Strong Link Between Miscarriage, Maternal Age & Pregnancy History
As per researchers and studies, among women aged 25-29 years, the risk of miscarriage was found to be 10% (lowest) and rose rapidly after 30, and reached 53% in women aged >= 45. There is also a strong recurrence risk of miscarriage with an age-adjusted ratio. After one miscarriage, the risk increased by half, after two, the risk doubled, and after three consecutive miscarriages, the risk was four times greater. Previous pregnancy complications also predicted a higher risk of miscarriage. Additionally, women who themselves were born small for gestational age also had an increased risk of miscarriage.
