Dear Bubu
although you have now had 2 consecutive miscarriages the nature of the miscarriages differ significantly and therefore the causes of each may be very different, however i would strongly recommend that you visit a fertility specialist at this stage since there may be underlying factors such as auto immune disorder or genetic factors which may be extremely important in a subsequent pregnancy. Also the possibility of a underlying thyroid abnormality should also be excluded. If these miscarriages were your only pregnancies than further investigation of the uterine(womb) should be undertaken as well.
