Recurrent Pregnancy Loss Research
Miscarriage is the most common complication of early pregnancy, occurring in 10-40% of all pregnancies. Recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) is a disease distinct from infertility, defined as the spontaneous loss of two or more pregnancies and affects as many as 5% of couples attempting to build their families. There are many known causes of miscarriage including genetic, uterine, and circulatory disorders, however the majority of patients with RPL remain without definite answers as to the cause of their pregnancy losses.
