Yes: 3 miscarriages qualifies as 'recurrent pregnancy loss' sometimes the miscarriages aren't due to you, but due to sperm as well. Chromosomal abnormalities have to be considered in both of you. You may want to see an infertility specialist to get some testing to see if that could be an issue (i.e. Balanced translocations, etc). Without knowing what tests were done, can't speak if had all workup. ...Read more

Could i still have thyroid issues with normal bloodwork lump in neck thinks its thyroid? Had three miscarriages too no answers

Not sure...: Thyroid levels can fluctate, so even if it was normal once, it can be abnormal later. Check with your endocrinologist. If you feel a lump in your neck, get it looked at. The endocrinologist can also likely take care of the evaluation for that, but you might need an ENT to look further into it. ...Read more

If : If your discharge does not clear up after your next period, recommend that you be evaluated by your doctor. If it is really bothering you, you might wish to see your doctor sooner. Reasons for nipple discharge can include stimulation of the breast, pregnancy, medications, galactorrhea (secretion of milk or similar substance), an abscess or other breast infection, hormonal imbalances (like hypothyroidism), fibrocystic breasts (breasts are very fibrous), blocked mammary duct, breast cancer and intraductal papilloma (non cancerous mass), use of marijuana, anise and fennel. This is not an all inclusive list. I think that nipple discharge can be worrisome for a woman. But the cause can be very benign. Most often there is a cause other than cancer. Take care. ...Read more

I have had three consecutive miscarriages. What can I do to prevent another one?

MTHFR test: Have a lab test for your MTHFR genes. If you have a genetic variation (a SNP), then that may be a main cause of your recurrent miscarriages. Eat dark leafy greens uncooked twice a day, avoid cyanocobalamin and unmethylated folic acid. See www.mthfr.net for lots more information. ...Read more

My hCG levels haven't decreased to zero since three weeks early miscarriage and i'm spotting lightly again. What does that mean?

Could be normal..: Your level may never reaches zero--as some nonpregnant females have level at 3-4 all the time, up to 5 is considered normal. Having a miscarriage just few weeks ago, your next period may not be normal--could be lighter or heavier than usual. If you are concerned that you could be pregnant again, do a quick hpt. Consult with doc. Good luck. ...Read more
