I'm a former member of this board (moved to a m/c board after my 4th m/c) who recently quit ttc after 6th m/c. I know that chances are there is nothing new that someone on this board has not been through, so I'm hoping someone here has an answer.

Last month I was on clomid and progesterone. I'd taken it the previous two months with no problem, but this time, the effects are lingering. I'm approaching mid-cycle on the next cycle (no meds this time at all) and I've still got sore breasts just like pms and my temps have never dropped to pre-o levels. I have no pg symptoms and though I had O spottin, I had negative tests at 10, 12, 14 and 16 dpo. It's like my progesterone level never dropped at the end of my last cycle.

Any thoughts?

Hi Cat,

I wanted to welcome you back to the board & also say how sorry I am that you have suffered all of those M/C's. I too am a recurrent M/Cer. I have talked to many Drs & many women about this in the last few months & have found that my M/C's are immunology related. One of the problems is a blood clotting issue. The blood & oxygen get cut off from the baby & I M/C. There is treatment for these types of problems & the success rates for healthy deliveries are very high. You should definitely contact Dr. Beer. He is the best in this field. His web site is repro-med.net & his phone # is 408-356-9500. If you are not in Cailfornia he can work with you long distance in congunction with your RE or OB/GYN. You can have blood drawn locally. Some of it can be tested by your local lab. Some of it involves specialized testing. He works with the University of Chcago Medical School. You can ship blood there. He will look over the results & give you a diagnosis & a treatment plan, which you can implement locally with the help of your Dr. if you need any more info just give me a post.

+++++++++++Prayers & +++++vibes coming to you!!!++++++++++++
