Miscarriage or spontaneous abortion

Common Questions and Answers about Miscarriage or spontaneous abortion


Avatar n tn I'm guessing you had what was called a "spontaneous abortion" (the more common word is "miscarriage") where your body aborted your baby.? This happens when there are abnormalities of the embryo, and these usually can not be prevented. More than likely sex did not cause your miscarriage. Did you already have the doctor confirm your pregnancy, or did you just take a HPT?
Avatar f tn You're entitled to your opinion, rlt123 and I won't argue with you. A medically necessary abortion when the baby's life or the mother's life is in jeapordy isn't like "birth control". It's just necessary for survival. That isn't considered a routine abortion. An actual medical doctor, no abortionist, performs that in a hospital. So I am not opposed to that. However, I've read stories from rape victims who either kept their babies or given them up for adoption.
Avatar f tn I'm out of province and can't see my doctor for awhile. Wondering if anyone has had a similar episode? Wondering if it was a spontaneous abortion....
1414894 tn?1288772640 By maintaining the womb lining, dydrogesterone is also useful in helping prevent miscarriage (spontaneous abortion) in women who have suffered repeated miscarriages or who may miscarry. Dydrogesterone is usually taken on selected days during the menstrual cycle, depending upon the disorder that is being treated. What is it used for?
Avatar f tn I work in the medical field and we do call them abortions. Either missed or spontaneous. Well, those are the natural ones. I still hate the word,especially with 3 under my belt. :( Sorry for your loss, I did not take the pill but wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss and know that you are strong and will be ready again soon.
Avatar n tn You know, in my country, there's not term for miscarriage, it is called abortion either way. Miscarriage would be called 'natural abortion', so i guess it's all somewhat linked. I just wanted to make sure she doesn't feel like it's her fault. I've often felt that way and it is awful!! =( Anyway, good luck to you!
Avatar n tn some think it is insane, and there can NEVER be anything that will replace that loss of an abortion or a miscarriage, but having another baby i think would help myself and my fiancee with this emptiness and sadness we feel. We want a family of our own, and it is our lives so we are going for it. and to you, if you are ready and it is what u truly want, then i say, GOOD LUCK and i hope u get whatever it is you desire. hang in there.
Avatar f tn So I posted last week about how a blood clot came out and I was bleeding for a tiny bit. I later went to the hospital and they diagnosed me with a spontaneous abortion because the baby was not visible at 7 weeks old on my ultrasound. Sooo my question is...am I having a miscarriage because..I had to take another follow up test which was an hcg quant yesterday and it has risen from 36887 to 55123. So what could be going on is my question am I still having a miscarriage or what?
1502656 tn?1289922358 If it's sac with fluid there is a possibility that it's a blithed ovum, it usually ends up being a spontaneous abortion meaning it ends up in miscarriage. Unfortunately it happens eventually, that was me a few years ago but my dr gave me the option of doing a d&c or waiting and it takes care of itself, so I waited and it happen to miscarriage sadly.
Avatar n tn I had that - It was called a missed abortion or missed miscarriage. I hated the term missed abortion. I cried and said THAT IS NOT WHAT I HAD!!!!!! It was hard to deal with that termanolgy.
Avatar n tn I was told there's no embryo, nor a yolk sac and definitely no cardiac activity and it seems a spontaneous abortion. I wonder if there was anything that could have prevented that from happening. I've been told this is very common especially the first time. What are your experiences and do you have any tips?
Avatar n tn She was still inside me but I had to have a dnc or take pills to basically have abortion( i dont believe in abortion). I took the pills. My question is how long were we supposed to wait before my husband and I Have sex? But its Been a week since I had her and we had sex today (TMI I Know). so what does that do? what are the chances of infection or getting pregnant? we didnt use any protection or any method to prevent it.This was my first baby and his first baby. Thanks for all you help.
Avatar n tn spontaneous miscarriage, induced miscarriage (with a medication called misoprostol) or dilation and curettage. You should be seen by an ob/gyn to confirm the status of the pregnancy and then discuss with you the options on how to proceed. Best regards, Dr.
Avatar f tn Cramping and vaginal bleeding are the most common symptoms noticed with spontaneous abortion. The cramping and bleeding may be very mild, moderate, or severe. There is no particular pattern as to how long the symptoms will last. Vaginal bleeding during early pregnancy is often referred to as a "threatened abortion.
Avatar f tn If not offered by your OB, please request a full biopsy (incl. immunological biopsy of placenta) because spontaneous miscarriage at this stage indeed is rare. There might be some hidden maternal health culprit (e.g. high NK, APA, clotting disorders, etc.). It would be nice to investigate as thorough as possible to prevent same thing recur in the future. Best wishes!
572025 tn?1217125332 Which I am taking this as meaning Incomplete Spontaneous Abortion. They have not offered ultra sound, or anything to determine if everything has left my body. I am confused, and worried. I called another OB/GYN and they said they should of done an ultrasound.....when they found out I was pregnant and didn't know when I concieved. Sorry you may have to look at previous posts to understand my situation....
Avatar n tn I don't want to scare you off hurt your feelings at all but it sounds like an ectopic pregnancy or what they call a spontaneous abortion (same thing as miscarriage) As long as your only a few weeks your Dr can give you methotrexate shots to stop the cell growth in your tube. Lots of blood tests & maybe 1-3 shots. If your hcg level is dropping on its own they may just let you pass it without any meds.
331422 tn?1309930249 I have had similar symptoms post spontaneous abortion. Did you ever get results to explain yours? And have they resolved at all?
Avatar n tn It's known to cause spontaneous abortion. However, since then, I have had my thyroid removed and take replacement hormones, and my levels are all great. I had a chemical miscarriage (#3 if you're keeping count) back in March. Just this past August, I became pregnant again, and my fiance and I were thrilled - we hadn't been trying, but hadn't been preventing either. He has wanted a baby for a long time, and I have just recently gotten ready.
Avatar n tn The miscarriage was only diagnosed with vaginal ultrasound as I NEVER had any bleeding or pain. It has been roughly 3 weeks since my D&C and I bled for 2 weeks afterwards (thought it would never stop). My doctor told me that she thought my period was amongst the post-surgical bleeding that lasted 2 weeks but it wasn't as heavy as my normal periods. I am fairly regular and the after D&C period arrived right on time then.
Avatar f tn I've heard that you are more fertile after a miscarriage- does anyone know if this is true or just rumor for someone who would really like that to be true (me)?! The bleeding has pretty much stopped, though it picks up a bit after sex but then stops again, so I think my body is done getting rid of everything... Has anyone else had a m/c and conceived shortly after? I'd love some stories that would envoke hope :) Thanks!
Avatar n tn Hi, Here are two studies that researched male alcohol intake and correlations to spontaneous abortion (i.e., miscarriage).

Avatar n tn it normally means 2 cycles. i had a natural m/c ans they said 1 cycle is ok to ttc but only if periods are regular, thats why they tell you to wait longer i think.
Avatar f tn I am 10 weeks pregnant with my 4th child. On started out of the blue I started having heavy bleeding. Heavier than a period and it started with a bit of a gush. I went to the ER. They examined me, said my cervix was open and that I had miscarried. They even wrote "spontaneous abortion" on my discharge paper and told me to follow up with my doctor. Well my heavy bleeding lasted several hours and then tapered off to more of a period like bleeding.
Avatar n tn I painted my finger nails and used 100% Acetone the night of my miscarriage. I didn't think anything of it. But now that I am dwelling on it, it's causing me to be very concerned. I have read varying answers about Acetone relating to miscarriage. Most everything I have read suggests it's harmless. But I have also read a few other claims suggesting since Acetone is highly toxic, it is harmful to the fetus. And can lead to miscarriage. I'm having trouble finding any conclusive answers.
Avatar m tn It can be a daunting thing to think about getting pregnant after miscarriage because of the fear of a second recurrence. A miscarriage, referred to by doctors as a spontaneous abortion, is the loss of a pregnancy before around twenty weeks. It is believed (according to the American Society of Reproductive Medicine) that as many as twenty five percent of known pregnancies will miscarry. This rate may be even higher as many women will miscarry before they are even aware of the pregnancy.
Avatar n tn I had a missed miscarriage. Went in for a check up at 14 weeks and Dr. couldn't find a heart beat. They said the baby died or stopped growing 2 weeks ago. Waited 2 weeks and then went in for a D and C. I am now pregnant again at about 15 weeks and still worried that something could go wrong or I'll miscarry without knowing it. I've had 2 ultrasounds and everthing looks normal but am still very scared that something will happen again.
Avatar n tn Now my nurse told me to discontinue as they expect a miscarriage or ectopic. I have to be back next week if I don't start my period. Any advice.. Has anyone continue with pregnancy even when HCG dropped in the initial weeks?
Avatar n tn Jan 02 chem m/c, May 02 missed m/c @ 11 weeks, Dec 02 spontaneous abortion @ 9 weeks, and now very low and not doubling hcg so blighted ovum or whatever you want to call it. I have been tested twice now for all the recurrent m/c tests...everything is normal! Of course! Though I am glad I want some answers. I don't know what to do next! I am starting to feel like I am never going to have another baby and my chances are getting smaller w/ every m/c. What tests should I demand next?
