There are also many myths about recurrent miscarriages. One is that a backwards-pointing womb, or retroverted uterus, causes abortions. It definitely doesn't. Sexual intercourse doesn't either, nor an examination by your doctor.
Miscarriages are traumatic events and in cases of recurrent miscarriages, I suggest a low-key approach. Don't tell anyone but your doctor at first. Let your partner into the secret later at an opportune moment and rest as much as possible. Get a scan after six weeks as this will show if baby is developing and in the right place. Your doctor can arrange this. When you've got to the magic 12 weeks or later, when miscarriages are less likely to happen, then you can let everyone in on your happy news.
