Absolutely not: Usually related to a genetic imperfection in a fertilized egg= "blighted ovum". I suggest a GYN exam and hormone level check including thyroid function and blood suager levels.

Some basics: An estimated 3rd of conceptions do not reach the womb & attach.Studies on miscarried tissue show a 3rd have defects in their chromosomes that would prevent normal life. If a woman has 3 or more miscarriages genetic studies including chromosomes may identify a problem triggering such events. But a simple miscarriage just means one known pregnancy didn't work out. It doesn't mean you are infertile
