i am just going to clock up my 3rd loss in 1.5yrs.

#1 natural mc at 5+3

#2 natural mc at 6+3 ( I was on progesterone support but due to slow rising hcg I stopped it at 5+3, there was only a sac and yolk measuring 4-5wks at my scan at 5+6 and then I naturally mc at 6+3)

#3 - due to time running out, I did clomid iui this time to get pregnant and was on metformin, 25mg prednisolone from ovulation which I upped to 40mg on positive pregnancy test and finally clexane/heparin. Despite all this there was no heartbeat at my 6 weeks scan and now I await to miscarry.

I am 36 yrs with a healthy DS from natural pregnancy 6 yrs ago. My partner has been checked for dna frag and there are no issues there. Do you think my issues are immune related or chromosomonal due to my age.

I would now now like to consult and get a treatment plan with you, but I live in London and so not sure if this is logistically possible.

We care for many paitents in the UK , we can do our first consult by SKYPE and I can get all testing that you need sent to us here. No ci dont think this is all chromosomal due to age and very likely some underlying implantation issue most likely immune. Please fill out a consult form on the website and we will schedule a free 10 minute chat to reveiw your case.
