    Thought this list might be useful for anyone in the recurrent m/c bracket who are undergoing testing. I have had some crap medical care and don't want others to have the same. These are the tests I have had by 3 specialists- please add additional ones if your need to.

    * coeliac disease
    * MTHFR homozygosity
    * anti- beta II glycoprotein
    * prothrombin gene mutation 20210A
    * anticardiolipin anitbody
    * plasma homocysteine
    * antinuclear antibodies
    * prothromin 3
    * protein C
    * Free protein S (antigenic)
    * RVV test
    * Delta KCT
    * Lupus anticoagulant
    * Factor V Leidin

    Great list Meg. Good to see MTHFR listed. I actually have that abnormality and was also told at the time in can cause re-current miscarriages. When i heard that I came here and asked the girls if they have ever heard of it before..

    So finding out i had that abnormality and being told i would be lucky to ever have kids cause of Endometriosis I feel extremely blessed

    What a great idea, Meg. Any chance this thread could be made a sticky? I'm sure lots of people would find it really interesting.

    The only other test I can think of atm is a TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) test.

    This is fantastic!

    I must admit, after multiple miscarriages, I have been tested for a range of things, but I have to admit to being a bit norty and leaving it up to the professionals to monitor. I suppose I always thought that "next time" would be ok.

    I am going to find out the tests I've had and what the actaul results are. I do know that of all the tests I've had, I have come up "normal" in all of them, including genetic testing of embryos.

    Gets frustrating when the tests come back as good, but you still can either get or stay pregnant.
