I had a daughter who is 3 years 5 months. She was born in 2007 and after that, I was pregnant in 2009 but at around 12 weeks I had a miscarriage.

I was pregnant again recently and on 8 of Feb 2011, I had another miscarriage again and this time, it was 10 weeks 5 days. I am so worried now because I don't know what the problem is and my Gp can't tell the problem. Can you help me please?

Hi Anna There are two possible reasons for the miscarriages, it's unlikely your doctor would consider them. One your progesterone level was too low to sustain the pregnancy, the other your vitamin D was too low. We do have a page on Pregnancy you could look through for advice on the progesterone. Please have a vitamin D test done. Birmingham Hospital now send out test kits, but please ignore their adequate level, which is far too low. For more info on vitamin D see the Vitamin D Links, Vitamin D Council, and GrassrootsHealth websites. Blood levels should be 175-250nmol/L and not the 75nmol/L most labs and doctors regard as adequate. BH's adequate level is 50nmol/L! And the minimum daily dose should be 5000iu's per day, although the latest research indicates it should be 10,000iu's per day, see here. Vitamin D is vital for a successful pregnancy, vital too for the growth of the foetus, see here, here, here, here and here. These are excellent videos to watch too, see here and here. Take care Wray
