    Okay, the blood tests I am having this month are supposed to include a test for blood clotting disorders... I guess I'll wait and see what the tests uncover.

    Do some people just take baby aspirin anyway as a 'just in case' measure even if their Doctor hasn't prescribed it?

    I'm sorry for your loss. I've lost 2 babies to miscarriage and have been blessed with a healthy baby despite being sent home at 6 weeks with a '95%.chance' I'd lost her too. I also had PND for 18 months despite being healthy athroughout riot to pregnancy.

    I went to different doctors looking for answers, had thousands of dollars worth of scans and tests to figure out what was wrong with me. I finally found Dr Greg Emerson in Brisbane who specialises in finding the biochemical cause to issues like this rather than dismissing me, saying I was just 'degenerating' or treating symptoms with drugs and never finding a cause.

    Dr Emerson found I had low zinc, low B6, critically low iodine and high copper. This explained everything and is strongly linked to miscarriage, depression and the fatigue I'd had so long. I was prescribed a tailored compounded vitamin for day and night and take nascent iodine drops. I went through a detox period and am finally feeling 100% better. I haven't TTC since but I feel positive I'm in a good position to do so.

    Miscarriage is often due to factors out of our control but if you feel like there is something not quite right I urge you to keep looking for answers. I wish you the best.

    Thanks for your reply MMelissa - I'm sorry for the loss of your little ones too.

    I replied to another thread you had posted in and was wondering what costs were involved in seeing Dr Emerson? Please PM me if you would prefer to share these details more privately. I just think he sounds right up my ally!

    I have experienced exhaustion for some time now too. So far it has been attributed to my very low iron levels - levels that have only become worse after 2 natural miscarriages

    I think I paid around $350 for the 1.5 hours but after seeing him twice (2nd time was a short consult to follow up) I haven't been to a doctor or been unwell since. For me, it was totally worth that investment. I was at the doctors way too often beforehand.
