Recurrent Abortion

Recurrent abortion can have several physical and emotional implications for a woman. At Definite Cure, we help improve your chances of conceiving and enjoying a healthy, stress free pregnancy.



Recurrent abortion, also known as recurrent pregnancy loss is defined as the loss of pregnancy more than two times. When the pregnancy loss or abortion is recognized on an ultrasound before the mother has symptoms of a miscarriage, it is classified as a clinically recognized pregnancy. This is when the pregnancy ends involuntarily before the completion of 20 weeks in most cases. In some cases, only pregnancy tissue may be identified after the abortion.


In recurrent abortions, women may or may not experience the symptoms of a miscarriage. The common symptoms of a miscarriage are as follows:

  • Bleeding or spotting
  • Severe back pain
  • Whitish pink mucus discharge from the vagina
  • Painful contractions that are about 5-20 minutes apart.
  • Passing of tissue from the vagina

There are several causes of recurrent absorption, including:

  • Chromosomal and other genetic abnormalities: In this case, the abnormality may arise in the egg or sperm or even in the early stages of the embryo. Usually, in such clinically recognized pregnancies, it may end within 12 weeks of the gestation period. Close to 50% of mothers do not even know that they had conceived.
  • Maternal age: Older women often experience recurrent absorption as the quality of the egg is poor in these conditions. Even if the irregularity in the egg or sperm is smaller in the parents, it can amplify in the embryo, leading to a miscarriage.
  • Abnormality in the uterus: Issues like inflammation or reduced blood supply in the uterus can lead to recurrent abortion. In some cases, the woman is born with a uterus that is irregularly shaped or may develop abnormalities over time.

Other factors include:

  • Poor immunity in the mother
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Diseases like thyroid or diabetes
  • Abnormal blood clotting

Smoking, alcohol consumption or drug use.


recurrent abortion specialist will take a detailed medical and family history. Then a physical examination is performed. The following tests are conducted after that:

  • Karyotype analysis to understand chromosomal or genetic abnormalities.
  • The uterus is evaluated using ultrasound, MRI, Xray or hysteroscopy.
  • The presence of certain antibodies in the body will be checked using blood tests.
  • Hormone function is tested.
  • Ovarian reserve tests are performed.

Recurrent absorption treatment depends largely on the causal factors. The good news is that the chances of pregnancy are high with proper care and treatment. The following methods are used commonly:

  • Genetic counselling – this is recommended in case a chromosomal abnormality has been detected. IVF may be recommended in some cases to biopsy the embryo before implanting it into the uterus. This ensures that the genetic abnormality has not been passed into the embryo.
  • Surgical correction- Surgery may be recommended in case of abnormalities in the uterus.
  • Medication: Oral medication is prescribed for underlying health issues like diabetes or thyroid dysfunction.
