Recurrent miscarriage or recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) is the occurence of 3 or more pregnancies that end in a miscarriage.
This situation can be extremely distressing for a couple, especially if they have been through the IVF process to conceive.
There are several reasons that this may happen and, here at Jessop Fertility, we have a special clinic to help those who have this problem. Couples may undergo tests to try and determine the cause of the pregnancy loss. We may then be able to attempt correction and help you proceed to a normal term pregnancy. Your GP or consultant will normally refer you to this clinic.
Recurrent miscarriage can be caused by a number of problems such as a chromosomal disorder, an anatomical condition (such as a uterine or cervical abnormality) or immune factors. Your doctor will be able to assess via blood tests and possible examinations what may be affecting your chances of carrying a pregnancy to term.
