As many as one in six clinically recognised pregnancies miscarry, and many women suffer the loss of three or more consecutive babies without any apparent reason for such recurrent miscarriage. The economic, societal and psychological costs are tremendous. The PROMISE trial tests whether treatment with progesterone (a natural pregnancy hormone) in the first trimester can reduce the risk of miscarriage in women with a previous history of unexplained recurrent loss. The study is taking place in approximately 50 hospitals across the UK and the Netherlands.
