Amy Trautmann shares her story of endometriosis and miscarriage. We discuss triggers, talking about these experiences, & secondary infertility.
In episode #122, Amy shares her personal story of loss. She has endometriosis, and conceived her son via IVF in 2017. When she and her husband decided to conceive a sibling for their son, they experienced recurrent loss in the form of non-viable embryos and repeated implantation failure (RIF).
When she did become pregnant again, Amy experienced bleeding and found out she had a subchorionic hematoma. The bleeding worsened, and she was eventually put on a modified bed rest. At 12 weeks gestation, Amy began having contractions and dilating. There was a placental abruption, and her baby’s heartbeat stopped.
We discuss triggers for women going through loss, how to talk about these experiences, and the grief associated with secondary infertility. Losses of all kinds are difficult and painful.
Topics Discussed: endometriosis, diminished ovarian reserve, AMH levels, in vitro fertilization (IVF), failed embryo transfer, natural miscarriage, repeated implantation failure (RIF), laproscopy, excision of endometriosis, subchorionic hematoma (SCH), bed rest, placental abruption, secondary infertility
