    Why do I keep having miscarriages?

    I am 18 and I was just wondering if I need to see a gynaecologist because I have had more than 3 miscarriages.

    There are a number of factors that can contribute to you having repeated miscarriages - examples are but not limited to the following conditions.
    Chromosomal issues
    Uterine abnormalities
    Hormone Imbalance
    Immunization Problems ( this is when your body sees the growing pregnancy as a foreign body)
    Maternal Illness
    Lifestyle factors - smoking, alcohol, drugs etc.
    It is not useful to speculate as to what if anything is contributing to your specific situation. You need your Dr. to refer you to a specialist for investigations.
    The good news is that even after more than one miscarriage your chance of having a healthy pregnancy is still good. With testing and possibly treatment if required you can bring down the risks of a future loss. Also even with investigations occasionally no cause can be found..
