Our treatment has proven successful for patients with low AMH/low egg reserve, high BMI, over age 40+, and recurrent miscarriage. We have a high rate of success after failed IVF treatments (32.1%) and recurrent miscarriage (80.6%).
We gather and analyse extensive data on your health and fertility through blood tests, ultrasounds, fertility charting, & analysis of the male factor. We treat abnormalities & deficiencies with as gentle & non-invasive a treatment as possible, resulting in improved overall health & minimal side effects.
Recurrent miscarriage is when a couple have had three or more consecutive miscarriages. There are multiple factors that may cause miscarriage but often the cause of recurrent miscarriage is not identified.
At NeoFertility we look at up to 15 factors that can increase your risk of miscarriage. We have the ability to identify couples who are at risk of miscarriage even before the first miscarriage occurs. A review of our data from 2010 showed 80% of couples had successful pregnancies with a history of 3+ miscarriages. An abstract of our data is available here.
Couples with a history of ten previous miscarriages have had successful pregnancies with our treatment. Treatment with NeoFertility is safe and minimally invasive, with a low incidence of twins, premature births, or low birth weight. This is important to minimise health risks for babies conceived in our programme.
Our approach is to find the cause(s) of miscarriage and provide treatment before conceiving again. When the cycle is balanced and functioning optimally the couple are advised to conceive while taking the recommended treatment.
By charting your fertility cycle and getting timed blood tests, we identify biomarkers that increase your risk of miscarriage. These include abnormal bleeding patterns, short luteal phase, limited cervical mucus flow or if premenstrual symptoms persist for longer than four days.
In some cases we recommend surgical evaluation of the woman’s uterus (womb). Endometriosis can be a significant cause of recurrent miscarriage. In many cases this can be silent or symptom-free endometriosis.
We look at the possibility of a chronic low grade infection and treat this if appropriate. We send additional blood tests including for Natural killer cells, food antibodies, chromosomal or blood clotting abnormalities. Endorphin deficiency can also increase your risk of miscarriage. If we identify problems in any of these areas we commence treatment to correct the abnormalities.
Environmental and lifestyle factors are often very significant contributors to miscarriage. In particular excessive alcohol and cigarette smoking together with a busy stressful working environment or other lifestyle stress may increase the risk of having miscarriages.
Once the couple conceive we monitor pregnancy closely and provide pregnancy hormone support. Dietary changes initiated while trying to conceive are important to maintain throughout the pregnancy to decrease the risk of miscarriage.
If a couple miscarry on their first attempt with our treatment, it is medically worthwhile trying a second time. We often modify treatment further for subsequent attempts that improve the chances of success.
Treatment is not a guarantee of success, but we can significantly improve your chances with targeted medical and surgical intervention.
Important Note: While NeoFertility can treat almost any cause of subfertility, our treatment plan is not an option for men with zero sperm count and women who have established menopause/cycles have stopped, or if both tubes are blocked and are not amenable to surgical reconstruction.
