MISCARRIAGE, HELP FOUND WITH TLC

Miscarriage and Recurrent Miscarriage Helped With The Tender Loving Care Factor

Sometimes, all we need is a little tender loving care, especially when we've experienced recurrent miscarriage.
 This interesting article talks about not only some of the medical treatments for miscarriage, but also how some women just do better once their pregnancy is monitored - even without medical interventions. Read more:

In addition to the wealth of research that goes on at St Mary's, there is one strange phenomenon that seems to bear no relation to the scientific facts it gathers. Yet its existence has been written about in medical papers around the world and contributes to the clinic's amazing results.

It sounds ridiculous but it's called the Tender Loving Care factor. "Of all the women that come to us, half of them are there because of bad luck. We do the tests and then have to say that there's nothing wrong with them. Our research, and studies published in Scandinavia and New Zealand, has found that once someone has come to us, the next pregnancy will fare better. It seems that once a woman is part of a programme where she is being looked after and monitored, the pregnancy goes better. So it can be the case that after three miscarriages, the fourth pregnancy results in a take-home baby."

And that is the other reason why the clinic must raise the money it needs.

LONGER TO CONCEIVE = POOR PREGNANCY OUTCOME?

Miscarriage After Infertility

I guess this didn't come as a suprise to me - if it takes a long time to get pregnant, a miscarriage may be more likely.
I'm guess that some of the factors that lead to infertility also lead to miscarriage. I will say, however, that even though it took us a while to conceive my daughter, I had a normal pregnancy and normal delivery.  Read more:

From the article:

The length of time it takes for a couple to achieve a pregnancy may have a direct impact on the outcome of the pregnancy, such as miscarriage, stillbirth, or multiple pregnancy. That's the finding of a study from Sweden1 based on a review of earlier research.

But in an e-mail interview, study researcher Anna Axmon, PhD, stressed that this study "was an epidemiological one. This means that the results presented are only applicable to groups of women, i.e., as a group, women with extrauterine pregnancies have longer TTPs [time to pregnancy] than does the group of women who give birth to singleton live [infants]."

Thus, no conclusions can be drawn from this study about individual women, she pointed out. For instance, when analyzing individual cases in the study, there were women who experienced a miscarriage after becoming pregnant relatively quickly and there were women were took much longer to become pregnant and had a healthy baby, Axmon explained.

Still, Axmon and Lars Hagmar, MD, in the division of Occupational and Environmental Medicine and Psychiatric Epidemiology at University Hospital in Lund, Sweden, wanted to explore the association between the length of time it took women, as a group, to become pregnant and certain pregnancy outcomes that had not been assessed in earlier research.

"Previous studies have found that pregnancies ending in miscarriage took longer to achieve than those ending in live birth," they wrote. "The aim of the present study was to further explore a possible association between TTP and the risk of preterm delivery, as well as different pregnancy outcomes such as miscarriage, stillbirth, multiple birth, and extrauterine pregnancies."

RECURRENT MISCARRIAGE MAY LACK DIAGNOSIS

Recurrent Miscarriage Can Be Treated With Proper Assessment

This very honest article from the Daily Mail, a UK publication talks about how many couples should have a "work up" for recurrent miscarriage, but, instead, they are sent away with a wish for "better luck" next time. Read more:

'We are not giving many of these women and their partners the treatment they deserve, says Dr Shehata. 'Miscarriage is not seen as a serious condition - it doesn't kill the woman, and there is usually no baby to hold or bury.

'Yet talk to any woman who has suffered a miscarriage, and she'll tell you that she's never forgotten the pain of losing her baby.


'I don't believe in the "bad luck" school of thought. Recent research shows that around 90 per cent of recurrent miscarriages are caused by a diagnosable condition.'

He adds: 'The problem is that within the NHS, many of these women are being treated by clinicians who have no specialist knowledge, and, as a result, may not carry out the range of tests available or even do tests that are inappropriate.

'Sadly, it's not unusual for me to see a woman who has suffered from recurrent miscarriages and has had liver function tests. Liver function has little or no bearing on miscarriage, so that test is pretty much a waste of time.'

WHAT IS A MOLAR PREGNANCY/MISCARRIAGE?

Miscarriage and Molar Pregnancy


On one of my miscarriages, we were concerned that it might be a molar pregnancy since my HcG levels kept going up.
Fortunately, after having a D & C, we found out that I did not have a molar pregnancy. Here is an article that explains how a molar pregnancy happens and the dangers:

What Mrs. Aguinaldo had experienced was a molar pregnancy--a gestation that usually produces only placental tissue and no fetus. Like miscarriages and Down syndrome babies, molar pregnancies are far more common among older women, probably because aging eggs are--for unknown reasons--more prone to genetic errors. And the genetic mistake that precedes a molar pregnancy is indeed catastrophic: either before or after fertilization, the egg loses its nucleus and all the maternal genes it contains.

No one knows how often this happens. What we do know is that every now and then--often enough to account for about one pregnancy in every thousand in the United States--a fertilized egg carrying only paternal chromosomes survives. What usually happens is that the genes carried by the sperm somehow duplicate within the egg. By replacing the egg’s missing chromosomes, the sperm provides the number of chromosomes that embryonic development normally requires. One might expect that after such compensation a normal pregnancy would follow. But despite the normal number of chromosomes, no fetus forms.

POLLUTION MAY CAUSE CHROMOSOME PROBLEMS

It always scares me when I see articles like this one. Depending on where you live, it's hard to avoid toxins in air pollution. Apparently, these toxins can damage chromosomes and affect fetal growth. Read more:

From the article:

When their babies were born, researchers found about 50% more genetic abnormalities in infants whose mothers had higher levels of exposure to toxics caused by burning fuels such as gas and coal, the researchers said.

Though the study was conducted in low-income neighbourhoods in Harlem and the Bronx, the findings sent a clear warning for any pregnant woman in a bustling city, according to the New York Daily News.

"We already knew that these air pollutants significantly reduce fetal growth, but this is the first time we've seen evidence that they can change the structure of chromosomes in [the womb]," said Dr. Frederica Perera, director of Columbia's Center for Children's Environmental Health.

“These pollutants are very pervasive in the urban environment, so we have no reason to think the results are not relevant to other populations in urban areas," she said.


The findings, published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers and Prevention, point to the
need for stricter government standards for polluters in cities, and not just in low-income areas, Dr Perera said.

Because the study involved only a relatively small number of participants, however, researchers were unable to determine a ‘safe’ exposure level that did not cause damage to chromosomes, which carry a person's genetic code, or DNA.

RECURRENT MISCARRIAGE AND HINDSIGHT

Miscarriage and Recurrent Miscarriage Over 40

Even now that I've moved past my infertility and miscarriage "phase", I'm frequently reminded of those six years of trying to concieve and my multiple miscarriages.
 I was looking through some photo books the other day and I was surprised how each of the pictures reminded me of one of my lost pregnancies.

The first picture was one taken on the 4th of July. It was shortly after my first IVF when I was pregnant with twins. The picture was taken right after I found out I was pregnant and I recall feeling some pelvic pain. Turns out I had an ectopic pregnancy and lost both babies. I look at myself in that picture, I had no idea what a rollercoaster ride I was in for. Part of me wanted to jump in the picture and tell myself what the future held so I could prepare. I would tell myself "Watch out! Things aren't going to be as easy as you think...not only are you going to lose those babies, but you're going to lose many more... but that would have been so cruel to that unsuspecting girl with high hopes for the future.

SEE ALSO: MISCARRIAGE, 10 THINGS TO KNOW

I guess none of us can know what's coming next, but whatever it is, we get through it. Hindsight is great, but wouldn't it be nice to know what's going to happen before it happened? Well...maybe not, if I knew what I was in for, I may have given up and never had my daughter. The moral of the story is you can never predict the future. Even the most hopeless of situations can have a happy ending.

I still grieve for all of those lost babies, but dealing with all of those losses has made me truly appreciate what I have now.

FOLATE TO PREVENT MISCARRIAGE

Folic Acid Can Help Reduce Miscarriage and Birth Defects

The importance of taking enough folic acid if you plan to become pregnant has been well publicized to prevent neural tube defects.
 But many people are also surprised to learn that adequate amounts of folic acid can also reduce the risk of miscarriage. Read more:

"The results of this study reinforce the importance of folate for women in their childbearing years," said Duane Alexander, director of the NICHD. "Not only does taking folic acid before conception prevent the devastating form of birth defects known as neural tube defects, but it also appears to lower the risk of early miscarriage."

Since January 1998, the US Food and Drug Administrationhas required food manufacturers to fortify certain grainproducts with folic acid, to reduce the risk of NTDs. Alsoin 1998, the Institute of Medicine recommended that allwomen of childbearing age receive 400 micrograms of folicacid each day. Canada and Chile also have fortification programmes in place, but European countries have been hesitant about adopting the practice. In the UK, for example, the Food Standards Agency recently decided not to recommend the fortification of grain on the grounds that not enough was known about the potential adverse effects.

The study was conducted between 1996 and 1998 in UppsalaCounty, Sweden, by Dr Lena George of the KarolinskaInstitutet in Stockholm, Sweden, and her colleagues.Sweden was considered an ideal country in which to conductthis study because, unlike the United States, its grainsupply is not fortified with folic acid, explained the author of the study, Dr James Mills of NICHD's division of Epidemiology, Statistics, and PreventionResearch.

WHAT MAY HELP TO PREVENT MISCARRIAGE

Recurrent Pregnancy Loss, What Treatments Are Available?

I recall after having numerous miscarriages (I had six before I finally had my daughter naturally), I knew there had to be a way to stop all of these pregnancy losses.
As it turned out I was able to regulate my system to the point where I carried to term with absolutely no complications.

SEE ALSO: INFORMATION ON MISCARRIAGE AND RESOURCES (Getpregnantover40.com) 

Medical Research On Miscarriage 

However, there are some medical treatments which are discussed on this site (link below).  Some of the information is technical in nature, but it appears to be a good resource based on medical research.  Of course, you should talk with your doctor before taking anything if you are trying to conceive or if you are already pregnant. Aspirin is one medication that is mentioned in the article that not everyone can tolerate. It can lead to clotting problems, digestive system problems, among others.  I did take baby aspirin when I was trying to conceive, but not when I was pregnant.

From the site:

 

EVIDENCE-BASED ANSWER
Progesterone produces a small but significant decrease in miscarriage among pregnant women with 3 or more unexplained pregnancy losses (strength of recommendation [SOR]: A, based on a meta-analysis of 3 small randomized controlled trials [RCTs] with wide confidence intervals). Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) reduces the rate of recurrent pregnancy loss among women with 2 or more unexplained pregnancy losses (SOR: B, based on a meta-analysis of 4 RCTs with significant methodologic weaknesses).
Four types of immunotherapy are ineffective for preventing miscarriage (SOR: A, based on RCTs and systematic reviews of RCTs). Aspirin therapy is ineffective for preventing recurrent miscarriage for women who do not have an autoimmune explanation for previous pregnancy losses (SOR: A, based on RCTs).

CAN MISCARRIAGE BE CAUSED FROM BIRTH CONTROL PILLS?

Miscarriage and Birth Control Pills

If you're trying to conceive, you're probably not on birth control.
 However, I've heard many cases of women who were on the pill and became pregnant. Sometimes women undergoing fertility treatments are put on birth control pills to give their ovaries a rest before starting their medications. Their first question is,  if they do happen to get pregnant, whether or not this will hurt their baby or cause a miscarriage. The following site discusses that question:

Very often, women who are taking birth control pills find that they are pregnant.

See Also: Are You More Fertile After A Miscarriage? (www.getpregnantover40.com) 

 As long as they stop taking birth control pills before the second trimester of pregnancy, there will not be any problem. If you take birth control pills after the first trimester of pregnancy, there is a risk of masculinization of a female fetus. Birth control pills do NOT cause a miscarriage.
