6wks, 6days post ivf, tech can see fetal pole & sac, no heartbeat. Had gush of blood a few days earlier. Hcg still rising. Is this a miscarriage?

IVF miscarraige: 1) congratulations on you becoming pregnant. 2) this cannot be determined at this time. In your favor: rising hcg presence of pole unfavorable of course is the "gush of blood". However, bleeding sometimes occurs with implantation of the embryp/placental growth. Make sure you're not rh- with a presence of fetal pole, you should see a fetal heart in maximum one week with a normal pregnancy.

Ivf (Definition)

In vitro fertilization is an assisted reproductive technology. Ivf is a procedure used to treat fertility problems and assist with the conception of a child. During ivf mature eggs are retrieved from the ovaries and fertilized by sperm in a lab. A few days later, the fertilized egg (embryo) or eggs are implanted into the uterus. One cycle of in vitro fertilization ...Read more

Hi: Hi cheryl. I am sorry that you are going through this. The most common symptom for a miscarriage at this stage in pregnancy is bleeding. At about 7 weeks a miscarriage could cause cramping that is severe or the cramping might be mild. The bleeding could vary from hemmorhaging to light. It is hard to know if the material you passed is a product of conception. It is usually recommended that you see you doctor soon thereafter if you have light bleeding. For heavy bleeding, a trip to the er might be required due to hemorrhage. Ways that your doctor can tell if you have miscarried include a drop in your HCG level or an ultrasound. Take care.

IVF/icsi/ccs pregnancy but miscarried at 7 weeks after seeing heartbeat. I had two natural chemical pregnancies. RPL normal. What could be wrong? Uterus?

Early abortions X 3: Since your miscarriages are very early this suggests something other than the uterus. I recommend that you have several serum Progesterone drawn at 3 days intervals after ovulation. It may be that with a low Progesterone supplementing with vaginal Progesterone will get you through the critical period.

Has anyone gone through IVF and had a miscarriage around 14 weeks?

Has anyone gone through IVF and had a miscarriage around 14 weeks?

Not uncommon.: Ivf pregnancies are notoriously high-risk for complications, including early pregnancy loss. The most likely explanation for a 14-week loss is genetic and/or anatomical anomalies in the fetus - it is nature's way to deal with major anomalies incompatible with healthy life. Other etiologies are possible but less likely - talk with your physician!

I had two failed IVF and everytime first test came positive and second came negative. Can u plz tell me the reason for miscarriage?

I had two failed IVF and everytime first test came positive and second came negative. Can u plz tell me the reason for miscarriage?

I wish I could...: Frequently we do not know the reason for very early miscarriages like this. It is certainly something you will want to discuss with your Reproductive Endocrinologist. Best wishes!

I am42wf. Just had a miscarriage at 11wks. US showed baby's age of only 7 wks. Had panorama test, all was normal, it was a boy. Feel devastated. Try IVF?

IVF ASAP: If you want to do IVF you need to begin the process immediately as many IVF programs have an age limit of 43 or 43 at which time the program is no longer available.

9 yrs of marriage. Two early miscarriages. No living kid. Recently failed IVF. What can be done? Husband is 37. I am 33

Hard to say: The data provided is brief. If you have worked through a fertility center I would hope they have explored structural reasons for your looses. You may want to consider other review & testing with a clinical geneticist to consider less common genetic or chromosome issues that impair fertility.

Do you believe in preimplantation genetic diagnosis (ivf) when a woman has had 3 miscarriages and low quantity/quality eggs?

Do you believe in preimplantation genetic diagnosis (ivf) when a woman has had 3 miscarriages and low quantity/quality eggs?

Depends: With few eggs or low quality eggs pgd may give you the answer but unless good quality genetically normal embryos are available the result may not help this can be complicated and requires very individual counseling.

Do you believe in preimplantation genetic diagnosis (ivf) when a woman has had 3 miscarriages and low quantity/quality eggs?

No: My answer is really predicated on my moral beliefs. Preimplanation genetics allows you to choose which baby to keep...The others basically get aborted. While I can certainly appreciate the desperation that recurrent losses can cause, I can't personally participate in that kind of activity. On a purely scientific level, it works fine. I just can't on a moral level. Hope that helps.

I'm suffering from heartburn after my miscarriage 3 weeks ago. It was a ivf cycle. Can this cause heartburn I had d&c?

I'm suffering from heartburn after my miscarriage 3 weeks ago. It was a ivf cycle. Can this cause heartburn I had d&c?

Should not: Pregnancy can cause heartburn due to the hormonal changed but after the pregnancy is over this should not still be an issue. Try some over the counter heart burn treatment like Nexium (esomeprazole). If it does not resolve consider seeing a primary care doctor for an evaluation

I'm from iraq I have been married for almost 10years and I have pco &hormone disorder and suffered 2 miscarriages. Do you recommend that I do ivf?

Get expert help: If you can see an expert in pcos, you should do so before anything else. Your pcos must be in control (body weight, insulin, etc.). You also need a work up for recurrent pregnancy loss to prevent another miscarriage. You're welcome to see me here if you can't find an expert near you. Www. Reproendo. Com.

I'm 37yrs old I've had two live births and 3 miscarriages just did 3 embryo implants through IVF what my odds to get preg?

It depends.: There are so many variables to consider, you should really ask your infertility specialist. They should be able to tell you their success rates for patients with similar characteristics to yours.

I am 36 years old and diagnosed with hypothalamic amenorrhe; 1 miscarriage through IVF. Can hypothalamic amenorrhea be reversed?

Treated: This condition can be treated medically but not completely reversed also it's important to know what is causing the dysfunction of the level of the hypothalamus (infection inflammatory process tumor lack of releasing factors etc.) Stay well.

I haven't had a miscarriage, the doc is recommending a curette to help me fall preg, as we have been trying for 4 years, don't want ivf, can this work?

Please ask: We are expressly prohibited from making diagnoses or prescribing treatments online here, but d;c (curettage) is not a fertility treatment in any usual sense. Politely i'd ask your doctor how it is supposed to help and let him/her explain; I haven't done a d;c for fertility in my entire career.

Am 34 years old. Does an AMH level of 0.91 ng/ml means that my chances of conceiving naturally is low? Shd I opt for IVF? Had 1 miscarriage at 10wks

Am 34 years old. Does an AMH level of 0.91 ng/ml means that my chances of conceiving naturally is low? Shd I opt for IVF? Had 1 miscarriage at 10wks

Need More Info: Please do some testing to see if your natural cycle is good. For example your other hormone tests should be normal like Progesterone, TSH and Prolactin. A normal Ultrasound with a thick Endometrial lining is also important. Normal fallopian tubes on hysterosalpingogram is essential. The whole picture is needed to make a good decision.
