Post subject: 'Sticky Blood' Tests???
In a few weeks I will be going through the investigations for recurrent miscarriages, one of which I understand is for ‘sticky blood syndrome’ (I know it has a fancy name but I can’t remember what it is).
I know that if we were to fall pregnant before the tests for sticky blood then the results would be void because the pregnancy hormones would interfere – so we are currently not TTC.
What I wanted to ask was, is it a case of just ONE blood test for this? I have read something on the internet that said that I would then need a second blood test 6 weeks after the first to confirm the results... if this is true then that means that we would have to consider not TTC until the new year!! I would find this extra wait really difficult!
Thank you in advance for any replies!

this is two blood test over six weeks although you will only be called back for the second if you have tested positive for the first. to be quite honest with you, you are better holding off TTC until all test have been done and save some of the heart ache from losing little ones. I had to have three blood test as the first one was Positive second one was neg and the third one was positive. I have been told i have antiphosholipid syndrome. spelt wrong sorry.
