Sorry to hear about your miscarriage. The pathology shows placental tissue from the first trimester I.e. confirms a first trimester miscarriage. Nothing malignant or otherwise worrying on it.

Thanks for replying. So you know what it means by the last bit about blood clots? They've said to do tests for APS which is a blood clotting disorder I believe. Wondering if the blood clots mentioned there are the result of the miscarriage or cause?

Had a quick google of the terms they used for the micro section, it looks like its microscopic changes in the placenta that occurs in first trimester miscarriage, it doesn't look like it's anything to worry about. The diagnosis being products of conception suggests they don't think there is anything abnormal.

@Riggles78 thanks for that. Still waiting for the cytology which I think is why it says no foetal tissue. I think that was sent somewhere else and not come back. It's horrible thinking your body might might have hurt a healthy baby

Hi, I've had the aps test. Is just a blood test to see if you're positive for a few things. I think 3... I had the lupus anti coagulant test and came back positive. It's a common cause of recurrent miscarriage and if you're positive for it you'll be referred for preconception counseling. You'll also likely go on clexane injections when you're pregnant and will be obstetrician led rather than midwife led, although you'll still see a midwife for some of the basic bits. They just don't call the shots smile
