Recurrent Miscarriages - Immune Modification
Hi Everyone

Was wondering if anyone has had similar treatment or if Gynae doc could comment on the following:

I'm 33 years old and we've been ttcing for 3 years now. I've had 5 miscarraiges in the past 3 years. I've been at Medfem Clinic for the past year now, I've had every blood test conceivable, I'm on Glucophage and Staminagro, I've had a Laproscopy and Hystrocopy to remove Endometriosis and Fibriods and nothing but nothing has worked. Still every single pregnancy ends at approximatley the 6 week mark.

Three weeks ago our Dr at Medfem sent hubbie and I off for genetic testing. We're waiting with baited breath for those results, if that comes back normal I start with Progesterone and Immune Modification injections next month on 12th day scan. Has anyone ever heard of immune modification and it's success rates??

My Dr informed me on my last visit there that if this next pregnancy is unsuccessful that my hubbie and I will have to consider alternatives as he has no othe patients in my age group that have not responded at all to the above treatment.

I'm scared, sad and feeling hopeless. And was wondering if anyone could give me some hope surrounding this latest and last round of treatment.

I'm afraid that I don't have any figures for the success of this technology.
