New research suggests that women with a miscarriage may have a higher chance of dying early, especially from heart problems.
Miscarriage is when a pregnancy ends on its own before 20 weeks. Common reasons for miscarriage include genetic abnormalities in the fetus, hormonal problems, infections, and issues with the uterus or cervix.
The research revealed that 25.6% of the women had experienced at least one pregnancy ending in miscarriage.
Having multiple miscarriages or experiencing a miscarriage at a young age increases the chances of early death. The research showed a 19% higher risk of premature mortality for women with a miscarriage and a 48% increased risk of heart-related deaths.
More research is needed to understand why miscarriage is linked to future health risks for women and to explore the underlying causes in more detail.
