By reviewing and investigating your situation, Dr Alison Gee can help you to determine the cause of miscarriage and the best way to move forward.

Miscarriage can be the result of a number of factors that may include age, genetic factors, anatomical factors, endocrine, thrombotic, immunological and lifestyle factors. Miscarriage is a common occurrence, in fact it’s estimated that around 10 – 20 per cent of pregnancies end in miscarriage. Miscarriage is defined as the loss of pregnancy prior to 20 weeks gestation.

The cause of a miscarriage can be determined in around 50 to 60 per cent of cases. Your risk of miscarriage can increase with age, if you are overweight, or underweight, or if you have experienced previous pregnancy loss.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to pinpoint the cause in every single case of miscarriage.
