    Default 2nd misscarriage...options for testing?

    Hi Ladies,

    I am new to this forum and have just recently had my second misscarriage in 4 months I was only roughly 4.5 weeks pregnant with both and I am reading everywhere that nothing can be done until you have had 3 miscarriages.

    I really don't want to risk going through this again and would love to hear other ladies stories and experiences.

    Where can I go to get tests and what type of tests? Is it just a local GP or can I see a specialist?

    Maybe book in to see a gyno/obyn, I have had 2 misscarriages and I have also had some problems during my pregnancies so I have been tested for blood clotting disorders, auto immune disease etc.,, which is what they will generally test for if you have recurrent misscarriage

    So sorry for your loss. I had two miscarriages and I know how hard it can be. Big hugs!

    I went and saw a private fertility specialist and he ran a whole heap
    Of tests. It was quite expensive. I ended up going on
    Progesterone, vitamin d and iron. I am now 25 weeks pregnant and all is going well this time.
