Recurrent Pregnancy Loss (Miscarriage)

Recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) means a woman has 2 or more miscarriages before 20 weeks of pregnancy. There are a variety of potential causes of RPL – including genetic and physical conditions from either partner – and patients who suffer from this condition deserve a thorough and comprehensive workup to try to determine the underlying reason for their circumstance.

Genetic-related infertility

Couples experiencing infertility may have genetic conditions that makes it difficult to conceive without assistance, such as chromosomal abnormalities and gene mutations. Genetic issues can impact both men and women.

Other lifestyle & health infertility factors

For both men and women, factors that affect fertility can include obesity, smoking, drug use, excessive alcohol use or exposure to certain toxins. These can often be improved with lifestyle changes. Others factors may include conditions such as autoimmune disorders that may be treatable with medications.

Fertility testing of both partners is the first step

Understanding the underlying causes of infertility is crucial for effective diagnosis and treatment. If you are having difficulty conceiving, we can help.

The first step is determining what causes infertility in your situation. Fertility tests for both partners often pinpoint a reason for a couple’s inability to conceive on their own. The good news is that in many cases, infertility causes can be successfully treated resulting in a healthy child
