Repeated miscarriage - what next?

I've got an appointment next week at EPAU for a pg test and checkup after beginning to miscarry on Thursday at 6 weeks.

I've had an ectopic, then my ds (but lost his twin), then a mmc (prob. blighted ovum, found at my 12 week scan), and now 2 early mcs (5 and 6 weeks).

Can anything be done to try and get to the bottom of it? The appoinment seems a good time to try and get things moving if there is.

Hi Funtime there are tests that can be carried out to find out the cause of the miscarriages it also depends on your hospital protocols where mine in WEST SUSSEX after 2 miscarriages thats when they start testing you. this is talking from experience after my miscarriages i was heart broken and unconsolable on a lighter note i was eventually blessed with a baby boy (7 months) ask your GP or midwife she should know good luck

When i said midwife i didnt mean to be insensitive but he/she will definately know or even put you through to an obs and gynae consultant frankly speaking via GP will seem like forever

Thanks, that's what I'm hoping chubbasmum, that I won't have to go back to my GP, pg/fertility isn't her area. She's a bit of a 'but you've got a child, what's the fuss, miscarriages are very common you know' sort of GP and the wait to see the other one is ludicrous.
