Brief Answer: Genetic screening of embryos Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query. I have read your query & I understand your concerns. Following is my reply: 1) Majority of your pregnancy losses are either abortions or preterm deliveries. Preterm delivery after cervial stitch removal was also ended in stillbirth. 2) These point to probability of some unknown translocation or chromosomal disorder which is repeating in each pregnancy and not letting babies survive. 3) I recommend you undergo ICSI along with chromosomal abnormality testing for embryos (PGD). These result in selection of healthy embryos to be transferred into uterus. I hope I answered your query. I will be available for any followup queries you have.
