Miscarriage may be associated with an increased risk of early death, researchers have said.
The BMJ published a study suggesting that this risk is particularly acute for those who have experienced repeated miscarriages, especially ones that occurred early on in a woman’s life.
US-based researchers said that women who had experienced a miscarriage were 19% more likely to die prematurely. They pointed out that a miscarriage “could be an early marker of future health risk in women.”
The authors of the paper hoped to see if there was any link between miscarriage and a risk of death
