Chances of miscarriage week by week


Hi all, i know they say that when you get to 12 weeks your chances of miscarriage reduce dramatically but does anyone know where you can find week by week stats, i.e chances after 6 wks, 7wks, 8wks etc. Thanks girlies! x

Dont think there is anything like that, cus theres no set rules, and as much as it's more common before 12 weeks, it can happen anytime, so don't think they like to make charts like that, it would make some people worry more!!

I found this;

The statistics regarding miscarriage vary widely depending on the source. Here are some of the basic numbers.

Almost 20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage, with the majority occurring during the first 12 weeks.

There is a 75% chance of miscarriage in weeks 1-2 of pregnancy, when you do not know you are pregnant.

There is a 10% chance of miscarriage in weeks 3-6 and this number drops to 5% during weeks 6-12.

During the second trimester the chance of miscarriage drops again to 3%. After you’ve reached 20 weeks gestation, it is no longer considered a miscarriage.

For repeat miscarriage the statistic are as follows:

If you have had a miscarriage during your first pregnancy, your chances of another miscarriage are 10-13%.

If you have had one or more live births and one miscarriage your chance of another miscarriage is around 10%.

There is a 40% chance of a repeat miscarriage if you have had two pregnancies and two miscarriages.

The chance of multiple miscarriages is lower, at around 13%, if you have had one or more live births.

If you have had three pregnancies and three miscarriages there is a 60% chance you will miscarry again. If you have had four miscarriages with no live births your chances of a healthy pregnancy drop to 0-5%.

Thanks flatshoes, thats great. I know you can never be 100% until baby is here, and my 12 week scan will reassure me loads but got 5 weeks until that! thanks for your help xxx

Maybe its not true - there are so many different versions!

I don't really think stats matter much for individuals! If you have a 1 in 10000000 chance of something but it happens to YOU then stats mean nothing!

We should just all concentrate on ourselves!

These are only average stats Lizzie - dont forget there are unfortunately women out there who have huge numbers of miscarriages- into double figures etc who have health problems to name just one potential variable which always skew (sp?) the figures.
