Recurrent Pregnancy loss
Historically defined as three consecutive pregnancy losses prior to 20 weeks from the last menstrual period. However, present-day medicine tells us that a woman that has 2 consecutive losses is at risk for another, and requires investigation into the cause. Dr. Demasio further expands this definition to include women with a poor reproductive history such as recurrent premature deliveries, recurrent episodes of pre-eclampsia (high blood pressure and protein in the urine affecting pregnancy), and stillbirths, all require investigation.
