Spontaneous miscarriage: Understanding everything

About


Spontaneous miscarriage is defined as the unexpected loss of the pregnancy before the 20th week of pregnancy.


According to a study, 10% to 25% of all clinically recognized pregnancies will end in miscarriages and chemical pregnancies may account for 50%–75% of all miscarriages.[1]



- It is usually a one-term occurrence.
- Chromosomal abnormalities are the cause of half of the spontaneous miscarriages.
- Women above the age of 40 years are at higher risk.
- Only 1% may have repetitive miscarriages.


Also called: Early Pregnancy loss, Spontaneous miscarriage
