What Is Recurrent Miscarriage?

A miscarriage is when you lose a pregnancy at some point in the first 23 weeks. When this happens three or more times, doctors call this as recurrent miscarriage. Around one woman in every 100 has recurrent miscarriages.

Having polycystic ovaries, Diabetes or Thyroid disorders or vaginal infection during pregnancy can also be a cause of recurrent miscarriage

What Can Be Done?

If a definite cause is found, treating it before or during pregnancy will improve the chance of a successful pregnancy significantly. Often despite careful investigations, the reasons for recurrent miscarriages cannot be found. However, even if they have not found a definite reason for your miscarriages, you still have a good chance (three out of four) of a healthy birth
