I had bucornuate miscarriage on april 29, 2013..Since then we are trying but no result, is bicornuate is hurdle in conceiving? What should do to conceiv

Yes: Pregnancy is more difficult with a bicornuate uterus and often when one does successfully conceive the fetus can not grow in the smaller uterine horn. There are many options including seeing a gynecologist, considering surgical removal or repair of one uterine horn, and intrauterine insemination with careful monitoring by a maternal fetal medicine specialist. ...Read more

Is it true that the chance of conceiving twins is higher after a recent miscarriage?

Is it true that the chance of conceiving twins is higher after a recent miscarriage?

No: I've never hear that statistic before. Twins have a genetic susceptibility (meaning they run in families). Being older at conception (like late 30's) also increases chances. To my knowledge pregnancy after a miscarriage doesn't increase chance. ...Read more

I am 38 years old with a amh of .81.  No problem conceiving 1st child at 34 and 2nd at 36.  Miscarriage at 35 & 37.  Likelihood of natural conception?

Hard to say: The amh level is a good predictor of how you will respond to fertility drugs and perhaps your chances of getting pregnant with treatment as well. It is not very good at predicting spontaneous pregnancy. A low level suggests waiting is not a good idea though. ...Read more

I miss my period often. Will I have troubles conceiving in the future/prone to miscarriage?

I miss my period often. Will I have troubles conceiving in the future/prone to miscarriage?

Maybe: A woman who misses her period often may have trouble conceiving. A missed period usually means lack of ovulation - of releasing an egg - that cycle. So a woman who misses her period often may have fewer chances in a year to get pregnant than a woman with monthly periods. This situation likely doesn't increase chance of miscarriage. ...Read more

On clomiphene since 3 months still not conceiving. . Also had a miscarriage before clomiphene what can be the reason for miscarriage n NT getting preg?

Clomiphene: Clomid/clomiphene is succesful producing pregnancies in about 50-60% of women who take it; in other words, it doesn't always work - at all. For those who succeed, around 85% do so in 3 cycles. So it's quite possible you could try a few more cycles. It also depends on normal tubes and normal sperm: have you and your husband been tested for this? ...Read more

Ttc,I seem to b ovulating a week before my period.Is this normal could it cause me problems conceiving? We've been tryin for 5 mths after miscarriage.

No: Ovulation occurs 14 days before your period starts. If you have a short cycle you may ovulate sooner than you expect to after your cycle ends. Ex: with a 21 day cycle day 1 is the first day of your period day 7 ovulation ( even if your menses last 5 days). Of course there is some variation. Most pregnancies are conceived 2 days before ovulation. Good luck! ...Read more

A : A person should see a doctor for an infertility evaluation when they meet the diagnostic criteria for infertility or they have a medical history that makes it obvious that they cannot get pregnant. The diagnostic criteria for infertility are based on age. At age 22, you meet the criteria for infertility if you have been at risk for pregnancy 12 months or more and have not conceived. I like to separate the concept of "trying" from being "at risk" for pregnancy. Many of my patients have been sexually active and not on a contraceptive method for many months but have only started "trying" for a limited number of months. I ask them to think back and calculate the total number of months that they could have gotten pregnant and have not. In your case, if that number is greater than 12, then you need to see your ob/gyn or an infertility specialist. As far as medical history factors that would justify an earlier visit, if someone has had an infection or surgery that has caused them to lose the function of both fallopian tubes, there is no need to wait before seeking help. If someone is clearly not having periods at all or very infrequently, they should seek help right away. If someone does an ovulation predictor kit at home and they are not showing a positive for approximately 3 months then they should seek help right away. These are some of the reasons to go directly to an evaluation. It is always a good idea to let your primary care giver know that you are trying to get pregnant. They can do a comprehensive review of your medical history and identify any other factors which would warrant and expedited evaluation. From you past miscarriage you know that you ovulate at least sometimes, that at least one of your tubes was working a year ago as was your partner's sperm. Probably the best thing for you to do is to get an ovulation predictor kit and document ovulation. When doing this, you should not abstain from intercourse until the kit turns positive. If you are having intercourse 2 to 3 times a week already then just continue that. If intercourse is less frequent, start having every other day intercourse when you start using the ovulation predictor kit making sure that you have intercourse before it turns positive and then the day or the day after it turns positive. Good luck! ...Read more

Some do some don't: Gonorrhea and Chlamydia can injure the sensitive tissues of the Fallopian tubes.This can increase risk of life threatening ectopic pregnancy or infertility.Most of the other STD's have other negatives but don't have direct effect on fertility.BV is a nuisance but does not directly effect the reproductive organs. ...Read more

I had a natural miscarriage at 6 weeks, should i get checked? and when is safe to try and concieve again?

Miscarriage, TTC: If you're no longer having any bleeding and are free of pain, then you should wait until you have a regular period prior to trying to conceive (TTC). No need for an exam unless there's concern for infection or retained elements from your previous pregnancy. Definitely start prenatal vitamins now if you're trying to get pregnant! Good luck! ...Read more
