I have lost 3 pregnancies. Am I considered a habitual aborter?

Alexander Kofinas M.D.

The answer is yes. Even 2 losses should be enough to trigger proper investigation in an effort to avoid subsequent losses. Also, in women older than 35, even one pregnancy loss is a good enough reason to be evaluated for possible preventable causes, since the risk for a second pregnancy loss in such women is almost 35%. This is very common today and proper consultation should be requested.
