Getting Pregnant After Miscarriage Proven Ways To Safeguard Your Next Pregnancy
The thought of getting pregnant after a miscarriage can leave you feeling frightened and scared for the simple fact that you are not sure if it would not repeat itself.
Unfortunately, it is a sad reality of life but miscarriages occur at a surprising high rate of about one in every three pregnancies.
Why do women miscarry?
There are 6 main reasons why a woman may miscarry her pregnancy and they are:
1. Chromosomal damage
2. Immune System and antibodies
3. Medical Disorders
4. Uterine Abnormalities
5. Hormonal Problems
It will be impossible to do justice to all 6 reasons in one article so we will look at the 2 most common ones: chromosomal damage and uterine abnormalities.
Chromosomal damage: a large percentage of early and first miscarriages are believed to be due to the chromosomal damage. Fortunately miscarriages due to chromosomal damage are not considered a recurring problem and thus the chance of another one due to the same reason is very small.
The other most common causes of miscarriages in the second trimester is what is what is referred to as incompetent cervix. This is basically a weak cervix that tends to dilate before the fetus has reached full term.
Sadly some women are born with congenital abnormalities of the uterus. This means that their uterus is shaped in such a way that the baby cannot grow big enough before it runs out of room and causes the cervix to dilate.
If your health practitioner suspects that a recurring miscarriage is due to an incompetent cervix, she will perform what is known as a hysterogram. This procedure is basically an X ray that uses injected dye to determine the shape of the uterus.
If you are really serious about getting pregnant after miscarriage, there are some simple steps you can take that will greatly increase the odds in your favour.
1. You must eliminate alcohol, smoking, drug consumption and that includes caffeine in tea, coffee and chocolate.
Ideally, you should have achieved all this a couple of months before you decide to try again and of course, it is important that you are at a very healthy weight.
2. The Use of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM):
The Chinese are famous for using natural herbs, herbal formulas, and herbal teas for addressing various types of issues and miscarriages is no exception.
One such herbal tea is Sang Ji Sheng. It is an excellent herb used to remedy all sorts of blood deficiency symptoms such as general body weakness, hot flashes, increase susceptibility to infections, shortness of breath, fatigue, dizziness, blurred vision, palpitation, anxiety, depression, high blood pressure, insomnia, nervousness just to mention a few.
It is also particularly good for pregnant women as it helps to secure the fetus and reduce the chances of a miscarriage. The recommended dosage is 15 grams once a day.
Now that you know one herb that you can use to safeguard your next pregnancy, the thought of getting pregnant after a miscarriage should no longer be daunting for you.
