Dear Dr Braverman,
Me and my husband have experienced 9 miscarriages. Four of them have had a normal hearbeat but the embryo has died in w 8-9. The karotype of the last embryo showed triploidy. We have just recieved the results of some immune tests. I have elevated cd56 cells, 21,5 and for the next pregnancy I will be treated with intralipids. Even though the doctors tell me that triploidy is a random event and I am not in a higher risk of getting triploidy again I wonder if all of the miscarriages has been a result of triploidy. Noneof the 8 first were analysed. My question - do you recommend to have an ivf instead of trying natural, to be able to eliminate the risk of triploidy?
Thanks in advance

Dr. Braverman

There are many issues here, first yes IVF with PGD will eleminate the possibility of Triploidy. As for your immune workup based on what you gave me there is not enough information to determine the correct treatement , and I would agree that the majority of the losses were most likely not genetic(Im assuming you have been karyotyped by now).
I would recommend a full and correct reproductive immune workup and be sure of your diagnosis before any treatment or IVF is recommended.
I would be happy to asist you with this.
