Miscarriage, Progesterone and Hormone Regulation

If you're experiencing miscarriage and sleep deprivation, hormonal imbalances could be responsible for both of these conditions. I know before I changed my lifestyle, I had both these problems.  Since hormonal balance is critical to getting pregnant and staying pregnant, you may want to have your progesterone checked.

Symptoms of Low Progesterone:

These are just a few of the possible symptoms of low progesterone. Some women may have only a few of them. Others may have all these symptoms. However, low progesterone can be the sign of other underlying medical conditions such as an ovarian cyst, luteual phase defect or estrogen dominance. Left untreated, low progesterone can lead to infertility issues and recurrent miscarriage in women of child bearing age.  If you suffer from some of these symptoms, you may be low in progesterone:

* Depression
* Irritability and Anxiety
* Low Blood Sugar
* Panic attacks
* Water retention
* Migraines
* Night sweats
* Sleeping problems
* Trouble concentrating
* Memory loss

If you are monitoring your fertility by taking your body temperature, you're probably familiar with the rise in BBT due to the flucuation of hormones.  The rise in your temperature after ovulation is due to an increased level of progesterone. Elevated temperatures after ovulation coincide with elevated progesterone levels. So, when your temperature remains elevated even after your luteal phase was

supposed to end and your temperature was supposed to drop, it can be a reliable indicator of early pregnancy. Most women make the mistake of putting away the thermometer after their positive pregnancy test.
What they don't know is that temperatures that consistently remain above their pre-ovulatory cover line in the first trimester is one way to see if the embryo is implanting properly instead of heading for an early miscarriage. In general, the first trimester is usually the most important as far as recording BBT. Keep in mind, too, that temperatures can become erratic and fluctuate more once you are out of the first trimester (around 13 weeks). This is normal, and is caused by the placenta taking over progesterone production. (partially excerpted from

After having six miscarriages, and going back an analyzing some of the signs and symptoms, I can share the following (at least from my experience):
  • Spotting or bleeding during pregnancy was one of the first indicators....however, many normal pregnancies (including my successful pregnancy) have some implantation bleeding.  So this may have to be evaluated along with other symptoms
  • Cramping (usually somewhat more than minor cramping) especially when accompanied by bleeding or even the passage of clots
  • A change in BBT (basal body temperature) - If you are monitoring your temperature, you may see a drop after a miscarriage see also: determining a miscarriage from BBT (
  • Sudden loss of pregnancy symptoms:  this doesn't always happen, but one of my miscarriages

    did have a sudden loss of symptoms along with a gush of blood one morning.
  • pelvic pain sudden or progressive could be a sign of an ectopic pregnancy.  I did have an ectopic pregnancy and from the very beginning I had a dull pelvic pain, but right before the surgery (after it was found on ultrasound), I had a sharp severe pain.

Many women are devastated to find out their pregnancy is no longer viable.  If this is your first experience with miscarriage, you may not know that it can take quite a while for the pregnancy to expel from your body.  I suffered 6 miscarriages before having my daughter.  It is physically and emotionally devastating.  What makes it worse is to have the nonviable pregnancy still in your body which can continue to cause pregnancy symptoms like nausea, sore breasts etc.  In one of my pregnancies, my hcg levels continued to something was growing in there...just not a baby.  I
finally opted to have a D&C because I really wanted to try again and I wanted the pregnancy symptoms to go away.  My doctor was also a little concerned that my hcg levels weren't going down.  In a normal situation, it can easily take a month for hcg levels to get out of your system after having a miscarriage. 
I did some research on natural methods to help your body expel a pregnancy that is no longer viable.  I have not tested these methods, so please check with your doctor - I just thought it would be helpful to have the research all in one page.  I published these because it was a common question but it is not meant to be a substitute for medical diagnosis and treatment.

I previously posted about how herbs may contribute to Miscarriage. Here is the other side of the issue and more on herbs and miscarriage:

Recurrent Miscarriage and Herbal Medicine

Guest Post By Mike Berkley

Herbs and Blood Clotting Disorders Contributing to Recurrent Miscarriage

Both anticoagulants and antiplatelet mitigators are medicines that reduce blood clotting in an artery, a vein or the heart.
Heparin and Lovenox are anticoagulants and aspirin is an antiplatelet.
Antiplatelets such as aspirin decreases platelet aggregation and thrombus formation. They are mostly used in problems with arterial circulation where anticoagulants have little effect.
Anticoagulant medications make the blood 'thinner' and prevent the formation of blood clots and hence could prevent stroke.
Both anticoagulants and antiplatelet medications have been used to treat chronic recurrent miscarriage due to thrombophilic disease.
There are several herbal medicines which possess antiplatelet and anticoagulant properties.
Jiang Huang and Yu Jin are herbs that possess antiplatelet properties. Chuan xiong has both anticoagulant and antiplatelet properties.


I am not recommending that a patient with a thrombophilic presentation use herbs instead of Western medicine which possess the required qualities necessary to prevent miscarriage via anticoagulant or antiplatelet activity. Sometimes however, a drug does not possess the same qualities of an herb. An herbal formula, for example, has a multitiered effect. The correct formula might for example, be used to reduce inflammation, reduce platelet aggregation and/or reduce coagulopathies as well as reduce stress, strengthen the immune function and help facilitate weight loss in an obese patient. All of these things would be required in a patient of this type to increase the odds of a successful on-going pregnancy; not just Heparin or Lovenox or Aspirin. This is important to consider in case you miscarry even when taking these types of meds.
In other words, you may need more intervention than these meds are capable of providing.
I would recommend that you follow the instructions of your reproductive endocrinologist and hope for the best. But in the face of failure with traditional Western medical approaches, trying herbs may help contribute to a full term pregnancy. In my practice I have seen this occur many times.
Many patients faced with the difficult challenge of trying to conceive or who recurrently miscarry are instructed by their reproductive endocrinologists to not take herbs. This is because your doctor is trying to protect you because his or her training is in Western medicine and not in Chinese medicine
White Turquoise Tree of Life Fertility/Pregnancy Bracelet
and they do not feel comfortable mixing Western medicine with herbs.
Though their hearts are in the right place, their experience is not. I have, on multiple occasions prescribed herbs to patients who were taking gonadotropins or Clomid or Lupron, etc., and have never seen any problems. The combination either helped the patient or did not.
The herbs will not reduce the effectiveness of the meds nor, in most cases will they increase the potency of the meds. The only exception to this would occur if I prescribed herbs with anticoagulant/antiplateleet properties to a patient who was taking Lovenox or Heparin. Then there would be a potentiating and possibly dangerous effect.
Acupuncture can increase metabolic function and stimulate the flow of blood throughout the body. Increasing hemodynamics is not, however the same as actually reducing platelet aggregation or reducing hypercoagulation. The benefit of using acupuncture with herbs is that the acupuncture will help ensure the distribution of the herbs throughout the body.
Typically when getting treated for infertility or recurrent pregnancy loss the most effective approach in the absence of success with Western medicine alone is to combine acupuncture, herbs and Western medicine.
When you are prescribed herbs be certain that a board certified herbalist is doing so.

Pregnancy has a number of milestones which, when reached, usually lessen the possibility of miscarriage.  I'm sure that's why a number of women choose to keep their pregnancy a secret until they've reached the end of the first trimester.  One big milestone is when a heartbeat is seen on ultrasound.  However, sometimes a woman will go on to miscarry even after a heartbeat is seen.  One of my pregnancies did have a heartbeat, but the doctor immediately said "it's slow" when he looked at the ultrasound.  I did miscarry that pregnancy.  This article discusses the chance of miscarriage at different points in the pregnancy:


From the article:

The heartbeat can be seen on ultrasound right around the 5th week of gestation. However, even if the
Feng Shui Elephant Fertility Bracelet
heartbeat is seen this will not rule out other causes of miscarriage such as birth defects or chromosome abnormalities that may end the pregnancy. 

What Are the Chances of Miscarriage After Seeing Heartbeat?
If miscarriage were to occur, 80% of them happen before the 12th week of pregnancy. Out of those, 50% to 70% happen before women even know they are pregnant. The chances of miscarriage are actually quite low if you already see fetal heartbeat on ultrasound. There is approximately a 5%-10% chance of miscarriage after the baby’s heartbeat is visible. This does only apply if the fetal heart rate is a good number. Low heart rates may show a problem and that a miscarriage may be imminent. Also, if there is a heartbeat it doesn’t always mean that a miscarriage will not occur later on.
This rule also only applies if you are experiencing a healthy pregnancy with no bleeding, cramping, spotting or lack of pregnancy symptoms. Another factor is the heart rate. If the baby has a normal heart rate over 120 beats per minute it is considered normal. Concern goes up if the heart beat is too slow or too fast. Doctors add that even if the heart rate is normal, there can still be other conditions that affect the baby and/or pregnancy like poor maternal health, drug/alcohol use, hormone issues or uterine structural abnormalities.

Chances of Miscarriage in Different Conditions of Pregnancy
After the heartbeat is detected the risk of miscarriage begins to decline, but there are differentfactors that affect the rates of miscarriage. The numbers are not exact, but can give a rough estimate at the rates of pregnancy loss for certain situations:
  • ŸNo vaginal bleeding. With no vaginal bleeding, the chances of miscarriage after seeing heartbeat are 4%.
  • ŸWith vaginal bleeding. With vaginal bleeding in early pregnancy, the chances of miscarriage after detection of heartbeat are around 13%.
  • ŸHistory of miscarriage. If there is a history of more than one miscarriage in the past, the chances go up to 17%.

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

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.

Do You Need A D & C After Miscarriage?

My treatments after my miscarriages varied by the situation. I did have a couple of D&C's since
two of my miscarriages did not expel by themselves, but most of them just came out on their own
as a heavy period. One of my D&C's was done after fertility treatments left me with a twin pregnancy
where one became ectopic (lodged in my fallopian tube) and one was in my uterus but was non-viable.
Talk about a big mess! I was rushed into surgery to have a laparoscopic removal of my tube and a D&C in my uterus.

Pregnancy Loss and Chromosome Testing for Miscarriages

Guest Post By Melissa Maisenbacher

Although most couples are blissfully unaware of the statistics surrounding miscarriage, pregnancy loss is actually quite common, with 10-25% of recognized pregnancies ending in miscarriage. If you have suffered a pregnancy loss or are currently in the process of having a miscarriage, you may be wondering what caused the loss and worry about whether it will happen again. This article aims to answer the following questions:
  • What causes miscarriage?
  • How common is pregnancy loss?
  • What type of genetic testing is available for miscarriage tissue?
  • How can chromosome testing help?
Causes of Miscarriage
There are many different reasons why miscarriage occurs, but the most common cause for first trimester miscarriage is a chromosome abnormality. Chromosome abnormalities - extra or missing whole chromosomes, also called "aneuploidy" - occur because of a mis-division of the chromosomes in the egg or sperm involved in a conception. Typically, humans have 46 chromosomes that come in 23 pairs (22 pairs numbered from 1 to 22 and then the sex chromosomes, X and Y). For a baby to develop normally it is essential that it have exactly the right amount of chromosome material; missing or extra material at the time of conception or in an embryo or fetus can cause a woman to either not become pregnant, miscarry, or have a baby with a chromosome syndrome such as Down syndrome.
Over 50% of all first trimester miscarriages are caused by chromosome abnormalities. This number
Click For Fertility Bracelets with healing stones
may be closer to 75% or higher for women aged 35 years and over who have experienced recurrent pregnancy loss. Overall, the rate of chromosome abnormalities and the rate of miscarriage both increase with maternal age, with a steep increase in women older than 35.
Pregnancy Loss - How Common is it?
Miscarriage is far more common than most people think. Up to one in every four recognized pregnancies is lost in first trimester miscarriage. The chance of having a miscarriage also increases as a mother gets older.
Most women who experience a miscarriage go on to have a healthy pregnancy and never miscarry again. However, some women seem to be more prone to miscarriage than others. About five percent of fertile couples will experience two or more miscarriages.
Of note, the rate of miscarriage seems to be increasing. One reason for this may be awareness - more women know they are having a miscarriage because home pregnancy tests have improved early pregnancy detection rates over the past decade, whereas in the past the miscarriage would have appeared to be just an unusual period. Another reason may be that more women are conceiving at older ages.
Types of Genetic Testing Helpful for Miscarriages
Genetic testing actually refers to many different types of testing that can be done on the DNA in a cell. For miscarriage tissue, also called products of conception (POC), the most useful type of test to perform is a chromosome analysis. A chromosome analysis (also called chromosome testing) can examine all 23 pairs of chromosomes for the presence of extra or missing chromosome material (aneuploidy). Because so many miscarriages are caused by aneuploidy, chromosome analysis on the miscarriage tissue can often identify the reason for the pregnancy loss.
The most common method of chromosome analysis is called karyotyping. Newer methods include advanced technologies such as microarrays.
Karyotyping analyzes all 23 pairs of chromosome but requires cells from the miscarriage tissue to first be grown in the laboratory, a process called "cell culture". Because of this requirement, tissue that is passed at home is often unable to be tested with this method. About 20% or more of miscarriage samples fail to grow and thus no results are available. Additionally, karyotyping is unable to tell the difference between cells from the mother (maternal cells) and cells from the fetus. If a normal female result is found, it may be the correct result for the fetus or it may be maternal cell contamination (MCC) in which the result actually comes from testing the mother's cells present in the pregnancy tissue instead of the fetal cells. MCC appears to occur in about 30% or more of the samples tested by traditional karyotype. Results from karyotyping usually take a few weeks to months to come back from the laboratory.
Microarray testing is a new type of genetic testing done on miscarriage samples; the two most common types of microarray testing are array CGH (comparative genomic hybridization) and chromosome SNP (single-nucleotide polymorphism) microarray. Microarray testing is also able to test all 23 pairs of chromosomes for aneuploidy, but does not require cell culture. Therefore, you are more likely to receive results and the results are typically returned faster when microarray testing is used. Additionally, some laboratories are collecting a sample of the mother's blood at the same time the miscarriage tissue is sent to enable immediate detection of maternal cell contamination (MCC).
Chromosome Testing - How can it help?
If a chromosome abnormality is identified, the type of abnormality found can be assessed to help answer the question: "Will this happen to me again?". Most of the time, chromosome abnormalities in an embryo or fetus are not inherited and have a low chance to occur in future pregnancies. Sometimes, a specific chromosome finding in a miscarriage alerts your doctor to do further studies to investigate the possibility of an underlying genetic or chromosome problem in your family that predisposes you to have miscarriages.
Furthermore, if a chromosome abnormality is identified it can prevent the need for other, sometimes quite costly, studies your doctor might consider to investigate the cause of the miscarriage.
Lastly, knowing the reason for a pregnancy loss can help a couple start the emotional healing process, moving past the question of "Why did this happen to me?".
Chromosome testing can be especially important for patients with repeated miscarriages, as it can either give clues to an underlying chromosomal cause for the miscarriages or rule out chromosome errors as the reason for the miscarriages and allow their doctor to pursue other types of testing. For couples with multiple miscarriages determined to have a chromosomal cause, in vitro fertilization (IVF) with preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) testing may be able to help increase their chances of having a successful healthy pregnancy.

About Gene Security Network
Gene Security Network's miscarriage testing is specifically designed for products of conception (POC) analysis to provide as much or more information than a standard karyotype. In order to obtain the most comprehensive results possible, Gene Security Network requests a sample of mother's blood at the same time the POC sample is sent. This allows the results of the miscarriage tissue to be compared with the mother's DNA data to rule out maternal cell contamination.

Trying to Conceive After An Ectopic Pregnancy

If you've had an ectopic pregnancy, and you were actively trying to conceive, this can be a major setback.  Not only did you experience a miscarriage, but you may also have to go through surgery to remove the pregnancy since this condition can be life threatening if left untreated.  If you're anything like me, trying to conceive at an older age, you feel the time pressure as each month goes by.  Having an ectopic can set back your ability to get pregnant by a few months while you recuperate from surgery.  Additionally, you feel like your chances of getting pregnant again are cut in half.  But, the odds are in your favor to go on to have a healthy pregnancy.
