i am 43 and have had 2 miscarriages within the last 9 mos. i want to try chlomid. what do you suggest?

Hmm, why do you feel you want

Hmm, why do you feel you want to try clomid? It sounds like you might just need to see a doctor for other guidance. I mean, you already know that you have eggs and can get pregnant, there is just something from keeping your conception. But then again, it might be the best thing cause my s-i-law had the same problem. She took clomid and after her 3rd round, she had a little boy. All clomid will do is produce more follicles and hopefully more eggs. www.ivfdonations.com good luck to you and wish you the best

Unfortunately, the older mom

Unfortunately, the older mom is, the more likely a miscarriage. Women who are 35-45 yrs old have a 20-35% chance of miscarriage, while women over the age of 45 can have up to a 50% chance of miscarriage.

And, a woman who has had a previous miscarriage has a 25% chance of having another (only a slightly elevated risk than for someone who has not had a previous miscarriage). A miscarriage means you may have difficulty sustaining a pregnancy, or your egg quality may be diminished.

Clomid can be very helpful if you are not ovulating, but will not affect your miscarriage risk. A fertility specialist can help you assess your best odds for achiving a healthy pregnancy.

Not sure if you are still

Not sure if you are still trying to get pregnant, but want to tell you that when I was 43 I took clomid and got pregnant on my first month, after trying for 2 years. Well of course I was devastated; then went to a fertility clinic and upped my does of clomid (which increases the number for eggs which increases your chance of getting pregnant) but they also increased my level of prometrium which is a natural progesterone, which can sometimes be low in older women trying to conceive. With the increased dose of clomid and increase in prometrium I conceived two months later and delivered a healthy baby boy November 2008. Do not give up. I went to many places that told me my only real chance is egg donor, but sometimes you have to go with your gut first and try something a little less expensive to start.
