Consult specialist: Recurrent pregnancy loss (rpl) is a frustrating and emotionally charged problem with many causes. Find a physician with an interest in managing rpl and discuss the evaluation and treatment options. Some patients need addl progesterone, some a blood thinner, some Insulin or metformin.

Ovulation is key!: Also this may be a good time to lose weight, and get on a healthy exercise and nutrition program, reduce stress levels, and take your prenatal supplements if you are serious. Sometimes acupuncture can improve blood flow to the uterine area. However, your FSH/LH blood levels will determine your ability to ovulate and conceive. So, work with a doctor, who can help you evaluate your whole picture. Read more

Warning: side effects of exercise and maintaining ideal body weight include health and longevity. Read more
