Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Well, a previous miscarriage does increase the chance of a subsequent one if the cause is repetitive. It would be best to consult your gynecologist regarding this and get tests like blood sugar, anemia, VDRL, TORCH, STD etc since. Hope this helps. Take care!
