Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic and sorrry for your loss.

the results on the scan indicate that the miscarriage was complete, there are no remaining products of conception.
There are different reasons that a miscarriage can occur and it can also vary according the trimester that the miscarriage occurs.
In early pregnancy it is often due to genetic abnormalities.Other possible causes include:infection, enviromental hazards,incompetent cervix, hormonal problems, smoking , alcohol use,diabetes,some medication, inadequate nutrition, kidney disease, heart disease.
You may want consider speaking to your doctor to determine if he or she knows the reason for the miscarriage, in some women the exact reason is never known.

I hope this helps and wish you the best

There are many causes for early pregnancy miscarriages, like genetic anomalies, hormonal imbalances and anomalies of the process of fertilization and implantation. It is possible to know the cause of abortion by analyzing the products of conception. Blood tests can also be performed on the couple to know the possible causes like incompatibilities, genetic nature and so on. You should consult a geneticist for advice. Please follow up with your gynecologist. Good luck.
