Since last year I have had 3 miscarriages while trying for bub number 2

Hi Alex, my name is Julie
Since last year I have had 3 miscarriages while trying for bub No 2 I have a two yr old who has D/S I have been seen by Gynae at hosp. who had blood tests and an ultrasound which showed nothing. It was explained to me that I produce eggs for viable pregnancy but am just producing bad eggs I suppose he meant I was just unlucky that the egg that was fertilised each was bad, I have seen two doctors since (my own GP and a family planning Dr) to try to find out if this was likely to keep happening or not, my GP said that hopefully she would be able to tell me I was pregnant soon, the family planning DR basically tried to tell me I was depressed which I and my family know I am not but I need answers as I am 41 yrs and am not getting younger. I am at wits end as I don`t know where else to turn as cannot afford private Gynae to help. Sorry for being long winded about this question can you help me?

Answer: Hi Julie, Unfortunately at 41 there are a greater number of poor quality eggs in your ovaries as your fertility starts to decline. However, there is still a good chance that you could fall pregnant with a viable pregnancy. So it may just be a case of wait and see. I know that it is really difficult experiencing so much heartache and disappointment but you may get some joy soon. Best wishes, Alex
