I had my 5th miscarriage one week ago and to be honest DH and I are devastated, we don’t know what to do or what’s next. Dr says we should give PGD a try, but what if the causes of failure are not genetic or chromosomal? What if they’re immunological?
In any case, I’d like to learn more about the success rates of PGD, and also what’s your opinion taking our case into account? Do you think it’ll work for us? What about egg donation or surrogacy?

Recurrent miscarriages can occur due to multiple reasons, being one of them linked to the genes of the embryo. Some genetic abnormalities allow for fertilization and embryo development but it stops developing at some point early in pregnancy. In other words, embryonic arrest occurs very early in pregnancy, and that’s when we talk about miscarriage.
If in your cause recurrent miscarriages occur due to a genetic problem, PGD could indeed be the solution for you. This genetic analysis is done prior to the transfer in order to determine whether the embryos have some kind of genetic abnormality that compromises their genetic material. Once the affected ones are detected, they will be dismissed.
The chances for IVF with PGD to cause an ongoing pregnancy depend on the cause of recurrent miscarriage. If it were a genetic cause, it will depend on the odds of obtaining embryos without genetic abnormalities, too.
On the other hand, as you mentioned, the cause of recurrent miscarriage can be due to immunological alterations that are causing your organism to reject the fetus, thereby leading to miscarriage. In this case, PGD would be effective only if the cause is determined by genetics or is a consequence of a genetic abnormality.
In any case, examining the remaining tissues from your miscarriages would be interesting in order to find the cause or the reason behind them.
I hope this helps,

Dear you are definitely going through much of a hard time right now facing a miscarriage is on its own so frustrating but you just have to hold on to everything. Rather than PGD, I would advise you to go for surrogacy as there are certain results. Hope for the best and just do not lose hope at all.08/25/2018 at 16:50
Oh, my 5th miscarriage. Dear, you definitely had been through a lot. It is really sad to hear that you and husband are going through a tough time. Just do not lose hope dear. It is definitely a hard time in your life but it will pass. Good things will come. For that, you have to remain optimistic. There are many ways through which one can deal with the curse of infertility. People are changing their lives with it in numerous ways. You just need to look more broadly into the possibilities available. You have to remain calm also. Sometimes IVF takes time to show it’s results but at right time it does. So, just remain positive because there are clinics out there which will guide you wonderfully. Will solve all the queries from your head. All the best for the future dear.08/27/2018 at 08:36
