When a prospective mother goes through two or more spontaneous losses in pregnancies, it is known as recurrent miscarriages. 15% of pregnancies can end in miscarriages before 20 weeks of gestation. It is known as a loss of pregnancy. Most of the miscarriages generally occur within the first 12 weeks of gestation. Recurrent miscarriage is also known as 'habitual pregnancy loss', which is 3 or more miscarriages. When miscarriages are occurring very frequently, there could be an underlying genetic cause. The treatment for pregnancy losses could involve anything from prenatal surgery, careful monitoring, antibiotics and hormone therapy.
What are the diagnostic tests that determine the causes of miscarriage?
There are lots of tests that can help to diagnose the possible cause of miscarriage.
Why does a miscarriage take place?
Miscarriage is a natural process that protects a woman from an abnormal pregnancy. Most of the losses are based on the chromosomal abnormality of the embryo. Genetic factors could also be preventing the normal development of the embryo.
There are lots of ways to treat miscarriages, even recurrent ones. It would be ideal to talk to the doctor about your options.
