"I have had 3 miscarriages, in a row, in this last year. I am 34 years old and have no children. I have had all possible blood work done showing that everything "appears" normal. I have been referred to a new doctor who I have yet to even get an appointment with, but I need a fresh perspective on what is going on. I am just wondering: should I have all my blood work ran again, what other possibilities should I discuss with him, etc? Thank you!"
First let me say how sorry I am that you are going through such a terrible time. Reading this is like reading my own history: I, too, had three consecutive m/c within a year’s time, and the doctors I saw couldn’t find anything wrong either. I did finally change doctors, to a reproductive endocrinologist. She did have a different approach and did more investigative lab work.
After three miscarriages, you, unfortunately, fall into a whole new category, and there will be tests that can be run for very rare circumstances that could be causing these miscarriages. For me, it turned out I had antiphospholipid syndrome (a blood clotting disorder, and I had clots forming in the umbilical cord during my pregnancies). So, at this point a reproductive endocrinologist would be the right specialist to see. Get all your records from your previous docs, and have them all sent to your new RE prior to your visit so they have a chance to review everything before your appointment. And it is completely reasonable to interview more than one RE. You may meet one you like right away, or you may need to go to a few different ones to find the doctor with whom you feel the most comfortable. Once you find an RE you like, then talk about what tests should be re done, and which new ones could be run now that you’ve had three miscarriages.
I sincerely hope you are able to find a cause, and that there is a treatment that will allow you to have a successful pregnancy.
