Well guess im here now
Just experienced my 3rd MC. Doctors are going to see if i have any issues why that keeps happening. First MC (also first pregnancy) was at 8 weeks, baby stopped growing at 6 weeks. Second was a chemical and happened around 12 dpos. Third i just lost at 5 weeks. Between my first and second MCs. OB wonders about a blod cloting disorder or low progesterone. I believe i have low progesterone but that has never been scientifically proven....docs want me to get hCG checled next week to ensure it fell back to zero. Then go from there w testing. What can i expect, testinf wise? Will i have to out ttc on hold?

First off, I'm so sorry for your losses.

Second to answer your question on what tests to expect, that sort of depends on what the dr you are seeing knows of RMC. I'm in the US and my 'full workup' for my recurrent losses was considerably less than other women's because my dr only tested me for the things that are 'known' to cause issues with pregnancy. Most US drs don't know much about RMC and those that do usually aren't as advanced as some of the drs in other parts of the world.

Anyway, my history is 11 losses, 3 rainbows, with a history of first tri bleeds and blighted ovums. I've had my thyroid tested, my progesterone levels checked (but only during pg, never while not pg oddly enough), numerous CBCs, some sort of blood sugar test, basic clotting and autoimmune panel,rH factor, and MTHFR.

Ttc is probably up to you BUT be aware that many of the clotting, autoimmune, and hormone tests will not be accurate if you are pregnant while getting tested. And some tests need to be repeated in 6 weeks to confirm the results. So it's highly advisable that you put off ttc for a few months and I know it's not easy to wait when you want this more than anything but in the long run, a few months wait to hopefully get some answers is worth it. At least it was for me.

Hi ladies,
I hope you don't mind me posting this here.. I have recently had my third MC in 4 months, and don't have any answers at this stage.
I have a question in regards to those who have the MTHFR gene mutation.. Do you know which mutation you have? Or both?
I do have a mutation, but it's the "lesser" of the 2.. I've got the mutation in the A1298C gene, but my C677T is normal/not mutated.
From everything I have read, they only associate MCs and pregnancy issues with the C677T mutation.

Regardless, I've been taking a folate supplement my naturopath subscribed for just over a year now, and well in advance of trying for number 2 (not to mention I wasn't even aware of it when I got pregnant with my son off our first IVF cycle).

Anyway, I suppose I'm just hoping to see if any ladies on here, in similar situations have any other information on it...

I just feel at a loss to why this is happening...

Katbar, I will share what I was told. Bear in mind that I'm not saying it's true or not but I was told this after asking a genetic counselor I saw, my RE and my MFM. They all told me that mthfr isn't really important. They said half the population has one mutation or the other and the most recent studies show it's not a factor in losses. Like I said, I don't know what to make of that. I was shocked to be told it wasn't important to them.

Thanks for your response! I am actually not too surprised to hear of you being told that, as I have certainly heard others saying similar things. And I know when I mentioned it to my IVF doctor, he wasn't overally concerned, and mostly dismissed it (although in a way, he was kind of dismissive in general - not rudely, but I think he just feels the embryos from the MCs have had genetic issues, and it's just a matter of getting to the healthy embryo).

So hard to know though, as I have also seen women who have had multiple MCs, find out they have MTHFR, go on supplements, and then have healthy pregnancies afterward..

I must admit, that given we had success with our son, and that was the first time I had been pregnant, I do feel like it'd be surprising if this mutation was then suddenly causing recurrent MCs.. I guess all we can do, is try, and try again..

I agree! It's so hard to keep trying. I had two healthy pregnancies before all my losses and is just devastating to be told try again. It is so encouraging though that most women will go on to a healthy baby with no intervention even after multiple unexplained miscarriages ❤
