Is is beacause of numeric abnormalities or structural abnormalities..i am so worried..and i am 22 years old..pls answer me
Thanks for the query to ATD for an opinion,
The chromosomal analysis of the missed abortus indicated a chromosomal anomaly and not a structural anomaly which was incompatible with life and hence there was a missed abortion. It is suggested that you both as a couple should undergo a karyotyping as well and look for any chromosomal aberrations. If detected then the best would be to seek a genetic counsellor's opinion regarding your future issues.
The foetus had numeric abnormality and translocational aberration in chromosomes incompatible with life and hence you had missed abortion.
I hope i have answered your query,
Wishing you good health,
