Dr. S just called me with the results of my endometrial function test, and they indicate a problem with my uterine lining, specifically "a significant degree of glandular developmental arrest" that could cause implantation problems and early pregnancy loss. After years of fruitless searching for a medical explanation for my miscarriages, I finally have an answer! Woohoo! I have been praying for an answer, and here it is. Thank God. Who would have thought that I would be so happy to find out that there is something wrong with me? I am, though; I am very happy.
Best of all, the problem is treatable. I will have to start progesterone supplements on Saturday and then follow up with another endometrial biopsy on March 6. The doctor will keep tailoring the dose of progesterone and following up with endometrial biopsies until my results of the endometrial function test are normal. I am hoping that it won't take more than one or two cycles.
I know that this very well could turn out not to be a panacea, and there's certainly no guarantee that it will prevent another miscarriage. After all, even if my endometrial problem can be fixed, I am almost 38 and could have poor egg quality.
But I now have just enough hope to try again.
