Risk of early miscarriage

Postby anonymous2013 on Sun Mar 10, 2013 8:23 pm

Hi, I've read very different statistics on the risk of miscarriage before 12 weeks. Please could you confirm the risk of miscarriage/threatened abortion between 7 and 12 weeks? Thank you!

The risk of miscarriage is 1 in 5 before 12-14 weeks
Following a reassuring scan result, this risk falls to about 1:20
If you are worried, ask for a referall to an early pregnancy unit for a scan, which will show the heartbeat at around 6 weeks
