Recent Miscarriage questions

Ok. I have a concern on why I am not getting pregnant. I

Ok. I have a concern on why I am not getting pregnant. I know I can get pregnant, but I have had a miscarriage. I am healthy, My husband is healthy. We have been to a fertility specialist who claims we are both healthy, blood work came back fine. I get my periods every 27-28 days, ovulate normally. I can nearly pin point my ovulation with my cervical mucus. But -- I am wondering if I need an RH shot. I have o- Blood, and after my last miscarriage I do not remember getting any type of shot. Could it be that my body is possibly fighting offi the sperm ? Is that possible ? Or is it possible that even though I am showing signs of ovulation, I'm not ovulating. How can I boost ovulation if you think that this is the case ? I have many questions wrapped into one issue. Please help.

I miscarried and had a D&C 6 weeks ago. The doctor

Hi! I miscarried and had a D&C 6 weeks ago. The doctor perforated my soft/spongy uterus. I had a bit of internal bleeding (anemia too) and almost had to have a hysterectomy. Would you say that having pain 6 weeks later is to be expected? I assume so between the injury and the fact that I probably still have some blood that hasn't been absorbed yet. Also, even though everything looked good on my last physical exam 10 days ago, is there still a chance I could need a hysterectomy?JA: In general, how has your health been lately?Customer: Good! Just a bit of pain still. Enough to take a half Percocet a few times a day. But good.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: I did have a baby 18 months ago...

As a brief background:, 36 years of age. One of husband's

Hi,As a brief background:I am South Asian, 36 years of age. One of husband's first cousins is autistic and one of my first cousins has developmental problems.I had couple of miscarriages in Jun 2014 and Nov 2014 respectively. Both of them terminated at 8 weeks. For the second miscarriage, testing was done on the fetus which revealed an aneuploidy.After these miscarriages, I took IVF treatment. For the three embryos that we had, Natera PGS testing was done in May 2015. After delays due to insufficient uterine lining, a 5 day blastocyst was transferred (FET) on April 1st 2016. This resulted in successful pregnancy.I am currently 21 weeks pregnant.As part of pregnancy, I had a Harmony pre-natal blood test done at 10 weeks 2 days. Additionally, I had a full anatomy scan done at 20 weeks 2 days.I am attaching here three pdf files related to these tests that were mentioned above and their results:1. Natera PGS testing on embryos2. Harmony pre-natal blood test done at 10 weeks 2 days3. Results of anatomy scan done at 20 weeks 2 days******My questions are:A. I haven't done any CVS / Amniocentesis? Based on the test results that are attached, would you recommend further genetic counseling / undergoing Amniocentesis? (I can only do Amino now and as I understand it has a risk of 1 in 200 for miscarriage)B. As I understand, these tests (harmony, anatomy scan) scan only for Trisomy 21, 18 and 13. Is there any statistically significant risk of other disorders which may be revealed by Amniocentesis?C. Do the results of anatomy scan look ok? What do the measurements for HC, BPD, AC, FL, etc., indicate? Based on the Hadlock tables, the measurements for these parameters are significantly smaller than the mean values – in the 10th percentile range. What does that indicate? Do I need to follow-up further? Does the fact that I did IVF / FET have any bearing towards these smaller sizes / measurements?D. Is there any way that I can try to improve the quality of these fetal attributes (HC, BPD, AC) going forward? Say by nutrition, exercise etc.I am mostly concerned about any genetic disorders / developmental issues with the baby.I really appreciate your help and guidance.Thanks.

I was told last week that I was about 4 weeks pregnant,

I was told last week that I was about 4 weeks pregnant, everything was fine. On the 26th of July I started bleeding no pain, then tense cramps. On the 27th I was feeling better but at night got the extreme cramps again and heavy bleeding with large clots, but after an hour or so started feeling better. Today (the 28th) my day was perfectly fine, I was bleeding lightly but nothing too crazy but about two hours ago I was feeling very bad. Very very intense cramping and a lot of bleeding again. I have to mention that I did nothing strenuous was in bed most of the day, and out of nowhere did the very bad cramps start. Should I be worried ? I know I'm miscarrying but is this normal? I wasn't soaking my pads but within this hour the bleeding has been very heavy.

Ok, this is kinda an embarrassing question to ask. I think I started my period around the 12 of this month and I thought it quite on the 17 because I stopped heavy flow and started just spotting. Well it started like a normal period and it hasn't stopped since. I recently went to see my physician about possible bv, because I took a test saying my acidity was off. I thought this could of been caused by douching. I didn't think the spotting at the time was a big deal. I'm starting to feel weak and I'm not sure what to do. I don't want to go to an emergency room, because i'm not under insurance and it would be too costly.

In May i had a miscarriage, me and my partner want to get

Hi, in May i had a miscarriage, me and my partner want to get pregnant again, my period came towards the end of june, i bought a clear blue ovulation kit to test when my surge is high to conceive. I had to readings, one on july 11, and then it dropped low again but on the 16th i had another peak, both of these times me and my partner had sex at least a day or two before the readings. Im not having pregnancy symptoms, and my period is around the corner oth july 28th. Pregnancy test came out negative 6 days before period. Is it possible that it's still too early for me to test, or should i just assume i didnt conceive? And why did i get two readings? Thank you
