Repeated miscarriages are devastating. Still, don’t lose hope, chances are good you can carry to term.

Recurrent pregnancy losses take a toll. However, there’s reason for hope. Even after 3 miscarriages, a woman has a 60–80% chance of conceiving and carrying a pregnancy to term.

When you have multiple miscarriages, we understand you want answers.

Many times, there are reasons why a woman or couple is experiencing recurrent miscarriages. Through testing, we can identify the cause of continued pregnancy losses and start medical treatment or surgery.

  • Genetic
    Almost 60% of early miscarriages (in the first 3 months of pregnancy) happen because of genetic abnormalities in the embryo or fetus, such as an extra or missing chromosome. Your risk for genetic abnormalities increases at 40 years old.
  • Anatomic
    Though not common, a unique uterus shape due to genetics can lead to miscarriages. More common reasons we also look for: septum (or a band of tissue) that results in a small uterus, fibroids, and benign muscle tumors.
  • Lifestyle and environmental
    Miscarriages aren’t anyone’s fault. Some things do increase risk and should be avoided: smoking, recreational drugs, excess weight, and high alcohol or caffeine intake.
  • Medical
    Untreated medical conditions, like thyroid disease or diabetes, raise your risk of miscarriage. Immune or blood-clotting system disorders (thrombophilia) can too.

When you’re ready, we can help you have a full and healthy pregnancy.
