    Default Repeat miscarriages

    In brief, my sister has been having ttc issues for over two yrs now. She has a five yr old son. She and BIL have been trying for iver two yrs. It took a ling time to conceive but they did, then she miscarried around 6 wks. It took anither yr to get preg again. Once again, she found out at first scan that she miscarried. My stepfather is a radiologist and he saw the scan. He never elaborated but he said it "didnt even look normal". She and BIL have been tested. No fertility or other health issues. She fell oreg w son within one month of going off birth control so she tried bc agaib to help regulate her but it still took forever to get preg. She is now pregnant again- six months ish since last miscarriage and is now spotting again. She is around 6 wks again and going ti get a scan friday. When she had met w the fertility dr, they told her she had secondary infertility- when a couple has a kid but then has trouble conceiving again. She has considered clomid etc but has been afraid of having multiples. I dont know much about clomid. I know it helps u increase ur chances of getting pregnant but once pregnant, does it help u retain the oregnancy or increase the chance of thr baby developing right etc? Sucks it takes her forever not just to,conceive but its like something keeps going wrong in the pregnancies at the same time- 6-7 wks. Any thoughts? Anyone have any experience w this?

    She may have a clotting disorder, which means the blood that is clotting and starving the baby of oxygen and everything else.

    I've had multiple M/C and my doc has me on 100mg aspirin, 1 a day until when ever he says stop. The aspirin not only helped thicken my lining but also stop clotting in my blood.

    Aspirin is cheap and simple maybe give it a whirl
