is a complicated case as you have stated and it would be hard to give you a full evaluation that you so need with the results you have posted, however I did not see anything in those results that suggest the problem. There is still quite a bit more that you need to do. Please call my office and schedule a consultation with me and I can arrange for the rest of the testing once we go over your full history. HLA matching is one of the items that needs to be looked at as well as a full activated immune panel.
I hope I can be of service to you.
