No-one will help me

I am having a bit of a nightmare. I don't know what to do. I've had 3 mc in the last 2 years, 2 at 9 weeks (2nd had ERPC) and 1 at 6 weeks. Was supposed to be referred to rmc clinic but never came through.

I had a positive pregnancy test a few weeks ago plus sore breasts etc but test & symptoms have since faded. But nothing has happened, no miscarriage. I've seen 2 GPs, the first referred me for a routine ultrasound which will be at least a month away (in a non-obstetric, non-local unit) and the second tried to refer me to my local EPU but couldn't get past NHS protocol as they won't scan if you have a negative test. So she told me to come to another hospital which has a walk-in clinic and not mention the negative test. But of course they have tested too. They took me into a room and had a chat about how they couldn't scan me with a negative test. I am waiting to talk to a doctor. I know I am not pregnant any more but obviously something has gone wrong and if I'm carrying around 'retained products of conception' then it needs to be removed.

I'm also scared they will find out I already had a negative test before I came here.

I know there is nothing anyone can do but its such a horrible situation to be in and I am feeling very alone.

Hi, I am so sorry you are going through this. There isn't really anything you can do, just try to be kind to yourself. I hope the doctor will explain what is going on in a way that makes sense and gives you the answers you need. I totally understand the waiting is awful. Best wishes
