Women Comment On Miscarriage Management Options

Miscarriage And Treatment Options

Here is a study done to assess women's perception of how their miscarriage was handled.
My site:
The study interviewed women who had recently miscarried and collected information regarding the following:

Demographic details (age, social class as indicated by own and partner's occupation, marital status, number of children, family situation, ethnicity and nationality);
previous reproductive history and experience;
history of the recent miscarriage;
experience of the mode of management and of other related healthcare services;
support from family, doctors and midwives;
feelings before and after miscarriage;
subsequent feelings;
effects on partner and other family members;
coping strategies; and
future reproductive hopes and plans.

Scroll down through the study, I found some of the verbatim comments very true to life and probably helpful for other women going through the same thing:

Warning Signals In Pregnancy

Pregnancy Over 40, Warning Signs

My site:
If you're pregnant for the first time, you may not be aware of certain conditions that may be treatable that could prevent miscarriage or help your pregnancy progress normally. This article talks about some common problems:

From the article:

Anaemia occurs due to an iron and folic acid deficiency and can impair oxygen supply to the placenta and cause complications like shock, thrombosis or excessive bleeding after birth. Signs of anaemia include poor appetite, breathlessness, extreme lethargy, rapid pulse and palpitations, dizziness and fainting.

Decreased foetal movement
Babies differ in how much they move. 10 to 12 movements a day from about the fourth month is considered normal. The movements decrease close to your due date, but if there’s a dramatic change in your baby’s movements, notify your doc. Decreased movement could indicate placental problems, too little or too much amniotic fluid or high blood pressure in the mother.

The uterus contracts mildly throughout pregnancy. Most women become aware of the contractions in the second half of pregnancy and you may get them after a busy day on your feet. If they become intense and painful it could mean the start of labour. Don’t do any delay in contacting your caregiver.

Pain and burning when passing urine
This may be accompanied by cloudy urine with a strong odour and could be the sign of bladder infection. Other signs are sudden abdominal pain or tenderness on the right side. Treat it early.

Pale fluid from the vagina
This could be a sign of a tear in the amniotic sac, allowing the amniotic fluid to escape. If this occurs close to your due date, it could indicate the beginning of labour. If it occurs earlier, it may be the start of premature labour.
Excessive vomiting
Not the proverbial ‘khush khabar’! Vomiting beyond limits can cause metabolic disturbances and electrolyte imbalances. In serious cases you may have to be admitted. 


If No Clotting Disorder, Aspirin Ineffective To Prevent Recurrent Miscarriage

Aspirin To Prevent Miscarriage

I've frequently have heard about women taking aspirin to prevent clotting as a cause of miscarriage.
 If you haven't been diagnosed with this disorder, aspirin may not be effective. However, this article does not address the use of aspirin to help build up the uterine lining which is another reason it may be recommended. Read more:

Researchers from the University of Leiden randomly assigned over 350 women who had a history of multiple miscarriages and who were either trying to get pregnant or were less than six weeks pregnant to one of three treatment groups. The first group received a daily dose of aspirin plus daily injections of nadroparin. The second group received aspirin alone, and the third group received a placebo.

There was no difference among the three groups of women with respect to the proportion who gave birth to a live baby. Even after looking only at the women who actually became pregnant, the researchers could not find any evidence that any of the treatments increased the likelihood of giving birth to a live baby.

We spoke with Dr. Saskia Middeldorp, MD, PhD, one of the investigators of this study, who offered some further insight.

Today’s research suggests that blood thinning drugs, used either alone or in combination, do not reduce the risk of miscarriage in susceptible women who are not known to have a blood clotting disorder. If you are pregnant or trying to get pregnant, follow your doctor’s advice about which drugs to take or to avoid

Does Cramping In Pregnancy Mean Miscarriage?

Miscarriage and Cramping

I had mild cramping with all my pregnancies, including my successful one.
My site:
 Cramping does not necessarily mean there is a problem, although it may be a warning sign. Read more about the possible causes of cramping in pregnancy:

Causes of Cramping During Early Pregnancy

1. Implantation cramping - Some women will experience cramping upon implantation. Implantation usually occurs 8-10 days after ovulation. You should not experience implantation cramping after a positive pregnancy test; however, many a woman has experienced cramping only to find that she is indeed pregnant shortly there after.

2. Stretching uterus - As your body prepares for it's new baby your uterus will stretch and expand. The ligaments that support the uterus will stretch and with this stretching may cause mild cramps.

Is Miscarriage More Likely After Previous Termination?

Miscarriage After Abortion

I have heard differing statistics on whether or not women who have previously terminated a pregnancy have a higher rate of miscarriage with subsequent pregnancies. Here is a site that addresses that question:

From the site:

"An early abortion does not make it more likely that you will have a miscarriage, tubal pregnancy, or infertility in the future, unless an infection develops, which is rare. Abortion has not been proven to increase your risk of breast cancer.

High Body Temperature May Be Associated With Miscarriage or Defects

Miscarriage, Pregnancy Loss and Temperature

Many pregnant women actually seem to get sick more often, probably because their immune systems are supressed in their body's effort to not recognize the pregnancy as an "intruder".
 My site:
However, this may lead to more sickness and fevers. Here is an article about whether or not fevers can harm your pregnancy and when to seek treatment:

From the article:

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.

EMF Risk From Electrical Appliances May Contribute To Miscarriage

Miscarriage and EMF's

One of the things I talk about in my book is the risk of miscarriage from high EMF's.
My site:
 There is some controversy about this, but this recent article confirms that pregnant women should really watch their exposure to electromagnetic fields. Read more:

From the article:

Pregnant women increase their risk of miscarriage by using hairdryers and other electrical appliances, scientists claim.

A study of mothers-to-be suggests electro-magnetic fields around common household appliances could double the chances of losing a baby.

Travelling on trains or trams could have similar effects.

U.S. researchers asked more than 1,000 women in their first ten weeks of pregnancy to spend a day wearing meters around their waists measuring the magnetic fields.

They claim to have found that women exposed to levels of at least 1.6 microteslas - the unit for measuring electromagnetic fields, or EMF - were nearly twice as likely to miscarry.

EMFs are thought to subtly disrupt cell-to-cell communication, which can lead to a miscarriage.

Standing 30cm away from a vacuum cleaner or electric drill will expose a person to between two and 20 microteslas. Food mixers produce between 0.6 and 10, dishwashers 0.6 to three and washing machines 0.15 to three.

A total of 662 women from the 1,063 who took part in the tests in San Francisco were found to be in the high-risk category.

Researcher De-Kun Li, who pioneered the project at the Kaiser Foundation Research Institute in Oakland, California, told today's New Scientist magazine: 'That is another confirmation that the effect is due to EMF. People have never looked at peak EMFs before.

Could Blood Vessels Be Responsible for Miscarriage?

Miscarriage and The formation of Blood Vessels

 I found this interesting article about how some women may be genetically predisposed to recurrent miscarriage because of how their vessels form after conception. Read more:

Blood Vessel Formation After Fertilization

During the time between fertilization of the egg and its implantation in the uterus, a substance produced by the body known as vascular endothelial growth factor, or VEGF, is responsible for directing the formation of blood vessels that allow the uterus to become receptive to the arriving egg. VEGF also controls the creation of new blood vessels in the placenta from which the developing fetus takes in nutrients from the mother.2

See Also: Are You More Fertile After A Miscarriage? (

When this process goes awry, miscarriage theoretically, is the result, the researchers speculated. "Recurrent spontaneous abortions are a frequent reproductive problem, with three or more affecting 1% to 2%, and two or more affecting up to 5% of women of reproductive age," wrote Papazoglou and his colleagues. While this process of vascularization is essential to a normal pregnancy, it's not known if abnormal changes in the development of these blood vessels is a common cause of recurrent miscarriage, Papazoglou's team added.

Pregnancy Loss Later In Pregnancy

Late Miscarriage 

Miscarriage is hard no matter what, but losing a pregnancy after 20 weeks must be even more emotionally heart wrenching because you've anticipated the birth even that much longer.
My site:
This article talks about how losing a later term pregnancy may be different than an early miscarriage:

From the article:

Sam says her daughter being referred to as a miscarriage made her grief worse, and fears the same will be true for Lily.

"A miscarriage in early pregnancy is horrendous, but it's nothing like losing a baby you've carried for six months. Like Lily, I've been through both and as far as I'm concerned she hasn't miscarried.

"Like my daughter Pixi, Lily's baby would have been perfectly formed and she would have given birth to her child just like any other mother.

"I held my daughter, I dressed her, cuddled her and said goodbye properly and I only hope Lily was given the same opportunity to spend time with her baby too."

Boost Progesterone Naturally Can It Reduce Recurrent Miscarriage?

Miscarriage and Progesterone

I have read so much conflicting information about whether or not progesterone supplementation can prevent miscarriage.
See Also: for more on preventing recurrent pregnancy loss and miscarriage
 When I was able to get pregnant naturally but experiencing recurrent miscarriage, I asked a reproductive endocrinologist about progesterone supplementation. He was absolutely against it. I wonder now if I should have sought a second opinion. Well, as it turns out, I was able to carry my last pregnancy to term without it, but I will always have that question.
If your doctor thinks you may benefit from progesterone, inquire about bioidentical progesterone vs. synthetic.

Natural Miscarriage Or D&C?

Miscarriage Naturally or D & C?

I had quite a few miscarriages and some were natural and a few I had a D & C.
My site:
 There are pros and cons of each and this article talks about some things to think about:

I heard many stories when a woman’s child died at 8 weeks old but doctors schedule d & c as soon as possible to avoid infections. Many patients don’t know what to do and listen to what doctor is going to tell. It’s always better to have a second opinion.

My doctor preferred natural miscarriage and I’m glad. I didn’t have any complications after my miscarriage, everything came out good and my uterus was clean naturally. Some women have to have d&c anyway after natural miscarriage if all tissues didn’t come out.
See Also: HcG Levels and Miscarriage (
My story
Sometimes women have to have d&c done even after natural miscarriage. I’m glad it didn’t happen to me. It would be so stressful to go through both natural miscarriage and d &c also. This is why many women choose to do d&c because they want to be sure to get over it as soon as possible.
I waited about 6 weeks before my miscarriage happened. Bleeding was about one month. Miscarriage happened after 2 weeks of bleeding started and everything came out in one day. Then I had bleeding for a few weeks after that.

Some women don’t have patience to carry a dead baby for 6 weeks and wait whether natural miscarriage will occur or not. My nurse told me some women miscarry naturally, but some women never miscarry and have to schedule d&c anyway.
It was long time to wait for my miscarriage but I’m glad I waited.

Why I didn’t chose d&c operation?
I wanted to trust nature more than doctors. Sometimes doctors make a mistakes too and I didn’t want to be somebody’s mistake. There are also some complications can be from d&c, so after reading and researching about it, I decided to take a risk and try natural miscarriage first.

Earlier Diagnosis Of Ectopic Pregnancy May Prevent Surgery and Preserve Fertility

Pregnancy Over 40 and Ectopic Pregnancy, Have Pain and Bleeding Checked Quickly

I remember when I had my ectopic pregnancy. I had felt all along something was wrong.
My site:
 I felt quite a bit of pressure in my abdomen and I remember thinking, I wonder if all pregnant women feel this pain and pressure? I kept telling my doctor's office (i.e. the fertility clinic I went to at the time) and the harried nurses sort of blew me off...(another neurotic fertility patient to deal with).

 See Also: Ectopic Pregnancy (

 As it turns out I had a twin pregnancy so my HcG numbers were strong, but by the time I had my first ultrasound, I was rushed to surgery after one pregnancy was in my tube and the other died in my uterus. Ugghhh...what a mess. This article talks about earlier detection of ectopic pregnancy which could avoid surgery. Read more:

The new diagnostic test is based on testing for eight "markers" in the blood, which show up between four and six weeks into a pregnancy.

The team developing the test is based at Queen's Hospital, Romford, Essex, led by Yemi Coker, consultant for the early pregnancy assessment and treatment unit.

He said: "This test is set to revolutionise the management of ectopic pregnancy.

"We are developing one simple test that can be done early in the pregnancy. An early diagnosis will mean that patients can be treated using just an injection, rather than having to have surgery."

At present women may need several hospital appointments to confirm an ectopic pregnancy before being admitted for an operation.

But the new test requires only one visit after which women with the condition can be treated on an outpatient basis with the fallopian tube being preserved.

It is being backed by NHS Innovations, the agency which identifies potential breakthroughs and helps introduce them into the health service.

Miscarried 19 Times, Then Gave Birth

Pregnancy Over 40 After Recurrent Miscarriage

I'm surprised I never saw this article before because it was written in 2003 and published in the BBC News.

Tests and Treatments for Micarriage

Miscarriage and Recurrent Miscarriage

The following article from has a number of tests and treatments for miscarriage. Although you may have heard about a number of these things before, you may learn something new. Read more:

When Kori Morrison had her first miscarriage, she and her husband, Tom, were upset but still hopeful. After all, she knew that 15 to 50 percent of all pregnancies end in miscarriage, and most of these women who've miscarried go on to have healthy babies. But in the next eight years, Morrison had four more miscarriages. Sadness and self-blame set in. "I wondered if I was eating the wrong things, if I was overstressed, or, worst of all, if my body just wasn't cut out for pregnancy," she says.

Morrison was eventually found to have a hormone imbalance: Low progesterone during pregnancy kept her uterus from nourishing the embryo. With treatment, she went on to have four children

Chemical Pregnancy Story

Early Miscarriage

The term "chemical pregnancy" is confusing to many people.
 My site:
 Here is a story about one woman's miscarriage which explains not only what happens with a chemical pregnancy but how it can affect you emotionally:

My husband sees me and asks why I'm testing. I scream and yell, telling him what's going on. I had wanted to shield him. I break down crying. He's obviously hurt, but lashes out at me with. "That's what you get for telling people early." I cry harder and fling myself dramatically on the bed. He comes over and holds me and apologizes. I cry, "You're mean." "I'm sorry."

See Also:  Determining A Miscarriage By BBT(

I have got to know what's going on. I go in for more blood work. I smile and laugh, but I am nervous. Because of my timing, I'll have to wait until tomorrow.
I'm driving along and I realize that the pregnancy tests all sat in the hot car. Maybe that's why they were negative, maybe it isn't me! I'm happy again.
Later, I'm coming home and I decide to get another batch of the early tests because they are the most sensitive. But when I get home, the test is clearly negative, even after not going to the bathroom for several hours. It's really over. I want to cry but can't.

Life Saving Treatment Helped Woman Overcome Miscarriage and Premature Labor

 Prevent Miscarriage

The woman in this article definitely had a traumatic reproductive history.
My site:
After multiple miscarriages and extremely premature deliveries, she finally has a baby after a new test and treatment to detect potential problems. Read more:L

From the article:

The pioneering test checks for a protein which is produced just before a woman goes into labour.

If the test is positive and the baby could be born prematurely, it gives an important early-warning sign. With this knowledge, doctors can react more effectively, ­prescribing drugs or treatment to prevent labour ­beginning or issuing steroids to ­strengthen the unborn baby’s lungs.
See Also: Are You More Fertile After A Misarriage? (

Julia says: “If doctors had been able to predict I’d go into early labour with Oliver and Maisie, they might have been able to give me drugs to stop it.

“Just being born even a week or two later could have meant they would have survived.”

From 22 weeks onwards, Julia took regular tests in the hope of spotting potential problems early on.

“Terrifyingly, I had a positive result at 30 weeks,” she remembers. “But this meant I could have steroid injections straight away to help the baby’s lungs mature. I knew I would be fine if I went into early labour once again.”

Fortunately, after treatment, the test the following week was negative. And in December, at 37 weeks, baby Ruby was finally delivered naturally, weighing in at a healthy 7lb 3oz.


Gum Disease Can Lead To Miscarriage

Miscarriage Prevention By Taking Care Of Your Teeth and Gums

I've written before about dental problems can raise the "bad" prostaglandins (hormone like inflammatory substances) in your system.
My site:
 This article talks about how, in pregnant women, gum disease can lead to miscarriage:

Experts have long suspected a link between mouth bugs and the risk of miscarriage in pregnancy.

But they now claim they have the first documented case of oral bacteria killing a nearly full term baby.

The study – published in the journal Obstetrics and Gynaecology – reveals the case of a 35 year old woman who had the common gum disease gingivitis.

See Also HcG Levels and Miscarriage (

She delivered a stillborn baby at 39 weeks and doctors were able to trace the oral bacteria in the mother’s mouth to bacteria found in the baby’s bloodstream, lungs and stomach.

The death is reported by a microbiologist at Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine in Ohio, USA.

What Is CMV? Can It Be Prevented?

Miscarriage and Cytomegalovirus

CMV stands for Cytomegalovirus.
My site:
 People who carry the virus may not have any problems, however, for pregnant women, it can be a cause of mental retardation and deafness in their babies and it could possible cause miscarriage. The following article discusses this virus and how a vaccine may be on the horizon:

The vaccine contains the DNA of two essential genes that are essential for replication of the virus.  These genes – which are also found in other herpes viruses such as chicken pox or herpes simplex – have the same or very similar sequence, structure and function whether in human or mouse viruses, and present a novel target for the host’s T-cells to muster forces and attack the virus.
See Also:  Alternative Medicine and Home Remedies For Miscarriage (
 Secondly, the vaccine also contains a “boost” from an inactivated virus, which generates an antibody response.  Neither approach alone would give complete protection.
