6 miscarriages in 5 years....any hope?


I am 37 years old and have had 6 miscarriages in the last 5 years, I do not currently have any children. I have had testing done and have been told that all tests were normal. All miscarriages have been before 10 weeks and all of them except one were after having seen a heartbeat on ultrasound. I'm just looking to see if anyone has been successful after having this many miscarriages or more. I'm just looking for some hope as I'm not getting any younger but don't want to give up on my dreams of a family.

Hi there.  Gosh, I'm so sorry to hear this.  What kinds of tests did you have done?  While one out of every four pregnancies ends in miscarriage, 6 in five years seems to be a lot.  I personally would go to a fertility doctor from this point on.  Not your regular ob/gyn.  They will be more thorough with tests and monitor getting you pregnant.  With your history, you qualify for this specialist to be involved.

I have a sister in law that had 12 miscarriages with one healthy pregnancy.  She has a son.  

Wishing you the best dear.

Look at www.bbc.co.uk , baby born to woman who had 20 miscarriages, there are loads of stories like this. I  also have high natural killer cells and was on steriods and other medication, and now i have a baby girl.

Not sure about this but. I recently had two miscarriage. And of course obsessed about finding things online. I did read that a dr wrote to take low dose aspirin   And take folic acid. But not normal amount. Like about ten of the little pills of folic acid a day.    And. I saw a thing that vitamin c helps progesterone levels. So eat your oranges.   Sure you've tried everything.  But keep trying.  Also. I would have tests.   Sorry for your losses.  I know it's the hardest thing that a lot of people do not understand.

I am so sorry for what you're going through. I can't even begin to understand your heartache. Me and my husband tried having a child for over a year then it finally happened. Then we tried again and I had three miscarriages in a row.  The fourth time I almost lost my son, and I was put on bed rest, because of bleeding. When he finally came out heathy my husband had a visectomy I could not go through another miscarriage again.  6 months after my son was born I was diagnosed with a thyroid disease.  Which I discovered can cause miscarriages.  Which is a shame because we wanted more children and if they checked before we had the visectomy we never would have gotten it. It's just something to consider in case they haven't looked into it. I hope and pray you find the answers your looking for. And again I am so sorry for your pain and loss.
