2 early MCs, heartbeat seen in 2nd case, no live birth, turner's synd in fetus 2nd case, karyotyping & antiphosopolipid normal. Way fwd? More tests?

Try again: Abnormal chromosome patterns are seen in many of the MC's studied, so this would not be unexpected. If both you and spouse have been karyotyped & normal, you are not carrying a translocation that would doom you both to expect MC's.Consult the clinical genetics department at Toronto Children's if you have not already and see if their is anything more they recommend. ...Read more

If parents' karyotyping is normal, what are the chances for recurrent early miscarriages due to chromosomal problems in fetus? Pls answer as clearly

Ans: There is always a possibility of a mutation. This cannot be predicted. However just because on the outside you are normal does not mean you do not carry a recessive gene. You and your partner can have gene mapping. But again remember thecwayvthe chromosomes line up is chance. But if you have abnormal genes you can put a percentage on the chance of that gene showing up. Again all a toss of the coin ...Read more

3 miscarriages. Fetal karyotyping normal. D&c revealed uterine septum, but have healthy 7 y/0. What tests should i/we have next? $ is an issue.

Depends on you: To some extent you already have a good deal of information.You know that you can carry a baby to a healthy delivery. You also know you have a structural uterine defect that may cause a miscarriage. I'm not aware if they could reduce or remove your septum, or if such surgery would help.That may be a reasonable thing to discuss with your doc. ...Read more

5 months pregnant. On amniotic fluid sample test, "fetal karyotype was found to be 47, ##, +21 indicating down syndrome.". Should i go for abortion?

5 months pregnant. On amniotic fluid sample test, "fetal karyotype was found to be 47, ##, +21 indicating down syndrome.". Should i go for  abortion?

Personal decision: Yes, your child has down's syndrome. I have no idea how those children are treated in india. However, they are the most loving, kind people i care for. They have the capacity for love and joy unlike any of my other patients. Will the child require extra care and have different needs - absolutely. Only you can decide if you have the capacity to provide this and continue the pregnancy. ...Read more
