Causes of Miscarriage.

Miscarriage or spontaneous abortion is the loss of a pregnancy before 24 weeks. Most take place in the first 12 weeks. They occur in 15 - 20% of all pregnancies. Recurrent miscarriage is where the woman has three or more miscarriages in a row.
Causes of Miscarriage

Often the reason for miscarrying is not known but sometimes a definite cause can be found. When there has been more than one miscarriage each may have had a different cause.

Miscarriage can be caused by any of the following:


Charting - By tracking a menstrual cycle, some problems can become apparent. Analysis of blood hormone levels will provide further information.
Early pregnancy will be detected by charting and this will allow for hormone support, where required, to be started quickly.
Blood tests - can reveal possible problems with hormones or the immune system.
Ultrasound scanning - can be used to examine the internal organs, ie uterus, tubes and ovaries. Laparoscopy - enables a gynaecologist to view the pelvic organs.
Hysteroscopy - using a telescopic instrument through the vagina and cervix enables a view of the inside of the uterus.
Hystersalpingogram - is an x-ray of the uterus and the fallopian tubes following the insertion of a dye.
Other forms of screening - can identify possible infections.

Progesterone treatment of miscarriage

Women who have low progesterone levels will be placed on a progesterone supplement in early pregnancy and the dosage regulated according to her blood progesterone levels.
Hormone treatment can help even before a baby is conceived. Natural progesterone can also be used to support a pregnancy. Antibiotics can cure infections. Surgery may be effective for some problems in the uterus or cervix if appropriate.

If you have a history of recurrent miscarriages
Have a complete medical examination before you attempt to get pregnant again. Try to make lifestyle changes, ie stop smoking, abstain from alcohol or chemical substances. If you think you are pregnant see your doctor as soon as possible.
Coping with recurrent miscarriages
The loss of a pregnancy, no matter how early or late, can result in grief or disappointment, which may overwhelm you. For many women the emotional healing takes longer than the physical healing.
If you need help to deal with your feelings, talk to those closest to you.
Counselling may be an option for you and your partner to help you recover.
Remember, you still have a good chance of having a successful pregnancy.
