Abstract :

Human reproduction is considered as the most inefficient event as approximately 15–20% of human pregnancies end in miscarriage. There are numerous factors that may cause RM, but the exact cause of RM is difficult to ascertain. One of the major risk factor for miscarriage is genetic abnormalities. Thus cytogenetic study should be offered to all couples with more than two miscarriages especially in idiopathic cases. Hence the aim of the present study was to evaluate the need for genetic studies among couples with recurrent abortion. Cytogenetic analysis was carried out in 27 couples with two or more pregnancy loss as study subjects and 10 healthy couples without any chronic illness were also selected as control for this study. The results were correlated with various demographic, clinical and lifestyle aspects of couples with miscarriage. Changing lifestyle, timely marriage as well as planned and safe pregnancy can minimize the risk of miscarriage to some extent.
