Hello everyone, I'am a 21 year old girl in Florida and my husband is 25. I have had 3 miscarriages and no kids. my first miscarriage was 3 years ago, second-9 months ago and third-5 months ago. It has been very hard to get through this, especially when my friends and family are having babies like bunnies. We have the perfect job, home and all we need is a baby to fill our lives. My gyn simply told me, "come see me when you get medical insurance because testing can be expensive". I can see that I was only a number sign for him. Any advice please?

Hi Cristine. I am so sorry for your losses. It must be very hard to have to deal with. I couldn't imagine... Have you visited a clinic of some sort to see if they offer free testing?

I havent visited a clinic for free testing. I thought that the only option was to look for insurance like the "wise" doctor suggested. Thanks for your advise Jennifer, it really helps.

You could look for insc. but the cost for independent insc. is outrageous. I would check into some clinics in your area to see if they offer free testing for mult. m/c. Did they do any testing on the babies you lost? I just can't see someone your age having to go thru this w/o good medical advice. Again, I am so sorry. I hope I have been helpful. Good luck and keep me updated. (((HUGS)))

My doctor told me that I had (blighted ovum) it's a pregnancy w/o fetus. the fetus does not form. He never offered to do testings. I researched online and found out that he could have done testings on the tissues after the d&c, but he never did. I would look into free testing. Thanks once again.

Hi Cristina. Can you get insurance through your job? I was just asking because I had a similar situation come up when I had my m/c in April. I don't currently have insurance and was having a hard time getting into see a doctor because they either charged WAY too much or I made too much money to qualify for a__sistance. I ended up being referred to a clinic after calling a Planned Parenthood. I'm not sure what your finanical situation is, but if you end up making too much money to get medicaid or other free a__sistance, your best bet is to try and get on company insurance because alot of the independant insurnace doesn't cover maternity. Atleast that's what I have found. If anyone finds anything otherwise please share because I currently have to wait until January to TTC so i can get enrolled in insurance during the open enrollment period.

Cerulean. Thank you very much for your advice. I am an independent contractor, dont have insurance through my company. I dont qualify for a__sistance, medicaid told me that I can only qualify if I get pregnant again ( and run the risk of m/c the 4th time). I am researching online for suggestions on testing and looking for labs that offer such testings. I am currently planning on having my husband do a s____n a___lysis.
