I : I am a little confused about a "rip" in your uterus that would Prohibit a fetus to attach and grow. Could you be more specific. Were you told there was an abnormality of your uterus or possibly a fibroid tumor or other lesion or possibly some scarring. I will need more information before i can answer this question. Were you told by a doctor that this would be a problem for you in the future? Please provide more info. Thanks in advance. ...Read more

Many........: Many miscarriages are not even known. All women can miscarry! And it can happen again. Causes should be checked for by the OB/GYN doc, such as anti-cardiolipin disease. My wife had two, after two successful pregnancies. Then came two beautiful fraternal twin daughters. You CAN remain quite fertile after a miscarriage, although it can happen again! ...Read more

Is 6 1/2 weeks to early for an ultrasound? I am worried about having another miscarriage.

Unless: You are having problems with this pregnancy or your obstetrician wants an ultrasound for other reasons i would wait.

I suffered 2 miscarriages in the last yr have 2 kds im 34 having PCO & my husband have abnormalities in the sperms just 1% r good can that lead miscar?

Factor:2- your husband has only 1% normal sperms, which is very low. He might have genetic basis of this problem. Hence all these issues need further investigations. ...Read more
