Miscarriage: Symptoms and causes
Signs and symptoms
Try not to have constant anxiety and fear of miscarriage during the early stages of your pregnancy. Keep in mind that there are clear signs that can indicate it when it happens.
- Vaginal bleeding where the blood color is pure.
- Sudden disappearance of some pregnancy symptoms, such as sore breast, nausea and vomiting episodes.
- Contractions similar to labour contractions after 12 weeks of pregnancy
If you clearly notice any of these symptoms, you should head to the hospital or doctor’s clinic immediately, as you’ll need to undergo an ultrasound scan, a blood test, and a vaginal test, which will allow your doctor to know if your pregnancy is going to continue or not.
If you do miscarry before 10 weeks of your pregnancy have passed, you can take medication to treat the problem. But if you miscarry later on in your pregnancy, then you will have to undergo a curettage procedure to dispose of the pregnancy remnants.
– Do you want to avoid miscarriage? Unfortunately, that’s not possible if it happens for genetic reasons. In this case, the fetus can’t continue to grow naturally. That’s the most common cause for losing the baby.
– You may also miscarry if you have health problems such as blood coagulation, uterine fibroids, or uterine abnormalities.
– The chances of miscarriage also increase if you go through an accident that causes the placenta to detach.
– You may also miscarry if you drink too much coffee.
After a miscarriage, you’ll undoubtedly be grieving. Feelings of emptiness, injustice, anger and guilt will take you over. Your husband will be frustrated and unable to find a solution for a problem.
It’s important that you talk to him about it, and that each of you expresses their concerns; this helps relieve the burden off your shoulders.
