I would like to know if you could tell me some tips on how to prevent miscarriages.
I was talking with some of the women in my family and found out miscarriages run in the family. Every woman in my family has had at least 3 miscarriages before there first full term healthy baby. I on the other hand have had 5 miscarriages in the past 2 years.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
The first thing is to have a work-up by an infertility specialist to figure out the cause of the miscarriages.
Many times the problem can be fixed pretty easily, but I would not be the one to tell you what your options are.
I would not recommend that you just "keep trying" after 5 miscarriages; it is time to know what is happening.
P.S. The good news is that at least you can get pregnant!
