A miscarriage is the unintentional loss of pregnancy within the first 20 weeks of gestation. It is the most common type of pregnancy loss, and about 10-25% of pregnancies end in miscarriage. Miscarriages are most commonly caused by a genetic problem with the fetus or with the uterus or cervix, or a chronic disease such as polycystic ovary syndrome.  Signs include vaginal spotting, fluid and/or tissue passing from the vagina, and abdominal pain or cramping.
