Richard Green has been sentenced to a further 13 years after admitting to four rapes committed 20 years ago.
Richard Green, 48, of HMP Parkhurst, Isle of Wight, pleaded guilty in June to four counts of rape and multiple incidents of false imprisonment and ABH.
The court heard how the victim came forward in 2012 and how Green abused the woman - who was aged 19 when the attacks began - whilst they lived together in Chingford between 1997 and 1999.
The victim also suffered a miscarriage during the assaults.
He was sentenced to thirteen-and-a-half years' imprisonment at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Friday.
The court also heard how Green had already been convicted and imprisoned for rapes on two separate occasions against other women.
He was jailed for 10 years in 2000 with a concurrent sentence of six years and three months in 2012 after being found guilty of rape again.
'The victim has shown a great degree of courage, persistence and determination in securing the conviction, having persevered with the allegation and supporting the police investigation.
'The victim has had to live with this trauma and the absolutely horrendous violence she endured for the years she was under the control of Green and will have to live with these memories of the abuse for the rest of her life.
'Green is a dangerous, controlling and manipulative individual who has been convicted twice previously for rape.'
He added: 'He will continue to spend a substantial period his life in prison where an individual of his heinous character should be.
'Given Green's history of abusing women it cannot be discounted that there are other victims of his - I would urge anyone who has been a victim of Richard Green to contact police - specially trained officers are there to support you
