My journey to parenthood has not been easy. My husband and I started trying for a family in August 2008. I knew it could take a while to convince, so I was paitent. We became pregnant in April 2009. Unfortunately it was only I few days after the great news did I find out I jad a miscarriage. In October 2009, we became pregnant again. My hcg was 4000. My nimbers looked great. 15 days later my hcg dropped to 300. I had to have a DNC. My ob put me on a diet of high lean protein and leafy greens. In April 2010, we became pregnant again. My ob put me on a high dose of prometrium. On May 11, 2010 we had our first ultrasound. Things looked great! 13 days later there was no longer a heartbeat. Now my second DNC...My ob said mu progesterone was really low. On cd 21 it was 6.7. He decided I needed to be put on clomid. November 11, 2010 I jhd a positive home test. November 15 hcg 39. November 17, 2010 hcg 9. Miscarriage number 4...I was tired. Tired of losing all these babies that I loved so much. I decided it was time for a new dr. I found a reproductive endo. In March 2011, I was diagnosed with APS. Started low dose aspirin, heparin, prometrium, femara, and trigger shot. Nothing happened.....February 2012, added follistim to the mix. Still nothing. Tested for pre menopause, mybresults were in the normal range. February 2013, HSG, clear tubes, but small uterus and very high cervix. Wanted to do a laparoscopy. The day I had my labs for the procedure I found out I was expecting (march 17, 2013). Progesterone normal. Hcg rising. April 17, hcg dropped. Miscarriage numner 5. June 2013 I had the lap and hyst. Found I had a very mild case of endo which was removed. He alsp discovered I had a uterine septum, which he removed. Nov 7, 2013, pregnant again. Hcg rising, progesterone low. Nov 20, intralipid infusion. Ultrasound two days later revealed nothing. Hcg still rising. November 26, ultrasound nothing. Looks to be a tubal. Given methotrexate. Hcg dropping. Had one small rise, but then dropped. I had labs done 2 days ago and my hcg has yet to go below 5 and ibe had what seemed to be my period.
All but one of my pregnancies were conceived naturaly. During the dnc's no chromosomal defects were found. My re said that mybhusband and I dnt have any chromosomal issues together since one ofnthose pregnancies was with a boy.
I am just looking for other ideas. Somethhingnelse we could do. Insurance paus nothing amd we've spent all of our savings on unsuccessful pregnancies. I just want th family that I've been trying for for 6 years...

There are certainly other approaches you can take and you may need IVIG for this. I would need to do our full immune panel to accurately determine your best treatment. Best would be to fill out a consult form on our website and we will be in touch with you .
