Next, they typically recommend blood tests to identify potential causes of the miscarriage. This is followed by a visit to discuss and make a plan of management for future pregnancies.
You may also need an imaging test, such as an ultrasound, to determine whether the miscarriages are due to a uterine problem or structural issue. Adefris & Toppin Women’s Specialists conveniently offers in-office ultrasound exams.
