About twenty percent of pregnant women go through miscarriage. So, how to prevent it? Read this post to see how you can prevent it and know how to identify the signs that could lead to miscarriage.
I don’t think any woman likes to think about miscarriage while going into a pregnancy, everyone wants to be optimistic and they actually look forward for the baby to arrive into their family. But the sad part is, one among five pregnancies lead to miscarriage.
A miscarriage ends up with the termination of pregnancy that can be very important during the early stages. You can call miscarriages as a natural abortion that is considered as an accident in pregnancy. There are two types of abortions, one is natural one which we call miscarriage and other one is done after the advice from doctor. In most cases abortion happens during twentieth week when the fetus is already grown. Miscarriages can be very serious and lead to severe complications and cause cramps and unusual bleeding. In some cases the uterus has constant bleeding and there is no medication for this problem.
So, how can you identify the symptoms of miscarriage, what can you do when you doubt you are having miscarriage and is there anything that you can do to prevent it? But before going into these details let’s see the causes. If a woman is above 35 years, she can normally face this problem because of genetic abnormalities. Miscarriage may occur due to exposure to poisonous substances, which may also lead to some severe complications as well. Drugs and alcohol consumption can cause miscarriages. Exposure to stress or injury to uterus can cause miscarriage in women. Diabetes is also one of the causes of miscarriages. Excessive consumption of birth control pills can also lead to miscarriage. The severe signs of miscarriage are constant cramps, blood clotting and constant bleeding.
There are some remedies that can be made at home and they can be helpful in fighting this problem. Miscarriage can be prevented through herbal medicines. You can get relief from cramps with the help of root of false unicorn. Squaw tea is helpful if you can drink it on regular basis. Ginger is known to make pregnant woman feel good and it eliminates vomiting sensation. For strong muscles, pregnant woman should drink Raspberry juice. Apart from all these things, medical help is very important during pregnancy.
Starting in the initial stages: lowering the chances of miscarriage during the period of preconception
Taking proper care of your health is very important during the time when you are trying to get pregnant, and throughout your pregnancy. Consuming a folic acid supplement of 400 mg regularly will increase the fertility in a woman and it also helps in reducing the risk of spina bifida, which is a neural tube defect. Quitting alcohol consumption and smoking will also reduce the risk of miscarriage.
Consumption any other drugs should be avoided completely, women who are trying to get conceive should talk with the doctor about any type of prescription drugs they are taking. All drugs or medications are not recommended during pregnancy or while trying to conceive, and some may lead to birth defects in babies.
Infections that could affect a fetus: Apart from eating various healthy diet there is one more thing that can reduce miscarriage during initial stages of pregnancy. When you decide to conceive and stop your birth control, you should make yourself well-informed about infections that could affect a fetus inside you. The most common infections are toxoplasmosis, salmonella and listeria. So, you better stay away from eggs, dairy products, fish and raw meat. Avoid cats if possible and don’t garden without using gloves. Make sure you see your doctor and ask if you need any booster vaccines.
Staying healthy and strong, and being aggressive in parts of your life that you can have control, will reduce the chances of having miscarriage to some extent. Unluckily, many miscarriages are caused by defects of chromosomes and other situations, which means the fetus is not strong enough to sustain birth or even the pregnancy.
In case if you have a miscarriage, you should know that there is nothing to blame yourself for that, though miscarriage is sad, but it is very common.
