Hi I'm 29 years old and I have had more than 4 miscarriages. My doctor has ran many tests and has found nothing wrong with me. My last miscarriage was 3 years ago and I haven't been able to get pregnant since than. My doctor has referred me to a fertility specialist but I can't afford it. I don't know what else to do.
