Recurrent Pregnancy Loss

What is recurrent pregnancy loss?

Recurrent pregnancy loss involves a history of two or more miscarriages. There are a number of reasons why you may be at increased risk for multiple miscarriages.

In about 60% of cases, the miscarriage is the result of the embryo having an abnormal number of chromosomes at the time of fertilization, rather than because of an underlying medical condition.

Other potential causes for recurrent pregnancy loss include:

  • Advanced maternal age
  • Uterine defects or scar tissue
  • Abnormal chromosomes in sperm or egg

You may also be at risk for recurrent pregnancy loss if you have immunological infertility due to an underlying autoimmune disorder that mistakenly attacks antibodies needed for normal clotting of your blood or a chronic health condition, like diabetes.

For some women experiencing recurrent miscarriages, the reason is unknown.

What diagnostics are available for recurrent pregnancy loss?

The staff at New York Fertility Institute offers onsite diagnostic testing to evaluate your reproductive health.

The doctors take the time to review your personal and family medical history and perform a complete physical and pelvic exam to identify potential causes for the repeated loss of pregnancy. They may recommend imaging tests, like an ultrasound, to check for uterine growths or abnormalities.

To detect autoimmune disorders or diabetes-related complications, your New York Fertility Institute provider requests in-office blood work.

Are treatments available for recurrent pregnancy loss?

There are several available options for addressing recurrent pregnancy loss, and your treatment plan depends on the cause of your frequent miscarriages.

If you have uterine-related problems, such as scar tissue, you may be a candidate for corrective surgery. Genetic counseling may be beneficial if you have a history of genetic disorders that result in repeated pregnancy loss.

If underlying health issues, like diabetes, are interfering with a successful pregnancy, your New York Fertility Institute doctor can refer you to a medical specialist for additional diagnostic testing and treatment.

When no cause is found for recurrent pregnancy loss, your New York Fertility Institute provider can discuss your options for conceiving a child, such as in-vitro fertilization (IVF), a gestational carrier, or surrogacy.
