HABITUAL MISCARRIAGE: We should begin your answer by assuming you do NOT have habitual miscarriage--the absence of a sac is common in spontaneous abortion, or "chemical pregnancy." I would simply attempt another pregnancy (without all the expensive testing), and if this, too, ends in miscarriage, I would see a trusted board-certified ob-gyn who can do further testing.
