I have a long IF history - starting in 2001 when I stopped BCPs w/o pregnancy until I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2004. I did one round clomid, success, but it was ectopic or something - I got pregnant again in 2005 with my son who was born in March 2007. We started TTC --2 in April 2008 but didn't get pregnant until August 2008 that was chemical. I had ovarian surgery in April 2008 that damaged my ovary (supposedly - on dr finds it the other doesn't) and was told I have a sticky left tube that is attached to the good ovary. I did 3 IVF in 2009 - all failures - I was doing an EPP before IVF 4 - when I got pregnant with by daughter who was born in June 2010.

We started TTC --3 in March 2011, and I got pg right off (after 30 medicated cycles this was amazing), but it was chemical (beta was below 160), Aug/Sept - chemical and Sept/Oct _ ANOTHER LOSS! I have gotten pregnant 3 of 6 cycles this year - unheard of for me - and all losses. I have been using Clomid (my son was a clomid baby and daughter was a femara baby)

I am now 37, I am obese (but was with all the other success and births too), have PCO, have clotting issues but take baby aspirin and lovenox, may have Still's disease (auto-immune), possibly only have one working ovary and a sticky tube.
On CD3 of this latest miscarriage my FSH was 5 and my Estradiol was 20 (a little low?).

What could be wrong? We are racing against the clock and I feel hopeless.

I have several patietns with Stills disease who respond well to immune treaments as this is likely the problem you are having. I can help you with this, please feel free to call my office and schedule a telephone consultation and I can guide you through the workup and manangement.
