Chance of miscarriage after seeing the fetal heart beat

Dear Dr. Amy,

Two years ago I had a chemical miscarriage. In Apr. 05 I had a missed abortion at 7 wks. A D&C was done.

I am now pregnant again, and I am about 10wks. I hardly have any pregnancy symptoms. I had an ultrasound done on Oct. 5/05 which showed everything was ok and there was a heartbeat. After seeing a heartbeat on the ultrasound what are the chances of a pregnancy ending in miscarriage?

Marie

Dear Marie,

The chance of miscarriage in any pregnancy is 20%. This drops down to 10% after seeing the fetal heart beat on ultrasound, regardless of whether or not you have pregnancy symptoms.

Sincerely,
Amy
