Causes & Side Effects

At our clinic we can do a whole range of investigations working through your physiology, hormones and finally your immune system. The tests will enable us to establish exactly what is causing you to miscarry and what treatment we can best provide you with.

It is useful if you bring any test results and documentation that you may have had already.

Miscarriage some of the possible causes...

Hormonal - 20% (Causes & Treatments)

  • Polycystic ovary syndrome – this disease can cause infertility and frequently affects success of even conceiving. This syndrome together with a raised hormone level luteinising hormone (LH) results is an increased risk of miscarriage.
  • Hormone ‘deficiency’ – in pregnancies ending in miscarriage, sometimes the levels of a hormone called progesterone are found to be low. This is thought to be the result rather than the cause of the miscarriage. Progesterone supplements do not appear to increase the likelihood of an ongoing pregnancy.
  • Thyroid
  • Prolactin
