Should I be getting tested for abnormalities because of recurring miscarriage?


Posted by Lsoccer14

I am 28 years old and have just endured my second miscarriage (4th pregnancy).  My first miscarriage was at age 23 and was at 10 weeks gestation.  Since then I had a full term pregnancy in 2005 and 2008.  My 2nd miscarriage was at 8 weeks and 5 days.  Should I be getting tested for abnormalities as my doctor said that he doesn't normally test until 3 miscarriages or 2 in a row?

unfortunately that is pretty much the standard- and even a bit generous (as far as testing after two consecutive).
