O06.4: Unspecified abortion Incomplete, without complication

You are having, or you had, a miscarriage or a terminated pregnancy.

During pregnancy, a child develops inside your uterus. The placenta usually provides the child with nutrients and oxygen in the womb. In the case of a miscarriage the child, not yet fully developed, and the placenta are prematurely expelled from the womb. There can be various reasons for a miscarriage. It may be that the child has not developed properly and died in the womb. It may also be that other reasons caused the miscarriage and the child died immediately afterwards.

The termination of a pregnancy involves the pregnancy being terminated through external measures.

Residual tissue from the child or from the placenta is still in your womb after the miscarriage or termination.
