Like I have said I have had 3 miscarriages. 1st was 5 years ago prior to being diagnosed with hypothyroidism, then 2 this past year (last two were with a new partner). My thyroid is normal-thanks to medication. I just had the clotting test done and they both came back normal. At this point i can either do chromosomal testing or try again and see what happens. My doctor is very willing to give me progesterone as soon as i have a positive pregnancy test. I am leaning toward trying again and seeing what happens since my first 2 pregnancies were perfectly normal. Then if I happen to miscarry again have the chromosome tests done. I know it is my call, just wondering what everyone else thinks.....

honestly, i'd probably try one more time, and hopefully you wont have another loss (were your losses early?) if they were, maybe it would just take progesterone to keep you pregnant...If you happen to have another loss, then i'd look farther into testing to see what's going on...I think since you had 2 in a row, I wouldn't be AS worried, if it was 3 in a year (JMO), but since your first was 5 years before your last 2 losses, they all might not even be related, and hopefully it will just be something easy like progesterone...Good luck!!

*hugs* It's really a choice only you and your SO can make. I would look at whether or not you would be willing to do IVFw/PGD or if you would stop trying if it showed that there is a chromosomal problem. If the answer to both of those is no, then I'd probably try again. If you answer yes, then I might be more willing to test first. Of course, insurance would play a factor too. Are they willing to pay for the test? It is a costly one.

Grrrrrr.....Just found out that my BETA is at 44, I miscarried on Oct 26th will this ever be over?
I am 39 years old and anxious to get trying again. I have had 2 periods since the miscarriage, does anyone know if I need to wait 2-3 cycles after the miscarriage or after the BETA level is back to 0. The nurse said after the levels are 0, but I really hate the idea of waiting that much longer.....
I thought the pupose of waiting 2-3 cycles was for dating a due date and to allow your uterus to get 'cleaned out'. Wouldnt 2-3 periods from the start of the miscarriage do that?

I just had to wait til my Beta was under 5. Have you seen the Dr? Sounds like a long time for Betas to drop.

that doesn't seem right...I think either you have left over tissue, OR you are pregnant again....I don't think it would be 44 2 months after your miscarriage...I lost my baby at almost 23 weeks and it didn't even take that long for my HCG to drop....I got my first AF just a month later.

I have been getting my BETA checked every week, every week it has dropped it is just dropping extremely slow. All the doctor has said is as long as you dont plateau we will just keep checking your levels til they are below 5.

I was just hoping to start trying again in January...at this rate i might get to 0 by Febuary.

They did an ultra sound after the first week and they didnt see anything. She also commented that ly lining was rather thin at that point.

Well I just talked with my doctor. My beta levels dropped from 88 to 41 over the last 2 weeks, so I am HOPING that when I go back in 2 weeks I will have a large drop and be closer to less than 5. She said since I have had 2 periods since the miscarriage in October my uterine lining has been shed and I will be able to start TTC as soon as I get below 5.
As for why it has been taking so long for my levels to drop could be due a number of things. She said it is possible that some of the pregnancy tissue could have gotten out of the uterus and is taking longer to be absorbed....
While its not common for it to take longer than the general 4-6 weeks to get back to 'normal' it can happen.....guess im one of the 'lucky' few that needs 3 months to get there.

Still only 10. I am so saddened to hear this. Is you doctor going to do anything to try and figure out why. That seems so long!

I don't understand why drs allow a m/c to drag out like this. Do they not realize how emotionally draining it is??

I'm sorry you are going through this. I hope you get some answers soon & can get back into TTC quickly.
