Multiple Miscarriages

By | January 6, 2014

Of all pregnancies, 15-20% end in miscarriage; 75% of these in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.

For a percentage of families, 2 or more miscarriages are common and now are part of the medical definition of infertility (defined as 2 or more consecutive miscarriages).

Miscarriage can leave you with deep-rooted feelings of loss and sorrow. It can take time to process. Talk to your partner; know that sometimes men and women sometimes experience grief in different ways. What is important is to talk and work out the best way forward for both you and your partner.

Unknown: the reality is that in the vast majority of cases the reason for the miscarriage is unknown or due to multiple factors. It is important to note that it is rarely one factor; this may include hormonal factors, egg quality, sperm quality, embryo quality, chromosomal, uterine or immunological factors. To add to the complexity, it  is possible to have different causes for each miscarriage. With this consideration it may not be possible to discover a pattern for a woman’s miscarriages.

In seventy percent of couples with unexplained pregnancy loss, the couple will go on to have a successful pregnancy, others will turn to donor sperm/egg or embryo donation and have an ongoing successful pregnancy.

For those for whom this doesn’t work, they will turn to surrogacy
