Desperately Praying for #2 Recurrent Miscarriages & PCO
Hi, Im Joyce & DH (2nd marriage) is Mario. I have a beautiful 2yr old baby girl (from my first marriage) who is a miracle and is the love of my life. I have miscarried 7 times total + 2 chemical pregnancies. I have been told i have a progesterone deficiency & that with one of the miscarriages i had a weak vaginal vault (whatever that means).
Im currently seeking out the help of an R.E. who is going to do an HSG test on me next cycle & lots of labs.. In addition to doing exploratory lap in the future for Endometriosis since i have been exhibiting signs & symptoms of Endo.
Im also currently battling Neuropathy & Anemia. My Neurologist thinks i may have MS and are running tests on me for that. I have to go through an EMG next month & I just went through an MRI & labs which discovered my Anemia.
I just had a m/c last cycle on Oct 10 i began spotting it. Although i never passed anything with my HCG going from nearly 200 and falling it was confirmed when they didnt see a fetal pole and my sac had shrank that i was losing it. They never confirmed that it was a normal pregnancy and i was told that it could have been a blighted Ovum.
Despite the fact that we were supposed to try not to get pregnant this cycle, we havent listened - but not on purpose. DH & I hate condoms and BC in general and felt it was unfair to use condoms when we are married. So we thought we'd try the withdrawel (pull-out) method. Which hasnt worked yet since DH enjoys himself so much.. :roll:
We are now in the 2WW and i think we have pretty fair chances of being preggo this cycle. Whether or not it sticks is another story since we dont know what is causing our losses. I pray that if i am pregnant that this one sticks. DH has no children & loves my DD like his own but badly wants one of his own. I want so badly to give him one. I take progesterone at the end of my cycles during the 2WW to support a pregnancy until AF arrives.
Well i guess thats it..
Went to see my New OB today- The verdict... *UPDATE* (xp)
At this moment- Not pregnant...
I LOVE MY NEW OB!!!!!!!!! Anyways right away he wanted to do an ultrasound... The verdict on that- he didnt see a pregnancy at this point- my urine test at the office was neg.. And he said everything looked normal except............................................ .....
MY OVARIES.... HE SAID I HAVE PCO! And wanted me to start 50mg of Clomid. In addition he put on me 200 mg of Prometrium in the evet my chart shows im preg and or i get a + preg test before my "Clomid Check". He calls em Clomid checks where i call the office at the end of my cycle for them to do what they call a clomid check. They will then do labs & ultrasound to make sure my ovaries arent over stimulated and then he will decide whether or not to up the dose.
He said my Uterus appeared normal after the blighted ovum and said that he felt it was my PCO to thank for the m/cs because of my hormones being off (in the other doctors labs results) and literally wanted to know why the other doctors didnt see it.. :dontknow: Prob because they are idiots..
Anywho he said for me to wait for my AF and take Clomid 1 50mg pill days 5-9. He said if AF doesnt show this weekend to take another preg test.. He said if it still hasnt showed by next week to call and he would consider giving me a shot to induce AF..
At this moment he said im not preg but he said i still could be but just too early at this point and he wanted to wait it out and see. He also said that the PCO or my levels from my blighted ovum could some how have registered the faint line on the pregnancy test but he didnt see a sac or anything of any size in my utero to actually say yeap your preg.
He also said the he felt alot of the cause of my m/c was due to the PCO because of the fact it can cause bad eggs or something like that. and he also wants me to continue charting and all...
So - Im not preg as of right now- Sorry about that everyone.. Im just as confused as you are i promise...
I have Polycystic Ovaries and Now im a Clomid Chick... Ok I can handle this? (taking a deep breath) Thanks for listening everyone...
