Kristen, Repeated Miscarriages
Kristen, age 34, had one child who was 1 ½ years old. She was having difficult conceiving another child. She had had 4 miscarriages, which usually occurred before the 10th week of pregnancy. She had tried using clomid and tried on her own, but was unsuccessful in conceiving. One of her ANAs (clotting ability) was suspicious but inconclusive, for which her gynecologist recommended taking aspirin during the next pregnancy. Kristen had fairly regular cycles and normal ovulatory cervical fluid, but at times suffered from menstrual cramps. She was still nursing her first child. Her emotional outlook was moody; she reported often feeling sad and lonely, struggled with the fertility issues, and suffered from insomnia.
