Hysteroscopy Can Detect Structural Uterine Defects (SUD)

After I had completed my fertility treatments, and after I had gotten pregnant a couple of times on my own, I decided to have a hysteroscopy to find out if there was anything in my uterus that might be causing me to miscarry.
 This procedure can be done in a doctor's office and aside from a little discomfort and cramping, is pretty easy to go through. Here is an article that talks about hysteroscopy and the benefits of having the procedure
From the study:


SUD=structural uterine defect

Fourteen patients (60.9%) had a normal hysteroscopy (with biopsies). Nine patients (39.1 %) had SUD, as follows: Five patients (21.8%) had intrauterine adhesions, two patients (8.7%) had a septated uterus, one patient (4.3%) had submucosal myoma, and one patient (4.3%) had multiple factors. After appropriate therapy of the SUD, seven patients (77.8%) achieved successful pregnancy and two patients (22.2%) had recurrent miscarriage. In the normal hysteroscopy group, eight patients (57.1%) had recurrent miscarriages, two patients (14.3%) had infertility, and four patients (28.6%) achieved successful pregnancy with no further therapy.


The prevalence of SUD in our studied population was 39.1 %. After appropriate treatment, the rate of live-birth pregnancies in these patients was 77.8%. Because SUD are the most treatable cause of RPL, these patients should be identified early after other potential causes of RPL are eliminated.

Endometriosis produces prostaglandins which may cause early miscarriage 

When a woman has endometriosis, the endometrial implants secrete a substance called "prostaglandins".  To make a long story short, these prostaglandins may throw off the normal functioning of hormones and may cause the uterus to contract and shed at the wrong time - especially in early pregnancy.

There are natural ways to deal with endometriosis

This article not only gives the biological explanation of endometriosis, it also talks about some of the natural ways you can deal with the condition.  Read more:


From the article:

 For instance, there is a normal surge in prostaglandin F production at the end of the menstrual cycle, causing the effect of the copus luteum of the ovary to die down and signaling the start of a new menstrual cycle. The implants of Endometriosis produce their own prostaglandin surge several days after that of the womb lining. This may be one of the main causes of very early miscarriage.
If a women is a few days pregnant then the Endometriosis implants producing prostaglandin F would incorrectly signal the ovary to start a new menstrual cycle, causing the womb lining with the implanted egg to be expelled - and the consequence is an early miscarriage. 

... Nutrition in both parents, even before pregnancy has a profound effect on the state of the egg and sperm, as well as on the nature of the secretions within the peritoneal cavity. Choice of foods, particularly fats and oils, may be a crucial factor as these affect the production of prostaglandins, cell membranes, steroid hormones, and neurotransmitters etc.

There's good news and bad news about this time of year. The good news, according to this article that one of the "forbidden" foods may actually help prevent miscarriage...the bad news is that most of the "Easter" chocolate sold out there is the bad kind "milk chocolate". Just make sure your chocolate is "dark" and has a high cocoa content. Read more:


From the article:

(NaturalNews) If you're pregnant, you may be happy to know that chocolate cravings may be good for you. New research shows morning sickness lowers the risk of miscarriage by almost 70 percent -- and eating chocolate daily also appears to lower the risk of miscarriage.

"Chocolate is a genuine healing food," said Mike Adams, a consumer health advocate and holistic nutritionist. "It helps prevent cancer, boosts liver function and improves moods and energy. The key, though, is getting real cacao, not the candied chocolate that's mostly sugar and milk fat. When shopping for a chocolate bar, look for a cacao content of 75 percent or higher, and always buy organic chocolate," Adams said.

After having so many miscarriages, I was completely petrified my entire pregnancy. I was so afraid afraid of having a miscarriage. When I finally had my daughter, although I was elated, I was consumed with fear that something was going to happen to her. I worried about everything from crib death to whether or not she was getting enough nutrition. Everything was fine, but I can certainly relate to this article about how women continue to be haunted by their miscarriages even after having children. Read more:

But an analysis of 13,000 British women, found that the 2,800 who had suffered a miscarriage or stillbirth were much more likely to be anxious or depressed during their next pregnancy - and after the birth.



This state of mind persisted for nearly three years after they gave birth to a healthy baby, found researchers. The findings are published today (THUR) online in the British Journal of Psychiatry.

The women were drawn from the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC), which follows 14,000 women in the Bristol area who were pregnant in 1991 and 1992.

Professor Jean Golding, founder of ALSPAC and one of the report's authors, said: "This study is important to the families of women who have lost a baby, since it is so often assumed that they get over the event quickly, yet as shown here, many do not.

"This has implications for the medical profession as well as the woman and her family."

Zinc and Miscarriage

Here is a very interesting article about how a woman overcame recurrent miscarriage after having tried a number of traditional medial treatments.
 A hair analysis showed that she had a zinc deficiency which can lead to a build up of other toxins. Read more:

According to Foresight, my low zinc levels were causing the miscarriages and were compounded by the high levels of copper, which leaches zinc from the body.

I also had worryingly high levels of aluminium, which is toxic. Chris was found to be low in selenium, a trace element crucial for male fertility.


We were both issued with all sorts of supplements which we ticked off on a chart on the fridge door every day. It cost us about £25 each per month for the array of vitamin and mineral pills we took.

We also stopped drinking alcohol, lived as healthily as we could, and ate only fresh, organic food. We'd been told to wait for six months before trying for another child, but within two months, quite by accident, I found I was expecting Lottie.

At first we were terrified we'd conceived too soon - before our bodies had had a chance to reach optimum health. But this time, as the days turned into weeks, it became more and more clear that this baby was here to stay.

At seven weeks, I went into hospital for an early scan, just to check that all was well, and there, in the centre of the amniotic sac, a sturdy little heart was beating away.

Miscarriage Over 40

If you've had a miscarriage, chances are you'll have a successful pregnancy afterwards.

See Also: for more on preventing recurrent miscarriage

 Most women who have one or more miscarriages go on to have a healthy pregnancy.

The risk of complications is small, but there may be more incidences of pre-eclampsia, prematurity and bleeding

The last thing I want to do is alarm women who have had one or more miscarriage because I was absolutely terrified my entire pregnancy due to all of the warnings from my well meaning doctors.  However, this article gives some very good reason to be diligent about prenatal care for your subsequent pregnancies.  Read more:

Women who had a previous miscarriage were 3.3 times more likely to have pre-eclampsia and 1.5 times more likely to have a premature baby.

These women should be monitored as well as those who have recurrent miscarriages, the authors said.

Studies in the past have focused on the consequences of three or more miscarriages (recurrent miscarriage), although for most women, a single miscarriage is far more likely.

Women with a history of one miscarriage were 1.7 times more likely to have a threatened miscarriage, where they have symptoms of a miscarriage but do not actually miscarry.

They were also 1.3 times more likely to have bleeding after 24 weeks in their subsequent pregnancy.

The study, published in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, of more than 33,000 women also found that women who suffered one miscarriage were more than twice as likely to have labor induced and almost six times as likely to an "instrumental" vaginal delivery, such as the use of forceps.

Preterm birth after 34 weeks gestation was 1.6 times more common, and low birthweight (less than 2,500g) was 1.6 times more common.

“A single initial miscarriage increased the risks of pregnancy complications in the next continuing pregnancy compared to women who had a successful first pregnancy,” said lead researcher Dr. Sohinee Bhattacharya.

"While for most women these risks are small, increased obstetric surveillance should not be restricted only to women with multiple miscarriages."

"It is important for women to be aware of the risks," said Gail Johnson of the Royal College of Midwives, but they should not be alarmed by the findings.

"Women who have had a miscarriage are able to have a successful pregnancy. If that pregnancy is complicated we can offer monitoring and treatment to improve the outcomes," she said.

“The findings from this research are helpful to healthcare professionals caring for pregnant women,” said Professor Philip Steer, BJOG editor-in-chief.

"They provide us with an idea of the complications that may arise as a result of a previous miscarriage. This will help doctors in the management of the subsequent pregnancy."

One factor not assessed in the study was the interval between the miscarriage and the next pregnancy, Steer said.

He said this is important because many previous studies have shown that an interval of less than six months between the miscarriage and the next pregnancy substantially increases the risk of pregnancy 

complications, and the risk does not reach a minimum until 18 months to two years

Miscarriage and Recurrent Miscarriage Makes People Uncomfortable

Some time ago, I spoke with abcNEWS, this time about miscarriage and some of the surprising medical practices and societal attitudes.
 George Bush wrote about his mother's miscarriage in his book and it received quite a bit of media attention. Apparently Barbara Bush saved a miscarried fetus in a jar and took it to the hospital. This practice seems rather creepy to many people, but I myself was told by a physician's assistant to save the "products of conception" when it expelled after we knew one of my pregnancies wasn't viable. I never did because the miscarriage itself was just like a heavy period when I finally started to bleed.



The article talks about how our society in general is uncomfortable with most aspects of pregnancy loss. Read more:

From the article:

"We'll never look at Barbara Bush the same way again," wrote another.

The reaction, say psychologists, illustrates the "ick" factor when discussing miscarriage and misunderstandings about a loss that is still treated in hushed tones.

"It's just the sight of blood and human tissue that is hard for people to see," said Sandy Robertson, a 52-year-old Colorado professor who had six miscarriages. "Then you're dealing with the death of a baby on top of it.

"Our society, at least in this country, is so sterile anyway," she said. "People just aren't used to seeing that."

People are also uncomfortable around those who are experiencing a miscarriage and don't want to cause further discomfort, she said.

I never wanted to take any kind of medication while I was pregnant.
 However, if you have an infection called "Bacterial Vaginosis", treating it with antibiotics could save your pregnancy.  If you think you might have a vaginal infection, you should talk with your doctor about getting it treated especially before you become pregnant.


 Read More:

"UK researchers found treating the condition early on in pregnancy could reduce the risk of both miscarriage and premature birth.

They said it may be advisable to screen women for the condition before they became pregnant, so they could receive treatment."

I remember like it was yesterday...the cold stares by the doctors and ultrasound technicians as they looked at the ultrasound monitor trying to find a heartbeat.
 I don't envy their job when they have to tell you there is none, but I will say that most aren't trained very well on how to deal with a woman who has just lost her pregnancy.


After suffering multiple miscarriages, I dealt with a number of doctors, nurses and ultrasound technicians' reactions. For example:

Some just stick with the facts..."I don't see a does not appear to be viable"

Some go into their "professional mode" with a long medical dissertation - none of which a lay person could understand

Some give unwanted advice - "you can try again"..."have you considered adoption?"

Some engage in "total avoidance" - no eye contact...make a beeline toward the door at the first opportunity.

Out of all of my miscarriages, only one nurse said, "I'm so are you doing?"

I have seriously thought about offering to do a free lecture at medical schools or internship programs on how to deal with a woman who has just suffered a miscarriage. I know doctors and nurses are busy, but this is part of their job.

To this day, I HATE going to OB/GYN doctors (of course, everyone hates Pap Smears), but, for me it always brings back memories of waiting for the bomb to drop then having to deal with the cold shoulder and uncomfortable silence.

Granted, there's really nothing people can say to "make it all better" when you've suffered a miscarriage, and I'm sure I'm guilty of displacing my anger about losing a pregnancy and "shooting the messenger", but a little compassion would go a long way.

Miscarriage and Industrial Chemicals

So what are "glymes" you ask? They are those pesky chemicals found in many everyday products and pharmaceuticals.
 The problem is that they can cause miscarriage. Fortunately, the EPA is starting to notice and take action. Read more:


The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced in July that it plans to clamp down on these little known ingredients used by a broad array of industries. Used mostly as solvents, glymes are found in lithium batteries, inkjet cartridges, brake fluid, paints and carpet cleaners. They are also widely used to make prescription drugs, printed circuit boards and microchips.

The EPA determined that three glymes pose a “high concern to workers, consumers and children” because they may have reproductive or developmental effects. A U.S. study more than a decade ago found links to miscarriages among workers in semiconductor manufacturing.

If You're Trying To Have A Baby, Try B12

I've always believed in taking a multivitamin because we tend to get into a rut with our diet (i.e. eating the same things over and over again).
 Sometimes we just don't get all of the nutrients, vitamins and minerals we need through our food. Here is an article about B12 and how it may help with infertility and miscarriage:



From the article:

"Infertility as a result of vitamin B12 deficiency may be related to anovulation, abnormal cell division in the fertilized ovum or a lack of implantation due to megaloblastoid changes in the endometrium. Recurrent early fetal loss may also be associated with vitamin B12 deficiency, though rare.

The obstetrics histories of 14 patients presenting With 15 episodes of vitamin B12 deficiency were analyzed. Infertility of two to eight years had been present in four episodes, and recurrent fetal loss was a feature in 11. Two of these 11 cases had never had a full-term delivery. Case 1 had had seven spontaneous abortions before the finding of vitamin B12 deficiency. Treatment with B12 resulted in their first full-term delivery within nine months followed by two more full term deliveries. In six cases, miscarriages were followed by a period of infertility. In one case, after 3 miscarriages followed by six years of infertility, severe megaloblastic anemia was found with ahemoglobin of 5.8 g/dL and a serum B12 level of [less than] 50 pg/mL. Following parenteral B12 administration, the patient became pregnant immediately and delivered a full-term infant.

In 10 patients, a full-term delivery occurred after vitamin B12 therapy. Six of them almost immediately conceived."
