Fevers and Miscarriage

Fever and High Body Temperature Inconclusive For Miscarriage But May Lead To Birth Defects

I've heard so many people say they experienced more colds and general bouts of sickness when they were pregnant - I recall having a number of fairly severe colds which could have been a mild flu.

I've read from numerous sources that your immune system is down a bit while you are pregnant to keep your body from attacking the fetus and pregnancy as a foreign body. With all of this going on, you may wonder if fevers in pregnancy can contribute to miscarriage. This article answers that question:


Can a Fever Cause a Miscarriage?
By Krissi Danielsson, About.com
(miscarriage.about.com)


From the article:

Having a fever during pregnancy, particularly in the first trimester, can cause problems for a developing baby – but researchers do not yet know whether having a fever during early pregnancy may actually cause a miscarriage. It is usually prolonged, high fevers that are thought to cause problems.

Some research does link hyperthermia, or abnormally high body temperature, to risk of neural tube defects and possibly miscarriage. One 2003 study looked at hot tub use and found weak evidence of an association between hot tubs and miscarriages -– and doctors routinely advise pregnant women to avoid soaking in hot baths for extended periods of time to be on the safe side.

Research looking specifically at maternal fevers has found that fevers seem to increase the risk of neural tube defects. (The most severe neural tube defects, such as anencephaly, can be fatal for the baby and thus cause pregnancy loss). Fevers may also increase the risk of other developmental problems, such as heart defects.

The verdicts have been less conclusive as to whether fever causes first-trimester miscarriage; a large 2002 study in "The Lancet" found no evidence of an association, although a 1985 case control study by Johns Hopkins University researchers had hinted at a link between fever and miscarriage.

Because of the possible risk of developmental problems, doctors often advise pregnant women to call when experiencing a fever over 101 degrees Fahrenheit. Remember to call your doctor if you are ever concerned about illness or other symptoms during pregnancy.

MISCARRIAGE CONNECTED TO ENDOMETRIOSIS

Endometriosis May Affect Your Ability To Get Pregnant and Possibly Increase The Risk Of Early Miscarriage

Endometriosis is usually associated with infertility, but can it also be associated with miscarriage?
 Endometriosis produces something called prostaglandins.  These hormone-like substances can be part of normal processes, however in women with endometriosis, the abnormal endometrial implants outside of the uterus can produce these substances out of sync causing contractions and possible miscarriage.  Here is a site that does a good job of explaining the connection between endometriosis and miscarriage:

Testing for A Protein May Predict Miscarriage

New Testing May Offer More Information About Miscarriage Risk

I found this interesting article about how some women who miscarried were tested and found to have low levels of a protein called MIC1 (macrophage inhibitory cytokine.)
My site: www.getpregnantover40.com
 This finding could possibly lead to new treatments. Read more:

Is this the end for miscarriage heartbreak?bu SUZY AUSTIN, Metro

From the article:

"Thousands of women could be spared the heartbreak of miscarriage after a major medical breakthrough.

They could be offered a simple test to see if they are producing enough of a protein which has been linked to development of the placenta.

It will help doctors determine if a woman is liable to miscarry and then offer her treatment. "

Miscarriage and Inflammation


How Immune Response and Inflammation May Contribute To Miscarriage

Here is an interesting article about how inflammation may be contributing to miscarriage and what can be done about it.
 My site: www.getpregnantover40.com
The article is on a pdf.

Ian Stokes - Miscarriage, A New Dawn (www.epc-odx.com)

From the site:

A New Dawn describes the underlying role of inflammation in
each symptom in detail. However, it is important to realize
that inflammatory diseases are utterly dependent upon
inflammation – they are not self-supporting. In turn,
inflammation, in the absence of physical injury, is entirely
dependent upon immune activation. If immune activation
ceases, inflammation ceases and inflammatory diseases
immediately abate – thus the cure for miscarriage lies in the
detection and removal of the source of immune activation.
Such a process is speedy, safe and does not require the use of
surgery or a single drug – in particular one that is already
known to involve a litany of potentially fatal side effects.

Pill For Recurrent Miscarriage


I've written before about whether or not taking a steroid to calm the immune system can help women carry to term. I've read conflicting views on whether it is a proven treatment, but this article seems to support it. Read more:

From the article:

Doctors told her there was nothing they could do.

But after reading about the pioneering research at Liverpool on the internet, the couple travelled from their York home to meet Dr Siobhan Quenby.

Within months Mrs Greenhouse, 35, was pregnant. Tests in December 2006 had revealed she had high levels of natural killer cells and she was put on daily doses of prednisolone.

The couple are now the proud parents of nine-month-old Finlay.
