  • Dear Onome, so sorry for your loss hun. Have you ever had a hormone profile done? Sometimes, a miscarriage can throw our periods off rhythm, but 2015 is a long time for this to still persist.

  • Hi Tee. So sorry for the late response. My dear, you are quite correct. We are prone to low levels of progesterone, which also can contribute to miscarriage.
