Infertility

Miscarriage

08/22/2008

Question:

I misscarried 6 months ago at 5 weeks. Even though my periods are normal, is it possible that I may not be ovalating or that my tubes might be blocked. I am trying to conceive though I have two children already. Thank you

Answer:

If your periods are regular, and you have conceived on your own, it is probable that you are ovulating regularly.  Likewise, if you are able to conceive, it would indicate that at least one, if not both, of your tubes are open.  If this is your first pregnancy loss, you should have an excellent chance for successful pregnancy in the future.
