Miscarriage & Recurrent Miscarriage

Posted by: Santa Monica Fertility   •   Categories: Trying to Conceive,


What is you have recurrent miscarriage? A single miscarriage is not usually a cause for concern from a medical standpoint but consecutive miscarriages can happen too, although they are rare, occurring in less than 5% of women. If you experience two or more miscarriages of in a row, you may wish to seek assistance from a reproductive specialist, such as a fertility doctor.

Most pregnancies simply end because of random chromosomal abnormalities in the egg or the developing embryo. Recurrent miscarriages can be physically difficult and emotionally devastating. But not knowing why this problem is happening can be even more distressing. Patients may experience feelings of self-blame, failure, or desperation. It is important for patients to seek emotional support during this time. Professional mental health support will also be beneficial for patients coping with recurrent loss and those who have been trying to conceive under stressful situations. Fortunately, most women trying to conceive do go on to carry a healthy pregnancy to term after a miscarriage.

So what can you do? Besides seeing a fertility specialist, following a healthy lifestyle including good nutrition & diet, weight control, prenatal supplementation, relaxing exercises, rest, acupuncture, and general self care is the best course of action for women who wish to increase their chances of a normal pregnancy in the future.
