Abstract

Objective To compare the cost of selective recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) evaluation, which is defined as RPL evaluation if the second miscarriage is euploid, versus universal RPL evaluation, which is defined as RPL evaluation after the second miscarriage. Traditionally, an RPL evaluation is instituted after the third miscarriage. However, recent studies suggest evaluation after the second miscarriage, which dramatically increases health care costs. Alternatively, chromosome testing of the second miscarriage, to determine whether an RPL evaluation is required, has been proposed.
