Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for seeking our advice. I am so sorry to hear that you have had three consecutive miscarriages.

Was the cause determined? Your obstetrician is the person who can advise you and recommend genetic testing.

About 60% of all miscarriages are caused by a chromosomal abnormality. Genetic testing is recommended for couples who experience two or more consecutive miscarriages.

Chromosomes are the tiny structures in each cell that carry our genes; we each have 23 pairs of them, one set from our mother and one set from our father. Sometimes, when the egg and sperm meet, one or the other is faulty and then the chromosomes can’t line up properly. In that case, the resulting embryo has a chromosomal abnormality and the pregnancy usually results in a miscarriage.

However, I am concerned about the burning or "hotness" you experience following conception. I wonder if an immunologic disorder is a cause.

In some cases, the embryo isn't accepted by the woman’s body. “Antiphospholipid antibodies—antibodies that attack one’s own tissue, including embryos—account for many miscarriages that physicians used to think were unexplainable,”says Jonathan Scher, MD a fertility specialist in Manhattan and co-author of Preventing Miscarriage: The Good News (Collins 2005).

Please talk with your physician about this.
