I am 25 years old and I have had 3 miscarriages, we have been trying for a baby for 3 years and we have miscarried every year for 3 years now. Because I have had 3, they are now classed as recurrent miscarriage.

I feel frustrated because no one can tell me what is wrong and why this is happening and how to stop it happening.

Everyone also says oh your young you have plenty of time but I wanted to have children in my early twenties. No matter how old you are, it doesn't change how you feel.

When we had our first miscarriage I thought I was just spotting, it was Father's Day and we were in a&e. They scanned me and said they could see the heartbeat so all looked positive, 3 days later I had to go back for another scan and they found that I had miscarried.

When it came to my third miscarriage, I knew immediately what was going on, you get to know what is happening in your body.

My partner has been very supportive and I think men are often forgot about as they feel the same as you are feeling.

We are still trying for a baby and crossing our fingers for some help.
