Default ICD 9 code for recurrent pregnancy loss?

If anyone has a suggestion for ICD 9 code for "recurrent pregnancy loss", but the patient does not meet definition of "habitual aborter, 629.81".
Any input is greatly appreciated.

Have you looked at the V23 code range

V23.49 Supervision of high-risk pregnancy with other poor obstetric history
V23.5 Supervision of high-risk pregnancy with other poor reproductive history

Would those apply?

Those would work, but I forgot to include that the patient is not currently pregnant...
Thanks
