Recurrent Miscarriage, Habitual Miscarriages

 

The cause of a recurrent miscarriage

 

There are many causes to a recurrent miscarriage.  It is thought of that the majority of causes of miscarriages in the early stages of pregnancy are by chromosomal abnormalities of the fetus (embryo), and there is no need to check the cause if it is a one time miscarriage.  However, if it is a miscarriage of 2 or 3 times or more, and a one time miscarriage after the 10th week of pregnancy then we can say that there is a significance to look into the case of either of the parents being the cause of the problem.

 

In addition to the husband and wife’s chromosomal abnormalities, there are a variety of factors including abnormal uterine morphology, endocrine abnormality, abnormal blood clotting, and immune disorder.

 

Even if we look into the abnormality there is a 35-60% chance that we will not understand the cause.  There are also reports of 50% of the patients with recurrent miscarriages where the chromosomal abnormalities are just coincidentally repeated.  In this kind of case, there will not be a special needed treatment, and after we take away the anxiety, then if you desire a baby then we consider the high possibility of a continuous pregnancy.
