Miscarriage is not all that unusual: According to current estimates, 10 - 15% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage. A significant number of these pregnancies end at such an early stage that the woman is often not even aware that she was pregnant. It is believed that the body terminates a pregnancy automatically if, for example, there is an abnormality in the first division of the fertilized egg. With in-vitro-fertilization, we therefore generally transfer two to three fertilized eggs in order to increase your chances of becoming pregnant. As a matter of principle, if must be noted that at 15 - 30 %, the risk of miscarriage is slightly higher with IVF or ICSI than in the case of a natural pregnancy, which can be explained by the higher average age of IVF patients.
The most common reason known for miscarriages is chromosomal abnormalities – i. e. irregularities in the number or structure of the embryo’s chromosomes. The probability of such anomalies increases significantly as a woman ages, therefore age is an important factor with miscarriages: parallel to the declining rate of natural pregnancies, the risk of miscarriage increases after 35. Other triggers for habitual abortion (repeated miscarriages) also include:
The emergence of human life is a complex process: despite well-advanced diagnostics, it is not always possible to find a single cause of recurrent miscarriages.In our clinics we give you comprehensive advice with regard to the diagnostic and treatment options – always with the aim of creating the optimal conditions for you to have a child.
If you have suffered recurrent miscarriages while attempting to fall pregnant naturally, fertility treatment may be the solution – provided that the diagnosis leads to a clear result. Please note that a miscarriage may not necessarily have a single cause. An unhealthy lifestyle, smoking and passive smoking as well as stress and drug consumption can also increase the risk of abortion. Our experienced doctors will discuss the options and limits of fertility treatment with you as part of the diagnosis and make treatment recommendations.
