I am sorta in the "pregnancy after loss" category. I am only 4 weeks pregnant and fear another chemical is in my future (tests are lightening, after darker ones). I have had two chemicals back-to-back before this one, so my doc is starting to look into what might be going on. I asked him about progesterone therapy today (pill form) and he was willing to try it (even though it might not help/be too late/not even be the issue). I was just wondering if anyone else had this experience and might shed some light onto what is going on.
For background, I have one healthy son who was concieved and carried with absolutely no issues. This all started after a horrible miscarriage and D & C experience in July (I was 9 weeks when we lost him/her, 12 when the D & C was done, so that is not one of the chemicals I am talking about).
I hope it's a sticky baby for you! I haven't personally experienced chemicals, but i do know a few women from PAL & from my PR who were on progesterone after numerous losses, and now have healthy babies so hopefully it will do the trick for you
Well I have had a Missed miscarriage (baby died at 6 weeks, had a D&C at 10 weeks) and 9 Chemicals.... My DH has a balanced translocation between chromosomes 1 and 20 (info if wanted) But that only gives us a 31% chance of miscarriage (not much higher than the average couples 25%...) After all these losses I BEGGED to be put on progesterone and finally was. I am now 17 weeks pregnant with a healthy baby boy! I REALLY think it's the progesterone that did the trick for me.... My progesterone was never checked and the drs insisted that it wouldn't help. But here is the kicker, IT DOESN'T HURT TO TRY!!! So I say, give it a go! It may or may not work, but why not try?
