Ask a Gynaecologist and Get Answers to Your OB/GYN Questions ASAP
Hello. No, apart from a day 21 progesterone test last year when I was beginning to worry about not getting pregnant (I had a 'very good' result, according to doc, at the time). I should point out that I am in the UK where we don't routinely get to see an ob-gyn unless there is thought to be a problem - and the docs won't automatically check anything as a result of a single miscarriage. However I am willing to go private and pay for any tests that might be useful. I don't have PCOS, fibroids or underactive thyroid.
I have never missed a period but my cycle does vary in length a little - can be between 26 and 31 days.
Thanks Dr Owen. Yes, I'm hoping this was just bad luck and that if we make a more committed effort to conceive, it will be ok next time. Actually can I just ask one more thing - does the fact that my uterus is still holding onto the pregnancy suggest that I still have ok levels of progesterone, oestrogen etc for maintaining a pregnancy? Would I have miscarried earlier if I had this sort of problem, do you think? I'll ask my doctor about those tests.
