Curing Miscarriages

Couples commonly have a single miscarriage, and the first question is how to prevent this from happening again. Statistics tell us that you have about a one in a hundred chance of a spontaneous pregnancy loss occurring more than once, and a new study released at the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine in San Fransisco in March of 2012, there may now be new data for a successful treatment strategy. Women are labeled as having a problem of recurrent miscarriages (habitual aborter in medical terms) if they actually have three or more miscarriage. In the past we did not even recommend testing, or treatment, if in fact a woman had less than 3 miscarriages, as the chance of finding a treatable condition was so remote. Thus being able to prevent a miscarriage is one of the great unsolved challenges of the gyno today. They estimate that since about half of all pregnancies conceived end in miscarriages, many of which are no more than chemical pregnancies (only positive test with no fetus seen), between 25-25% of women have a miscarriage in their life. Such a common problem, when taken as a whole group thus takes a great toll on women's bodies and emotions. Fortunately for most couples this is a one time occurrence, and not repeated. Then the 1/100 chance it will become a chronic problem; and for this group who has one miscarriage after another it has been a mystery as to both the cause and the cure. Now the researchers suggest that you take the 81 mg of aspirin along with the recommended daily folic acid, and it will lower your chance of having a repeat early miscarriage. Aspirin is not without side effects, and we suggest you first talk to your gyno before utilizing this treatment.  When you have had 3 or more miscarriages we get you in to do check ups to see if we can figure out why, but only about 1/3 cases can even be given an answer that might be explained. The egg you happened to fertilize may have been the problem, and for most healthy women during her fertile years of age 15-45 she has other healthy eggs to ovulate so that no cure is actually necessary. However there are other problems that aspirin will not cure including hormone issues with ovulation, endocrine disorders, blood clotting problems, problems with the anatomy of the uterus as well as medications that can produce miscarriages, and for that your gyno can help with finding a miscarriage cure.
