What Went Wrong and What Next?

It’s been almost two months since our miscarriage, and today we met with our fertility doctor to talk about what went wrong with our pregnancy and possible paths forward. And as much as I wish it wasn’t true – there are no answers for us. The doctors don’t know why the pregnancy didn’t work, even though the embryo clearly implanted and all of the chromosome tests came back normal. It’s possible that there were still genetic abnormalities with the embryo (PGS has an approximate accuracy of 98%), that the hormone levels were off, or maybe (just my own thought) something went wrong mechanically somewhere between the freeze and de-thaw. We just don’t know, and at this point, there are no definitive answers. Our doctor believes that the best thing to do is to try again. And that is where I am at mentally. I’m trying to decide if I want to do this again – to trust in a reproductive technology that has left us frustrated, emotionally drained, and doubtful. I’m struggling with knowing when enough is enough and whether or not we should continue . . .
