When should I see a specialist about miscarriage?

ANSWER

After three miscarriages, consider talking with an OB/GYN who specializes in miscarriage. They may recommend testing for clotting and bleeding disorders as well as special hormone tests. You and your partner also might discuss genetic testing with the doctor.

An X-ray or ultrasound of your reproductive organs may be recommended to look for structural issues that may have played a role.
