Recurrent Miscarriage

New Therapies for Recurrent Pregnancy Loss

Losing a pregnancy to miscarriage is emotionally devastating for expectant mothers and their families, and with each consecutive miscarriage, the pain is more intense. You are not alone. In fact, 1 out of every 5 pregnancies ends before the sixth month of gestation. There is hope. Thanks to new therapies, many women who have suffered recurrent miscarriages go on to carry a pregnancy to term successfully. Our fertility specialists at Palm Beach Fertility Center are working to improve statistics by providing comprehensive care in evaluating and managing women with recurrent pregnancy loss.

What is Recurrent Pregnancy Loss?

Recurrent pregnancy loss is defined as 3 or more consecutive spontaneous miscarriages occurring during the first 22 weeks of gestation. Each pregnancy is different; therefore, it is essential to consult a physician if you think you have experienced any of the following:

  • Any pregnancy loss after three months of gestation
  • Two consecutive miscarriages during the first three months of pregnancy
  • Pregnancy loss after age 35

What Factors Affect Miscarriage?

Some common factors causing recurrent miscarriages include chromosomal abnormalities, endocrine dysfunction, immunologic conditions, and structural abnormalities. Many other factors can cause pregnancy loss, and understanding the issues which increase your chance of losing a pregnancy can often help you to overcome them. With more than 25 years in practice, our staff is committed to help couples overcome their fertility struggles after recurrent miscarriages.

Depending on the cause of recurrent pregnancy loss, one or more of the following therapies may be beneficial:

  • Corrective surgery
  • Immunologic therapy
  • Hormonal therapy
  • Antibiotic therapy
  • Anticoagulant therapy
  • Genetic counseling

Overcoming Recurrent Pregnancy Loss

Our center has had great success with a new study using existing medications, including aspirin, heparin, and progesterone. After appropriate evaluation and treatment, over 85% of women with recurrent miscarriages have gone on to carry their pregnancy to term and give birth successfully.
