I think I'm the same as some of you. After my first 2 or 3 miscarriages I wanted answers, I wanted testing, I wanted intervention. Only problem was the Drs here in the UK aren't that keen on helping young people and despite all my suffering I have never been allowed any tests to see if there is a reason for my miscarriages or not.

After my 2nd or 3rd loss, I just decided to leave everything in fate's hands. If I get pregnant and it all works out, that's great. If it doesn't, well there's probably not a lot I could have done to change that outcome anyway...


I think it is TERRIBLE that they wouldn't so any testing. I think at a minimum all Dr's should be willing to do the most common thyroid, diabetes, etc. I am sorry that they didn't offer you more in your after care.

I am sorry you haven't been given the option to get the tests you wanted. That makes me mad - and I'm not even in the UK.
