Many women may have endometriosis and not even know it.  In some women it can be a cause of severe pain, but not always.  Endometriosis can wreak havoc on your reproductive system causing scarring and adhesions which sometime block fallopian tubes and hook together other pelvic structures.  Endometriosis can also be a cause of early miscarriage because it can send the wrong signals to your uterine lining causing it to shed too early.
 In my case when I saw a fertility doctor, he did a laparoscopy just to see what was going on.  He did find some endometriosis and removed it.  I don't know if this helped me to get pregnant naturally, but it did probably keep the condition from getting worse which would have eventually been more of a problem.  Read more about what endometriosis is and some natural ways to treat it:

I recently started a line of fertility jewelry through my website, and I recently added a miscarriage memorial remembrance necklace.  I suffered six miscarriage before having my daughter and although that was a number of years ago now, I wish I had something to remember them by.  I did have a memorial service for each of my babies lost through miscarriage, and in retrospect it would have been nice to have something tangible to hold on to and wear in their honor.

 If you have a work up for infertility, most likely they will take a look at your thyroid.  However, if you do become pregnant, thyroid disorders can also lead to miscarriage and stillbirth. According to a study published by the Endocrine Society:

During pregnancy untreated, hypothyroidism is associated with an increased risk of miscarriage, stillbirth, low birth weight, and other serious complications. Although previous research has suggested that women with moderate thyroid dysfunction, or subclinical hypothyroidism, also are more likely to suffer complications, the level of risk was uncertain.
In this study, investigators found that even mild thyroid dysfunction that did not meet the criteria for hypothyroidism greatly increased the risk of serious problems. Compared to pregnant women with normal thyroid function, the risk was:
• doubled for miscarriage (≤20 weeks of pregnancy), premature labor, and low birth weight
• seven times greater for still birth

 (from:  Endocrine Society. "Mild thyroid dysfunction in early pregnancy linked to serious complications." ScienceDaily. ScienceDaily, 23 June 2012. .)

In Pregnancy, Watch Out for Medications Like Ibuprofen

I frequently take Ibuprofen for those occasional menstrual cramps.

 The problem is, if you happen to be pregnant (and many symptoms of pregnancy can mimic PMS), those helpful over-the-counter medications can cause miscarriage. If you think you may be pregnant or if you're trying to get pregnant, be careful about taking anything. Talk to your doctor about what's safe and what isn't. Read more:

Women who take aspirin, ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil, etc.), or naproxen (Alleve) during pregnancy or just before may have an 80 percent increased risk of miscarriage, according to a study in the August 16, 2003 British Medical Journal. The study was conducted at Kaiser Permanente in the San Francisco Bay Area. When women first had a positive pregnancy test, they were asked to list any and all medicines they had been taking since their last menstrual periods. Use of the above medicines was associated with more miscarriages even after adjusting for fever or other symptoms, the mothers' age, hot tub use, smoking, or previous miscarriages. Those who took the above medicines in the days right around conception had a markedly higher chance of problems (a 560 percent increased risk, or 35 percent miscarriages). Most women who took the medicines for longer than a week lost their babies (an 810 percent increased risk or 52 percent miscarriages). Acetaminophen (Tylenol) use did not appear to affect the miscarriage risk. Before my oldest son was born, my mother cautioned us against using any medications during pregnancy unless clearly necessary - even avoiding something as common as aspirin. Although more research is needed before we know with certainty about these medicines in pregnancy, the latest scientific research supports my mother's gentle wisdom. Women everywhere should know about the potential risk.

Dilatation and Curettage After Miscarriage

My treatments after my miscarriages varied by the situation.
 I did have a couple of D&C's since two of my miscarriages did not expel by themselves, but most of them just came out on their own as a heavy period.   One of my D&C's was done after fertility treatments left me with a twin pregnancy where one became ectopic (lodged in my fallopian tube) and one was in my uterus but was non-viable.  Talk about a big mess!  I was rushed into surgery to have a laparoscopic removal of my tube and a D&C in my uterus.So What is a D&C like?
First of all, D&C stands for "dilatation and curettage".  This procedure is usually done as an outpatient in  a hospital or other surgical center.

Stillbirth From Reduced Placenta Bloodflow

I have frequently posted articles about how being overweight or obese can interfere with conception and pregnancy.
See: for more on miscarriage, recurrent miscarriage and natural ways to prevent pregnancy loss
 This article talks about a study which measured placenta bloodflow. Although the study was not done on humans, it may give an explanation why stillbirths are more common in obese women especially if they have a high fat diet. 

From the article:

According to Evans, poor nutrition can probably damage the placenta, given that high-fat diets, regardless of subsequent obesity, lowered blood flow to the uterus in the monkeys. Subsequently, "maternal obesity and insulin resistance further exacerbates placental dysfunction" resulting in more stillbirths, she says.

David Ellwood, an obstetrician at the Australian National University in Canberra, agrees that "placental dysfunction is the most likely explanation" for the increased risk of stillbirths amongst obese mothers.

Miscarriage and Septate Uterus

Some women have a septate uterus and don't even know it until they have a problem with their pregnancy.
The following explains the condition and what can be done about it:
From the article:

"In the female embryo, uterine development is usually complete by 22 weeks' gestation, with the two müllerian ducts fusing together to form a single uterus. In one of the final events of uterine formation, the wall where the ducts fused dissolves, forming a single endometrial cavity. It is the failure of this last process that produces a septate uterus with two endometrial canals, reflecting either a partial or complete failure of the duct walls to dissolve, depending on the extent of the septum. Although there is some evidence of a weak genetic factor at work, researchers still do not know the exact cause of the failure of a septum to resorb.\

While a septum is not thought to decrease fertility, it does seem to affect the course of a pregnancy, either through miscarriage or pregnancy complications. Early miscarriage is common within the septate uterus, because the blood-starved median septum is covered by a poorer grade of endometrium than that of the blood-rich sidewalls. An embryo implanting in the septum frequently fails to thrive because of lack of nourishment, and an early miscarriage is the result. Late miscarriage is also common, and its likelihood increases along with the extent of the septum. Some studies suggest that in a completely septate uterus, the prognosis of a live birth is as low as 10%. In a late miscarriage, the pregnancy outgrows available space and the cervix may give way, typically midway in the pregnancy, before the fetus is mature enough to survive. Other complications include premature labor, premature birth, intrauterine growth retardation, and fetal malpresentation at birth. One caveat to keep in mind is that women diagnosed with uterine septa tend to be the ones with the most problems conceiving or carrying to term; cases of septa that do not affect reproduction are probably under-reported"

I suffered six miscarriages before I finally had my successful pregnancy with my daughter.  I carried a lot of anger and grief around with me because I felt like a failure and a social outcast because my body just couldn't hold on to a pregnancy.  I truly believe that the unresolved emotions acted as an obstacle to my having a successful conception and full term gestation.  I needed to deal with each miscarriage by having a memorial service and to finally say goodbye.  I know the term "closure" is thrown around and I don't know if anyone really really feels like a loss is ever resolved, but I will say that I did feel better once I finally gave each of my lost babies a proper "goodbye".  I said what I wanted to say to each of them before sending them off to their place in heaven.

I have been hearing for many years that women may be more fertile after a miscarriage and it may be easier to get pregnant after pregnancy loss.  Is it true?  Much of the literature out there confirms that there's no need to wait to conceive after a miscarriage (unless perhaps you had surgery or an infection), but does this actually increase your chance of another pregnancy?

Iron deficiency can be a problem in pregnancy and most prenatal vitamins will contain iron.  This article also associates iron deficiency in pregnancy with thyroid disorders.  Iron levels and Thyroid should be checked for optimal fetal and placenta development.  Read more:



According to lead author Dr. Kris Poppe - head of the Endocrine Clinic at Saint-Pierre University Hospital (ULB) in Brussels, Belgium - iron deficiency can be especially harmful for expectant mothers and their offspring; women need more iron during pregnancy in order to make the additional blood cells needed for fetal and placental growth.
Iron also aids the functioning of a protein called thyroid peroxidase (TPO), which is crucial for the production of thyroid hormone. Pregnant women need to produce enough thyroid hormone in order for their babies' brains to fully develop. This is particularly important in the first trimester of pregnancy, when the fetus has yet to develop its own thyroid gland...

The researchers found that 35 percent of the expectant mothers had iron deficiency, of whom 10 percent had thyroid autoimmunity. Among pregnant women without iron deficiency, 6 percent had thyroid autoimmunity.
What is more, measurements of TSH levels showed that 20 percent of the pregnant women with iron deficiency had subclinical hypothyroidism, where TSH levels are mildly elevated, compared with 16 percent of those without iron deficiency.

Abnormalities In Sperm Can Contribute To Miscarriage

I think people frequently think miscarriage is a woman's problem since the baby grows inside of her.
Sperm are very susceptible to toxins and even environmental changes in the testicles (i.e. too much heat etc.).  That's probably why men make so many sperm in comparison to the limited number of eggs that women are born with.
This site given an explanation about how sperm damage can be an underlying cause of birth defects and learning disabilities. Read more:

From the article:

regnancies ending in miscarriage were found to have fathers whose sperm showed higher levels of defective sperm as well as lower sperm counts. This was the conclusion in a 1962 research project conducted by the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Sabbatsberg Hospital in Stockholm, Sweden. Semen specimens were gathered from 201 men whose wives had experienced miscarriages in the second to third month of pregnancy or abortions in the fourth to fifth month of pregnancy. (The term "abortions" in this context was the term used in the early 1960’s to define miscarriages that occurred after the third month of pregnancy). In the research families, over half the families had experienced two or more abortions (late miscarriages). For comparison, a control group of 116 sperm samples were also checked from husbands who had visited the hospital but whose wives had produced living normal children within two years. To insure similar parameters among participants, sperm samples were acquired by masturbation after an abstinence period of five days. Results of the two groups showed that sperm counts for the abortion/late miscarriage group was 110.2 million per cubic centimeter, while the sperm counts for the control group was 138.7 million per cubic centimeter. The investigators classified this as "highly significant statistically." Of even more concern, it was found through microscopic examination of sperm samples that approximately 48% of the sperm were "abnormal" in the miscarriage group while only 4% of the sperm were "abnormal" in the control group who produced normal children.
