Miscarriages – Repeated abortions
We use the term repetitive abortions to refer to 2 or more consecutive miscarriages in a woman’s life with the same partner.
Abortion means the spontaneous termination of an intra-uterine pregnancy for which we have evidence of the existence of beta HCG and / or ultrasound. we exclude biochemical pregnancy and extra-uterine pregnancy from the definition.
Fortunately, it affects a small percentage of the population, i.e. 1-3%.
What are the risk factors?
The first factor is age. After 40, the risk of miscarriages is greater. This is because the risk of chromosomal abnormalities increases.
Chromosomal anomalies means anomalies in the number and / or composition of chromosomes (Chromosomes are those genetic structures where our genetic heritage is hidden).
We have observed that after the age of 40 chromosome problems occur more often during conception and divisions.
The stress factor is under discussion.
Environmental pollution and exposure to toxic substances during work can stop a pregnancy.
Endometritis is an important risk factor for an abortion. Cases of late abortions have been confirmed (after the 14th week of pregnancy) due to chronic endometritis.
