You don’t have to face recurrent pregnancy loss alone
When you experience a miscarriage, you may feel devastated and very alone. This feeling intensifies after two or more miscarriages. However, if you’ve experienced recurrent pregnancy loss, you aren’t alone. When you visit a Dallas fertility doctor from our practice, you will find a partner in your care who is committed to helping you bring home a healthy baby.
What is recurrent pregnancy loss?
The American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) defines recurrent pregnancy loss as two or more consecutive pregnancy losses. If you have experienced more than one miscarriage, it’s time to visit a Dallas fertility doctor. A board certified reproductive endocrinologist at Dallas IVF can diagnose the problem and develop a customized treatment plan to help you find pregnancy success.
Diagnosing and treating recurrent pregnancy loss
The causes of recurrent pregnancy loss vary. Some of the causes include hormonal issues, infections, genetic problems, autoimmune disorders, maternal age and structural abnormalities in the female reproductive system. Sometimes, more than one cause is responsible for recurrent pregnancy loss. In other cases, the losses may be unexplained.
Most of the causes of recurrent pregnancy loss can be treated, even unexplained ones. However, a proper evaluation is the only way to make sure that you receive the proper treatment. This evaluation will often involve several blood tests, a genetic evaluation and a transvaginal ultrasound.
Once your Dallas fertility doctor receives the results of your testing, he or she can move forward with developing a treatment plan. The recommended fertility treatment will vary depending on the cause or causes of your recurrent pregnancy loss.
- If a genetic issue or advanced maternal age causes recurrent pregnancy loss, your doctor may recommend in vitro fertilization (IVF) with preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) to screen for healthy embryos. In some cases of advanced maternal age, your Dallas fertility doctor may recommend IVF with donor eggs.
- If uterine abnormalities such as a uterine septum, polyps or fibroids are responsible, then minimally invasive fertility surgery could be the answer.
- If an infection or autoimmune condition is causing the miscarriages, treatment could be as simple as treating the infection or condition.
Each Dallas fertility doctor on our team is committed to developing an individualized treatment plan for patients who have suffered multiple miscarriages to ensure the best outcome.
