Stay positive: Miscarriages are more common than many realize. It is discouraging to have had 2 but it still may simply be bad luck. Meanwhile, make sure your thyroid levels are in the normal range. Ideally your TSH should be less than 2 and it does not respond quickly to treatment. It is the thyroid level and not the antibodies that affect your fertility. Then get checked further if you continue to miscarry.
