ecurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) is defined as three or more . spontaneous, consecutive pregnancy losses occurnng before the foetus is capable of external life. Generally, a pregnancy loss is defined to be any natural abortion that occurs before a gestational age of 20 weeks or a foetal weight of 500 gm is attained. The investigation and therapy for the couple with recurrent abortion depend on the history and examination. Investigation should begin after two first-trimester losses or only one second­ trimester abortion. Of all abortions, 85% occur in the first trimester; the occurrence of a single second-trimester abortion should alert the clinician to suspect a uterine cause (March & Mishell, 1997). Numerous studies have evaluated the rates of suspected etiological factors in recurrent pregnancy loss (Stray-Pedersen & Stray-Pedersen, 1984; Harger et al., 1983). At least one etiologic factor was identified in 56% to 68% of couples and the rate of• uterine abnormalities ranged from 15% to 27% in these studies (Keltz et al., 1997).
