Fertility Dr: While miscarriages are not common (15%), about 5% of women will have at least 2 consecutive miscarriages while only 1% experience 3 or more. This is why it is so important that if you have had 2 losses or more you should talk to an infertility specialist ASAP who can begin looking into the possible miscarriage causes. Problems could be anatomic, hormonal, genetic or immunologic.
