    I am 29 years old and I had 2 chemical pregnancies 2 months apart of each other. Should I be concerned or should I continue to try for a third?

    Brief history on me: I opted for an abortion 7 yrs ago at 10 wks. I did not experience any problems with that pregnancy. I was just too young and it was an unwanted pregnancy. The pregnancy was ended by a vacuum aspiration. No complications afterwards and I returned to my normal menstrual cycle (7 days long) within 4 weeks of the procedure.

    Now I decided to have a child and I have been trying to conceive for 4 months. The 2nd and 4th month I had a chemical pregnancy. My normal menstrual cycle is 28 days. When I got pregnant during the 2nd and 4th month of TTC, both times I ovulated on CD15. On 15 DPO both pregnancies ended (got menstrual bleeding). I tested positive for hcg on DPO 13 for both pregnancies, but on DPO 15, both pregnancies end and I no longer test positive.

    What are some possible causes for this? Is this most likely a chromosonal abnormality or something else such as: hormonal imbalance, thin uterine lining, abnormality with the uterus?

    Has anyone experienced recurrent chemical pregnancies? Is it still possible to have a full term pregnancy without any medical intervention?

    TIA for your feedback!

    Now that I've gone through a miscarriage, I would say that it's probably better not to know about the chemical pregnancies. I think a lot of women have them and never know. But if you're testing so early, you're finding out about them, but you may not be having them any more often than other women. As for advice, you could get tested for low progesterone or other hormonal imbalances. I'm sorry for your losses! It's really hard.

    Chemical pregnancy is actually a very early miscarriage, which takes place before anything can be seen on an ultrasound scan – usually around the fifth week that you are pregnant. It means that a sperm has fertilised your egg, but later on, the egg fails to survive.

    Hi, dear! I’m sorry for your loses.:( I have read that a chemical preg can cause delayed ovulation. I researched this when I noticed that I was going to OV on my regular cycle day, and my opks where coming up negative when they would usually be positive.

    But this is only one side of the coin. I’m sure this is not the trouble for you as you achieve a pregnancy but your organism cannot keep it.. I think you should look for the answers via proper testing suggested by your Gyn. But, frankly speaking, I wouldn’t connect it much with your previous abortion. It looks like you’re undergoing a different thing than it. You should consult a specialist, hun.

    Baby dust to you and crossing everything for you...

    In case of recurrent pregnancy loss, doc might recommend doing karyotyping or pgs ngs testing
