Dear Impatient & tired

The problem of recurrent pregnancy loss (miscarriage) needs to be further investigated. A simple starting point would be to have a few blood tests taken in particular for thyroid functions as well as an autoimmune screen and antiphospholipid profile. Should these tests be normal then I would suggest that you continue trying to conceive and as soon as a pregnancy has been confirmed, you should consider low dose aspirin therapy together possibly with progesterone support as well as low dose cortisone treatment. If despite this you have another miscarriage then the possibility of genetic factors may need to be investigated for.
