A woman is termed to have had recurrent miscarriage or recurrent pregnancy loss when she has had two or more miscarriages. This is quite different from being infertile. The most common cause of a miscarriage is a fall on the abdomen, or injury to the fetus, heavy blood loss, etc. But, when the cause of the miscarriage is unknown, the pregnancy is medically evaluated to understand the underlying cause of the miscarriage. It is quite a traumatizing time when the woman who was until then pregnant, experiences the loss of the fetus. For this reason, we guide the woman who has recently miscarried and her husband in overcoming the trauma of the loss.
A woman’s advancing age is also considered as one of the risks for miscarriage. Women post 40 years of age are considered to be at higher risk for miscarriage than those blow 40 years of age.
Lack of immunity also contributes to miscarriage. This is because, during pregnancy, if a woman is afflicted with any kind of infection, she is more susceptible to miscarry if she has low immunity since she wouldn’t be able to fight off the infection. So, it is important for a pregnant woman to build up her immunity during the preconception stage and maintain the same level of immunity through the duration of her pregnancy so that she and the baby remain healthy.
In order to prevent further miscarriages, it is advised that the woman wanting to become pregnant once again should develop and lead a healthy lifestyle apart from supplementing her diet with folic acid. Folic acid is a recommended supplement because of its ability in aiding the development of red blood cells and it also helps in the development of the baby’s neural tube into her/his brain and spinal cord.
