my gp is going to run a few blood tests on me full blood count, tests for diabetes thyroid and lupus
i noticed she ticked a box for clotting too.

does that sound pretty comprehensive?
or should i ask for anything else ?

ive basically had twin pg that resulted in one miscarraige and one neonatel death
followed by a mmc of a singleton

i have a healthy and well, as far as i know and pray, dd who is 5
im 35

i had the last loss in aug, and ive only just stopped bleeding two days ago

the hospital didnt seem interested in testing me, because they think its bad luck, its like searching for a needle in a haystack
and they only class it as two losses, as first set was twins

so is what the gp is doing enough as a starting point, she seems very suppportive and helpful so is there anything else i can ask her to test me for?

I think that sounds pretty comprehensive from the gp. Good luck with it all x

The guidelines from the RCOG are here:

Sounds like you've had a terrible time. Good luck with the investigations and TTC.

thanks for posting that link Barlet just what I am looking for. On way to EPAU soon with third suspected MC. Don't want fobbing off on testing.

Yeah sounds good that they are testing you. I've also had 2 and they say its just bad luck. Doesn't feel like it though does it? I'm convinced there's a reason and there's something wrong with me. Hope tests go well op.
