Miscarriages

A miscarriage, also known as pregnancy loss, is the natural death of an embryo or foetus before it is able to survive independently (generally as late as 20-24 weeks of pregnancy).

Miscarriage may be complete or incomplete, which means some tissue remains in the uterus. Treatment will depend on the amount of tissue remaining in the uterus, which may need to be removed surgically or medically.
