Another Chemical Pregnancy 😢

Even though I was feeling anxious I somehow felt more positive that this would work out for us this time. Unfortunately I was wrong. I woke up at 2am bleeding and took another test to confirm ‘not pregnant’. We are just devastated to be going through this again. It’s just not fair! I wonder if I need more hormone support? I wonder if there is something wrong with the embryos?! This unknown is killing me!!

Im so sorry! Its so cruel to have this happen to you again. What progesterone support were you getting? I do think its worth mentioning to the clinic. Massive hugs, its really not fair!xx

I know it’s just awful. I was on cyclogest (progesterone) 400mg twice a day. Do you reckon that’s enough?! Who knows! I would take 100 a day if it meant I could keep my pregnancies xxx

I would say thats a fair amount. This is what I get in my private clinic, much more than the NHS. Due to previous bleeding my clinic did say that I could add another one in if I started bleeding but it didnt help me when I miscarried. I think if its not going to stick then there isnt much we can do unfortunately!! Its so crap, I know what you mean, I feel the same....would do anything!xxx

Yep, I know that feeling also! I see that you still have a lovely embryo on ice so I do hope that in time you will feel ready to try again! Thank you, Im doing ok. I still have my sad moments but I feel ready to get on and try again....time does heal. Do whatever you need to do to grieve and hold onto each other tight!xx

Yeah but right now I don’t even feel hopeful with that embryo unfortunately. Sad to think like that. Just gotta go with the flow for now I suppose.

I’m glad you are doing ok, it’s tough it really is xx

So sorry to hear your going through this again. I hope the clinic are able to come up with some helpful suggestions for you. Sometimes with repeat chemicals they do make changes (my friend had recurrent chemicals naturally and was given anticoagulants for e.g.) xxx

So sorry that you had to go through this again.

Regardless of the age of the woman, a certain percentage of the embryos will be aneuploid and have the wrong number of chromosomes. This means that the embryo cannot progress even if it implants.

This is the most common cause of CP and miscarriage. It does not mean that it will happen again. This is why most clinics recommend three attempts before changing anything.

Stay brave. Sending you best wishes. X

I can’t believe this is happening again to you too cruel for words.

My fertility doctor said if I was to experience another loss ( I had one in 2017) he would refer us to a miscarriage clinic for further investigations, such as thyroid antibodies etc. I know some will insist on 3 losses but worth asking. Our fertility doctor thought it would cruel to make us suffer 3 losses.. 😢

I took prednisone from a positive test, in between ovulation & period due date I took low dose aspirin to safeguard anything that might have occurred ( natural pregnancy impossible to know)

I have slightly raised nk cells & fertility doctor agreed I could take them after a positive test. The first time it took a while to get the drs to prescribe them & I had to fight hard to get progesterone pessaries. But the second pregnancy it was all put place by my fertility doctor. I swear taking both prednisone & progesterone pessaries 2x 400mg daily straightaway as well as having all my endometriosis removed properly by an endometriosis specialist made a huge difference & kept my baby safe. I took both these until I was 12 weeks.

Maybe you could ask about taking prednisone, low dose aspirin next time, is the only suggestion I have.

Some ladies will have a hysteroscopy to have a closer look inside the uterus. Perhaps it would be a good idea to have a laparoscopy & hysteroscopy together to have a more detailed look inside & outside your uterus to see if there are any abnormalities that can be fixed?

My endometriosis grew pouch of Douglas & uteroscaral ligaments affecting my uterus lining & making implantation impossible without being removed via laparoscopy.

I think press for further investigations.

Again I am ever so sorry you are going through this again 😢 I hope you have lots of support around you ❤️xoxo

Thank you for your message and advice! I honestly can’t believe it’s happened again!! I am definitely going to press for more answers and investigations now I can’t keep going through this! IVF is hard enough and then to lose the pregnancy over and over again is just cruel!

I already take the progesterone 400mg twice a day. Perhaps it’s not enough? But like you say maybe I need something else too. I am going to suggest getting embryos biopsied to see if any chromosome issues.xx

Hi, I am very sorry to hear that! I have already had a miscarriage and know how you feel now. I am a newbie here and do not know everything but as far as I understood you have already had several IVF attempts and they failed or ended with miscarriages. How many attempts are you ready to do to achieve the pregnancy? Are these procedures covered by NHS or self-paid?

I am asking because I am on my 2nd IVF attempt with DE and do not quite now what to do next.. What if I get bfn again..

So sorry to hear of your miscarriage. It’s such an awful thing to go through! I’ve had two attempts of IVF and both I got pregnant but lost both at 4-5 weeks. I will literally keep going and going!! First round was NHS but second self funded xx

What about the clinic where you are undergoing treatment? Is it good? What chances do your doctors give?

Yeah it is a good clinic and high success results. But we will be exploring other options too.

What kind of options do you consider? Are you talking about some other procedures or doctors/clinics?
