You are probably worrying that you may have miscarriage again if you get pregnant. Most women does not have problem getting pregnant after miscarriage and most carry their pregnancy to full-term. A minority of them may experience recurrent miscarriages.
Most miscarriages which occur in the early part of your pregnancy are caused by chromosomal problems within the fetus. After your egg and sperm meet, numerous changes occur before a fetus can be formed. Mistakes in the chromosomes can happen resulting in miscarriage. Usually these chromosomal abnormalities are caused by random errors and are non-recurrent. Most women are able to have healthy pregnancy after miscarriage. In rare cases. the chromosomal abnormalities are passed on to the fetus by one of the parents. In this case, the woman will continue to have recurrent miscarriages until she or her partner is treated.
