What Causes The M C

I'm wondering when a m/c caused by a chromosonal abnormality will occur? I've heard that a m/c due to LPD will occur early. What does early mean?

Though there can be other reasons most 1st trimester (before 12 weeks) happen because of a random chromosonal error-when you think how complicated the process of a baby being formed is unfortunately there is alot of "room for error" and lots can go wrong as all the cells are dividing etc. When the miscarriage is for this reason it is very unlikely to reoccur as it is a "random" accident in the process. 1 in 4 pregnancies miscarry and this is the most common cause-though there can be other causes which tend to account for recurrent miscarriages more. I would say a miscarriage due to chromosonal abnormality would occur in the 1st trimester-though there are other chromosonal abnormalities that are different such as Downs Syndrome which don't cause miscarriage and others that cause late miscarriage/stillbirth-but I would say the kind you are referring to are the 1st trimester miscarriages. I'm not sure about LPD but I would guess they would be early as would involve the baby not implanting properly in the first place so within 4-6 weeks, but I am not sure about that at all that's just a guess I'm afraid. LPD from what I have heard tends to be responsible for failure to conceive as much as it is for early losses as implantation can't happen at all if there's not enought time between ovulation and when Af is due to start. Best wishes-hope some of that made sense! :-)
