Miscarriage is a natural occurrence, as opposed to medical or surgical abortions. The spontaneous loss of a fetus before the 20th week of pregnancy is referred to as a miscarriage. When a woman experiences two or more consecutive clinical pregnancy losses, this is referred to as a recurrent miscarriage or recurrent pregnancy loss.
What leads to recurrent miscarriages?
Recurrent miscarriage might have various causes, including:
- Thyroid Problems
- Problems with blood clotting
- Complications with the uterus
- Genetic Abnormalities
- Cervical weakness
- Polyps and fibroids
- Asherman’s syndrome
Identifying a recurrent miscarriage
In order to determine the cause of recurrent miscarriages, an ob/gyn or fertility expert will carefully review the patient’s medical history and previous pregnancies. To begin the diagnostic process, a comprehensive body checkup, including a pelvic examination, is typically recommended by the doctor. If a genetic defect is suspected as the underlying cause of repeated miscarriages, the doctor may suggest a karyotype test. This test analyzes the size, shape, and number of chromosomes in a sample of body cells. If there is a suspicion of a uterine issue contributing to recurrent miscarriages, imaging tests such as an MRI or sonogram/ultrasound may be conducted by the doctor.
Additionally, blood testing can be performed to identify immune system issues like APS (antiphospholipid syndrome). These diagnostic approaches aid in determining the cause of recurrent miscarriages and help guide appropriate treatment options.
Recurrent miscarriage treatment
Recurrent miscarriages can be treated with lifestyle modifications, medication, surgical procedures, or genetic testing to improve the likelihood of a healthy pregnancy.
- Surgery can eradicate certain fibroids or irregularities in scar tissue as well as correct issues with a septate uterus. Since it increases the live birth rate, surgical repair is frequently the preferred treatment for anatomical problems.
- A doctor may recommend blood thinning drugs if the patient has an autoimmune condition like APS.
- Treatment for physical conditions, including hypothyroidism, hormone abnormalities, and abnormal blood sugar levels, might increase the likelihood of a healthy, full-term pregnancy.
- A doctor might advise genetic counseling if a chromosomal issue like a translocation is discovered.
- Making healthy lifestyle decisions and keeping a healthy weight may reduce the chance of recurrent miscarriages.
