First, I'm so sorry for your losses.

Second, I agree with Aimee and Chelle and what you are saying - I would go in ASAP next time you get a BFP and my guess is that the HCG level will be higher - above 5 - and will indicate to your dr. that you are having chemical PGs.

Second, do you know what kind of bloodwork tests he ran? They should be testing your progesterone levels after you ovulate to see if they are high enough during your LP. Second, you should definitely get a panel of b/w for the clotting disorders - one of those could definitely be causing the early losses. If your OB/RE won't test for this stuff, I would move on to someone else for sure.

Kelly, mom to 4 year old Lexi, wife to Rob TTC Number 2 since April 2010, with a loss in June 2010 at 4.5 weeks, and a loss in April 2011 at 8 weeks (possibly ectopic). Saw the RE in May 2011, we were moving forward with testing and an IUI when we

Hi Karri! I was a member of the Conception after Miscarriage (CAM) board YEARS ago (about 10+) when it was just switching from ParentSoup to iVillage and then came here again (to what is now called TTCAM) after my most recent loss last June. This is a great place to be! I'm sorry you have been having Chemicals (even though the doctor doesn't want to call them that). (((HUGS))) Glad you found us, though!

You said that you had the HSG done and other bloodwork. What other bloodwork did you have done? If they did a generic panel like my first OBGYN's out here did, progesterone could be considered "normal" since they give a range, but doesn't indicate that you are in your pre-O or post-O part of your cycle. When I switched to my new OBGYN, he was a bit annoyed that they did all the other testing, but didn't do a proper Progesterone blood test on me. He had me go in at 4dpo, 7dpo, and 11dpo (I was supposed to go in at 3dpo, but that fell on a Sunday and the labs weren't open). Anyway, progesterone numbers are supposed to fall in a pretty "bell curve" and mine started out average, but instead of going up, like they should have, they just went down and down again. He put me on progesterone supplements for a few months in conjunction with Femara. But, he also did tell me that the Femara might help my progesterone numbers to "work properly" too, so I hope that they do the same for you...but I would also request that you get your numbers checked post-O - and not just one blood draw. Some offices will do three consecutive days, other offices will do staggered days like I mentioned. I hope they can figure this all out for you...or you can find a doctor who WILL help you out!
