If a miscarriage is most often the result of chromosonal abnormalities would it be wise to have genetic testing done the next time you become pregnant?

Many women miscarry, as many as one in four, but it is usually a one off and they will go on to have a healthy baby. Providing you don't keep miscarrying (and there are many reasons for this beside a chromosomal abnormality) don't worry about it. If you do repeatedly miscarry you may be referred for genetic testing, but that is just one of the tests which will be done.

Down syndrome is caused by a genetic abnormality in Chromosome 21. It is highly unlikely that X-Ray exposure causes genetic abnormalities such as this. However, X-Rays are not recommended while pregnant.

The most common cause of miscarriage is genetic (or chromosome) defects in the baby. This means that the baby was not developing properly and would have had severe problems with abnormalities after birth. According to people who do research on these things, lots of women have what they thought was a late period, but really was a very early miscarriage.

Genetic disorders are caused by abnormalities in the genome. These disorders are rare and may or may not be hereditary.

There are four types of genetic disease or disorder. The genetic diseases are: chromosomal abnormalities, single gene defects, multifactorial problems, and teratogenic problems.

You should be able to get pregnant as long as you are not menopausal. The average age of menopause is currently around 51. The likelihood of genetic abnormalities like Down syndrome does go up with mother's age but there are prenatal screens for this.

Often a child inherits a genetic disorder at birth. This is usually when there are abnormalities found in the genome. These are passed down from the parents' genes.

The most direct form of DNA analysis is genetic testing. Genetic testing analyzes the DNA for mutations and other abnormalities.

Their are many forms of genetic disease. Some of them are chromosomal abnormalities, gene defects, multifunctional problems, teratogenic problems and many more.
