Dear Madam, Since you think you are having symptoms suggestive of and there is a strong family history of lupus in your family, you should request your doctor to do the preliminary tests for lupus. Lupus may lead to pregnancy loss if it is associated with APLA syndrome. Kindly get your self evaluated at the earliest.
