Dr Eric Daiter has served Monmouth and Middlesex Counties of New Jersey as an infertility expert for the past 20 years. Dr. Daiter is happy to offer second opinions (at the office or over the telephone) or new patient appointments. It is easy, just call us at 908 226 0250 to set up an appointment (leave a message with your name and number if we are unable to get to the phone and someone will call you back).
"I always try to be available for my patients since I do understand the pain and frustration associated with fertility problems or endometriosis."
"I understand that the economy is very tough and insurance companies do not cover a lot of the services that might help you. I always try to minimize your out of pocket cost while encouraging the most successful and effective treatments available."
Recurrent Pregnancy Loss: clinical evaluation
An evaluation for known causes of recurrent pregnancy loss is
usually initiated after 2 or 3 consecutive pregnancy losses. The
tremendous emotional impact of each loss may encourage an evaluation
sooner than later. A full evaluation includes
demonstration of a normally shaped uterine cavity (by either
hysterosalpingogram or hysteroscopy)
evaluation for a hormonal deficiency in progesterone production
(by either endometrial biopsy or bloodwork)
analysis of both the maternal and paternal chromosomes (by
laboratory testing for immunologic causes of pregnancy loss
taking a history for maternal disease states, environmental
or other toxin exposure
If a full evaluation is completed on couples with either 2 or
3 consecutive losses there will still be about 50% (1 of 2) of
couples with "unexplained" recurrent pregnancy loss.
That is, roughly half of couples seem to have a reason for recurrent
loss that is beyond modern medicine's ability to diagnose this
cause. This can be frustrating for both the couple and the physician.
In this situation, the couple will at least know that potentially
repairable pathology has been ruled out. The couple can then elect
to enroll in experimental protocols designed to further our knowledge
of recurrent pregnancy loss. In my experience, these experimental
treatments often result in reproductive success despite limited
knowledge on why they work.
