I have been pregnant 4 times naturally and miscarried at the 6th week each time. There was a sac but no fetus. The last time I concieved the heartbeat was heard during the ultrasound. Doctors have told me that I my eggs are old and that I need fertility treatment. I tried fertility treatment many times and did not concieve. However, I concieved naturally several times. I concieved at ages 19, 25, 38, and 43. So, clearly when I was 19 and 25 my eggs were not old. Does anyone have any ideas why I am loosing the pregnancies?

  • It's always good to check for low thyroid function as a starting point. Hypothyroidism can cause miscarriages, so it's worth doing some research on the net about low thyroid function, and then getting tests done.

  • You could have Endrometriois and a weak cervix. I had two miscarriages, one 3months and the other 6 months. i took fertility pills, but also conceived without them. You might want to try progentrone suppositories once you get pregnant again because your lining of your uterus may not be thick as it should. did you hae bleeding during your pregnancy? did the doctors check your hormone levels? dont give up.

  • Have you been examined to see if you harbour group B streptococci also called Streptococcus agalactiae in your vagina as this organism has been linked to multiple miscarriages.

  • Hi.I dont wish this to sound harsh, but a duration of 24 years from your first pregnancy to the recent, all 4 ending in miscarriage, maybe its just natures way of saying its not meant to be. Maybe if you did manage to carry a child to full term there could be severe problems or disabilities and your body recognises this and so miscarries. By all means continue to research what the problem is and do what you feel is best for you, but maybe you'd want to consider adoption, or fostering as an alternative if you are looking for a child to raise and to love?

  • :) Hello Again; I am finally starting to look before i leap! The person that posted ahead of me has a splended idea, adoption* A very dear friend of mine began this process about 23 yr's, ago & to date has adopted 3 children that now are grown. They all are just one big happy family! The answers to the question "why" can't i bare children are in Gods hands. So i suggest you get to goin & find a family for yourself!

  • Have you ever been checked for Insulin Resistance? PCOS? It took me almost a year to get pregnant with my second child. I kept taking progesterone and estrogen to either make me have a period or to stop the one I was having. My gyn did some blood work. I had Polyccystic ovary syndrome. This is caused by insulin resistance. I was prescribed Glucophage to counteract the insulin resistance and became pregnant within the month. NO Fertitlity meds. I had some break through bleeding the first trimester. They put me back on the Glucophage and progesterone to be sure that I did not miscarry. I delivered a healthy baby.If you have a family history of type 2 diabetes, especially in the women in your family, you have a strong genetic prevalence to have insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. If this is the case, talk to doc about checking you for PCOS and insulin resistance.Good Luck!

  • Hi I am new to this site. I am now experiencing my 4th miscarriage. I feel as though it is a sign to stop trying. My husband and I are in perfect health and have tried for 3 years to have a successful pregnancy. We are devastated once again and feel as though we have nowhere to go from here. We have kept our pregnancies a secret from most because we have been let down so many times in the past. Is there anyone else that has walked in these shoes. We want children so bad. Me (36yrs) husband (32yrs) We cannot continue miscarrying every time we concieve. People come to these websites for real advise, not for fairytales about a carpenter that can walk on water! Doctors don't write a prescription for the bible for a reason! Thanks but no thanks for your completely useless advice.

    8 Surprising Facts About Cholesterol

    Did you know that one in six US adults has high cholesterol?

  • Have your Doctor's tested you for the anticardiolipin antibody or lupus anticoagulant. These are autoimmune diseases that cause the blood to clot. During pregnancy a clot forms and causes fetal death. The treatment is anticoagulation prior to pregnancy and throuout the pregnancy. It has had a good success rate. Well good luck and best wishes.

  • The Bible is not a fairytale whatsoever and in order for you to know and understand the hidden faith which you and every other person in this world does possess, you would understand that it is very reassuring in times of trials and tribulations. Doctors dont write perscriptions for the Bible because most are scientific-based, you know evolution, created by man?? Unless you went to a family christian-based doctor, you wouldn't get that type of advice. Sadly enough, a lot of people would get offended if every doctor gave out inspirational help instead of a medicinal handout. Try picking up the Bible once in a while, it's not scary, and you just might begin to believe. If God sees that your trying, he'll reveal those feeling to you. Ladies, this is the best advice I could give anyone in such a hard time, but remember God made the world, the plants, the animals, for us...which in turn to be used or our benefits. He'll reveal to us which medicine/remedy He created with His divine love will work for us, and in the end, good or bad, we WILL be satisfied and reassured for all eternity!!__________________________________________________________________People come to these websites for real advise, not for fairytales about a carpenter that can walk on water!

  • I would first seek a second opinon...'old' eggs is not very professional and sounds like a 'I Don't Know' to me. Look at getting an abdomenal ultrasound, that might reveal the problem if it isn't hormonal. Or get a battery of hormonal tests. And I'm sorry to play into this but I have to say something about the religious speak. This is not the best forum to be coming in and talking strictly about faith in God. People come on here to get medical advice from people and their experiences, not religious support. If they were looking for that they would look into a religious forum or their local church.Albeit, the original comment was rude and brash, but I have to agree with the message. It is imposing and rude for you to assume that everyone who posts on here either believes in the God you do or any at all (especially considering that this is a more scientific forum). Personally, I find it drole and annoying when people spout messages at me like that.

  • Well if you read my message clearly enough you'll see that I was trying to imply that. The people that want to give to seek religious advice..seek religious advice...and the people who want to seek the scientific version from the doctor...go for it...I just thought I'd give some inspiration for people who were hanging from thier last string, an option you know? Isn't that what we are all trying to do here, is suggest options?? I wasn't assuming anything about anyone nor did I mean to spout anything at your personally, it's just upsetting that there are many people in this world who don't want to hear the faith-based version.Like I said in the beginning, If your a woman who hasn't found relief from the countless medical procedures and medicines and have spent tons of money..this just might help..I would first seek a second opinon...'old' eggs is not very professional and sounds like a 'I Don't Know' to me. Look at getting an abdomenal ultrasound, that might reveal the problem if it isn't hormonal. Or get a battery of hormonal tests.

  • I, too, have had 4 miscarriages and in two years. The last one was two days ago. I am going back to my wonderful Dr. tomorrow. My Dr., who has a waiting list 3 months long to get in to see her, told me to pray. I was with another Dr. before her and she is doing tests and trying medicines that the other Dr. didn't do, but I found great comfort in knowing that she, too, believes in the power of prayer. I wish everyone the best of luck in trying to have a baby and please keep me in your thoughts as well. Unless you have been through this, you have no idea how hard it is and it gets harder after one.
