It is estimated that miscarriages occur in approximately 15 percent of recognized pregnancies. The incidence is higher in women greater than 35 years of age.

Many factors can cause a miscarriage, including:

  • Chromosomal (genetic) problems
  • An abnormal uterus
  • Blood clotting abnormalities
  • Infection, hypothyroidism
  • Diabetes
  • Drug use

Couples who have experienced two or more miscarriages may want to undergo testing to determine whether there is a correctable cause of their losses. A complete evaluation of a couple with recurrent miscarriages would include hormonal testing, immune testing, uterine testing, and genetic counseling and testing.
