  • Not exactly but I think it is a lot lower at that point than in the beginning.

  • It's very low. Less than 5% I believe.

    It does still happen but it's unlikely.

  • It is less than the date of conception but you still could have one at any time realistically.

  • It's really low. It drops a lot after 16 weeks.

  • After the first trimester ends (after 13 weeks) the risk of miscarriage goes WAY down. Each passing week, your chances of having a miscarriage drop even more.
