Types of recurrent miscarriage tests
1. Blood tests
Blood tests for recurrent miscarriages may provide vital information to your fertility specialists in determining the cause of the miscarriage.
A blood test allows your fertility specialist to examine your levels of proteins, progesterone, and thyroid hormones, all of which are important in ensuring a healthy pregnancy.
2. Genetic Screening (PGS/PGT-A)
Chromosome abnormalities, or an irregular number or placement of chromosomes in the embryo, are the leading cause of miscarriages.
Women who experience recurrent miscarriages should consider genetic screening (PGS/PGT-A) to determine whether any genetic variations are present.
Ultrasounds are non-invasive procedures that use sound waves to make images of the body's structures and organs.
An ultrasound is often conducted to diagnose recurrent miscarriages as well as identify polyps, fibroids, uterine growths, and ovarian or endometrial problems.
Fertility doctors use a hysterosalpingogram, or HSG, to determine the health of a woman's uterus and reproductive system.
4. Hysteros-alpingogram (HSG)
In this test, your fertility doctor will inject a dye into the uterus and take images of the uterus and fallopian tubes using an x-ray.
A hysteroscopy may be recommended if fibroids, polyps, or other abnormalities are detected by an HSG.
The uterus is inserted with a thin telescope during this test. The fertility doctor can then get a more accurate picture of the patient's reproductive system.
During an endometrial biopsy, your fertility specialist will remove a small sample of endometrial tissues to examine for anomalies that could make the uterus incapable of maintaining a pregnancy.
6. Endometrial Biopsy
