"Failure to launch": No, this isn't about the comedy movie of the same name but your "misconceived" attempts to produce a "natural miscarriage".

Possible causes include autoimmune conditions like antiphospholipid antibodies, blood clotting disorders, low egg supply, problems in the uterus like fibroids or a uterine septum, hormonal problems, male or female genetic problems. Get checked out.
