I'm 35 had a miscarriage in June at 10wks -2 kids living (teens)2 abortions in 99&2000. I'm pregnant again (3 weeks) what chance of miscarrying again?

Maybe 30-40%: Overall, I give over 30 year old pts about a 30% chance of miscarriage( as a round number, AND better to overestimate). Remember, miscarriage is natures own process of clearing not nl pregnancies... so it is a natural thing. Not fun, I grant you. But, although your previous miscarriage ups the chances a little, you still have a majority chance of a successful pregnancy.. Good luck! ...Read more

If not, then early intervention and continued follow-up may also build a diagnosis and a more directly beneficial plan. ...Read more

22 y/o got pregn 8 months after marriage..blighted ovum at 6 weeks does it prove i can bear children?

Common.: Blighted ovum is a fertilized egg that is not developing properly. This is more common than we know because this results in a miscarriage that some women will interpret as a period. There is no need to worry or be concerned unless this is a repetitive occurrence. It is often not looked into unless occurs more than 3-5 times. Try to relax and not worry too much about this. Good luck. ...Read more
