Getting Pregnant Answer A34175
Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Early miscarriages are commonly seen and the exact cause is not yet completely understood. The probable causes for early miscarriage (before completion of 14 weeks of gestation) include: major fetal abnormality, immunologic causes, maternal infections (like rubella, chlamydia, listeriosis etc), improper or failure of implantation, low levels of progesterone in mother, maternal lifestyle problems (like smoking, alcohol use, environmental toxins), PCOS. The probable causes for miscarriage later (after 14 weeks of gestation include: uterine abnormality like fibroids/septum, weak/incompetent cervix, maternal complications like diabetes, epilepsy, asthma, kidney disease or high blood pressure , thyroid problems, etc. Other most common cause is Blighed ovum, which anembryonic pregnancy (that is to say that the normal conception, implantation and placental growth occur without any fetus developing), and your body stops its development as it senses there is something wrong. Causes for Blighted ovum include chromosomal abnormality in egg or sperm. You should consider discussing about probable causes and go ahead with thorough evaluation to look for the underlying cause for the miscarriage. If you have been trying for pregnancy, and have not been successful, you should go ahead with further evaluation to look at ovulation/ovarian function, hormonal levels, uterine causes, karyotyping test etc. Further treatment as indicated (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you in getting pregnant. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
