Psoriatic Arthritis and Donor Eggs

In 2007 at age 27, I was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis.
In 2012 at age 32, I gave birth to a healthy boy, naturally conceived.
In June 2014, current age 34, I miscarried (natural conception).
In July 2014, it was discovered I have an extremely rare genetic disorder. Genetic Counselors say I have a one in two chance of passing it on, and although it doesn't present in me, it could present in a child.
In Aug 2014, we opted to hire an egg donor instead of moving forward with IVF-PGD. We did this simply to increase chances of having another healthy baby as quickly as possible.
On Nov 24, my RE concluded I was having a chemical pregnancy despite having used donor eggs. I'd been taking PIO injections and estradiol tablets, no prednisone.
Could my arthritis have caused this loss?
Should I be on additional medications?
I only have four remaining frozen embryos.

PSa is a very common immune disorder that is related to failed embryo implantation. This will be an issue of course even with donor eggs. You need our complete immune evaluation and then we can recommmend treatment for you. Please fill our a consult form on our website and we will schedule a free 10 minute consultation for you.
