No: Endometriosis doesn't come from having a miscarriage. The two are largely unrelated. In fact, endometriosis is most associated with difficulty getting pregnant. Recurrent miscarriages do occur but the odds are in your favor against this. ...Read more

No miscarriage: Having a tilt to one's uterus (forward, backward or midline) doesn't affect infertility or miscarriage at all. Sometimes women with retroverted uteri (tilted back), also have endometriosis. Endometriosis can cause infertility but does not increase risk for miscarriage. There's nothing to "do" about a tilted uterus, it's a normal variation. Best of luck and thank you for using healthtap! ...Read more

Auto-immune antibodies (antiphospholipid antibodies or apa) are more common in women with endometriosis even with no losses. Apa cause some cases of recurrent miscarriage. Need big studies to find if linked or not. ...Read more
