There is now firm evidence that recurrent miscarriages are linked to fibroids. Researchers have discovered that by removing the fibroids that distort the womb from the inside, the risk for miscarriage can be dramatically reduced to zero in the second trimester of pregnancy.
The study has been published online in Human Reproduction, a leading reproductive medicine journal in Europe. Professor Tin-Chiu Li and his team conducted the study over a 20 year period at the recurrent miscarriage clinic at the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals (Sheffield, UK). The results have given better insight into the prevalence of fibroids in victims of recurrent miscarriages.
