Rezumat: Miscarriage is the most common complication of early pregnancy. Most of clinically recognized pregnancies (over 15%) end in a miscarriage and, to a certain extent, the average prevalence of women nowadays with one miscarriage is up to 11%. The number of previous miscarriages a woman has suffered is a main determinant of miscarriage risk. This has a considerable effect on the physical and psychological wellbeing of the parturient. Recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) – also referred to as recurrent miscarriage, recurrent spontaneous abortion or habitual abortion – is defined as the failure of two or more clinically recognized pregnancies (intrauterine pregnancy) before 20-24 weeks of gestation (168 days) or with a fetal weight below 500 grams. Recurrent miscarriage is part of the vast majority of discouraging conditions to deal with in the field of reproductive medicine, affecting around 1% of couples trying to conceive, being frustrating for both the couple involved and the physician, since the etiology is frequently unknown and the evidence-based diagnosis and treatment techniques are insufficient. This condition can lead to anxiety, depression, even symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), symptoms that can persist, impacting the quality of life.
Cuvinte cheie: miscarriage, recurrent miscarriage, recurrent pregnancy loss, recurrent spontaneous abortion, habitual abortion, low progesterone.
