Our expert says:
In this situation I would strongly advise that you consider in-vitro fertilization with pre-implantation genetic testing of the embryos as well as additional therapy in the form of intra-lipid infusions, which in our practice has shown tremendous success rates. As mentioned previously genetic causes still remain the most likely and is extremely difficult to exclude and diagnose because these genetic factor may only manifest in the embryo and it is extremely difficult to culture the actual embryo when a miscarriage happens. The products of conception, which are extracted from a D&C at the time of a miscarriage is not truly a representative of the embryo itself and hence the extreme difficulty in excluding genetic factors. Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis may well be a means of identifying the more COMMON chromosomal defects.
