I was told that I produce eggs but am just producing bad eggs...

Hi Alex, I have a beautiful son who is 2 yrs old, we would dearly love to have another baby - I have had three miscarriages since last year. I have been seen Gyne doctor at public hospital who did blood tests and had ultrasound done but could find no reason. Was told that I produce eggs for a viable pregnancy but am just producing bad eggs does this mean that this would be an ongoing problem (I am 41) or did he mean it was just bad luck. I have asked my local GP if there is anything I can take or do to help my body but don`t seem to be getting any support be it information or otherwise. Sorry for the long windedness of this question but do you know if I can ask my Dr for anything.

Answer: Hi, Unfortunately due to your age the qualities of your eggs do lessen so you are at a higher risk of miscarriage. However, you still may be able to have a pregnancy that will continue as normal. Some women have had success with visiting herbalists or using a naturopath. Best wishes, Alex
