For some women who have suffered recurrent miscarriage testing the immune system helps to find out of your body is rejecting the pregnancy.

Natural Killer (NK) cells help your body to fight infection, and in a normal pregnancy your body supresses these cells to accept the foetus, but this doesn’t happen in all women, and you may need medication to supress these NK cells.

A simple blood test will help your fertility specialist work out the best treatment regime for you. Treatment can include Intravenous – immunoglobulins (IVIg). They regulate the immune system for a healthy pregnancy.
