#misCOURAGE story, 21/04/2017, by Morgan
Me and my husband were married for almost 3 years before I went to the doctor to find out if something was wrong. We weren't trying but we were not using protection and did want a baby.
I found out that I have slightly high androgen levels and pcos. Even though I have regular periods and I am young and healthy and every doctor thinks I should have no trouble having kids, the pcos and slightly high androgen obviously was enough to stop conception, even though doctors couldn't explain why this was happening or why I still had regular periods despite the pcos.
Anyway, I got pregnant in July of 2016 and had a missed miscarriage at about 7 weeks.
In October 2016 I had a miscarriage at home induced by medicine and it was the most pain I've ever felt.
In November or December of 2016 I got pregnant again, and in January I had another missed miscarriage. I had a d&c this time and they found that the baby had triploidy.
I am obviously hurt emotionally and it was physically exhausting as well, but I really mostly wonder why miscarriage is not spoken about very much, especially with how common it is.
I also wish that we had the science and technology to get more answers.
The only answers I can get is that both times it was a random fluke thing and they couldn't have done anything about it. Just chromosomal abnormalities and they don't know why and the fact that it happened to me twice in a row is just pure coincidence...
I guess that's possible but I believe we will have more answers or at least more acknowledgement and awareness, in the future, hopefully...that's why I'm sharing my #misCOURAGE story.
