Miscarriages FAQ

A miscarriage, also known as spontaneous abortion, is the loss of a pregnancy before 12 weeks gestation. It typically occurs due to  various reasons.

Common signs include vaginal bleeding, abdominal cramping or pain, fluid or tissue passing from the vagina, and a sudden decrease in pregnancy symptoms such as nausea and breast tenderness.

It can be caused by chromosomal  abnormalities in the fetus,, maternal health conditions such as diabetes or thyroid disorders, infections, uterine abnormalities, and lifestyle factors like smoking or excessive alcohol consumption.

While stress is not typically a direct cause of miscarriage, excessive stress can potentially contribute to pregnancy complications. It’s essential to manage stress during pregnancy for overall well-being.

Pregnancy losses, while not uncommon, happen in approximately 10-20% of known pregnancies. However, the actual rate may be higher since many instances occur very early in pregnancy, often before a woman realizes she is pregnant.

Treatment for a miscarriage depends on various factors, including the stage of pregnancy and the cause of the miscarriage. Options may include expectant management, medication to help pass the tissue, or surgical procedures such as dilation and curettage (D&C).

Recovery time varies for each individual. Physical recovery typically takes a few weeks, but emotional healing may take longer. It’s essential to give yourself time to grieve and seek support if needed.

It’s generally recommended to wait until you’ve had at least one normal menstrual cycle after a miscarriage before trying to conceive again. However, this timeframe may vary based on individual circumstances and medical advice.

While some are unavoidable due to genetic or chromosomal abnormalities, there are steps you can take to reduce the risk, such as maintaining a healthy lifestyle, managing chronic health conditions, avoiding harmful substances, and seeking early prenatal care.
