Since rheumatoid arthritis is an immune disease it could be related to your chemical pregnancies. Have you gotten any recurrent pregnancy loss testing done? Immune disease likely played a factor in my chemicals and miscarriages. When I received immune treatment protocol I finally got my success.

TTC since I was 28; Started fertility treatments at 35.

Dx: Male factor, Hashimotos, fibroids

April 2011-13 eggs retrieved: all dead except 1 immature egg that was ICSI'd; no embryos to transfer

Switched from Calgary RFP to VFC

IVF#2: November 2012, donor egg cycle- chemical pregnancy

FET#1: Feb 2013- m/c @ 6 weeks
