Hello please can anyone help . I have had 10 miscarriages and going through another one and have had 1 still birth . All my bloods and tests come back normal but I always seem to lose the baby at 5 week plus always saying baby stopped growing and no heartbeat. Why is this happening I dont know . I am 40 years old and hubby 42 . I am losing hope now . This pregnancy was ivf first cycle and the worst ever miscarriage I'm going through . Please can someone help . I do not have time on my side .

Bless you so sorry for all you have been though, I expect you have been tested for antiphospholipid syndrome (sticky blood) but if not you definitely need to be. I can’t think of anything else except to say wishing you luck

Hello daisy

Yes I have been tested for that and came back negative but I was put on aspirin and tinzaparin injections. Luck is definitely what I need . Thank you

I'm so sorry to hear this. Being quite ripe age both we gave a try icsi shot. Though were told beforehand own eggs were not going to work out. They were of extremelly poor quality & count. But we did hope we'd catch that veryone, but failed. Actually not failed to conceive but to keep the pregnancy. I miscarried early. Dr told us it was due to my egg quality and that we could have avoided it if went donor egg route. Dh thought it would be nice to have some break to heal physically and emotionally. And to think what were the next steps going to be. Honestly, it took quite long to accept we'll need donor eggs..

Our stories differ. Still I cannot imagine the pain you feel having faced 10 mc in a row..Poor thing, I'm sorry..Have you ever considered using donor's mitochondria?

Hello Karinyaa thank you for your post. I am waiting on results to see if it's my eggs or my body . I think I might have a blood issue as I have hypertension which is treated with medication . I really dont know right now what route to take . My ivf cycle reached day 5 blastocyst. But keep miscarrying on week 5 where embryo stops growing .

Thinking If I do ivf with psg test next before considering surrogacy.

Great to hear you mentioning mitochondria donation. The option is becoming more and more popular among the IP who don't want to go down donor egg path. I've read a lot about the method. I know some clinics include MD shots into their IVF packages. - Quite a good plan to try out, isn't it? There are some great videos on the point, this one explains the procedure well~~https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3bEPHQEtvo&list=PL4Q8twX_alivtFC53bQ8Lh35Zzn-nFprx&index=6&t=0s. It's said one can use MD as long as her own eggs aren't damaged genetically.

Oh my, I'm so sorry to hear this! 10 miscarriages in a row is a huge dreadful amount..As far as I've understood you've been ttc before naturally, right? And then turned to ivf?but the same result..I'm sorry if I mistook..Anyway, I cannot imagine the pain you're going through as I was born without womb. So I've never experienced pregnancy myself. We went down surrogacy route to get our DD into the family. I'll be praying for you and may your dr invent some really awesome treatment plan for you which will finally bring you your little bundle of joy. Sending you my warm supportive hugs xx

So sorry dear! 10? What did your OB say? You're incredible strong. I hope you find a very good IVF specialist who can explain your situation really well. I'm sure your case is much more complicated than mine, but my IVF doc was very detailed and patient whenever I had any questions. I was happy he was my doc, considering we were in Cyprus of all places. I never expected it, but felt really lucky I did.
