4 Commonly Asked Questions About Miscarriages

IVF

If you have been through a miscarriage, you know how emotionally devastating it can be, especially if you do not know why it occurred. It gets worse if the miscarriage was not your first. Fortunately, modern medicine can provide answers and infertility treatment to overcome conditions that may cause miscarriages.

Here are the most commonly asked questions about miscarriages.

What are the most common causes of miscarriage?

Miscarriage can be caused by several reasons –

  • Hormonal issues –A disease in which the thyroid hormone is not produced properly can prevent normal fetus development.
  • Physical problems within the mother –An anatomic miscarriage is caused due to problems within the anatomy of the mother and can be present from birth or acquired over time.
  • Immune problems –Failures within the immune system also prohibit a successful pregnancy.
  • Chromosomal abnormalities –A chromosomal abnormality may also be the cause of miscarriage, in which the embryo either has too many or too few chromosomes.
  • Infection

Can PCOS contribute to a miscarriage?

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) has been shown to increase the rate of miscarriage in natural conceptions. By using infertility treatment to balance your hormones, the probability of miscarriage can be reduced.

What are the chances of getting pregnant after a miscarriage?

Your chances will vary. If you have been trying for over 6 to 12 months without success, you should consider infertility treatment. If you have had two or more consecutive miscarriages, you should go through a complete work-up to evaluate recurrent pregnancy loss. A high percentage of women who have had two miscarriages go on to conceive successfully.

Does the probability of having another miscarriage go up after one miscarriage?

Having one miscarriage does not necessarily mean you will have another one. The risk may be there but many causes can be overcome successfully with modern infertility treatment at leading fertility clinics, such as Pacific Reproductive Center in Los Angeles.
