has anyone been to the reaccurant miscarriage clinic?
What do they advise and what do they test for? How long is the process normally?
Also how long did everyone wait after ectopic pregnancy to start trying to conceive again? ( when's safe?)
I've had two misscarriages and one ectopic and left tube removed. Can anyone offer any advice at all?

We have been referred to the recurrent miscarriage clinic after our 3rd MMC last Wednesday. Been advised to not try to get pregnant whilst this is taking place, preferably to have had a period before hand. Yet to get our appointment but I've been told it involves blood tests for various things, possible scans of uterus etc, hormone tests etc then once they have all the results you go back to discuss their findings. No idea how long the process is. Have not had an ectopic pregnancy so not certain on how long you should wait before trying again. X

I have had both an ectopic (left tube removed) and recurrent miscarriages.
Firstly the ectopic - did they try and treat you with methotrexate before removing your tube? If so it's a minimum 12 week wait before ttc and that's really important! MTX is basically a cancer drug and removes folic acid so is really dangerous to a developing baby if you get pregnant too soon. If you just had the surgery the recommended wait time is still 12 weeks to enable the body to heal itself
So the recurrent miscarriage clinic - they'll do blood tests for thyroid problems and blood clotting factors and that's pretty much it - I found it a bit pointless - no scans of uterus and no testing of partners sperm. If they don't find anything you are packed off with a good luck and ring us when you get a positive pregnancy test for a scan at 6 weeks.

I’ve had 3 miscarriages in sucession. We were referred in early January and were seen last week initially by a nurse practitioner. She did an internal scan to xheck for obvious problems and took lots of coagulation related blood tests. We’ve been lucky enough to get a consultant appointment next week as we are having ivf transfer the week after. So far they’ve offered reassurance scans at 6,8 and 10 weeks. We’ll see what the consultant adds but so far all I imagine is blood thinners - I don’t have sticky blood.
