In brief: Long list
Bad luck is the most common cause meaning there is no clear cause when testing occurs.
Genetic abnormalities, clotting disorders, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, uterine abnormalities, immune system disease and smoking are a few of the causes.

Let me add that about 75% of miscarriages are due to an abnormal number of chromosomes in the pregnancy tissue. Make sure to have the tissue tested next time if you fail again. Get an evaluation after 2 losses. It is true that about 50% of cases are not diagnosed because we do not have genetics of the pregnancy tissue. This is one of our most frustrating problem to treat.

Genetic also called aneuploidy-95% of the time- too much or too little genetic material in the pregnancy and 5% because the parents who may have gene rearrangements 2. Uterine malformations either from birth or develop with age 3. Hormonal abnormalities 4. Infections 5. Clotting or rejection factors.
