There is a probability for miscarriage within 10
weeks of conception
if the miscarriage is caused by hormonal factors. The low progesterone levels
are usually found to be the root cause and the situation is compounded by the
fact that the progesterone suppositories may not actually help in saving the
pregnancy. The pregnancy
already becomes nonviable and these drugs actually delay the termination.
The drugs can help only when the defect is in the
luteal phase, that is, when the corpus luteum that develops around the egg
during ovulation fails to produce the hormones required to sustain the
pregnancy. It needs to be noted here, low progesterone levels means that the
pregnancy is nonviable and NOT the cause.
When there is a problem with the thyroid glands and
the hormones are either above or below the expected levels, miscarriage occurs.
The problem arises when the thyroid condition goes untreated, whereas, the
situation can easily be treated and controlled if diagnosed on time.
The first cell forms with the incision of the egg
The egg and sperm can have the perfect chromosomes but after a couple of cell
divisions, there can occur some abnormality; the reasons for which are largely
ambiguous. The newly fertilised
can even die causing a miscarriage and according to statistics over 60% of the
miscarriages that occur within a few weeks of conception is caused by this
Problems Concerning the Uterus or Cervix
Some women can have an unusual uterine shape; in
some the cervix might not strong enough owing to several factors like due to
the usage of certain medications. These can lead to early labours and the
chances of miscarriage escalate by 12% during the 12 to 24 weeks of pregnancy.
The problem arises when the fetus begins to develop rapidly and it cannot
accommodate itself inside the irregularly shaped uterus. It is also caused when
the uterus stops expansion, and/or the weak cervix suddenly bursts thereby
letting the baby out. With a timely corrective surgery and a cervical stitch
these complications can be effectively treated.
Doctors are yet not unanimous about the cause and
treatment of immunity disorders. Many reproductive endocrinologists claim that
the pregnancy of 80% women, who have already experienced miscarriage due to
this factor, can be saved once the point is taken care of. Here are a few
antibodies that need to be administered to avoid miscarriages:
Antibodies â€“ They prevent blood clot in placenta which can lead to
Antibodies - They help in controlling the auto-immune disease where the
body begins to attack itself.
- Fetal Blocking
Antibodies â€“ It protects the baby from the motherâ€™s immune system, where
the antibodies from the egg turn hostile to the fatherâ€™s sperm taking it
to be a foreign body.
There can be a host of other causes leading to
miscarriage like advanced age, infections, common illnesses that are left
untreated and even accidents.
