3 miscarriages - TTC again -Aspirin & Progesterone cream???
I am pretty sure that there are many of you are either in or have been in the same situation as myself.
My OH and I have been trying to conceive since August 2009. Since then I have had 3 miscarriages. I have a 13 year old daughter from a previous marriage and would love to start a family with my fiance now. I am 35 years old.
Each miscarriage has taken its toll. I am past the due date of my first pregnancy and just now need to get over the hurdle of the next 2 due dates. We have been through the mountains of tests and the doc says there is nothing wrong with either of us and that all 3 miscarriages were simply just bad luck.
Anyway, I am now in my 2WW after taking a 3 month break from trying to conceive and I am looking for some advice from you all.
I have read a couple of threads about taking aspirin and using progesterone creams and was wondering what the pro's and con's are for doing this? Has anyone had any success from using these things?
Hi, obv I can't tell you to take anything, but I have had 2 early mc's this year and started taking low dose aspirin straight after my 2nd mc and I'm now 14 weeks pregnant. I think it helped me get this far. Good luck with what you decide to do and hope you get your bfp soon xx
I am sorry for your losses but I can definitely relate. I have also had 3 early miscarriages in a row within the past year. I am also trying the low dose aspirin. The one I bought specifically says low dose on it and it is 81mg. I am going to be using progesterone suppositories this cycle after I ovulate. Not sure if your doctor would try them but I have heard that they have helped a lot of women who had consecutive losses. Good luck with this cycle. Lets hope for a sticky BFP!!
Hi there, ive just had my 2nd m/c in 2 months. I bought myself some aspirin (75mg) at the weekend i got it off the shelf in tescos. Ive also just ordered myself some progesterone cream to try as well. Doctor seems to think my m/c's were bad luck , really hope thats the case. We have tried for over 2 years for a baby and ive had tubal surgery for blocked tubes so its been a very emotional journey. I already have a 10 year old from a previous relationship and my o/h has none.
I'm sorry for your losses too! Can I ask where you bought the aspirin? I don't really think there would be any harm in trying it!!
There should not be any harm in trying it. I live in the US and I bought it at Target. I really think that most stores that carry aspirin should have a low dose version. Many people take it for their hearts so it is quite popular. I hope you can find some.
Sorry to hear of your losses, seems so many of us are going through the same thing.
I'm taking aspirin and progesterone pessaries from ovulation to BFP or AF, however these were priscribed by my consultant, I personally dont see any con's by taking either they certainly wont do any harm so I would go ahead, good luck.xxx
Hi ladies. I've just been reading through this thread. It's very interesting hearing everyones opinions. I have been taking aspirin for the past couple of months. I think if I haven't fallen pregnant this month I will give the progesterone cream a go. Just a couple of questions... Where do you buy it from, and is there a specific brand I should be looking out for? The only progesterone cream I have seen is on eBay but it says it's for menopause?!?! Is this the right one?
