Miscarriages are common, but the majority of Americans still think they occur rarely, a new survey finds.

The nationwide online survey found that 55 percent of peoplein the United States believe that miscarriage happens in 5 percent or less of all pregnancies. But in reality, miscarriages end 15 to 20 percent of reported pregnancies, according to the researchers.
