I used to be pregnant but only one month after I knew that I was going to have a baby it was lost. It happened two time like this. I want to ask why it is always like that? Me and My husband really want to have a baby.

In order to investigate the causes of having a miscarriage your doctor will need to answer the following questions:

  1. How old were you when you experienced first and second miscarriage?
  2. Do you have a history of chronic illness?
  3. What is your family history concerning miscarriage or other chronic illness?
  4. What was your lifestyle during before and during your pregnancy?
  5. When did it happen (both first time and second time)? (such as week 4)
  6. Have you ever checked with your OB/GYN after you experienced a miscarriage? (both first time and second time) If yes, Did he/she run any tests after the miscarriage?

The causes for miscarriage are varied, and most often the cause cannot be identified. However, if you have had more than one miscarriage your doctor may run tests for possible causes such as immune disorders, hormone disorders, or illness.

If you are planning to get pregnant again, we would recommended that you consult with a specialist in Maternal-Fetal Medicine before you get pregnant. Most women who have experienced repeated miscarriages are more likely to experience a miscarriage again. With testing and possible treatment, you and your partner can hopefully bring down the risks of a future loss and experience a healthy pregnancy.

Additionally, a specialist can provide you with specific guidelines to follow to prepare yourself for pregnancy. For example, in general cases a doctor will usually recommend changes to your lifestyle and boosting your immune system for three months in advance of pregnancy.
