Recurrent pregnancy loss

  The chance of miscarrying any pregnancy is about 15%. Recurrent pregnancy loss is the term used after 3 miscarriages, though sometimes after 2. We can offer full investigations for this condition and provide not only treatment but also support during pregnancy. There are many causes including chromosomal (genetic), hormonal, immune, and abnormal blood clotting. The investigations include hormonal assessment, pelvic ultrasound scan to assess the cavity of the uterus and the ovaries, blood tests to detect any increased tendency for the blood to clot, and genetic chromosome analysis of both partners. Support (in the form of regular scans and reassurance) in early pregnancy in women with recurrent pregnancy loss has been shown in studies to increase the chance of a successful pregnancy.
