I am new to this but I got pregnant on my 2nd cycle of clomid. Unfortunately I have just miscarried but it does show that clomid is very effective.

My husband and I have been trying since April 2007 and started clomid in September after both of us having many tests.

I am now waiting to have a laparoscopy and dye test to find out what is going on with one of my fallopian tubes but hopefully after that I will be able to conceive again.

This miscarriage was my 2nd of 2 (we have no children) but it has happened 11 years apart. If I have a 3rd miscarriage then they say they will do DNA tests.

I am almost 36 (in January) so my biological clock is ticking so if you have any advice on miscarriages please let me know.

Hi Kerry

I'm sorry for you losses, I hope you are both bearing up.

I am 35 and I've also had two miscarriages. I don't have any particular advice but I've just had a round of blood tests at my clinic that the consultant refered to as the 'miscarriage' tests. I'm sure they are standard tests your doctor could tell you about, I know one is for 'sticky blood'. This one came back high for me and I'm taking it again next week because the consultant felt it was a false positive. My doctor was happy to refer me to the consultant because of my age and because of how long we have been trying, do you feel that your doctor with a push might get you some specialist advice?

Even though I've had two miscarriages and I'm 35 the consultant didnt feel that the two miscarriages were related, but I have developed PCOS between the two, in the space of 9 months or so. This was show up not in the 'miscarriage blood tests' but in the standard day 1-3 and day 21 tests - my gp couldn't interpret the results it was the consultant who spotted it. I then had an internal scan to confirm it. Have you been offered these? My progesterone was low in the second pregnancy so that's why it didn't stick.

Don't know if this is helpful, hope its not a cause of worry anyway.

Hi Mrs B

I am under a fertility consultant at one of the local hospitals, our family GP cannot offer us any further advice.

My husband and I have been trying for a baby since April 2007 and after a year were referred to the fertility clinic. Mario (husband) has had several sperm analysis done and he seems to come out ok. It appears that it is me who may have some problems! Under the consultant I have had to have several blood tests Day 2, 8 & 21 a few times over. I have also had a pelvic ultra-sound which didn't show anything major. I have also had a hystersalpingogram (HSG) which did show up a slight problem with one of my fallopian tubes, they termed it as a distal hydrosalpinx but basically I was told by the consultant that it means that there could be a tiny little hole in the tube which could be letting in/out some fluid that could be damaging to a foetus. I was put on 100mg of clomid and for the first month my cycle was monitored by the fertility team at the hospital by doing pelvic ultrasounds to see how the eggs were developing. I appeared to have 6 egggs at the beginning but this then reduced down and I was left with a twin ovulation that first month but I didn't fall pregnant that time. The second month was far more painful on the clomid and I had a lot more abdominal pain which I now realise was implantation as I got pregnant and then miscarried at 7 weeks.

I am now waiting for a laparascopy and dye test which was cancelled due to me being pregnant, so hopefully I will get that done and then be told exactly what is wrong with that one fallopian tube. I am hoping that I will be in hospital in the next 2 months as I only had to wait 9 weeks for the other appointment to come through but I suppose with Christmas in between it could be longer!!

It is good to hear that other people have been through the same predicament as I have, although good might not be the best word to use. Sometimes you can feel so alone but when you do speak to friends, you realise how commone miscarriage is.

I am now reading up on the taking of aspirin whilst pregnant to see if that will happen and my sister read somewhere that a lady who had several pregnancies that ended in miscarriage but had gone through IVF too had taken viagara and had gone full term, so I will try and research that too!!

Well, it was lovely for you to try to help me out and feel much better. I hope that we can catch up again soon.
