4 Miscarriages but Never Giving Up!

by Norli
(Kuala Lumpur)

I am 29 years old and i was diagnosed with PCOS after 3 years of trying to conceive and ending with 4 miscarriages. I was devastated that it took so long for several gynes to find out the reason for all my miscarriages.

I am not overweight, exercise frequently and am not under much stress so the doctors were surprised that I have PCOS.

The only clue they had was irregular cycles.

I am now taking metformin and Fertiliaid to help with my irregular cycles. So far my cycles are beginning to be more stable instead of the erratic 27 to 40 cycle days.

I am still trying to conceive naturally and I am hoping to get pregnant again. I am telling myself to never give up.

Fertility Tips

It's very disheartening and discouraging to have four miscarriages! But don't give up…you may have a successful pregnancy next time.

Polycystic ovary syndrome is a really a loose collection of signs and symptoms that indicate a systemic metabolic and hormonal disorder that some women have.

It was probably caused while you were a growing fetus in your mother's womb. It may have also be partially caused by what you ate and what you were exposed too as a very young child. Environmental factors during early development are known causes of future disease as an adult, including infertility.

Part of the problem is that your egg quality may have been impaired during your early development. And, you may have a predisposition toward hormone imbalances, which make ovulation more difficult, and reduce the odds of a successful pregnancy.

Metformin is a very useful medication IF you have insulin resistance. By improving insulin function, you can help yourself normalize other hormones and signaling molecules.

A healthy diet with lots of vegetables, high quality protein, essential fatty acids, etc. can be a great help for a better pregnancy outcome.

You're more likely to ovulate, become pregnant, and finish your pregnancy if you have an optimal level of vitamin D (the "sunshine" vitamin). According to one study, 50% of white women and 90% of black women have a serious vitamin D deficiency. This is shocking!! A vitamin D deficiency contributes to PCOS and all of its symptoms, including infertility. Get a test from your doctor.

Also get your thyroid function thoroughly checked. Thyroid insufficiency is a known cause of miscarriage.

If you're considering IVF, be careful! Do your research first and ask plenty of questions. Your eggs will be exposed to an artificial environment, with possible adverse effects on your future child when he or she becomes an adult.
