Pregnancy Loss

 

  • Of all pregnancies, 20-25% end in miscarriage; 75% of these in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.

  • Giving progesterone to women who are spotting and/or suffered from previous miscarriages early in pregnancy can increase the live birth rate up to 15%.

  • About one half of cases of early pregnancy loss are caused by a random event in which the embryo receives an abnormal number of chromosomes.
