My husband, a cancer survivor (specifically leukemia) and I got pregnant 2x's both = in miscarriage. My tests = normal. Could the preserved semen be the cause because of the cancer?

First of all, let me share

First of all, let me share with you a wonderful organization that may be helpful to you. Fertile Hope is a national LIVESTRONG initiative dedicated to providing reproductive information, support and hope to cancer patients and survivors whose medical treatments present the risk of infertility.

They provide wonderful resources at 866.965.7205 or at their website

To answer your question - research does not show that frozen sperm show a higher rate of miscarriage than "traditional" sperm. If you have not considered ICSI with your IVF, or even PGD, it may be the next step to consider. I would probably not move forward with another assisted cycle without sitting down and talking about the options with your physician.
