Genetic cause of abortion: This is another alteration that brings dire consequences in the pregnancy. The Recurrent Spontaneous Abortion (RSA) is the loss of the fetus by natural motifs and happens in the 10% or 15% of pregnancies.
It manifests itself usually before 20 weeks of gestation. It is diagnosed as such when it is verified that there are three or more spontaneous abortions recorded clinically.
Epidemiological data indicate that the possibility of a new abortion after the first is 24%, but rises to 40% after four consecutive miscarriages.
It is significant to note that the AER affects to 0.34% of pregnant women. The genetic study is necessary in these cases (Eclampsia, HELLP Syndrome, Eclampsia and Recurrent Spontaneous Abortion) lasts about three weeks, and requires samples of blood or epithelial cells.
The results should indicate the presence or absence of the mutations described in the genes-F5, F2 and MTHFR. It is advisable to perform this test if the patient or their family members have a history of pre-eclampsia or eclampsia; if you have experienced two or more miscarriages in a row; or to confirm a clinical diagnosis.
