Dear Nickname 1

A blood clot in the thigh is possibly a deep vein thrombosis. There is an association between deep vein thrombosis and recurrent miscarriages. The condition that would cause both is called Antiphospholipid syndrome. There are blood tests available to see if your friend has this condition. Your friend should please consult her gynaecologist to assess if she has this condition or not.
