Question: temporary infertility

 Alka - Wed Jan 21, 2009 1:13 pm

I am 36 years old.I got married in Nov2005.I miscarried 3 times (May2006,August2006 & May2007. Everytime foetus didnt get heartbeat and D&C was done all the three times around 8 weeks of pregnancy.After third miscarriage,my doctor advised LIT and it was done 15 times till Oct.2007.Since then I have not conceived. We tried one attempt of IVF in Nov2008.Three embryos were transferred but I dint get pregnant and the doctor told that the reason of IVF failure could be fragmented embryo. Anyhow, now I am on Hyponidd(2 tablets each with breakfast & dinner), Loprin-75(1 tablet a day) & Sysfol(1 tablet) to cure harmonal imbalance which may be causing temporary infertility acc. to my doctor. Also, I take 1 Thyrox 50 everyday because thyroid was detected 1 year back but has been normal after taking thyrox. I do pranayam(yoga) for 45 minutes every morning.My husband's semen count and motility is good according to reports. He is 44 years old. We don't have any kid till now. We have undergone uncountable tests from time to time prescribed by highly reputed & experienced doctors & we have strictly followed their advice & treatment everytime. All this cost very high yet it has not yielded any positive result and we are totally emotionally drained out.My HSG is normal and follicular study is also normal.What could be the possible reason of not conceiving for the last more than 18 months? Is there any need of IVF at all in my case as I conceived easily and naturally 3 times?

User avatar Hello
Unfortunately the cause of infertility or the inability to carry a child to term is often never known. You are doing everything possible and in some cases, all things come together and the couple is finally able to have a baby. IVF is probably your best option but granted, this is expensive and still risky for failure, especially if hormones are keeping your uterus from sustaining a pregnancy.

If becoming a parent is your main goal, perhaps you should start an adoption procedure. This does not mean you must stop trying for pregnancy but it might help you to feel more optimistic about your future family possibilities.

Good luck.
