Miscarriages are excruciatingly painful and distressing. Women typically have a difficult time adjusting to their loss.
Miscarriages are frequently caused by factors that cannot be explained or identified. Even so, there are a few known causes and therapies that can help couples have hope and try again for a successful pregnancy.
Dr. Himali describes some of the causes of miscarriages and how to cure them in this article.
Dr. Himali works at the Nisha IVF hospital in Ahmedabad, which is one of the best IVF clinics in the city, with a world-class facility and highly qualified and competent doctors and personnel.
What is the definition of a recurrent miscarriage?
A recurrent miscarriage occurs when a woman has three or more pregnancy losses in a row.
Recurrent miscarriage can be caused by a variety of factors.
Dr. Himali Maniar discusses the causes, diagnosis, and management of recurrent miscarriage.
1. Genetic (chromosomal) disorder
When one of the chromosomes has a defect, genetic miscarriage occurs. As a result of this issue, many couples have miscarriages.
Diagnosis: Both partners’ Karyotypes(Karyotyping is the process of pairing and arranging all of an organism’s chromosomes, resulting in a genome-wide snapshot of an individual’s chromosomes).
IVF with P.G.D (uses IVF, in which several eggs are matured and retrieved) and picking out normal embryos could be a potential treatment for this reason.
2. The influence of age:
Recurrent miscarriages are caused by a variety of reasons, including age. This is a problem that can affect women over the age of 35.
The doctor will examine you and do an ovarian reserve test.
Egg donation, IVF with Pgd, CoQ10, and DHEAS are some of the treatments available.
(PGD – involves the use of IVF, which involves the maturation and retrieval of several eggs.)
(CoQ10 – Coenzyme Q10, or CoQ10, is a fat-soluble antioxidant found in all human cells, with the highest concentration in the mitochondria. Because it strengthens the immune system, Coenzyme Q10 may be effective in cancer treatment.)
(DHEAS – Dehydroepiandrosterone-sulfate (DHEA-S) is a steroid hormone produced mostly by the adrenal cortex, the outer region of the two adrenal glands located slightly above the kidneys; DHEAS inhibits 17ß-pro-metastatic estradiol’s and proliferative activities on MCF-7 breast cancer cells)
3. Endocrine system
If the woman has endocrine problems such as hypothyroidism or diabetes mellitus, she may lose the pregnancy.
Thyroid or arsenal tests are used to make a diagnosis.
The doctor will prescribe medication to treat thyroid and pituitary disorders. Meditation and acupuncture may also be recommended by your doctor.
Infections are number four.
- Both bacterial vaginosis (B.V.) and chronic endometritis (C.E.) are infections that can lead to miscarriage.
- Hysteroscopy and endometrial biopsy for T.B. culture were used to make the diagnosis.
- Treatment: The doctor may undertake surgery to remove the infection’s scar tissue. In addition, the doctor will prescribe antibiotics to treat the infections.
- Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a kind of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
In today’s world, PCOS affects a large number of women. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms of PCOS, it is critical that you see a doctor and receive treatment.
An insulin tolerance test and an ultrasound test will be recommended as part of your diagnosis.
Pcos can be greatly reduced by adopting a healthy lifestyle that includes exercising, eating well, and decreasing weight. To combat PCOS, your doctor will prescribe various nutrients and vitamins.
Environmental factors are number six.
Smoking, alcohol intake, drug usage, and caffeine overdose are all variables that contribute to miscarriages.
Diagnosis: A screening test will be performed by the doctor to identify potentially dangerous environmental factors.
Treatment: You’ll be urged to stay away from all hazardous substances in your environment and to live a healthy lifestyle.
Immune factors number seven.
A reduced immunological tolerance towards the foetus or the placenta could be the cause of some miscarriages.
- Lupus anticoagulants (a type of antibody produced by your body’s immune system) and an antibody test will be suggested by the doctor.
- Heparin and aspirin would be the treatments for immunological factors.
- Other variables that may contribute to a recurrent miscarriage include:
- Cervix weakness
- The womb’s construction
- Physiological variables
- Thrombophilia is a blood disorder that affects both men and women (blood condition)
- Defect in the luteal phase
