Recurrent Pregnancy Loss Treatment

Recurrent Pregnancy Loss, often called recurrent miscarriage, is defined as the loss of three consecutive pregnancies before 20 weeks gestation. Recurrent Miscarriages can be a heartbreaking experience as each longed for pregnancy brings with it hope and anxiety

Why are we experiencing fetal loss?

In majority of the cases, the reason for the pregnancy loss can be attributed to the chromosomes of the fetus, which cannot be repaired and these pregnancies will almost always result in a miscarriage. The nature of such loss results in many couples choosing not to seek immediate help as they are able to conceive.

However, in around 10%-15% of the couples, the reasons causing RPL are treatable with the right team of experts who know the correct investigations to be done and provide specialised medical treatment and psychological support needed during this tough period.

Moreover, it is important to meet a specialist to determine the presence of any underlying causes of the miscarriage, since infertility may be experienced as both delayed conception and recurrent loss.
