Repeated Miscarriages are one of the most frustrating experiences a couple can have when trying for a baby regardless of whether conception takes place naturally or via assisted reproduction. If miscarriages occur after a natural conception, patients often do not read too much into it and keep trying a few times before they consult their doctors. In IVF treatments, if there are recurrent miscarriages, then the IVF specialist will be able to notice this earlier on and usually after a single miscarriage following treatment, additional tests will be required to rule out certain possibilities. Recurrent miscarriages can be treated in most cases and patients can have a healthy pregnancy to a full term.
One of the first things that needs to be addressed is the time frame in which miscarriages are taking place. The cause and severity of the problem may differ depending on whether your miscarriages are occuring earlier on during your pregnancy (within the first trimester) or later on.
Management of the problem requires an effective testing and diagnosis as well as appropriate measures to make sure the risk of a miscarriage can be minimized based on what the problem might be.
