Ive just stumbled on this board and so glad i did, i would love to join you all,
My names Bex im 31 years old my OH is 30, we have been ttc for 4 years now, with 3 chemical pregnancies, 1 misscarrige at 5 weeks and an ectopic pregnancy which i lost my right tube through
9 months ago (and not even a hint of a pregnancy since) My DR cannot see nothing wrong, so wont do tests, my remaining left tube is lassarated but he said thats not the cause of my misscarriges so we just keep trying, every month is getting harder and harder
*hugs* I'm so sorry for your losses. I'd be looking for another OB. There are OB's out there that will do testing with your history.
I'm Augie, cohost of this board. I've been pregnant 5 times. The first was a chemical. The second ended at 11w. That was followed by two more chemicals. After my fourth loss we struggled with infertility and took two years to conceive. Our fifth pregnancy ended on New Years Eve with emergency surgery. We'd been pregnant with heterotopic twins and my left tube had ruptured. I lost my babies, my tube, and a small portion of my uterus.
After my third loss, my doctor did testing. Unfortunately, testing didn't give us any real answers.
Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my siggy!

I'm Ashley, I'm 28 and have had 8 miscarriages resulting in the loss of 10 babies. 5 of them have been chemicals, two sets of twins and a single loss. The reasons behind mine have been from brith control use, a choromosomal issue and a fall.
I'm sorry your doctor wont look into testing. Have you thought about trying to find another one who will look into the matter more. If the's been any damage to the remaining tube it could be scarred off, meaning the egg can't reach the sperm.

A sad but warm welcome to the board. I am sorry that your doctor isn't doing testing. In my opinion, I would start shopping around for a different doctor that is willing to do testing. I pray you will soon have your rainbow baby.
Thank you all for your kind words, i send you all big hugs, and im sorry for all your losses, its great to finally feel like there are women out there who understand, as my friends (Who as great as they are), have limited knowledge of how it feels to loose lots of babies
As for the doctor, its acctually my oh who tells me we wont put ourselvs through all the testing if the dr doesnt feel we need to, his attitude is if its ment to be it will happen, which im kinda starting to feel the same,as im tired of this taking over my life, i woke up last night thinking, if this doesnt happen for us, then i will have wasted years and years of my life, worrying/stressing temping, poas,and thinking about babies 24/7,when in those years i could have been doing other things ...(i know that sounds horrible to say), but im just at the point where im tired of constantly thinking about babies and ttc, the months when ive told myself "right enough temping,taking opk etc" i still in my mind work out when im likley to ovulate,my brain does it without me even knowing lol....im just tired and theres gotta be more to life than being brainwashed by babies and ttc!, but then i cant stop!!! ARHHHHHHHH lol
sorry for the rant but i know you ladies wont gudge me like some ppl would
i look forward to getting to know all you lovley ladies out there, baby dust to you all
I'm sooooo sorry that you hare here under these circumstances. Welcome to the group!!
I'm Amanda 30 Dh is Michael 29. We have been TTC since 2006 with 3 miscarrages, one at 12 weeks, and one at 8 weeks. We had a chemical pregnancy in Nov of 2011. Went to get tested and I have MTHFR and antiphosolipid antibody which means that my body throws clots to the baby which causes it to quit growing. TTC again with lots of meds and Lovenox. We do have our miracle daughter who is 20 months old.
I wish the best and I hope that we are able to be a strong support system for you. I'm sorry that OH isnt really wanting to move forward with testing. THis journey of RPL and infertility is really consuming.
