thrombophilia and IVF

Postby ksaylors » Thu Jul 28, 2005 4:47 am

I have had 3 miscarriages and have been diagnosed with thrombophilia. My husband and I are considering gestational surrogacy. I was wondering if anyone with thrombophilia has had ivf? I am worried about clotting while using the stimulation medication (my dr. thinks I had a PE with the last miscarriage). Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Thank everyone for the kind words. I am interested in learning more about gestational surrogacy. We are currently working with an agency to do a match for us. I am nervous about it, but this is the happiest I've seen my hubby in a while, so I am hoping for the best!
