This is a very interesting article which is a contradiction of what my fertility specialist told me. A study has concluded that if you have miscarried the liklihood of carrying ahealthy baby to term goes down.
The researchers then followed these women for 10 years to determine the results of subsequent pregnancies.
Results showed that 85 percent of women who did not have miscarriages delivered live babies.
The percentage of live babies in the miscarriage group depended upon how many miscarriages they had. Seventy-four percent of women who had one miscarriage had a subsequent live birth. Sixty-seven percent of women who had two miscarriages and 58 percent of those who had three or more miscarriages, had live births.
Therefore, the presence of miscarriages did play a role in a woman’s chance of having a live baby.
I have had all the tests for recurrent miscarriage and they all came back as normal. I have to admit I was slightly disappointed when they came back normal. A strange reaction you might think, but my thinking was this. “If there is something wrong it can be fixed.” How can they fix a problem when they don’t know what’s causing it? I am battling to even get pregnant. Now I read this article that says my chances of carrying a healthy baby to term are just 58%. That is a really scary statistic.
