    1. Hello, I had had a couple of miscarriages and I am desperate, I need to know why this keeps happening, I don´t think I can take any more heartbreak

      • Hello Lory,

        I am so sorry you are going thru this. Recurrent miscarriages can have several causes, the most important thing to do is to identify this cause, see if it is a genetic cause or a problem with the womb.

        I recommend you go to a fertility clinic so they can assess the problem and offer the best solution to achieve pregnancy.

        Best of luck.

    2. Hello, what is the treatment offered by this clinic, I have had bad experiences and I would like to know if anyone has had any experience with this clinic. Thank you
