No. See a specialist: The gonorrhea should have been treated after your 1st miscarriage. After 2 or more miscarriages we do tests to find out why. Possible causes include autoimmune conditions like antiphospholipid antibodies, blood clotting disorders, low egg supply, problems in the uterus like fibroids or a uterine septum, hormonal problems, or male or female genetic problems. Get checked out by a rei specialist.

Dr. Rehman is correct. Even if the first miscarriage occured when you had gonorrhea, it wasn't necessarily the cause of that miscarriage and certainly has nothing to do with the later ones.
