The truth is, sometimes the cause of recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) cannot be found. The good news in these cases is that there’s always a chance that a successful pregnancy happens next time.

There are, however, some health conditions that are known to increase a woman’s chances of miscarrying. Although they are uncommon, the following are some conditions that are known to lead to RPL:

  • Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS)
  • Thrombophilia
  • Genetic problems
  • Problems with your womb
  • Bacterial vaginosis
  • Polycystic ovaries
  • Some lifestyle factors
