My husband and I are battling secondary infertility and have had 5 fresh IVF cycles and 2 FET (along with approximately 12 IUI's). Our diagnosis is unexplained and we are constantly being told that everything looks great. This last IVF, we had 5 beautiful day 3 embryo's that we transferred and 3 more that made it to blastocycsts (that are currently frozen). On this last IVF (5th one), we had no success. We have had a total of 4 biochemical pregnancies (that were all from IVF or injectable cycle).This past cycle we did intralipids, lovenox, baby aspirin, and dexamethazone. My biggest frustration is that no one is able to tell us what is wrong. We have a wonderful 5 year old son who was conceived with no difficulty. We have had several different blood tests done which we were told were all normal. I had laporscopy surgery a year ago and everything looked great. My big question is what do we do next? We know we can conceive but obviously something has changed. We live about 6-7 hours from your office but were wondering how we go about working with you to try and figure out what to do next and hopefully figure out why I can not get pregnany (and/or stay pregnant)? Thank you so much for your time.

I am very sorry for your losses. We can arrange a telephone or skype consultation where I can go over your history in detail and go over all your records. This is not an uncommon presentation to my practice and there is a very strong likelihood of an immunologic issue. There are of course other things that I will determine from your records that may be the cause, but almost certainly I will let you know why this is happening and we can begin to treat you accordingly. dont despair most of these cases can be successful. Call my office and they will make arrangements for a consultation. I look forward to speaking with you.
