      Probably due to chromosomal abnormalities in early pregnancy,
      extra chromosome, missing gene
    • Recurrent Miscarriage (more than one)
      Less likely to be due to RANDOM chromosomal abnormality in the embryo
      Structural problems with uterus
      Blood clotting disorder
      Identifiable chromosomal disorder
      Hormonal imbalance
      Immune system malfunction
    • Stillbirth

      Causes:
      Cervical weakness
