Antiphospholipid antibody can also cause recurrent miscarriages. Antiphospholipid syndrome often requires treatment with anticoagulant medication such as heparin to reduce the risk of further episodes of thrombosis and improve the prognosis of pregnancy. As always, speak with your doctor.

In brief: Miscarriage

At 42, there may be many reasons why a fertilized egg does not survive in the uterus.
Failure of the fertilized egg to receive enough sustaining progesterone by the ovary (via the corpus luteum) may cause early miscarriage (prior to ten weeks of pregnancy). Other causes may be discovered by a pelvic ultrasound exam. Ask your OB physician about oral progesterone until week 12 of pregnancy.
