Recurrent loss, unfussy womb?
4

Sarahsammy · 14/12/2021 06:48

I got pregnant for the first time around this time last year, i’ve never managed to get pregnant before (I was 40 at the time, now 41).

I miscarried the first one in January this year and have had 3 miscarriages since then so 4 in total this year.

I had a womb scan yesterday and that’s all looking normal. The consultant said it’s possible I have an unfussy womb, so the eggs are implanting when usually they would be rejected.

Has anyone else been told this and what, if any, advice or treatment were you given? My most recent miscarriage was just over 2 weeks ago and we’re waiting on genetic tests to see if that is causing an issue.

There just doesn’t seem to be much information about unfussy wombs but he said it’s a growing theory and there’s more research happening

So sorry for your losses. I was told similar, I have had three babies but been pregnant 9 times. Other than getting pregnant the first time I got pg with each time of trying but then lost often.

I found it really confusing and made me much more pragmatic about the losses.

Hope you get one that sticks soon

@LefttoherownDevizes I’m sorry to hear you had to go thru so many losses but very happy to hear that you’ve had 3 success stories! Did you take anything medication etc or do anything differently in the successful ones?

I spoke with the miscarriage consultant yesterday and all she suggested was progesterone, a pelvic scan/exam and just kind of hoping for the best I think. My age could be the problem but she did say she’s seen lots of women older than me that have had successful pregnancies so I do have some hope I guess

I am currently going through my 4th miscarriage since June this year. I have had blood tests and scans and so far no one can tell me why it is happening. I am not getting far though, never had a heartbeat. I have a healthy 15 month old who was my first pregnancy so makes it even more confusing...
I am going to pay privately for further testing that isn't covered by the NHS (NK cells, male side DNA fragmentation) because I surely cannot just be that unlucky to have had 4 random chance miscarriages...
