I hope this doesn't scare you women... you've got enough to worry about! But in a nutshell, we most likely had a rare form of ectopic pregnancy in the cornua (between the fallopian tube and the uterus, but on the uterus side). We had a heartbeat at 6+ weeks, but at 8+ weeks it was gone. I had a D&C yesterday, which I must be very complimentary of because I've had no pain and have taken no pain meds. I barely had any bleeding afterwards too. This is my 3rd miscarriage around this same gestation, and my 3rd D&C.
I am sad about this loss, but looking forward. I still want to try again. In my 4 pregnancies, I've always had REALLY low progesterone, and started supplements between 4-6 weeks, the earliest at 4w5d with Daniel. I'm thinking I have a real luteal phase dysfunction because of my history, pre-e, IUGR, and short cycles. Has anyone started progesterone right after ovulation with luck?
