Default My new RE is a quack!

We went to see him today and waited for 45 minutes in the waiting room.

Actually, I really like the guy (I just titled it that way so you'd read the post
). He said that the chance of having 4 recurrent miscarriages is .008%. Figures.

The course of action is going to be pretty simple to start. I'll increase my folic acid to 4,000mg (or whatever is is that they measure it in) per day, take a baby aspirin (provided it doesn't kill my ulcer), take an anitoxidant, and walk for 30 minutes. These should increase the blood and oxygen flow to my ovaries and hopefully create healthier eggs.

I'm having an HSG and a Clomid Challenge blood test to also help figure things out. They're also going to run an AMH, too. Andy's having the "Advanced Sperm Testing" done, too, just to complete the testing picture.

So we'll go from there. He says we can start TTC after my first D&C period, which will arrive so pleasantly right at Christmas.

I guess now we just wait and see where all of this leads us. We've decided that we're not going to do IVF so other than that, this is our only option. He gave us the option of doing pre-implantation screening of the embryos, but we don't want to do that. And that only screens for the last 11 or so chromosomes, not our Trisomy 9 or Trisomy 1 (which he said he'd NEVER seen before in his 25 years of practice).

Anyway, thanks for reading all of this. I hope to have good news for you after the new year.

That is great news! I did the folic acid, it is 10X the RDA, and the baby aspirin with the added bonus of heparin once I was pg and had my beautiful boy. Good Luck!!
