3 Miscarriages
1lateacher posted:
I have been pregnant 3 times, and each resulted in a miscarriage. Each miscarriage occured early, around 5-7 weeks. I am wondering if anyone can give me any insight of why my fertilized eggs do not implant. I have never seen anything on an ultrasound for any of my pregnancies.
Hyacinth Nicole Browne, MD responded:
I'm very sorry about your pregnancy losses. Early pregnancy losses with an empty sac can indicate an egg quality issue. After three pregnancy losses, I generally recommend that couples undergo an initial evaluation to rule-out an underlying genetic and hormonal disorder, a uterine abnormality, and a possible immune disorder. I would contact a specialist to discuss your next step.
