    Can you tell me does all the initial testing get done via my gp? Or do I need to go and see a reproductive specialist?
    All my testing was referred by my GP.

    If there is a way I can send this away to be tested somehow. I just don't know how I would go about this.
    My obstetrician sent away my 9 week old foetus for testing during my D&C. I'm not sure how you would go about it for a miscarriage though ..

I already knew I had PCOS and an autopsy from our stillborn daughter came back saying I had blood clots on the placenta. After the tests I was told I have a blood clotting disorder which is why I keep losing babies. It really does give me some relief to have an answer and I am now on asprin and will have to have clexane injections next pregnancy. On the other hand it makes me angry that I had to wait until I'd suffered this heartache 3 times before this was figured it out I cant help thinking If they had figured this out after my stilborn then I could potentially have a baby in my arms right now.... it really is a joke. I am so so sorry you are going through this. Sending you the biggest of hugs xx
    I am so so sincerely sorry for your loss ❤️

    Just thought I'd update that my hospital doctor has agreed to send my products away for karyotyping. They said they don't normally do it after only 2 mc, but they remembered me from last time & were a little shocked to see me back so soon

    Sorry to hear about your losses, that is awful. It sucks they will not test unless you have to go through this again. I would see your GP for a second opinion, surely a blood test is not too much to ask.
    I have had 2 losses, one before my son 2.5 yrs ago, and one recently. First was from IVF cycle, 2nd from frozen cycle. Following the latest one, I have had a stack of bloods taken (listed in posts above) and an endometrial biopsy at 21dpo. Still waiting for the results of these, however my doctor also thinks I may have been unlucky. Another doctor described the miscarriage as a 'dodgy embryo' which doesn't give me much hope for the remainder of our frozen cycles.
    I am anxious about trying again as well, and will wait to see what the results are of the tests.
    Good luck to you, take all the time you need to recover xx

    I had a mmc at 10 weeks earlier this year, I was under the care of an OB at that stage, and even though it was my first mc, I had a D&C with testing.
    Im not sure if its just because we got it done through the private system, but its definitely possible.
    Is it worth pushing for the testing?
    Im so sorry so many of us, and you OP, have been through this.

    Thanks ladies.
    It's ok, I understand now why they only test after 3. It's a numbers game. Unfortunately if they tested everyone after 1 or 2 mcs, then they would capture too many people & the Australian government isn't going to fork out that kind of money sadly.

    I'm letting it all go & moving on. DH is keen to give it another red hot go & I'm ovulating again already so we have decided to carry on from where we left off! Here's hoping for third time lucky! But one thing I know as soon as I get a positive hpt this time, I'll be off to my Dr asking for a test of my progesterone levels in case it's low & the reason for my mcs. I asked last pregnancy & she said there was no point so it will be interesting to see what she says next time round!

    I do wonder though with the numbers and the cost that if it was included in the pre-pregnancy tests whether they would then save money on hospital admissions, counselling sessions, appts with miscarriage clinics, performing d and c operations, lost taxes from women who have to put off going back to work or lost production from sick leave.

    Definitely this!! ^^^

    I got the results back from my last missed miscarriage four weeks ago. Baby had trisomy 21 and there were clotting issues due to my being positive to MTHFR

    Hi Ladies,

    Looks like I'm having MC#3 this year. heartbroken but relieved that it's happened quickly (I started bleeding today after I was told last week my levels weren't rising quickly enough at 5w5d). I'm 6w4d today but sac was measuring "less than 5 weeks" he said.

    Anyway, I'm feeling weird at how relieved I am, like I'm a little bit closer to getting some answers. Thanks for all your replies and I'm going to write down all the things I need to make sure I get tested for.

    Wine time
