Multiple miscarriages

I have had 6 miscarriages and haven’t been given a reason why. Just found out that my husband has the sickle cell trait,could this be the answer that I have been looking for? Please help me I want to have a healthy pregnancy soon.


  1. Hi Shanequa, I am so sorry for your losses. Your husband’s sickle cell trait shouldn’t affect your fertility, but if you haven’t I recommend being tested as well as you being a carrier could affect your offspring possibly. After this many losses I’d recommend a thorough work-up. I do go into more detail about that here, but I’d definitely recommend talking to your doctor about this so you can get some answers. Good luck!
