Avoiding a Third Miscarriage

Avoiding a Third Miscarriage

I have had two miscarriages, one at 14 weeks and another one at seven weeks. Both times, there was no indication something was wrong -- I went in for an appointment and there was no heartbeat. Is there anything I can do at this point to try to make sure that this doesn't happen again? Heather

It is important for you to complete an evaluation for recurrent pregnancy loss. This should include evaluation for age-related infertility issues, hormonal abnormalities, uterine malformations, chromosomal abnormalities, immune problems, infection and blood-clotting abnormalities that predispose to clots. A thorough medical history, review of your family history, and physical exam are necessary to determine which tests are most likely to reveal the cause of your problem.

Much of this testing is expensive. Testing is not always covered by your insurance company, so it is important to visit with a physician who has expertise in this area to help you best individualize your care plan.
