cristinamarie92 :  I’m sorry for your losses. Unfortunately CP are often the result of chromosomal abnormalities or thin lining that can’t sustain a pregnancy as it implants, rather than progesterone. Progesterone will increase as your body produces HCG and recognizes a pregnancy, and during the time of implantation your progesterone levels willl likely only confirm ovulation.

Your doctor probably won’t see you since yet since it hasn’t been that long since you’ve been TTC. Check with your insurance – most RE clinic’s do not require a referral and as long as your insurance doesn’t, then you can schedule your own appointment and skip over the basic meeting and general testing with your OB if you choose.

cristinamarie92 :  I had several CPs while TTC. All tests were fine and my progesterone levels were good. They don’t know why it took so long to conceive. 

Is warn you against self medicating as it could do more harm than good. Wait for the tests and see if there is a cause. 

I got pregnant after me and hubby took proxeed for a few months. Perhaps try that.

I would recommend going to your doctor and getting the progesterone testing done before taking anything.

I suspected (self diagnosis) I might have had low pg because of my short luteal phase (8-9 days). I started taking vitamin B6 (100mg) daily. I got my BFP this month and when I had my progesterone tested on day 21 it was 38, which is a good number. Not sure if I ever even had a problem with it or the B6 helped.

cristinamarie92 :  Did you let your doctor know that you’ve now had two MCs? It seems terrible that they wouldn’t take that into consideration even though it hasn’t been a year of TTC.

cristinamarie92 :  I don’t blame you for being concerned. I would be too. FX that you just had two very unfortunate and unlucky MCs, but I would try and find a doctor willing to run some tests in the meantime. Hope you get your baby soon.

cristinamarie92 :  I’m so sorry to hear that, we were in the November group together. This is my second loss as well. I’m not sure about progesterone being a cause of chemical pregnacies, but for comparison purposes, my progesterone was really high and I started bleeding at 5+5. My doctor deemed it a chemical pregnancy too.

I would push your doctor for testing. My husband and I are young too and I don’t think length of time should be a factor in determining the cause (if there is one) of reccuring miscarriage. The American College of Gynecology and Obstetrics just changed their guidelines as well. Originally you had to have had three miscarriages before testing, now they changed it to two. This may be something to mention to your doctor. 

I thought I’d have to pressure my doctor to run tests, but he offered. He’s checking for autoimmune disorders and clotting factors that can affect pregnancy. He’s also checking my husband and I for chromosomal issues. 

Sorry for the wall of text, we just seem to be in similar situations (which is really crappy for us).

I am sorry for yr cps. I would recommend considering to do karyotyping. If genetics is the issue, I think pgs ngs might work for you
