UNDERSTANDING MISCARRIAGE AND HOW TO PREVENT IT

Most of miscarriage are caused by genetic factors resulting in poor development of the embryo or placenta. 

Understanding the different factors that may contribute to miscarriage, may help you to prepare for a future pregnancy with more awareness in order to have a stronger and healthier body.

Miscarriage usually happens within the first 14weeks and it becomes quite common in women over 40’s. Even if you have miscarriage 3 times, you still have high chances to have  a healthy pregnancy. 

The main causes and factors increasing the risk of miscarriage include:

 

  • Chromosomal abnormalities (70%)

 

  • Infections in early pregnancy. It is better to wait an infection is completely gone before trying to conceive.

 

  • STI as they cause pelvic inflammation and may cause ectopic pregnancy

 

  • Wrong supplement (echinacea, st john, ginko bilboa)

 

  • Diet: try to reduce coffee and have an adequate protein intake, which is essential for quality eggs. Cooking meat at high temperature, consuming smoked or preserved product may all cause damage to eggs. Magnesium needs to be increased during pregnancy.

  • Radiation from TV, Radio, Photocopy machines

  • Chlorine : avoid swimming pools in the first trimester and don’t buy “already washed” salad as it has been washed in chlorine

  • Autoimmune disorder such as Hughes Syndrome. This causes the blood to become sticky so the nutrients struggle to reach the placenta. A simple remedy could be taking a low dose aspirin as it thins the blood (always consult your GP). 

  • Overreacting NK cells, which they attack the embryo as they see it as a cancer or invader. If you have any suspect, ask your GP for a blood test. Studies have proven that 86% success can be reached through the use of steroids or aspirins. You can also ask your GP to check your thyroid as NK cells could cause Thyroiditis, creating fertility problems. 

  • Endometrial lining may not be good and affect the implantation of the egg. It can be checked by a gynaecologist to see if progesterone levels are ok. Sometimes viagra can be prescribed as it has the ability of increasing the blood supply to the uterus.

  • Obstetric cholestatis (only 1 over 100 pregnancy). This relates to a liver condition that creates a persistent general itching sensation, mostly in the last trimester in hands and feet, for a build up of bile acids in bloodstream. It is usually diagnosed with a blood test and treat with medications.
