"Up to 15% of recurrent pregnancy failures may be caused by an autoimmune disease called APS."

I have noticed that many of you ladies have experienced recurrent miscarriages, which I am sure is extremely painful physically and even more emotionally. I am so sorry for you losses and really hope that you watch this short 2-minute WebMD video.

APS WebMDvideo:

The woman in the video had 3 miscarriages before her doctor tested her for APS (Antiphospholipid Syndrome). After treating this autoimmune disease, she was finally able to give birth.

Please talk to your doctors about this and I hope to find more information about the causes of miscarriage.

I wish everyone the best and hope to be a more helpful presence to the community:)

Best Wishes,
