    Genetic Issues?

    Is there a thread or website that explains the possible genetic issues involved with IF? I presume they are tested differently than immune issues since there is a separate board?

    red,
    yes they would be tested differently than immune issues. it is another common cause of repeat miscarriages that many people do not even consider.
    just to name one there is something called a balanced translocation that can cause early m/cs due to a genetic defect in the growing embryo but most people unless they had karyotyping done would not know that they had this balanced translocation.
    it is something when you reach a certain point in ttc that you should rule out. i would encourage you if you had not done so to ask your re about doing an appointment with a clinical geneticist near you (may also be called medical geneticist) or a genetic ocunselor and having karyotyping done on both you and your dh.
    good luck, best wishes and if you have any more questions please feel free to ask
