Miscarriages can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'worrying' to 'life-threatening'. Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.
Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose miscarriages, we could:
Have you had any miscarriages?
Possible responses:→ None / don't know
→ Probably, or too early to be sure
→ Yes, early in pregnancy
→ Yes, one later than second month of pregnancy
→ Two or more after second month

Submucous fibroids are the type that most commonly cause significant problems; even small tumors located in or bulging into the uterine cavity may cause heavy bleeding, anemia, pain, infertility or miscarriage.

Anorexia or starvation causes difficulties in conceiving and carrying a baby to term.
