Miscarriage is the name given to losing a pregnancy before the 20th week. It can happen out of a variety of reasons and it is assumed to be very frequent. Miscarriages that happen in a couple of weeks from conception are often not noticed by women who mistake them with a late period. Miscarriage can be of several types. There is the threatened miscarriage (in most of the cases everything goes well), the inevitable miscarriage (continuous bleeding of the uterus that can’t be stop and eventually leads to lost pregnancy) and delayed miscarriage (the fetus has no vital signs).
The most common miscarriage cause is abnormal fetal development or a genetic abnormality. The last one usually occurs in women aged over 35. The health problems of the mother (diabetes, high blood pressure, infections, and thyroid problems) can also lead to miscarriage. Sometimes miscarriage causes include stress, a powerful emotional shock, exposure to toxic substances, smoking, use of drugs etc. In some women miscarriage is recurrent. This is usually caused by chronic medical condition, by diseases like polycystic ovary syndrome or by genetic problems in parents.
Miscarriage symptoms are often related with bleeding. It might be severe, but this is not compulsory and it might also be preceded by a brown vaginal discharge. Every pregnant woman should be aware of the fact that she needs to see a doctor if vaginal bleeding occurs.
There are natural home remedies for miscarriage that a woman can try on her own and there are also useful things that each woman should take into account for preventing miscarriage. However, it is important to seek professional help in case miscarriage occurs in order to make sure that everything is done to ensure your health. Root of false unicorn is an efficient natural home remedy. It relieves cramps and it is also helpful in conditions of the thyroid gland. Wild yam is efficient in women affected by infections, as well as squaw tea. Cramp bark is an herb that provides relief from abdominal cramps. Ginger, asparagus and fenugreek seeds are taken by women who experience vomiting and other disorders related to the digestive system.
Pregnant women need to ensure to themselves and the unborn baby enough vitamins and minerals. They need to have a healthy diet and to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. Rest is important and stress should be avoided by all means. Miscarriage can be a traumatizing experience, but women need to overcome it.
