Autoimmune disorders: There are numerous autoimmune disorders that can contribute to increased risk of miscarriage. In addition there may be abnormal clotting disorders related to protein C & thrombin. A thorough evaluation with a specialist in autoimmune disorders is recommended to avoid a recurrence. Best of luck.
