Recurrent Pregnancy Loss

According to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), recurrent pregnancy loss is when a woman has two or more miscarriages (clinical pregnancies) before 20 weeks gestation.

Possible Causes:

  • Genetic abnormalities: embryo or fetus
  • Poor egg quality
  • Irregular shaped uterus
  • Presence of a band of tissue — septum — in the uterus
  • Fibroids
  • High body mass index (BMI)
  • Untreated thyroid disease
  • Uncontrolled diabetes
  • Smoking
  • Recreational drug use
  • High caffeine intake
  • Alcohol

Even after having multiple miscarriages, a woman has a 60-80% chance of conceiving and carrying a full-term pregnancy.
