Despite countless breakthroughs in medical science, we still do not understand why some pregnancies will end in tragedy. For most of us, having a child of our own is the most fulfilling experience of our lives and all of us can imagine the desperation and sadness of parents who lose a baby. Miscarriage is the commonest complication of pregnancy, only 50% of pregnancies reach the stage of a recognised pregnancy with an embryo being lost even before you miss your period.
Whilst the most common cause for any single miscarriage or unsuccessful IVF cycle is a random genetic abnormality in the embryo, the incidence of which increases with advancing maternal age, the rationale for investigation is either to confirm or to exclude the presence of an underlying treatable cause for pregnancy loss.
