Can I Have a Successful Pregnancy After a Recurrent Miscarriage


Can I have a successful pregnancy after a recurrent miscarriage?

Many couples with recurrent miscarriage go on to have successful pregnancies.

Once a specific cause has been identified, the treatment for this condition should help for future pregnancies.

However, sometimes, your doctors will not be able to tell you for sure what will happen if you become pregnant again. However, even if they have not found a definite reason for your miscarriages, you still have a good chance (three out of four) of a healthy birth.
