Embryo termination is a common gynecological disease with an incidence of 10% ~15%, which occurs mainly in the 12th week of pregnancy. After embryo termination, there are generally no obvious discomfort symptoms, so early diagnosis is difficult and timely and effective treatment cannot be carried out, which seriously endangers the physical health of women and threatens their health. In order to clarify the factors and pathogenesis that cause embryo termination, many experts and researchers at home and abroad have conducted studies on embryo termination. Based on this, the relevant research on non-genetic influencing factors leading to embryo exposure will be reviewed from the perspectives of uterine microbiota, endocrine factors, immune factors and social psychology. The aim is to provide references and ideas for further exploration of mechanisms and intervention measures related to embryo exposure, thereby providing reference to research and improvement of maternal health.
