yes 50-75% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage is the ratio. I've had three miscarriages and one full term life birth, so I've been counseled on this extensively by OBGYNs.
In some areas of the world the miscarriage and birth defect rate is MUCH higher, due to the concentration of environmental pollutants. In some parts of the US the miscarriage/spontaneous biological abortion rate is closer to 90%! scary.
