Dear Carolyn: How old are you? This would be important in determining whether you should be encouraged to pursue any further medical treatment. Also, was chromosomal testing done on the miscarriage tissue to help determine the cause of your loss. Finally, with 5 failed IVF cycles there is much to consider: the quality of the embryology lab, how you responded to stimulation, what the embryos looked like, how difficult was the transfer etc. I think a formal second opinion (not just on the computer) would be in order if you want to try to get answers to your questions. Good luck!

: Here's my history. Ruptured ectopic, right tube gone. Had hsg that
: showed left tube is normal and patent. Also had lap and
: everything looked fine.

: Tried 3 cycles clomid and 3 IUI's. Did 6 IVF's, got pregnant
: on 4th fresh cycle but had a miscarriage at 7 weeks.

: All of my IVF cycles have been perfect according to my Dr.
: but no implantation except the one time. (High quality
: embryo's, thick lining)

: I'm slowly losing hope and don't know what my next step
: should be. What would you advise someone with my history
: to do? Do you think I should get another hsg to see if
: the left tube is still patent? Please advise. Thank you!

: On a bright note I did adopt a baby boy from Russia last
: December, but the need to know what's wrong is still there.

: Carolyn
