Diagnosis after a miscarriage
Miscarriages (spontaneous abortions) are the most frequent complication during pregnancy. 10 to 20% of all confirmed pregnancies end prematurely, usually as early miscarriages before the end of the twelfth week of pregnancy.
There can be a number of reasons for a miscarriage: the most common cause is the result of genetic aberrations (so-called chromosomal anomalies). Miscarriages can also be caused by anatomical or auto-immunological factors. Hormonal (endocrinological) factors or bleeding disorders (coagulopathy, haemostaseological factors) may also be present. And there are also several external factors which may contribute to a miscarriage.
Depending on your individual case, we therefore initiate a wide variety of investigations in order to discover the causes, such as a chromosome analysis or an endoscopic examination of the uterine cavity in order to exclude the possibility of changes in the Uterus. Because there is such a wide range of possible causes, however, no single specific cause can be found for up to 60% of couples.
On the basis of these findings and results we shall advise you regarding treatment possibilities and will discuss the next steps with you.
