What are the chances of a second miscarriage due to chromosome abnormality?

What are the chances of a second miscarriage due to chromosome abnormality?

Dependsonabnormality: Actually depends on where the abnormality came from (parent or not). If it is pre-existing in either parent, chances of recurrence can be as high as 100% in a fusion chromosome between the X chromosome and a non-X chromosome.

If parents' karyotyping is normal, what are the chances for recurrent early miscarriages due to chromosomal problems in fetus? Pls answer as clearly

Ans: There is always a possibility of a mutation. This cannot be predicted. However just because on the outside you are normal does not mean you do not carry a recessive gene. You and your partner can have gene mapping. But again remember thecwayvthe chromosomes line up is chance.

My HCG levels are slowly rising but not doubling every 2 days. If I don't miscarry, will my baby have health issues due to chromosome problems?

My HCG levels are slowly rising but not doubling every 2 days. If I don't miscarry, will my baby have health issues due to chromosome problems?

No: Your HCG level should increase by at least 50% in 48 hours in a viable pregnancy. It doesn't always double in 48 hours. A rise greater than 50% but less than double doesn't mean that your baby has health issues or chromosome problems. Best wishes! ...Read more
