I tried to post this the other day and think maybe it got lost so forgive me if this is a double post. I have had four early losses. One pregnancy was unplanned in my teens and the other three since 2009. This latest was my first IVF cycle. I have tested positive for APA and they had me on baby aspirin with heparin to start if positive beta. Unfortunately I never got to start the heparin as my beta fell quickly. I have endo which was diagnosed at 20 and most recently removed in 2008. During this same surgery I had a myomectomy and will need a csection if I ever get that far. My clinic does not support immune treatment with prednisone or any other meds. I feel pretty hopeless. We have conceived naturally twice. My clinic mentioned egg quality as we had 15 mature and only 7 fertilize. 8 were ICSI and only 3 of that group fertilized. We had two blasts transferred but none made it to freeze. Am I mistaken in thinking this isn't necessarily egg quality or bad luck. It's so hard to hear that there's nothing more I can do. Thanks for any suggestion.

you most likley have an immune related issue causing your losses, and the endometriosis can contribute to both egg quality and immune related pregnancy loss. (Read our last blog on this.) If you live out of state , you should call and schedule a free 10 miinute consult and we can discuss this as well as the need for our services.

Are you able to treat out of state? In your opinion would it be beneficial to do another laparoscopy to remove the endo prior to a second IVF round? Thanks so much for your response. It's very comforting to know that there are other options to consider.

in certain circumstances we are able to work with a local OB/GYN, best would be to call for a 10 min free consult and we can reveiw this with you.
