Can It Be Genetic?

It's widly "known" that losses are not genetic. Doctors say there is no way that the trait can be passed down from either parent. Yet, when you ask the board if any of their immediate family members have had a loss, more say yes than no.


Interestingly, though, more say no than yes when it comes to infertility (secondary or initially) with a good chunk unsure.


The top Google searches when you type in "Are miscarriages...." pops up with genetic and hereditary. That's not a coincidence.



Once you've had a loss, you know how much it's out there, like a new world has been exposed. But why does it seem to pop up a lot in your own family?

Searching online and talking to doctors seem to bring up nothing. They'll say it's a fluke, a genetic abnormality (of your LO, not you) or that it's just a coincidence. There seem to have been no true studies into why they seem prevalent in families.

Perhaps one day,family losses will be a factor into your monitoring during your own pregnancy. Maybe it will help to boost your check-ins or ultrasounds or even just your betas.

Until then, we'll keep on keepin on.

  2. I wanted to thank you Eka for this wonderful you have done in my marital life. After years of trying to conceive and a failed IVF and a failed FET, I ordered your Pregnancy spell. According to my infertility doctor it was "very unlikely" that I could be pregnant with my own eggs. But here I am, pregnant for the first time in life. I got pregnant naturally just 2 months after my failed FET and after following your instructions. I am now 7 month pregnant. I am spreading this miracle story to whomever I meet and who suffers from infertility. Contact Eka on (dreka14demons@gmail.com) Kind regards and thank you,
