Recurrent miscarriage due to poor sperm quality

 

This study "Sperm motility and DNA fragmentation as a cause of recurrent pregnancy loss" discovered an interesting finding of recurrent miscarriage.

The male partner of a couple who experiences recurrent miscarriages has a higher rate of sperm cells with fragmented DNA and significantly poorer sperm motility than control donors with proven fertility.

This highlights the importance of both partners following a preconception care plan for a successful pregnancy and that miscarriage is not necessarily due to a female factor.
