Recurrent pregnancy loss

Home » Pregnancy » Recurrent pregnancy loss
Recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) is defined as three or more consecutive miscarriages with the same partner before pregnancy week 20.

The cause may be genetic, immunological, hormonal or due to uterine malformations, although the etiology is often unknown.

This condition is very frustrating for the patients.

Laboratory and genetic testing, ultrasound examinations and hysteroscopy are used as diagnostic tools for RPL.

If the cause of RPL is identified, the treatment may be by medicaments or by hysteroscopic surgery.
