2nd miscarriage(3 Posts)
A week ago I had a second miscarriage this year (had one in January too). Both pregnancies were planned as we married last year and wanted to start a family - we’re both 35.
The first miscarriage was a missed one, in that it wasn’t detected until our 12 week scan that we had in fact had one.
The one last week was a result of bleeding and scan the next morning wasn’t great news - I was 6 weeks gone.
I’m a healthy weight, i exercise and eat well and look after myself well. I was also taking my folic acid and vitamins.
We’re deeply upset by this latest outcome as it makes me incredibly anxious for our future and further pregnancies. I know it’s not impossible to have a successful pregnancy next time, but clearly I don’t hold a positive expectation as I thought we would be ok this time and it wasn’t.
Moving forward, I know the dr only initiates tests after a 3rd recurrent miscarriage and I genuinely feel I can’t go through this again. I know there are fertility clinics out there on a private basis, but do they actually assist in this regard or is it purely for those who suffer problems actually conceiving rather than carrying?
Has anyone else taken this step after 2 miscarriages?
Hi. Sorry for the tough time you've had.
Yes there are such clinics. You don't need to have problems conceiving. They all vary in prices and approaches.

The Coventry clinic is research based nhs run and considerably cheaper than the other two. I'd be inclined to start there. X
I have suffered multiple miscarriages. We went private and paid a fortune only to be told they could find no reason. I know it is hard but I would think about giving it one more chance before paying. It can go in to the £££s. Perhaps take a month to recover physically and emotionally and the decide.
