So I had a m/c at about 5w3d a couple weeks ago. The day after I started bleeding my hcg was already down from 229 a week before that to 58, and my progesterone was only 0.5. So I think from my calculations I must have started losing the baby pretty soon after that second hcg. And then I bled like a slightly heavier AF, which stopped over a week ago.
So the more frustrating thing is that before I got pg my RE was going to do a hysteroscopy and sis (like a hsg but with u/s and saline bubbles) and then if that was clear start femara. But now after I had a m/c, she wants me to wait 2 months before we can do any testing or treatment. They say that is their standard protocol whether I was pg for 1 day or 1 trimester. I totally get waiting awhile if your body/uterus went through a lot of changes, but it was barely more than a chemical m/c, and resolved very quickly on its own. I am just so frustrated, bc not only did we lose the baby, but now I need to wait forever for a real w/u and treatment! I just wish they would adapt their treatment based on the individual patient and their situation. My work schedule will be a lot busier in a few months, so I will not be able to have time to go to the dr (I could if I was pg, but not for ttc, and I cannot quit bc I love it). SO frustrating!!! I never imagined I wouldn't be able to get pg by then, but now it is a big reality.
But on the bright side, I am on pelvic rest for only 1 more day, and my hcg seems to be coming down relatively quickly 58-8 in 1 week, and I retest tomorrow. they want it <5. And my acupuncturist just started me on chinese herbs (to see if it works while I am waiting for the RE). The RE did not tell me not to ttc during this time, only the 2 weeks of pelvic rest and no testing or fertility treatments for 2 months.
Sorry for a long rant. Just wanted to share what was on my mind and see if anyone has had to go through similar stuff, and maybe has some hopeful stories of ttc after a m/c. It has been so heartbreaking, especially after ttc for so long before the m/c.
