Best Answer

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.
