Could any one please help me I have suffered 2 miscarriages one on 23 weeks and one on 26 weeks, the chromosomes were tested and nothing was wrong with it. I have 10 year old daughter and when I was pregnant with her everything eas normal up until I wanted to have another child. What can I do to find out so that it does not happen again and where do I go to from now??? I really need help and will do anything I am situated in South Africa if that is of any direction if I should go somewhere. The last one happened 5 months aga and I would like to try again but I cannot follow the same route, they have put in a stich with the last one but that also could stop the miscarriage process. Please Help!!!!!!!!

  • My wife had two miscarriages also. Her OB/GYN determined that the reason was probably her inability to produce enough hormones needed by the fetus to survive during the first 20 weeks of development (after 20 weeks, the fetus is capable of producing the hormones itself). He prescribed the hormones in a vaginal suppository for her to use during the first 20 weeks of pregnancy. We have had two healthy children since then and no more miscarriages. Ask your OB/GYN about this course of treatment before planning another pregnancy. I realize there are many causes for miscarriages, but it might be wise to discuss this treatment as a way to better your odds of a safe, normal pregnancy. Good luck.

  • get tested for antiphospholipid antibodies, namely: lupus anticoagulant and anticardiolipin antibodies. They attack the cellular membranes in our cells that are responsible for blood clotting, and therefore cause clots. Most people live with these antibodies their whole lives with no or little symptoms except for spontaneous abortions. In fact, a high number of people who miscarred were found later to have this clotting factor. women can normally carry babies to fullterm if they are on a low molecular weight heparin or daily asprin therapy.
