4 Miscarriages, and only 27 :(

by Alesha Hos
(New Zealand)

Four miscarriages so far and my hope of ever having a baby is diminishing fast. I am a fit, healthy, young 27 year female. I dont do drugs, dont drink much at all, and I try to live as green as possible, just dont understand why i suffer so many miscarriages????? Yes I have had heavy irregular periods, but still WHY?

2003 - Had an Ectopic pregnancy at 3.5months - due to undeveloped or a deformed left tube, doctors believe it was possibly from endometriosis , they removed my left tube. Also at that stage doctors confirmed I had PCOS which later disappeared with a healthy diet.

Dec 2010 - 7 weeks pregnant - had a D & C - no clue why I miscarried?

Nov 2011 - 5/6 weeks pregnant - natural miscarriage - INTERESTINGLY - My standard GP had my hormones tested (Please note I had no idea I was pregnant at that stage) My bloods read Progesterone level 8, FSH level 3.6, LH level 2. The next day I found out I was pregnant HCG level 16. 2 days later I miscarried :( Decided to see a GYO/OB Specialist, which he then gave me a prescription for Clomid 50mg. I ovulated with 2 eggs that released on approximately day 21 leading me to my recent miscarriage.

Mar 2012 - 7/8 weeks pregnant with twins - natural miscarriage - Im not sure what blood tests my Specialist did, as he is so useless! He had all the information as above and I have to find out by strenuous amounts or research on my own that, I should have been taking PROGESTRONE, if only my Specialist read the notes from my MC in 2011 he may have picked up my Progesterone level was not sufficient enough to carry a pregnancy. IF ONLY "I" HAD OF KNOWN all about Progesterone EARLIER , who knows I may have been able to save my pregnancies from 2011 & 2012. Sadly I found out when it was all over :(

I had a scan 2 days ago and PCOS have disappeared? Which is a good sign, I can get pregnant thou only having 1 fallopian tube, its just keeping them is my worry. I really hope you could give me some advice. Please note I have already ordered the NATPRO, and will be seeing a NEW GYO/OB Specialist, I am going to request he works in with me as I like the natural approach also.

4 Miscarriages, and only 27 :(

Hi Alesha I'm aghast at your specialist giving you clomid! You don't have problems ovulating or conceiving, just carrying the baby. Clomid is an ovulation induction drug, see here, and here. I think the problem lies in low progesterone, this could be due to the PCOS you once had. Interestingly in all the studies I have on ectopic pregnancies, low progesterone is found. Although they say this is a result, I believe it's the cause, see here, here, here and here. If you should consider progesterone, please read our page on Pregnancy, and this page here too. But please read the page on Oestrogen Dominance first. You live in NZ, your vitamin D is probably too low. This not only reduces the benefits of progesterone, but can cause miscarriages too, see here, here and here. Continued below.

Hi Alesha It's vital for ovulation, conception, a successful pregnancy and the growth of the foetus, see here, here, here, here, here, here and here. These are excellent videos to watch too, see here and here. Please have a test done. For more info on vitamin D levels, test kits etc see the Vitamin D Council, GrassrootsHealth, Birmingham Hospital and Vitamin D Links websites. Blood levels should be 70-100ng/ml or 175-250nmol/L and not the 30ng/ml or 75nmol/L most labs and doctors regard as adequate. The minimum daily dose should be 5000iu's per day, although the latest research indicates it should be 10,000iu's per day, see here. You might consider taking taurine, another nutrient vital for the growth of the foetus, and for the newborn too, see here, here and here. Take care Wray

Thank you for your reply Wray. I just recieved my Natpro cream, but I am unsure how much to take as the leaflet was of little help for when a women is ovulating and trying to the the pregnancy viable with progesterone, could you direct me as to how much and when I should take the Natpro. Just ordered Vitamin D 5000iu capsules. You have given me a glimmer of hope and I am greatful for your help :)
