Had my 1st miscarriage on 2/19 and doctor said since my levels went all the way down and my ultrasound was clear we could try again. 2nd miscarriage was actually 4/1 and again my levels went down quickly and my ultrasound was clear. We were given the all clear to try again and doctor ordered some tests which I will go and get done tomorrow.
I wondered at first if it was possible to be the Mirena iud that I had in for 2.5 years, but the doctor said that he has had plenty of people have them out and they have no issues afterwards. Now after thinking and looking online for awhile at different things I think I have my answer, but I have to ask my doctor about it because I had not really given it any thought.
Right after I got married 8 years ago I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and I had not given it much thought. I had gained some weight and was not ovulating and my free testosterone was high as well as having sporadic periods. I was given Clomid and conceived easily with the first cycle. My daughter is now 7 and my next two pregnancies were surprises and I was not expecting it to be so easy to conceive again. My sons are now 5 and 2. I had the Mirena in for 2.5 years and decided I really wanted to try for another child and hopefully get another girl, but be happy either way.
I had regular periods while on the Mirena and conceived my 2nd cycle after having it removed. I miscarried at about 5-6 weeks which was a shock. I got pregnant directly after that loss and miscarried again at about 6-7 weeks. Now I have to wonder if it is the PCOS that is affecting me again and causing the miscarriages. I have not thought about it, but with the inability I have had to lose weight although I have been dieting and exercising and increased acne make me wonder if it is possible that the PCOS is the cause. If this is the cause then I am hoping the answer will be easy and allow me to both lose some of this extra weight and conceive. I am hoping to bring it up with my doctor on Monda and discuss some options that we may have.
Good luck everyone, I sure hope that we all get the little ones we are dreaming of!!
