Miscarriage is a spontaneous abortion of the fetus in a pregnancy. Vaginal bleeding or spotting may be common in the initial pregnancy, but other than that it is considered as a threatened miscarriage. Miscarriage occurs when a pregnancy ends without an obvious cause before the fetus is capable of survival. This is a common complication of pregnancy.

The separation of the fetus and placenta from the uterine wall is the cause of the end of a pregnancy. Some of the causes or reasons that lead to a miscarriage are as follow:

1. Chronic Illness: An abnormality in the mother during the second trimester of pregnancy can result in miscarriage. Chronic illnesses like high blood pressure, lupus, diabetes, kidney disease or thyroid problems can lead to spontaneous abortion.

2. Disease of Internal Organs: Abnormalities or diseases of the internal organs like fibroids, multiple gestations, poor muscle tone of womb and abnormal growth of the placenta can put your system under stress causing the pregnancy to end.

3. Acute Infections: Acute infections and emotional traumas can also result in the pregnancy to end.

4. Abnormal fetus: Most of the miscarriages in the first trimester are caused by abnormalities in the fetus. The genes are responsible for the abnormalities and this risk increases as the woman ages.

5. Apart from these, external factors like alcohol, drugs, caffeine and tobacco can also threaten a pregnancy.

The symptoms of this condition may be the following:

1. Bleeding: One can experience slight spotting or severe bleeding with blood clots.

2. Cramps: Cramps may be accompanied by pain in the lower abdomen. It may occur on one side or on both the sides or only in the middle region. The pain may radiate to the lower back, buttocks and the genitals.

3. Symptoms of pregnancy may end: The usual symptoms and signs of pregnancy like nausea and tenderness in the breast may end with an occurrence of a miscarriage.

One should visit the doctor if she experiences any of the above symptoms or any passing of tissue, weakness, pain while urinating or dizziness. The doctor may perform an examination, tests and an ultrasound.

The treatment for this condition can include some safe natural home remedies. Home remedies can be used to prevent miscarriage and continue a healthy pregnancy. Some of the natural home remedies to prevent ending of pregnancy are as follows:

1. Indian gooseberry juice taken every morning with honey is beneficial to prevent miscarriage.

2. Stop consumption of alcohol, tobacco and stop smoking as soon as you find out you are pregnant.

3. Drinking of raspberry tea everyday in helpful since the raspberry tea helps in strengthening the uterus and shortens labor.

4. Tea with nutmeg is effective for this condition.

5. Asafetida is helpful and is a simple natural home remedy.

6. Decoction of black gram with water is helpful in reducing the fear of miscarriage.

7. Asparagus is beneficial in treating the reproductive problems in women.

8. The diet of a pregnant woman should be healthy and nutritious and she should avoid unhealthy and unhygienic junk food.

9. Ascorbic acid in regulated quantity should be taken to prevent miscarriage.

Follow these natural home remedies to maintain a healthy pregnancy.

    How do you suffer enlarged heart to death?
    I am aware of being careful on how to stay more healthy, even if I gain or maintain weight. Some people die from any causes in a quick moment.

      Cardiomyopathy is a weakening of the heart muscle or a change in heart muscle structure. It is often associated with inadequate heart pumping or other heart function problems.
      Common causes of cardiomyopathy are:
      * Alcoholism and cocaine use
      * Amyloidosis
      * Chemotherapy drugs
      * Coronary artery disease
      * End-stage kidney disease
      * Genetic defects
      * High blood pressure (hypertension)
      * Infections due to viruses, HIV, Lyme disease, Chagas disease
      * Nutritional deficiencies (such as selenium, thiamine, calcium)
      * Pregnancy
      * Systemic lupus erythematosus
      Treatment may prolong the lifespan but ultimately some may require heart transplantation.
      Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is associated with thickening of the heart muscle, most commonly at the septum between the ventricles, below the aortic valve. This leads to stiffening of the walls of the heart and abnormal aortic and mitral heart valve function, both of which may impede normal blood flow out of the heart.
      Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy may cause sudden death in certain athletes. This type of disease is caused by hereditary/genetic factors. If one person is diagnosed for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, all his close relatives should be scanned for such type of disease.
      Peripartum cardiomyopathy is a rare disorder in which a weakened heart is diagnosed within the final month of pregnancy or within 5 months after delivery.

    Women who have used implanon, can you give me a review?
    I’m 16 and I’m horrible at keeping track of taking pills. My mom and I completely decided that was a no go. I used the nuva ring, but I felt like it made me way too emotional. I’ve looked at a lot of people that have used the implanon, and they said that it gives you horrible bleeding and you gain a decent amount of weight. How do you feel about implanon? It seems great since it works for 3 years.

    1. Know It All

      Everyone’s reaction to a medicine is different. It is difficult to predict which side-effects you will have from taking a particular medicine, or whether you will have any side-effects at all. The important thing is to tell your prescriber or pharmacist if you are having problems with your medicine.

      Very common: More than 1 in 10 people who take Implanon

      breast pain or tenderness
      irregular menstrual periods – seek medical advice if you continue to have irregular bleeding
      vaginal infections
      weight gain

      Common: More than 1 in 100 people who take Implanon

      appetite gain
      changes in emotions

      The frequency of these side-effects is unknown

      abscess, fibrosis or scarring at the site of insertion
      angioedema or worsening of angioedema
      bruising, irritation, pain or itching at the time of insertion or removal of Implanon
      decreased glucose tolerance
      ectopic pregnancy – seek medical advice if you have stomachpain or amenorrhoea
      increased growth of ovarian follicles
      liver problems
      movement or expulsion of Implanon – this may also happen if there is inflammation at the site of insertion
      raised blood pressure

      The frequency of these side-effects is unknown and has been reported in women who have taken combined oral contraceptives

      chloasma – seek medical advice if you develop chloasma. If you are prone to having chloasma, you should avoid exposure to the sun or ultraviolet light while using Implanon
      hormone-sensitive cancers such as breast cancer or livertumour
      may affect the results for certain tests
      thromboembolic problems such as deep vein thrombosis, arterial thromboembolism or pulmonary embolism – these problems may return in women who have a history of thromboembolic problems
      worsening of conditions that may occur during pregnancy or hormone treatment. These include: jaundice, itching, skin rashes, gallstones, porphyria, systemic lupus erythematosus, chorea, blood problems or hearing loss due to otosclerosis. Seek medical advice if you get any of these conditions

      In your case, these could be the causes of your suffering

      Thyroid problems

      Harsh chemicals (e.g. hair coloring, perms)

      Scarring from burns

      X-ray therapy

      Telogen hair effluvium (shedding) – This is basically due to some temporary physiological upset like:

      › After pregnancy

      › Side Effects of medication (e.g. anticoagulants, gout medication, antidepressives, contraceptives and excess
      Vitamin A)

      › Rapid weight loss

      › Reaction to illness or major surgery (e.g. sustained high fever, hair may fall out up to three months afterwards)

      › Reaction to chemotherapy

      › Emotional upsets

      Dietary deficiencies (e.g. iron deficiency)

      Fungal infections of the scalp (e.g. ringworm ‘tinea capitis’)



      Rarely, hair loss may be an early symptom of disease like diabetes or lupus.

      See if any of these is one of them

      There are several treatment options that may help to stimulate and encourage hair growth. If hair loss occurs as a result of an underlying condition or disease, then the condition needs to be treated first. The various types of hair loss are treated with specific medication which includes antibiotics, corticosteroids, or steroid injections. For more serious episodes of hair loss, surgical procedures such as hair transplants, scalp reduction or skin grafts may be performed to replace hair loss.

      Natural and holistic therapy offers a gentler alternative for people experiencing hair loss than the harsh effects of conventional medication. Treatments such as herbal and homeopathic remedies stimulate and encourage hair growth as well as support blood circulation, hormonal balance and thyroid functioning.

      Herbal remedies along with good nutritional diet (supplements in case of severe deficiency or if directed by your doctor) help hair grow stronger and more plentifully by nourishing it at the roots. They achieve this by stimulating blood flow and supplying nutrients to the hair follicles and hence promoting healthy hair growth and slowing down excessive hair loss. Although the process begins within a few days, as the hair grow slowly, the results are visible only after a few months.

      Herbs commonly used include Ginkgo biloba, Rosmarinus officinale and Xanthoxylum clavaherculis help to promote strong, abundant hair. Other powerful herbs such as Equisetum arvense, Avena sativa and Echinacea are effective combating hair loss and nourishing hair follicles.

      Hope all this helps

      Good Luck!

    How serious is Lupus during pregnancy?
    My daughter had preclampsia with her first pregnancy. She is approximately 9 wks. along and is showing signs of the condition already. Last week her doctor told her that current symptoms she is having all point to the possibility of Lupus. He ran some test, and said depending on the test results may decide to hospitalize her for a few days for further testing and begin a treatment plan. I am terribly worried for my daughter and her unborn baby. Just wondered if anyone out their has experienced somewhat the same, and looking for some feedback. Thank you in advance.

    1. TyrannosaurusBex

      Don’t worry. Lupus rarely affects the baby of a woman who has it, but it isn’t nice at all for the mother. Often women contract Lupus whilst pregnant or after they’ve had a baby, as Lupus is often triggered by this. I once knew a woman who had her Lupus at its very worse after she had her first baby. I’ve known 2 women with it, and the second one was so exhausted she spent most of a year in a wheelchair. But Lupus is rarely fatal nowadays, and it’s not disfiguring. They usually use steroids to treat it. (I’m not talking about illegal drugs, I’m talking about medical drugs that have nothing to do with muscle building). Lupus can range in severity. Your daughter’s baby will be fine.

      I’m not going to guarantee you that everything, including the baby, will be ship-shape and fine and dandy, but it is VERY likely. I know the woman above gave you some bad news about premature or ill babies, but the truth is, the two women I know have had 2 or more babies, all completely normal and healthy. Seriously. Not trying to make you feel better. Have a little faith, dear:) Good luck xxx

    Is there any medical reason that a woman would have to get an abortion?
    I am a college student writing a paper about abortions and how i am against them. I was wondering if there is any medical reason that a woman would have to have an abortion even if she didn’t want to. Any help would be appriciated.(:

    1. Libraryanna

      Lots of them. For some women, being pregnant can kill them – for example if they have an underlying disease like lupus, kidney disease, heart disease, etc. A misplaced embryo – ectopic. When the embryo or fetus has died and does not come out on its own. When the fetus is severely malformed or has serious genetic problems that will cause immediate death or a guaranteed death as a toddler after a prolonged painful illness. If the mother is found to have cancer or other disease where not treating can kill the mother. Eclampsia – which is a serious condition due to pregnancy – with high blood pressure, kidney failure, etc. The treatment is immediate delivery – which can result in fetal death.

      And let’s not forget the mental health of the mother.

    What can be causing my sever menstrual cramps?
    I have sever menstrual cramps. I had them since I started at age ten. After I had my first child, they went away but now they are back. This time it hurts severely on my right side, right above my leg. Naproxen and over the counter medicines do not help. The pain usually last about two days.

    Conceive after an accidental hemorrhage?
    My wife had an accidental hemorrhage of baby before 3 months due to which baby was delivered in 9th month but was a dead one.We are again planning to conceive. Are there chances of any complications due to the previous accidental hemorrhage?

      It may not be easy to tell what caused placenta abruptio. In fact, doctors can detect an exact cause in less than 5 out of 100 cases. Some causes (though rare) can include:
      # abdominal trauma from an automobile accident or a fall
      # sudden loss in size of the uterus, due to loss of amniotic fluid, or delivery of a first twin
      # abnormally short umbilical cord

      However, a woman is more at risk for this condition if she:
      # has had this condition before

      This condition is usually an emergency and requires treatment right away. Measures will be taken to keep the mother and infant healthy. This might include:
      # immediate and continuous internal fetal monitoring of the infant
      # IV fluids
      # monitoring of vital signs, such as blood pressure, heart rate, and urine output
      # “watchful management” if the fetus is not in distress, the mother’s vital signs are stable, and labor is not in motion. Some small abruptios will stop bleeding on their own.
      # vaginal delivery if the infant and mother are stable
      # cesarean section if the mother and infant are unstable
      # blood transfusion if signs of shock are present

      What are the side effects of the treatments?

      Because the treatments for this condition may be life-saving, the potential side effects should be weighed against the loss of life. It may take longer for a woman to recover from major abdominal surgery involved in a cesarean section. Risks for any surgery include bleeding, infection, and allergic reaction to the anesthesia.
      What happens after treatment for the condition?

      After delivery, the woman will be watched closely for signs of continued bleeding. This entails monitoring frequent CBC’s, evaluating clotting times, and watching vital signs. The surviving infant will likewise be observed in the intensive care unit.
      How is the condition monitored?

      If a woman is pregnant and develops any of the signs of this condition, she should call her doctor right away.
      # has preeclampsia, which is a condition that develops during pregnancy as a result of hypertension
      # has eclampsia, which is toxemia during pregnancy that becomes severe
      # has chronic high blood pressure
      # is older
      # has uterine distension from multiple pregnancies, or an excess of amniotic fluid
      # has had more than four children
      # has diabetes
      # has other medical conditions, such as systemic lupus erythematosus
      # smokes cigarettes
      # has more than 14 alcoholic drinks per week
      # uses cocaine
      # has a history of an attempted internal version, a procedure in which the obstetrician tries changing the baby’s position from breech to head first

      What are the long-term effects of the condition?

      This condition can result in:
      # the death of the mother
      # the death of the fetus
      # excessive bleeding leading to shock
      # a serious generalized bleeding problem called disseminated intravascular coagulopathy, or DIC
      # kidney failure, also known as renal failure
      # a liver disease called transfusion hepatitis
      # low muscle tone, called uterine atony, with continued bleeding
      # premature delivery, birth trauma, and risks associated with prematurity

      However, these results are rare. Maternal death occurs in less than 5 out of 100 women who have placenta abruptio. Fetal death rates are higher. The infant may die in as many as 20 to 35 percent of cases.
      What are the risks to others?

      This condition can be harmful to the fetus. The woman also has a higher risk of developing this condition during future pregnancies

      yep, regular doc first to get blood tests and rule out any underlying condition, then if everything is ‘normal’ except the hairloss- she/he’ll send you to a dermatologist- you may have alopecia. (alopecia is not dangerous btw,
      dermatologists are the people who deal with this)
      Oh, I found some causes of hairloss from the Mayo clinic (Mayo recommends dermatology as well as the U, where I work, recommends derm):
      Causes of temporary hair loss include:

      * Disease. Diabetes, lupus and thyroid disorders can cause hair loss.
      * Poor nutrition. Having inadequate protein or iron in your diet or poor nourishment in other ways can cause you to experience hair loss. Fad diets, crash diets and certain illnesses, such as eating disorders, can cause poor nutrition.
      * Medications. Certain drugs used to treat gout, arthritis, depression, heart problems and high blood pressure may cause hair loss in some people. Taking birth control pills also may result in hair loss for some women.
      * Medical treatments. Undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy may cause you to develop alopecia. After your treatment ends, your hair typically begins to regrow.
      * Recent high fever, severe flu or surgery. You may notice you have less hair three to four months after events such as an illness or surgery. These conditions cause hair to shift rapidly into a resting phase (telogen effluvium), meaning you’ll see less new hair growth. A normal amount of hair typically will appear after the growth phase resumes.
      * Infancy. Newborns often lose hair during the first several months of life. This baby hair (vellus) is eventually replaced by more permanent hair. It’s also common for babies to lose a patch of hair on the back of their heads from rubbing against mattresses, playpens and car seats. Hair will grow back once a baby begins to spend more time sitting up.
      * Childbirth. Some women experience an increase in hair loss several months after delivering a baby. This is because during pregnancy the hair is shifted into an active growth state that then goes back to baseline soon after delivery. This increased hair loss usually corrects itself.
      * Hair treatments. Chemicals used for dying, tinting, bleaching, straightening or perming can cause hair to become damaged and break off if they are overused or used incorrectly. Excessive hairstyling or hairstyles that pull your hair too tightly also can cause some hair loss. This is known as traction alopecia.
      * Scalp infection. Infections such as ringworm can invade the hair and skin of your scalp, leading to hair loss. Once infections are treated, hair generally regrows. Ringworm, a fungal infection, can usually be treated with a topical or oral antifungal medication.
