In brief: Seek evaluation

Evaluation and consultation for recurrent pregnancy loss is an involved process.
It is best to seek evaluation that may include a series of blood tests for hormones, clotting, and chromosomal analysis, uterine cavity evaluation, etc. Majority of the time, evaluation is normal. Usually recommend getting pregnant again, which usually results in a live birth ~60-70% of the time.

In brief: Get help

First, you should have a thorough exam, history and lab work (maybe also an ultrasound) to find out why.
Recurrent miscarriage can be genetic, hormonal, autoimmune or infectious. We can figure out how to help until we know what to help. If everything is negative, ask to talk to a reproductive specialist.
