Hi :)

I don't really know where to start, so please excuse me if this is a little muddled. My name is Rachel and I am an almost 40yr old mum to an almost 5yr old dd. Before DD, I  had an early miscarriage at 11 weeks. I was also diagnosed with endometriosis and was supposed to have it removed but I became pregnant and my symptoms dissapeared for a long time , but have recently returned  and I have painful period and ovulations.

We have now been ttc for over a year and in that year I have had one blighted ovum diagnosed at 12 weeks, a miscarriage at 6 weeks and 2 chemical pregnancies. The last one was a month ago.

During my pregnancy I had what I think were progesterone injections because I was bleeding, but those stopped at 12 weeks.

I have just recently moved doctor ( I am in Saudi btw) after my last doctor refused to do anything until I came to him with a bfp. My new doctor has done some blood tests (not sure which, I should have checked and got the results  will try and get hold of them later). He said that it is a blood clotting problem. He had already prescribed me with aspirin and folic acid. (I am taking pregnacare conception) and he has told me to start innohep (heparin) injections from 3 days before I am due on and cyclogest.

I have been reading online here and othere places and really think that would be too late to start. I am currently on day 11 of my cycle. It is my second month using a clear blue fertility monitor and today I got my first peak this month . I am wondering if I should start taking the injections and cyclogest now if I have any chance of a viable pregnancy? I am also wondering if ivf would help me? I really don't have a clue. It's never been suggested to me here, but I'm wondering if it is time to start looking into it as an option.

I really wan't sure where to post after my intro as it could be quite a few sections of the forum, so please feel free to point me in the right direction. Thanks for reading this and thank you also, to Nutmeg for directing me here xxx

OOps forgot to mention that I am from Manchester and if I have no luck here hope to go to Care in Manchester when I come back to the UK in the summer.
