Hello Dr Edelstein,
I hope this email finds Dr well.
I really hope dr can assist as I am desperate for some advice on what to do next.
A very short history…
We don’t struggle to fall pregnant, but have miscarriages…
First pregnancy, got pregnant on first try (drank Clomid as cycles was a bit irregular (29-32 days). Saw heartbeat at 8 weeks, missed miscarriage at 12 weeks. – Did not do any tests. (baby stopped growing at 9 weeks)
Second pregnancy, fell pregnant 2nd cycle trying. At 12 weeks, NT measured 6.4mm. Did CVS and little girl was diagnosed with Trisomy 18. Had a missed miscarriage at 16 weeks. (baby stopped growing at 14 weeks).
Third pregnancy, tried to avoid and still fell pregnant… No complications during pregnancy, healthy girl born at 40.1 weeks.
Fourth pregnancy, did not try / avoid. First cycle after birth fell pregnant. Saw heartbeat at 7 weeks. Missed miscarriage at 9 weeks, baby stopped growing at 7 weeks.
My Gynae did a few tests, and all came back normal. (intra phospho lipids, TSH, Glucose, Toxoplasmosis, Cytomegalovirus, Liver, and 2 other, cant remember the names). We’ve also had karyotyping done on my husband and myself, all normal.
Is it time to go to a FS?? And also I have stumbled across a new study about hyperfertility, are you aware of this “condition” and do you know of any studies / treatment for this in SA?
Looking forward to your reply.
