Research shows that 1 in 6 pregnancies ends in a miscarriage in the first trimester, before 12 weeks of gestation. This usually occurs due to abnormalities in the embryos. When the maternal age increases particularly in women more than 35 years of age, the probability of miscarriage is more due to poor egg quality and chromosomal defects.
However, recurrent miscarriages defined as two consecutive pregnancy losses are not common and affects one woman in every hundred and can be very distressing to the couple. This is three times more than what could be expected by chance alone and hence need investigations to see if there is a specific reason for the losses.
Some of the investigations are a chromosomal analysis of both partners, checking for antibodies called antiphospholipid antibodies and thrombophilia screen to identify a cause for recurrent miscarriages. In about half of the women with recurrent miscarriages, a cause can be identified and treatment directed towards this. However, in the other half, no cause can still be identified and in these women continued attempts at further pregnancy is encouraged as there is still a good chance of successful live birth in the future.
We offer the latest techniques such as PGS (Preimplantation Genetic Screening) and PGD (Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis) to help women suffering from recurrent pregnancy losses to achieve a healthy pregnancy.
Our team of experts recognizes the unique challenges faced by couples experiencing recurrent miscarriages and are committed to provide support and offer evidence-based treatment methods to help them achieve a healthy live birth.
