Recurrent Miscarriage

Recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) affects 1 to 2% of women. We recognize that these losses are devastating. If you have suffered two losses and are ready to look for some answers, SpringCreek providers and associates are here to support you on your journey.

The first step is diagnostic. We want to help you understand the reasons for your recurrent losses. 

Structural Irregularities

If you’re looking into IVF, you may have seen references to PGT-A and PGT-M. Both are types of genetic testing performed on cells from embryos in the embryology lab, but they have different purposes and screen for different genetic problems. Many people having fertility treatment will not need to have either of these types of testing done, but in some cases PGT-A or PGT-M may help your reproductive endocrinologist find healthy embryos to implant in your uterus during IVF treatment.

Hormonal Irregularities

Having the appropriate balance of FSH, LH, Estrogen, Progesterone, Thyroid, Testosterone and other hormones is critical to both achieving and maintaining a healthy pregnancy. Through the diagnostic process at SpringCreek, we will work with you to find your baseline hormonal levels and create a treatment regimen that will help support the optimal hormonal balance to achieve a successful pregnancy.

Genetic Variations

There are numerous genetic variations that can lead to recurrent loss. As part of the diagnostic work-up, the providers will suggest genetic testing and perhaps a karyotype to understand if a genetic incompatibility is preventing you from achieving a full term pregnancy. Depending upon the results of these tests, either medical therapy during an IUI or more advance reproductive technologies, such as IVF with preimplantation genetic screening (PGT-A or PGT-M), might be suggested as the optimal treatment plan.

Immune Issues

Pregnancy creates a unique challenge for a woman’s immune system. The woman’s body has to recognize that the embryo is a special entity that needs to be nurtured and protected. Women whose immune systems are not functioning correctly may struggle with RPL. Their bodies may perceive the embryo as an invasive foreign body that needs eliminated. Our understanding of the complexities of the immune system are evolving. SpringCreek providers use diagnostic tests and evidence-based treatment options to provide hope and successful outcomes for women who face these health challenges.

If you have suffered from RPL, there is hope. We understand that you have to go through the thing you fear most – another loss – in order to achieve your dream of a successful pregnancy and finally having a baby. We have state of the art treatment, support groups and TLC to support you on your journey.
