Is wobenzyme safe when I have not yet been diagnozed with immunologic issues?

I recently had a missed miscarraige at 11 weeks. Saw the heartbeat at 6, 8 and 10 weeks. No heatbeat at 12 week ultrasound.

I am now pregnant again, and would like to have an immunologic work-up to prevent another miscarriage, but the doctors at my local fertility clinic will not order any until 3 miscarriages (I am 35 and don't have time for this since it took me 6 months to get pregnant the first time, and 7 months the second time).

I have had a naturopath and acupuncturist recommend taking wobenzyme to prevent immunologic miscarriage. I am also taking baby aspirin. Is this safe to take if I have not been diagnosed with an immunologic issue?

If so, do you know what the difference is between wobenzyme N and wobenzyme PS?

Thank you.

Your doctors are incorrect. Any time after a loss of a fetal heart beat you should get a full immune profile. If there are immune issues the wobenzyme by itself will be of little to no value. I would recommend getting the immune workup while you are pregannt so we can see the reaction of your immune system to the pregnancy. If you would like us to help you please just call the office and let them know you are pregnant , we expedite these cases. Ill talk to you and guide you on what you need to do.
