INTRODUCTION

Recurrent Pregnancy Loss (RPL) is defined as three consecutive Pregnancy Loss (PL) prior to 20 weeks of gestation, about 1-2% of women will be affected [1,2]. Recently, the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) has redefined RPL as two or more pregnancy losses [3]. Using this definition, the incidence of RPL is up to 5% of women [1-3]. Different risk factors are associated with RPL, including advanced maternal age, and number of previous miscarriages [1]. Although RPL remains unexplained in about 50% of the cases, gynecological, endocrinological, immuno-hematological and genetical factors have been described.
