2 days I go posted on here about getting pregnant on our first IVF attempt. Well it looks like I lost it this morning.
I started cramping a lot last night. Have Endometriosis everywhere and the pain was the same. Then started spotting fresh blood and this morning got a heavy bleed and it looks like everything came out with it. We are devastated as we believe that I had a miscarriage before last year in May where I had no period for 2 months, only had spotting and then had a heavy bleed where I passed something that looked like a foetus!
I went to the GP about it back then which also believed that I miscarried.
I have blocked tubes (partly blocked) and it looks like that I can conceive but to miscarry just days later is awful.
The other thing is that I also have Asthma and I know from some research that Asthma & Endo are auto immune diseases. So we are looking into getting tests done to see if my body attacks the growing embryos. We had 2 embryos transferred and where so hopeful that they would stick.
Feeling awful just now and hope there is something we can do to increase our chances for our last IVF attempt.
I did get both my tubes checked and the Drs said that I do not have a hydro and that my tubes are simply blocked due to the Endometriosis that has grown around them.
They did say that if we open them that there is an increased risk of an ectopic pregnancy.
I am not keen on any more surgery unless I really have too as last time I was in surgery for 3 hrs and took weeks to recover.
The Drs said they don't see a point in removing my tubes and my partner is also against it as he thinks we might have a chance of still conceiving naturally even if the next IVF fails as well. I also know other ladies that conceived naturally with partly blocked tubes. So decided to keep them.
If anyone has any experience with this and knows what tests we could get done to see why I miscarry - that would be fantastic.
Thank you & I wish everyone on here lots of good luck on this tough journey xx
