Re-current miscarriage

Postby Amber » Mon Feb 25, 2013 9:55 am

Hi

I have just experienced my 3rd miscarriage and now have a referral for further investigation. Has anyone else had a referal and got any information on what to expect and any treatments?

thanks

Hi Amber,

Sorry just replied to you on other boards and didn't see this one. My consultant after my MC said options were metformin (for insulin resistance) and aspirin but not sure what that is for! Sorry I don't have any more info

Amber I am so sorry you are having to go through this again. It is just heartbreaking.

I had tests last June which mainly consisted of lots of blood tests for me and one for my OH. They tested my hormones, chromosomes and thrombophilia. I was 'lucky' in the fact that they found a course I have sticky blood which is also called APS (Anti phosphoidlipid Syndrome) or Hughes syndrome. This means that should I be lucky enough to fall pregnant again I will start with 150mg aspirin per day and inject heparin until 38 weeks. Again if I am lucky to get to get that far. For me the odds of carrying a baby increase from 10% without treatment to 70%.

Sending big hugs and I hope you get some answers. If you need to talk you are welcome to OM me.

Thanks Gemstone

I will try that next time, it is only £3 for a pack of 56 75 mg tablets from Boots or even better a pack 32 300mg tablets for 50p, just need half a tablet a day. So along with the maca root I will get some of these and see what happens next time I get pregnant.

Hope you don't have to wait too long for your next BFP

Amber they normally recommend you start on 75mg. I had that in my last pregnancy and although it didn't work I paid to see the best consultant in APS and pregnancy and he did a test which proved that 75mg was not enough and that I needed 150mg. If you take too much it can actually increase the miscarriage rate.
They also prescribed the heparin as it works in a different way to aspirin and actually protects the placenta from your own body attacking it and binds to the antibodies stopping them from sticking your platelets together. Aspirin works by making the platelets more slippy so they stick together less.

I would wholeheartedly recommend going through the recurrent tests as it may be nothing to do with your blood clotting. Do you know when they would do these tests? I had to wait about 4 weeks for them to take the blood and 6 weeks to get the results.

We have only just begun trying again as I also needed treatment for precancerous cervical cells but hoping it won't be too long. Would like to know how you get on and if they find anything. The miscarriage association has also been excellent and very supportive so if you want more information then check out their website and forum. xxx

Hi Gemstone

My appointment is not until 10th April so I am just thinking about what to do in the meantime. I have no intention of preventing pregnancy and aim to try again on the next cycle. I just want to have a plan of what to do while I wait for my appointment. However I will take your advice on the lower dose though.

I have taken a look at the miscarriage association website and forum, however I am trying to stay as positive as I can and the only way I can do that is to have a plan for next time. I will keep you updated though.
