User Profile
I am 24 year old.
its past 1 year since i got married
6 months back i had a missed abortion in the 12th week in the month of December 2009.
from the first month i had spotting the doctors told i had a Subchorionic hematoma and there are 50% chances that the pregnancy may or may not continue.after 6 months ie in the month of june 2010 it was 10 days passed i missed my periods suddenly on the 10th day i had some spotting and then i did a home pregnancy test which was positive i rushed to the doctor after an ultra son the Doctor told it was an incomplete abortion.And the Doctor told me to wait for 3months to start planning for the next pregnancy.they also told me that only after the third abortion the will start investigation.
What should i do i am very upset of my 2 abortion.I dont know what to do to wait or perform the test now so that the 3rd abortion does not happen.its very painful to take another chance.

Hi! Many thanks for your question on eHealth forum!

Yes, a miscarriage can be very traumatic and I can understand your apprehensions. Each pregnancy behaves separately. Also some causes of miscarriage are related to that pregnancy alone. Some causes tend to recur and you must be careful about these.

Generally first trimester abortions or abortions occurring in first three months are due to fetal abnormality, genetic causes, Rh blood group incompatibility and low progesterone hormone. Infection of the uterus, endometriosis, fibroids, etc are some other causes for early abortion.

You need to consult your gynecologist and run some tests to rule out these causes.
