More than ten percent of clinical pregnancies end in miscarriage. Recurrent miscarriages (RM), defined as three or more consecutive miscarriages, is experienced by 1–2% of couples that try to conceive. Since the prevalence of RM is higher than what would be expected by probability alone, it is likely to indicate specific aetiologies in affected women. Known causes include fetal genetic abnormalities, uterine abnormalities, antiphospholipid syndrome and thrombophilic disorders. However, in more than 50% of cases, no cause is identified.

Increasing evidence suggests that some women may experience RM when ‘super-receptive’ endometrium allows embryos of low viability to implant, presenting as a clinical pregnancy before miscarrying.
