Miscarriage or pregnancy loss is the term used when a woman is not going to succeed in becoming pregnant before a period of 20 weeks of development. Statistics shows that 20% of women who become pregnant end up in a miscarriage status and most of them are during the first 12 weeks. A recurrent miscarriage is when a woman experienced 3 or more than 3 times of pregnancy loss.
Some causes of recurrent miscarriages are genetic defects, hormonal imbalances, irregular uterus shape, and if you have diabetes these can also be a cause for a habitual pregnant loss. When you are also have bad habits such as drinking, smoking and even caffeine, they can be a cause of recurrent miscarriages as well as medicines that can be harmful to pregnancy.
Other causes of recurrent miscarriages is when you have an inefficient cervix. This may lead you to undergo a surgical operation where a surgical stitch will be made around your cervix to help it from expanding in advance.
Some tests may be done to see if you why you are having a recurring miscarriage.
