Am I doing the right thing?

Hi ladies,

Just wanted to get advice!

Those of you who know my story will know I have had five years of infertility and this year two mmc after taking Letrozole and progesterone.

Mc tests all came back clear and I have now been advised to try again. I have been prescribed my drugs with a slight tweak plus the addition of 5mg folic and 75mg of aspirin.

It will have been three periods since my 2nd mc when I try again but I am cynical and emotional. NHS IVF funding has gone due to their mc policy so I can't have that anymore as we can't afford to pay private.

If you were me would you try the drugs one more time? X

I was in a similar position to you (minus infertility) and I gave it one last go. 4 miscarriages with no clear reason found. I had high dose folic acid, aspirin and heparin injections. I was incredibly lucky and managed to have Dd.

It's a massive desicion to make. Good luck whatever choice you make.

Hi Mike that's so nice to hear.

I suppose it is worth trying again but I am scared. I hope the babies don't feel any pain etc, I'd hate to inflict any suffering onto them sad

Making the decision to stop is sometimes the easier one I think.

I remember with the first few feeling so determined that I was never going to stop trying. The last one put me in a pretty dark place and I knew I couldn't have kept on much longer. I said I'd have tried once with heparin and then have one shot at (privately funded) IVF (icsi).

Do you mind me asking what heparin does and why you had it? Thinking I may ask my consultant if I can try that this time too! X

It's a blood thinner. Although most of my tests came back normal for clotting issues my consultant was keen to throw everything at it. I did have a problem with Free protein S levels, but the results were so varied I never got a clear answer.

Oh ok thanks for letting me know. I'll ask the consultant if I can have that too. I'll try anything to be honest.

Thanks for chatting, helps to know other people have faced similar and had a good outcome.
