Abstract

This chapter focuses on psychological bearings of recurrent miscarriages. Available current literature indicates that recurrent miscarriages can produce profound psychological effects on the subject. Psychological responses seem to be the effect rather than the cause of recurrent miscarriage. As a result, providing systematic psychological support helps in getting better results with other treatment modalities in subjects with recurrent miscarriages. Recurrent spontaneous miscarriage has profound psychological effects even on the male partner. Psychological functioning, sexual satisfaction, and erectile function are impaired in these men. Most studies into psychological bearings of recurrent spontaneous miscarriages paid attention to the personality characteristics of the patients only and excluded other psychological factors. This chapter covers the immunology, psychology and recurrent pregnancy loss, providing psychological support to subjects with recurrent pregnancy loss, and components of support giving that may be helpful.
