Hello From A Newbie

Hi there,

I just joined a day or two ago, and Unexplained Infertility is one of the many boards I feel I fit in!!

Bit of background.......We've been TTC#1 since Apr '00. I was very lucky to have conceived the 1st month of trying, but sadly lost our 1st precious baby to m/c at 12 wks. We then had a month or two break, but were lucky to fall again within 2-3 months, but again sadly with the same outcome. Once again we had a break and then again fell PG within 4/5 months, only for the same outcome once again.

I then got referred to the RMC at St Mary's, Paddington, where they discovered, after numerous tests, that the m/c's were likely caused by blood clotting and I'd have the blood thinner Clexane from when a HB was seen and 150mg aspirin from a +HPT.
It took us 13 months this time to fall PG. It was a rocky PG, as were the previous 2. But we again got a HB and so started the Clexane. Sadly 2 weeks later, there was no HB. Tx had failed. Too little, too late maybe?

Since then (last m/c was Oct '03) and despite numerous fertility tests, i.e. LH / FSH, CD21, HSGs etc, no cause for the sudden Infertility can be Explained. I had a Laparotomy in Jul '05 to remove a cyst that had grown to 9cm, which also as a result had stretched and swelled my right tube beyond repair :sadface: They also discovered the cyst was growing on a 3rd 'accessory' ovary!! A new cyst grew back! So I only have 1 working tube, but 2 normal ovaries. Oh and DH has had OK S.A. too!

Most people at this stage would have moved on to IVF, but it's not really for me. As we've been lucky enough to have conceived naturally, I'm hoping to continue the trend!

Hi Tamsin, and welcome to :FZ:

I'm so sorry to hear of your losses, how heartbreaking.

I've never managed to get pg myself, but I know there are some ladies on here who have suffered multiple miscarriages and there are quite a few threads about that, and possible causes, information etc. FZ is a fantastic place; the ladies (and gents) on here are incredibly supportive, you can get loads of help and advice, and information.

I am sure that before long you will hear from ladies who have been in similar situations to yourself.

In the meantime I have my fingers crossed xfingers that you will soon get yourself some answers and then hopefully a successful BFP and pregnancy will follow.

Hi Louloulouisa,

So sorry I've not gotten back to you before now.
By immune tests do you mean NK Cells and/or APA?

If so, yes, I've had both. The NK Cells was in the form of a womb biopsy, done at Liverpool Women's Hosp. It came back as normal.
The APA came back as 1 +ive result, so they tried me on aspirin and heparin.

Looks as though things may have progressed on for you?
