I can get pregnant but can not seem to hold a baby for more than 6 weeks and I have had a healthy baby already but with a different man and I have had every test done on me and everything seems to be fine with me.What do you think the problem could be?

One in two hundred couples

One in two hundred couples will experience two or more consecutive miscarriages. There are five reasons for miscarriage which have been identified:

Cause Percent
Infection 1%
Anatomy abnormal 5-10%
Progesterone level low 20%
Chromosome abnormal
Primary miscarrier (no live births) 7%
Secondary miscarrier (one or more live births) 50%
Immune mechanisms 50%
Unknown 15%

While not all fertility specialists agree, some, like RIA in Los Angelos suggest that one in every 200 couples are too genetically similar to achieve successful pregnancy.

If this is your concern, talk to your specialist about immunological tests that may provide more information about your situation.
