FOR ANYONE WHO HAS HAD RECURRENT MISCARRIAGES: I had 3 miscarriages in the past 2 years. I'm now 5 months pregnant for the first time and want to share something with you that may help you. Please go to a specialist if you have had multiple miscarriages and ask them to give you a blood test to see if you have a blood clot. I had no idea that I have a blood clot that was preventing my fetus from being able to get oxygen and nutrients to grow. I always had a yolk sac but the fetus inside was either extremely small or seemed to have disappeared. My OBGYN never once mentioned anything about the possibility of a blood clot and I had never heard of it. It's more common than you think and I have no one in my family who has ever had it but I do. Believe me, I know what you are going through if you have had miscarriages and I really want you to ask your doctor to give you the test. I believe they call it the antiphospholipid test.... it's a simple blood test and they send it to a lab for testing and within a couple of weeks you should be able to get your results to tell if that could be the problem. If it is the problem then you will give yourself Lovenox shots which is a blood thinner in the sides of the stomach. It has worked for me! Please look into it.
PS I was diagnosed once with PCOS but had almost none of the common symptoms. I do not have PCOS. I do have a blood clot. If you have been told you don't fit the common symptoms of PCOS you may want to ask a specialist about being tested for a blood clot. They can occasionally cause you pain in similar region of the body.
