Hi all
The title says it all. I've had 2 successive early missed miscarriages and it's taken quote a while to get pregnant each time. I'm now 41 and feel like time is really ticking and my chances are running out. I want to see a doctor and looking for any recommendations of some one good in London or Herts.
Thanks for reading

Look up Dr Shehata at the Miscarriage Clinic

Dr Lesley Reagan at St Marys Paddington runs a recurrent miscarriage clinic. I went to see her after 2 MMC under my belt at the age of 43. I attended as a private patient and it wasn't cheap but she was empathetic, thorough and no nonsense which is how I like my medic professionals smile. In my case the conclusion was that my egg quality was poor and that it was likely that I would continue to miscarry but i might be lucky to catch a good egg and she would help support any subsequent pregnancy.

Whilst upsetting it allowed my DP and I to really decide what we were willing to do. In our case we decided to explore egg donation and at the age of 45 I gave birth to my son.

We are going to try for a sibling with a frozen cycle. Although not what I wanted to hear - it laid out my options for me.

Good luck. flowers

I'm 41 with one year of old twins and I went to the Herts & Essex fertility. I can not rate them enough!! I travelled far to have treatment there and got pregnant first time and so did my friend, both with twins. X
