Misconceptions about miscarriage
Be careful, some of your ideas about miscarriage might be false. It is not right, for example, to feel responsible and guilty for it. It’s also wrong to lose hope if it happens more than once, or to avoid talking about it with people you trust. It’s time to let go of these misconceptions.
Misconceptions to give up regarding miscarriage
- Miscarriage may cause breast cancer. Do you really believe that? If so, then you’re wrong. So far, scientific studies have indicated that no relation exists between miscarriage and malignant tumor growth.
- Miscarriage leads to impaired fertility. Ditch this idea from now on. If the effects of miscarriage are dealt with properly, there won’t be any risks.
Other different myths
- You’re the reason for the miscarriage: Do you really take the blame for miscarriage? That is completely incorrect. Miscarriage may happen for reasons out of your control, such as a genetic defect that has nothing to do with your health or lifestyle.
- Your body needs a long rest after miscarriage: this is true, but it doesn’t have to be a very long rest. Modern studies indicate that women that got pregnant during the 6 month following miscarriage faced less risk of losing the fetus than those that waited for a longer time before trying to conceive. What do you think?
- Keep silent after miscarriage: no, forget about this forever. It’s very important that you talk about it to your mother or a trusted relative. You may benefit from their experience, or it could at least be psychologically comforted. Of course, consulting your doctor is your number one priority.
- The next pregnancy may not be successful: this is wrong 100%. Even though the experience is painful, you shouldn’t lose hope. Even women who are over 35 and have had 3 consecutive miscarriages have the chance to get pregnant again by up to 70%. Cheer up.
