Unkown: Every cycle has the same cahnce of a pregnancy. CAreful analysis of cycles reveal that maybe almost 30% of pregancies are lost in very early gestation and go unrecognized. A small prcentage of these will be recognized as a miscarriage. Chances do not increase or decrease. Chance is a random event and is not predictable.
