Definition of Miscarriage, multiple

Miscarriage, multiple: More than one miscarriage for a woman. In multiple miscarriages, there is about a 5 percent chance that one member of the couple is carrying a chromosome translocation responsible for the miscarriages. Other causes of multiple miscarriage include Rh incompatibility, continuing exposure to teratogens (agents that can injure the fetus), and physical problems in the mother that make it difficult for her to carry a fetus to term.
