Anybody here go right to IVF after consecutive M/Cs?
I am thinking that it is the route I want to take especially since they can test for chromosomal anomalies. The intramuscular injections sure look scary!

Hi,

I am in my 2nd cycle of IVF. The injections aren't bad. You do get sore but its completely do-able. I think its easier compared to some procedures I've had during TTC.

I am sorry for you losses. Have they figured out why you keep having them? Maybe IVF isn't the answer. Maybe they can just fix what is wrong that you keep having MC. Are you sure it's genetic or quality of egg? Sometimes its things that can be fixed. My neighbor had 2 mc and she is 25 weeks pregnant right now. They found many things that needed corrected so that she could carry her baby boy. I hope the fixes for you are easy too.

HUGS!

I think Gretchen makes some good points. Have they told you why the mc's happen?

Best wishes to you too!

That's what I was going to ask as well...have you had any testing to find a cause for the m/c s? How old are you?

IVF with PGD could help, but the answer might be a whole lot less complicated and expensive!

Hmmm, have you used progesterone after you ovulate??? My doctor is BIG on prescribing progesterone to support the uterine lining, which helps a lot he says. He has done a lot of research on that. Good luck!
