Hello,

I would like to know if your periods are regular or not?

The spotting you got, might be due to ovulation,but not necessary.

I would like to know the details about the abortions:
1-At how many weeks were the previous two abortions?
2-What was your age at the time of abortion?
3-Were they painless or painful?
4-Do you have any investigations done for the abortions?

I would like to advice you to go for atleast ultrasonography of the pelvis to rule out ectopic pregnancy which might lead to spotting the way you have described.

I would like to review with the reports and the answers of the queries asked.

The chances of pregnancy are there, but due to the age little less than young females.

Don't worry,every thing would be fine.

Take care.

Hello,

Considering your age, I would like to advice you a few tests: CBC (complete Blood Count) with ESR, HbA1C, Thyroid function tests and an ultrasound of the pelvis.

For your husband, a semen analysis after 3 days of abstinence.

I would also like to know whether the previous abortions were spontaneous or induced abortions.

Don't worry, remain stress free and everything would be fine.
Take care

Hello,

The symptoms do not indicate pregnancy yet; I would advice you to wait for your natural periods, and if you miss one then go for a HPT.

You can offcource XXXXXXX your obstetrician for the further advice.

Don't worry, remain stress free and everything would be fine.

Take care.
