The journey from miscarriage to whatever comes next

Do recurrent miscarriages due to chromosomal issues predict continued problems? September 22, 2008

That is the question foremost in my brain lately.  Now that I’ve had 4 m/c and one is confirmed as being due to chromosomes, does it mean there is a fundamental problem with the make up of our eggs or sperm?  And that to continue to pursue pregnancy will lead to continued loss or a baby with some sort of problems?

Here is a study that shows that with each m/c due to chromosomal issues, your chance of another m/c goes up by 13%.  I’ll be asking about this at our RE appointment.  http://www.ivf1.com/miscarriage-risk/

I don’t post this to scare anyone.  There are probably other studies that show different results.  I just want to be as informed as possible so we can make a smart decision on whether to pursue medical treatment, how much to do or if we just go down the path for adoption.
