Hi


Does anyone know of a m/c specialist in CA. I have a great doc who does specialise but I think now additional opinions might be worthwhile.


thanks

Llama -
((HUGS))) sorry you are going through this again. I don't know of any miscarriage specialist but have you thought about doing PGD or CGH on your embryo's before transfer. I know CGH test like 23 chromosones in the embryo before it is transfered. SIRM does a lot of these and they have a really high success rate for embryos that test normal. I think CCRM also has a high success rate with CGH. A gal on one of my boards had 5 miscarriages then did CGH and is now preggo with Twins. Just thought I would throw the idea out there.

Hi,


I don't have any answers for you, but I wanted to say I'm so sorry that you are going through this again. I remember when you had the first miscarriage last year and I can't believe that you have had to go through two more. It breaks my heart to think of how hard it is sometimes to get that healthy baby and happen ending.


I was thinking that you should post this question on the TTC after m/c board. I've found a lot of support there----they are a lovely group of women---and they may have much more information about recurrent miscarriages. Maybe you've already been there, but it's worth a shot.


Best of luck.

good idea, I was there before but found that many were not IVF related and having issues getting pregnant in the first place was yet another issue!


I've become a greek alphabet tragedy!


Thanks. gl xxxx

Yeah, I have that issue over there too, that so many get pregnant again after a few months----in a way that seems much more fun than a month of Lupron and stims and PIO. But, they know a lot about miscarriages, so I'm hanging out for a while anyway. I really feel that IVFers should be immune to pregnancy loss----it's really unfair to have to deal with BOTH issues---one is plenty.
