What are the chances of me having a miscarriage in the first 12 weeks pregnancy?

Miscarriage is the most common pregnancy problem, but the vast majority occur very early on, often before you even know you are pregnant.

At six weeks, approximately 1 in 6 pregnancies, or 15 per cent, will end in miscarriage.

At eight weeks, the odds of the pregnancy ending in a miscarriage have fallen dramatically to around 1 in 16 pregnancies, or 6 per cent.

After 12 weeks of pregnancy, only 1 per cent of pregnancies end in miscarriage.
