High ptt: There are many causes of miscarriage. A high ptt is something that should be investigated among other things for general health, not only miscarriage. The reasons for high PTT can be autoimmune disease, liver disease, including hepatitis or other liver infection or infestation. This is something that should be looked at by your doctor or a hematologist.

You may not know: You can know you have miscarried if you pass and can recognize pregnancy tissue, or if you have a positive pregnancy test that becomes negative after heavy bleeding.

Instead of miscarrying again, how successful are surrogates?

Successful: Surrogacy is very successful. Its not a perfect solution because it is expensive and comes with the baggage of dealing with another woman who is now the mother of YOUR child. Some outsource surrogacy to places like the Philippines. Infertility specialists in the US can also arrange it. Best wishes!

I don't have insurance but I think I might be miscarrying. What should I do?

Miscarriage: There is no specific treatment for miscarriage. Some bleeding during early pregnancy is common. If it is persistent, it may result in miscarriage and there is nothing that doctors can do to prevent it. Thus, while I realize that you are probably very anxious, the best thing is to just wait and see what happens. If the bleeding persists, you will know it is a miscarriage with a blood test (hcg).
