Hello there
Just wondering if anyone can offer hope? I have had 4 losses, 2 before and 2 after my healthy boy. Desperate to give him a sibling. I've had most NHS tests, nothing found.
Would appreciate any thoughts
Thanks

I'm sorry for your losses Shaboolythanks
I had DS (took ages to conceive, suspected blighted ovum but it turned out OK), then 3 mc. All my tests were normal. A Gynae suggested as I have PCOS I try metformin. I lost a little weight got a regular cycle, took metformin to 12 weeks and now have a second DS. No one ever explained why I lost the babies, I've had some counselling and it helped me cope with not having answers.

There is hope. I had DS after 3 recurrent losses despite being a good many years older (wasn't always easy for me to conceive).

I am now too old to have any more children and do feel guilty that DS will be an only child. The tests showed nothing untoward - it was just bad luck. That's really hard to deal with even now. But I am glad I didn't give up trying.

I'd one dc, four mcs, and then finally one more dc. Private testing led to treatment with steroids.
I thought the game was up after four, and I'm glad to be able to say there is still hope.
