NSAIDS May Be Associated with Miscarriage

Miscarriage - Avoid NSAIDS

When I was trying to conceive, I avoided taking NSAIDs unless my menstrual cycle had already started.
My site: www.getpregnantover40.com
These drugs, at least for me, were very effective for menstrual cramps - but I always waited until I actually got my period before taking them. The scary thing is that many times the early pregnancy symptoms can mimic PMS (additionally, I had spotting with all my pregnancies - I thought my period was starting). So, just to be sure, wait until you have a full menstrual flow before using NSAIDS.I have frequently heard that you should not take many of the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs during pregnancy. The article below explains some of the research done on NSAIDS:

By Ed Edelson
HealthDay Reporter

THURSDAY, Aug. 14 (HealthDayNews) -- Pregnant women who take aspirin or painkillers known as NSAIDs have a strikingly higher risk of miscarriage, a study finds.

The study of more than 1,000 pregnant women found the risk of miscarriage for those who took aspirin was 60 percent higher than for those who did not and was 80 percent higher for those taking any NSAID (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug) than for those who did not.

No such risk was found for those who used acetaminophen, the active ingredient in Tylenol and the like, say researchers from the Kaiser Foundation Research Institute in California, whose study is published in the Aug. 16 issue of the British Medical Journal.

NSAIDs, widely used to treat arthritis, work by reducing production of molecules called prostaglandins in many organs of the body. Aspirin has the same action. Acetaminophen also inhibits prostaglandin production, but only in the central nervous system.

Animal studies indicate that prostaglandins are needed for implantation in the wall of the uterus, say the researchers, led by Dr. De-Kun Li, a Kaiser Foundation research scientist. Suppressing prostaglandin production "can interrupt the natural process of implantation," Li says.

At A Loss

From the article:

“In some ways, I felt sort of lonely
back in the early days,” says stillbirth
researcher Richard Pauli,
whose own son was stillborn.
“Nobody was interested, except
for the physicians who cared for
families who had stillborns.”

Fish Oils: How They Benefit Pregnancy And Miscarriage

Fish Oils, Pregnancy and Miscarriage

It seems like fish oils are getting a lot of attention lately as a cure-all for everything from autoimmune disorders to miscarriage.  That's because they have an anti-inflammatory affect on the body.  Fish oils are also thought to benefit a growing fetus because they help with brain development...

Miscarriage After Fertility Treatment

Miscarriage After Fertility Treatments Can Be Even More Traumatic

Three of my miscarriages were after fertility treatments. Although every miscarriage is traumatic, when you go through fertility treatments, you also have all of the financial stress, and the stress associated with medications, dealing with healthcare personnel and so on.
My site: www.getpregnantover.com
This article talks about pregnancy loss after fertility treatments and how the best way to deal with it is through seeking support from other women going through the same thing. Read more:

Being a patient at a fertility clinic brings moments of anxiety, hope, excitement, fear, and stress. The time and effort to become pregnant can feel like an emotional roller coaster and certainly a different route to conception than one may have imagined. A Harvard Medical School study showed that patients going through fertility treatments experience comparable levels of stress to patients who are going through treatment for cancer and heart disease.

This is no surprise as patients experience the daily, weekly, sometimes hourly ups and downs as they are progressing through their treatment. The focus of all of these treatments leads up to the day the pregnancy test is taken. Many couples use up their financial, emotional and physical resources to go through treatment and they have a tremendous amount riding on the hope that their pregnancy test will be positive and that their journey was a success.

Sperm May Cause Some Miscarriages

Miscarriage May Have a "Male Factor"

If you are experiencing recurrent miscarriage, it may be sperm causing the problem.
My site: www.getpregnantover40.com
This article talks about how certain chromosomal abnormalities in sperm could cause miscarriage or repeated miscarriage. Read more:


The new study, published in the June issue of Obstetrics and Gynecology, focused on a small group of just 24 men, whose partners all had at least one unexplained pregnancy loss. According to Hatasaka, all of the women underwent what he says was "state of the art testing," including genetic screenings, and were found to be normal.

To check the men, researchers obtained semen samples from each partner, along with samples from 26 sperm donors with a history of at least one successful pregnancy within the previous two years. Sperm was also collected from a general population of 42 men. The age range for all the men in the study was between 26 and 36.

After the samples were retrieved, the semen was liquefied, isolated and then subjected to a series of highly detailed tests. This included checking for motility (the ability of the sperm to move or swim), concentration (the number of sperm in a selected sample), viability (general health), morphology (form, structure and genetic material), plus the way the sperm would react in fluids that approximate what is found in the female reproductive system.

"We were primarily looking for evidence of breaks in the DNA that would indicate a genetic defect that would result in a defected embryo, which would eventually result in pregnancy loss," Hatasaka says.

The result: While some of the tests showed similar results among all the men, in those whose partners had a history of miscarriage, researchers identified some specific differences, including the presence of chromosomal abnormalities.
