Non-Immune Causes of Multiple Miscarriages
Potential Reasons for Recurrent Miscarriages
While the immune system can cause miscarriages by malfunctioning and attacking
the embryo or fetus, there are also many non-immune reasons for
multiple miscarriages as well as
chemical pregnancies. There may be
genetic abnormalities within the embryo or fetus, which can follow from these being present
within the mother or father. Conditions within the male may also contribute
to the inability to achieve a successful pregnancy, even after conception,
due to certain specifics of the
sperm male factor. Environmental or medical issues may also play a part, for example if
the mother is exposed to certain
emotional or physical stress, or
previous IVF stimulation protocols themselves may be responsible.
Factors within the mother can of course also result in miscarriage. Some
of these include
blood clotting problems or thrombophilia, and
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
(PCOS) and other endocrine problems.
Poor egg quality, low AMH and
undiagnosed uterine or vaginal infections are also
causes of miscarriages. Any of these can cause complications with implantation or the development
of the embryo or fetus. Effects may be observed at different stages of
pregnancy, which is why it is vital you receive competent medical assistance
not only with your conception but also throughout your pregnancy.
