Hi

can I express my views? please

B. Aspirin and LMWH will be effective than aspirin alone if recurrent miscarriage is due to antiphospholipid antibody syndrome - so false.

D. the effectiveness of surgical treatment of uterine abnormalities on improving pregnancy rates has not been established - so False
