I'm so sorry for your loss, Christa. I had some fertility testing before finally getting pg with my DD. However, mine was based on not being able to conceive. I know low progesterone is a common cause of miscarriage, so it could be as simple as taking progesterone supplements when you get a BFP. I know age can play a factor too though. They will likely start out just doing a bunch of blood work and go from there. And when you get a BFP they will likely monitor you very closely, especially during the first tri. KUP, please.
Christa, I am so sorry. I don't have any advice on how to proceed regarding fertility treatment options, but I just wanted to send you a hug. I too have lost two pregnancies and it is even harder the second time. I am really glad you are looking ahead to the future and I hope/pray that you have lots of luck with whatever avenue you and your DH decide to pursue. Keep thinking positively. *hugs*
