Drugs That Reduce Risk of Repeat Miscarriages

Interesting article states that a 4-drug combination reduces the risk of recurrent miscarriage. Read it here and let me know what you think. Has anyone tried any of the drugs mentioned in this article? Has it worked?

This IS interesting. I don't know about using a steroid while pregnant. I have heard of using aspirin though.

From the clinical standpoint, I have known the doctor to give someone progesterone the first trimester. This is especially helpful because I believe progesterone is what is needed by the follicle in the ovary that supports the pregnancy initially.
They also give ladies steroids later in pregnancy to help develop the lungs (twins and up). Folate is one of the most important vitamins you can take before even thinking about conceiving. Aspirin I've never heard of. Maybe for someone that has blood clotting factors or problems, but this is usually done with heparin and other medicines.
