Worried for my sister Rss

My sister's just miscarried for the second time. I miscarried a year ago, as well. It took me a couple of rounds of IVF to finally get pregnant, this time. I'm really worried about her. Could this issue be genetic, ladies? Should I suggest her to go for IVF? I think it's the safest option for her.
Oh no, the poor thing! I'm glad she has someone experienced with her. There can be many reasons behind this. Miscarriages mostly happen due to chromosomal abnormalities. Not necessarily, but this could be the reason for your sister's MC. I would still advise her to see a doctor. Get a professional opinion. IVF makes sense, definitely. You had success with it, too. It definitely can be an option. There are other methods of assisted conception as well. For example, IUIs are also something that people normally opt for. Either way, an expert opinion is the main way to go about it. Good luck to her! Sending baby dust her way.
Hi, Natasha. Thank you so much for your input. This was actually very helpful. I'm a bit biased towards IVF. I think it's more of a reliable option than IUIs. I think IUIs end up being really expensive, even though the initial cost is less. However, the problem is that it's going to be hard to convince her! However, we've made some inroads with that! She saw her doctor, yesterday. Her doctor confirmed that she has a better chance of conceiving if she goes for IVF. That's definitely helpful. I think I'm going to give her a week to prepare herself, mentally. There are quite a few options, but I think I'll take her to the clinic where I went to. Her husband also thinks it's a good idea. So, fingers crossed, things work out for her!
Happy to be of help. It's good to see her not wasting any time. It really is key, you know. I had a great experience, myself, with assisted conception. It's the future! Remarkable technology, combined with great professionals, specifically at the clinic where I went to. So like most soccer moms, I consider myself to be really tech-friendly. Which is why I'm very reliant on the internet. So, when I found out that I was unable to conceive, naturally, I searched up the web for solutions. I was an expert by the time I consulted my doctor, haha. She suggested that it would be a very good decision to consider IUI. I don't give up easily, so it took me multiple rounds, but on the fifth attempt, we hit jackpot! We're due in April and really excited about it! Here's to your sister, and I hope she gets to experience this too! Good luck to her.
Thank you for your kind words, Rebeca. It really wasn't that hard, to be honest! You underestimate yourself, haha. I'm really happy that you've managed to convince your sister. You've done a great job. My prayers are with her. Good luck to her!

Hi. I'm sorry to read about your sister's strugglings. mc is too dreadful to face. it definitely leaves a huge scar. but I hope time will heal her wounds and soon she'll get her problem nailed and will proceed with treatments. I'm also sorry for the mc you've gone through. I truly don't think this is a genetic issue. So far it sounds to me like a coinsidence. I'm glad you've found your solution via IVF. As for your sister, I believe she needs more investigations done on the point. Help her to find the reputable fertility expert, who'll study her case well. He'll want her to pass more testings to state the reason which prevents her from healthy pregnancy. You're a kind lovely taking her needs at heart. She needs you. she's so lucky to have you by side. All the very best to you, if you need any info about repro centers, do let me know.
I think you should tell your sister to do the procedure. If the problem of miscarriage is constant, it requires a serious approach to treatment.
Hey, I hope you are well. I am glad that things eventually worked out for you. I myself had to research a lot before visiting any clinic. Previously I didn't have any prior knowledge. I was really confused and not sure. Due to this reason, things didn't really go in the right manner. All my treatments failed for us and I was honestly on the verge of quitting. However, then later met with a friend and she told me about the importance of a good clinic. So then afterward we researched a lot. I then found a clinic abroad. It was a huge step to take however, I did take it. The things went really well for us then. I am glad that we opted for them. It is after this that I realized the importance of a good clinic. Good luck to you.
I totally agree with you. It is very important that she visits a clinic that is reputable and knows how to carry the process. I learned this from my own personal experience. Things were not working out for us previously. The reason for that was lack of awareness. The clinic I was visiting wasn't doing a great job. However, I thought it was me due to which the process wasn't working. We then did take a break in between. After which I researched extensively. I didn't lose hope and looked at the options I had. We contacted a lot of them and it was just one that I was really attracted towards. We visited them and I was really impressed with the staff. Everything was properly managed. I am hoping that things work out. Hoping for the best.
Hard to suggest if it's genetic. Either way, given her problem it wouldn't be too bad to suggest IVF. I would still prefer that she gets a professional opinion. Fertility clinics have made life so easy! Good luck to your sister. I really hope things work out for her. I'll make sure to pray for her.
This thread has such good replies. Lovely post, Monika, thank you for this. You're doing the right thing by spreading this information. You're right, it's important to switch things around and look for alternate options. We need to make sure a second opinion is always on the cards. Keep up the good work! You're helping so many women.
It's great to see you care so much about her. She's in safe hands. You've got a lot of experience, too. I'm sure she's on the right track. I would suggest her to go down the same road you did. I'm sure you had your fertility checkup done from a clinic? That's the way to go, in my opinion! Good luck to her.
