Researchers at a British university say the reason some women continually have miscarriages may be from a lack of stem cells in the uterus, or womb.
As many as 25 percent of pregnancies end in miscarriage. About 1 percent of women suffer from three or more in a row, which is the definition of a recurrent miscarriage.
In a comparison of 183 women, the researchers found recurrent miscarriage patients showed several signs of having fewer stem cells in the womb.
