Trying again after MC

Postby Andrea86 » Thu Apr 24, 2014 9:05 am

Hey ladies.

I've been ttc for 2 years, and have done infertility treatments for over a year. We finally got pregnant in January after a Follistim + Femara + trigger combo (first time we tried that specific combo), but had a missed miscarriage. It's been a little over a month since the actual passing of tissue, and my RE is giving me progesterone to jumpstart a period.

I guess I'm just scared to try another cycle and have another loss. Did anyone jump right back into meds after a loss?

Thanks.

Hi & sorry :(
I lost twin boys at 14 weeks due to PPROM & started my next IUI cycle on April 18. I'm on my 2ww now & had 3 follicles with a good lining. I think as long as you're mentally ready the doctors can sort your body.
Good luck! :)

FX for you. When was your loss? :( So sorry to hear that.

I started my meds last night with the same protocol I used the cycle we were successful. I'm nervous, but hopeful.

I had a D&C 3/20 for MC, started Femara and Menopur cycle 4-19 with the first period after D&C. The period was absolutely horrible, lasted 7 days with terrible cramps and clots. But everything has gone well this cycle. My lining was 8 two days prior to IUI and had mature follies pop up.
I did have a small cyst on CD 3 US, not sure if that was related to the pregnancy, but it wasn't estrogen producing.
The biggest part about starting so soon was if I felt ready emotionally.
The follow up appt after D&C I cried just being back in the office. Bad feelings there. But a few weeks of separation from doctors and I felt ready again, and excited to start.
Just depends on if the doc OKs a start and if you don't need a break. A miscarriage, no matter how early, is so hard to go through. Perhaps even more for us who have to work a bit harder for those BFPs.

I am definitely ready to get started. My temps have been so steady this cycle, it's weird! I start adding follistim into my protocol tonight and I have an u/s Thursday to see how many follicles I have growing!

Thank you ladies for sharing your stories! Kelley, let me know how this cycle goes!
