What is a miscarriage?

A miscarriage is a spontaneous loss of pregnancy before the 20th week of pregnancy. Almost 80% of miscarriages occur within the first trimester. The most basic reason for a miscarriage is the fetus not developing as it should. At the same time, the problem with the baby’s chromosomes is the cause of 50% of early pregnancy losses.

How does it impact Fertility?
Miscarriage is generally a one-time occurrence. The women who suffer a miscarriage do end up carrying a successful, healthy pregnancy in their lifetime. But some women go on to have repeated miscarriages; these constitute about 1% of women who suffer a miscarriage.

If a woman had suffered a miscarriage, the risk of suffering another is about 20%. Whereas, the risk of Miscarriage after 2 consecutive miscarriages increases to 28%. After three or more miscarriages, the risk of Miscarriage is 43%. Experiencing miscarriages multiple times might be due to Translocation, a genetic abnormality where chromosomes keep transferring. In these cases, the doctors strictly advise the couple to explore other option over natural conception.

These statistics show that consulting a doctor after a miscarriage is vital to reduce the risk associated with future pregnancies. It is always advised to consult a fertility expert and a doctor before trying to conceive again to find the underlying reasons as to why the uterus was unable to carry a pregnancy for full term.
