I am lost and heartbroken. Iam healthy 30year old on daily prenatal and fish oil supplements. Dr said they would look into his. But I cant help but to feel hopeless, why does this keep happening? All of the pregnancies are with the same father,my husband. What should I ask for testing wise? Any insight is reatly appreciated :0)

I would start by getting genetic testing on both you and your husband. Then you need to look for issues that are affecting implantation. There may be an immune issue that is occasionaly flaring up that may be the cause of these sporadic losses. Maybe endocrine issues as well. But the good news is that as long as you've had healthy children and you are young , there is NO reason to expect you wont have another. We just need to find the issue.
I would be happy to guide you with this workup, which we can do regardless of whether you can get to NY. Please call my office and schedule a consultation with me and we can get you started. Do not despair.

Thank you so very much Dr B! I recently recieved the results from the d&c, Male trisomy 8. I cant seem to find any info on this. Does this change anything as far as what I need to be looking into? We have 3 healthy kids so what are the chances that this could be a reoccuring issue?

It would be unusual that all these losses are genetic as you have had normal children. This makes the likelihood that either of you possesing a translocation as a cause is low.
More likely still are immune or even PCOS that can also affect genetic viability of the eggs.
I still think you need a detailed workup but the prognosis is excellent here.
