One hundred seventy specimen included vaginal bleeding , vaginal swab and urine , were collected One hundred thirty specimen from women with recurrent miscarriage and fourtyspecimen from control. Through the research two types of media were used (IH broth medium) and (IH agar medium). positive isolates of Ureaplasma spp. in culture were investigated by PCR assay to identification of Ureaplasma parvum and subtyping to (SV1, SV3, SV6, SV14). The results showed the Ureaplasma parvum was identified in (29.6%) from patient and (11%) from control. Ureaplasma parvum isolates were further subtyped by using PCR assay, the results revealed the serovar3 was the most repeater isolate in rate (42.8%), while serovar1(28.5%), serovar6 (14.2%) and serovar14 (14.2%) in patient but in control only serovar1 was isolated in rate (11%). These results indicate that Ureaplasma parvum infection may be an important etiologic agent of recurrent miscarriage and serovar3 was the most repeater serovar detected in present study.

Keywords: Ureaplasma parvum , serovars, IH medium ,recurrent abortion , PCR, subtyping.
