    Hi all,

    My sister-in-law has been referred to a consultant for recurrent miscarriage and is waiting for the appointment.

    She's now had four miscarriages in a row since the birth of her little one. We suspect it might have something to do with her c-section.

    Can anyone tell me what kind of things the consultant will look at/test?

    Thanks

    I’ve had some of the recurrent miscarriage tests it will be a lot of bloods at first and then scans I had all my tests done before meeting with the consultant

    Also she needs to make sure she has had a recent smear test and a general check down there (STI tests etc) but getting this done at go might speed up the process a little if you have any questions please feel free to message me

    I would recommend asking a doc whether or not she needs doing karyotype test. One of the most common reasons of mcs are chromosome abnormalities, and karyotype is used to confirm if this is the case.

    I know this is an old thread but I'm posting this information in case it helps anyone else in the future.

    I found out by talking to a nutritionist that there is a link with male coffee consumption and miscarriage. I've had three chemical pregnancies now which I always assumed was down to egg quality as I'm over 40 but my other half drinks bucket loads of coffee and his sperm sample is always 'really good.'

    Here are two studies I found on it.
