Miscarriage – 10 Facts to Know

Overview of Miscarriage

Miscarriage is the sudden loss of a pregnancy before the women reach the 20th week. It is estimated that around 10 percent to 20 percent of people experience a miscarriage. However, the exact figure could be higher as many cases happen so early during pregnancy that women do not realize that they are pregnant. Most miscarriages happen because the fetus is not developing properly. While this is a quite common experience, most of us might feel traumatic when it occurs. [1]
