    Default Help! 2 miscarriages so far and odd ovulation this month

    Hello, I have never blogged before but I am lost for answers. I recently had two miscarriages over a 6 month timeframe. I recently had my first period since the last miscarriage and did not ovulate until day 22-23 ( I normally ovulate day 18) after the last day of ovulation ( I use accurate test kits to know the exact day) I should not have started my period until April 2 but I actually started 2 days earlier than I should have, I never start early like that. If an egg even dropped and attached during ovulation woudl my body have even detected the attachment of an egg if i started my period 2 days later? If anyone has any information to offer it would be greatly appreciated!

    How many days after ovulation does your period start? 12-14?

    Sometimes after mc's, it takes your body a little bit to fully recover and for your hormones to come down and get back to normal.

    I have had three confirmed early miscarriages and every time they were followed by a wacky cycle.

    Typically implantation occurs 7-10 days after ovulation, so in the situation you describe, a fertilized egg wouldn't have had enough time to develop properly for implantation to occur. Since this is your first cycle post-miscarriage, there is no reason to believe this will be typical. Keep tracking your cycles and you can get a better sense of what your body is doing next time around, and if you notice things don't seem to be getting back to normal, you can bring it up with your doctor.

    When I was on my regular cycle I would ovulate at day 18 but since that was my first cycle since my last misscarriage I ovulated at day 23 and then started my period 2 days early than what I was supposed too. But thank you for the comment because now that you say the egg does not implant until 7-10 days after ovulation there is no way that round of ovulation could have worked. I will keep trying next time and hopefully my ovulation and cycle will be back to normal. Both miscarriages I was at 8 weeks.

    Gwenn, were you ever able to find out what caused your miscarriages?

    No - my RE was not terribly interested in pursuing that angle and was pushing me toward IVF so I took a break to consider what my next step was. And I'm still on a "break" at the moment - I'll probably see a different RE next time around.

    After all my miscarriages, I also had a really crazy cycle first before going back to normal. I am not even sure I ovulated those first cycles and if all you did was OPKs you also can't be sure that you even ovulated. You would need an ultrasound, progesterone test or be doing a basal temperature each day to actually verify that you ovulated.

    any suggestions of the best OPK out there? I have been using the clear blue digital "smiley face" test kits, they are very expensive but seem to be the most exact ones.

    Did you find RE? It's Reproductive Endocrinologist - those are specialist doctors who work with infertility (OBs know how to manage pregnancy, not how to get you pregnant).

    I think the smiley face tests are the best, although they are definitely the most expensive.

    ETA: Oh, and welcome!

    I'm so sorry for your losses !

    Has your OB done any testing? I recommend an RE also, but you may want to find out what your insurance covers first since the testing and treatment options can be extremely expensive.

    Keep us posted !

    Thanks for the info Gwenn. Yes I have seen an RE for the first time two weeks ago since my OB decided she did not want to do any testing on the fetus after the DNC. The new RE is a man and he is really nice, he seems to think I still have hope and that it was just a run of bad luck and hopefully not a regular occurence. Kellyowens I did do an AMH test to test my ovarian reserve and that came back really high so that is great news that I have plenty of eggs. I have a fairly regular period and ovulation cycle other than this last go around but I am sure it is just my body adjusting. My DH and I also did a genetic carrier test to test our chromosomes and both of those also came back normal. I have also done the Lipo, protein, lupus, (blood clot rounds) MHFTR test and all of those came back normal also. I am on folgard now due to a slightly low MHFTR test but she said that would have nothing to do with the consecutive MC's. Are there any tests you could suggest I take other than the ones I have listed? The next step is a ultrasound during my AF to I guess look at my ovaries and fallopian tube... that is this Thursday so we shall see how that goes. Good luck to everyone
