HI,just wanted to tell my story and give you hope and some explanation what 's happening in 95% of cases .I have done my reaserch AND Yes 95% of misc is preventable ,that is proved .I had 2 mis in a row and have been told by my gp ,unlucky ,if you have 3 or 4 mayby we will look into this. So hartless.Never heard anything so stupid in my life ,I am Polish and in my country they do all the tests after 1 lose,am not saying that my home country is great but in that case they really value life of the baby.Anyway I went to private surgery in London (polish one but it's not only for polish people)The doctor was brilliant ,after tests done in a day I foud out that my blood is to thick and also I have to many antybodies which attack my baby.If I lisened to my gp i would never have children because I would lose baby after baby and I am 37 .All i needed was some medication ,first I had to take prenisolone for a month and than when got pregnant cyclogest for 6 months (that was for these antybodies) and baby aspiryn (from the begining of the pregnancy for my blood)..At the moment i am 30 weeks pregnant and with God help my son will be born in 9 weeks.By the way tablets cost about £30 a month so its nothing.I still go to that private surgery every 5 weeks just to check if everything is ok.My husband is English and he is really thankful for everything that lady doctor done for us.Few months ago I saw program on this morning about miscar and specialist said exactly the same thing 95%is preventable all you need is just to be checked what is wrong with your body and treated.If anybody is interested the name of surgery :green surgery in Greenwich .Good luck everybody, do not give up.

I understand what you are going through, I've had 2 missed miscarriages that have both followed the same pattern. The hospital referred me to a specialist as I had had 2 unusual miscarriages. The specialist was horrible, told me my doc shouldn't have referred me 3 times & I explained each time that it was the hospital not my doctor, then all she talked about was how much these tests cost & that they have guidelines for a reason. I managed to get her to agree to blood tests but didn't get any more.
It's such a horrible thing to go through & to be told you have to go through it again before any tests is awful. I am currently 6 wks pregnant again, had a scan this morning & saw my baby's heartbeat. Fingers crossed this one sticks.
You wont get any tests apart from bloods unless you go private but they are expensive. I know it's hard but you need to stay as stress free as possible as stress in itself can cause miscarriage.
As for the blood clotting thing, my husbands cousin had 3 miscarriages & they found her blood was clotting, they told her to take baby aspirin every day & now she has 2 little girls. Ask your doctor for advice on this.
You can drive yourself mad thinking about why & what if's but you just need to get over your loss & let your body recover. When you are ready just try to stay as relaxed & stress free as possible to give your baby the best chance you can of survival.
Take care xx
