The article presents the findings of a scientific study which aims to see whether aspirin alone or combined with nadroparin increases live births in women with unexplained recurrent miscarriage. Undertaken by doctor M. Goddijn of the University of Amsterdam, it was conducted on 364 women who had previous unexplained miscarriages and were pregnant. It was seen that aspirin alone did not increase live births. A chart related with the same is also presented.
