Recurrent miscarriage causes untold emotional and psychological anguish for the women it affects. However, for many women who have had two or more miscarriages, the problem is often considered to be pure coincidence.
Understandably though, those women who have experienced recurrent miscarriages often worry that there is something wrong with them or their partner which means they will never be able to carry a baby to term. This is not necessarily the case and lots of women go on to successfully carry future pregnancies full-term.
If you lose more than three consecutive pregnancies, then you may be offered tests to try to determine the causes of miscarriage. You may be found to have a hormonal imbalance, an underlying genetic problem, uterine abnormalities, or an immune condition known as antiphospholipid syndrome, which causes blood clots in the placenta.
