Miscarriage or loss of the pregnancy is a scary time for any mother. The typical symptoms of miscarriage include pelvic pain or cramping, vaginal bleeding or spotting. Sometimes there are no symptoms at all.

Early pregnancy loss happens in about 10% of pregnancies. Half of the time, early pregnancy loss is a result of a genetic or chromosomal problem that does not allow the embryo to grow properly.

In almost every case, miscarriage is not a woman’s fault. Miscarriage usually is a random event. Working, exercising, stress, arguments, having sex, or having used birth control pills before getting pregnant do not cause miscarriage.
Losing a pregnancy can cause sadness and grief. For many women, emotional healing takes longer than physical healing. And your feelings of grief may differ from those of your partner.

Pregnancy loss in the first trimester usually is a one-time event. Most women who have an early pregnancy loss go on to have successful pregnancies. Repeated miscarriages are rare.
When two or more miscarriages happen, testing can be done to try to find a cause. Even if no cause is found, most women go on to have successful pregnancies even after repeated miscarriages.
