- pregnancy loss may be a result of several factors like genetic abnormalities, chromosomal defects other random events. The ovum, sperm, or the early embryo might also be accountable for these abnormalities. With an increasing maternal age, the risk of miscarriage also increases, which may occur because of poor egg quality resulting in chromosomal or genetic abnormalities. In certain cases, either of the parents may have mutations in their genes, however, the offspring could be more severely affected ultimately resulting in miscarriage.
- Any abnormality present in the uterus may also lead to miscarriage. The reasons may be poor blood supply or infection in the uterus. Some women have a congenitally abnormally shaped uterus or might develop abnormalities in their uterus over time.
- Hormonal imbalances that commonly occurs in diseases like thyroid and diabetes may also influence pregnancy loss. Anomalies in a mother’s blood clotting process are also one of the reasons for pregnancy loss.
- Environmental factors, occupational factors and stress do not seem to be related to pregnancy loss.
