Hi ! Greetings from health care magic
As pregnancy progresses, miscarriage risk decreases. Most estimates state that 80% of miscarriages happen before 12 weeks of pregnancy.Because 80% of miscarriages happen in the first trimester, the overall risk of miscarriage after the first trimester is about 3%.
Thank you

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

A miscarriage can happen anytime , but mostly occurs during the first three months of pregnancy , due to genetic /chromosomal causes .

It can happen in the later months of pregnancy due to infection , fever , uncontrolled blood pressure, autoimmunity and many other causes .
