Hi Alex,

I guess they will run test and tell us why but this is were woman go insaine, I`m lucky I look at this in a very differnent way to alot of people. can ou help?

Answer: Hi, You need to be referred to a specialist gynaecologist. They will be able to run some blood tests to check your hormone and antibody levels and perhaps be able to offer a reason for the miscarriages. Hopefully there will be some treatment available so that you can have a viable pregnancy in the near future. Best wishes, Alex
