Multiple Miscarriage - Fertility Testing Options? (XP)

Hi: I posted to the Anything board, but thought it was worth a try here as well. I recently suffered a second miscarriage and I'm looking for fertility testing options that we might consider. Feedback / advice welcome! TIA, Christa Here is a link to the post on the anything board with some more info: http://www.pregnancy.org/bulletinboards/anything-topic-board-200/multiple-miscarriage-fertility-testing-options-707667/#post9089747

:bigarmhug: 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*
