A family friend suggested I have my mercury levels tested as it could be a possible reason for my RPL. Is there any validity to this theory?

There are numerous reasons why you are having multiple losses, mercury toxicity is the least likely and although in the literature is not a commone etiology for RPL. I am sure we can find the reason for your losses but you really need a complete evaluation , not just a random test. The most likely reasons are on the website and can usually give you an explanation. Why dont you fill out the questionairre in the "contact us" portion of the website and fax it in and let me look at your case. Ive had many like yours. But I need quite a bit of detail to begin to give you answers.
