5 week miscarriage... what comes next?


#1

[SIZE=3][FONT=Times New Roman]I am very confused and have so many unanswered questions about my recent miscarriage and would really just like to see if anyone could answer some of my questions…

First of all I have had two healthy normal pregnancies, I have one 6 year old and one 4 year old… The only complication I have had in either of these pregnancies was with my second I had to have surgery on my left ovary about 5 months into the pregnancy to remove a cyst off of my ovary that was growing larger than the baby. Other than that no other complications and that surgery went fine and had no effect on me or my son. After I had my second son in Dec of 07 I had the 5 yr Merina IUD put in.

Me and my husband decided in August to have the Merina removed and to try for another baby. I had it removed 8/17/11. I had not had a period in almost 4 years as long as I had been on the IUD and the doctor informed me that it could be quite a while before the lining in my uterus was built up to have a period again. I started my period the following week on 8/23/11, which felt like and lasted just as any of my normal periods would have. Then consistently had a period beginning on 9/25/11 and another on 10/25/11.

11/21/11 I took a pregnancy test 5 days before my next missed period because I had symptoms of being pregnant. I was indeed pregnant. I began to bleed a week later on 11/30 and had my HCG tested at 46 then retested 2 days later and it was 12. I did indeed miscarry and there was tons of blood but I never was in any pain at all. I bled for about 5 days and had my blood tested again the next week and HCG was confirmed negative.

So my questions are does anyone know if the surgery on my ovary could have caused a miscarriage? What about being on the Merina for so long? I never really got a clear answer from the doctors I talked to?

What about my period… since I miscarried just a little later than my period should have started should I expect to see my period around the same time this month?

If me and my husband had unprotected sex this weekend, and I happened to get pregnant again right away before another period would I be at higher risk of miscarrying? [/FONT][/SIZE]

I cannot answer most of your questions, except for the first one. Surgery on your ovary, and removal of a cyst would not cause a miscarriage.
I am not sure if the Merina would cause a change in your progesterone levels, but it is worth checking into. Also, I’m not sure of your age, but miscarriage increases with age, and most are caused by chromosomal abnormalities with the baby. I would say if your progesterone levels are normal, you should be able to go on to have a healthy pregnancy. Good luck, and keep trying! :slight_smile:

Thank you for your response… That makes me feel a lot better about the ovary thing I really think I just keep trying to blame the miscarriage on something I did or something wrong with me… But I guess the more I talk to people I am understanding it is actually very common. I will be 26 at the end of this month so I am still pretty young and not really in the high risk age yet. Thank you.

Yes, I work in pathology at a hospital, so I am positive that it’s not the surgery on your ovary. Many women lose an early pregnancy, but that doesn’t make it an easier. Best of luck :slight_smile:

Thank you both of you I am glad I don’t have to worry about it being because of my surgery on my ovary that helps a lot. Thank you.

I have started to try again hope it dusnt take 10 months this tym.i.a My sister had a miscarraige last year but thanks to god she is on her third trimester now, but i feel awkward around her. but she knows how i feel. my sisters feel her stomach in front of me. this makes me very uncomfortable an changes my mood. I still wish my sister the best and pray for her and the baby tht they are healthy and she has a easy labour.:pray:

Good luck with everything!! I started my period on Saturday so we will start trying too right when I am done bleeding. It is very hard for me to see my friends that are pregnant and while I am happy for them, being around them hurts a lot. Even seeing commericials stuff like that I still get teary eyed. :frowning: I am just trying to stay healthy and positive about it not happening again but I am very scared at the same time. Good luck! :wings:
