Signs of a frozen pregnancy after IVF
The following symptoms may indicate this pathology:
- traumatic pain in the lower back or lumbar region;
- temperature increase;
- the appearance of bloody discharge;
- a suddenly disappeared toxicosis;
- cramping pains in the lower abdomen;
- lower basal temperature;
- lack of palpitation of the fetus;
- decrease in the volume of the abdomen;
- a change in the mammary glands (they stop swelling and return their old form).
If you find one or more of the above characteristics in yourself, then immediately contact your local gynecologist. To make an accurate diagnosis, the doctor, as a rule, prescribes a direction for the analysis of hCG and listens to the heartbeat of the fetus using ultrasound. Do not exclude a gynecological examination of the woman on the chair. If the level of progesterone has dropped, and the baby is not heard in the womb, the prognosis is disappointing. Most likely, the fetus stopped developing and froze. Unfortunately, the genetic factors that negatively affect the bearing of a child, hormonal disorders of a pregnant woman, and even the age of a future mother can become the reasons for such a tragedy. Women after 35 years of age often fall into the risk group of a stiff pregnancy. Other pathologies that provoke fading of the fetus include the presence of infectious diseases (rubella, chicken pox), violent immune reaction of the organism, antiphospholipid syndrome, abnormal lifestyle and diabetes mellitus. Early abortions also affect pregnancy, since in such a woman the epithelium of the uterus can be damaged or deformed.
What should I do if I am pregnant after IVF?
It is important to understand that the deceased embryo begins to decompose, and this leads to intoxication of the body. If the toxins come in for a long period, the woman will have blood clotting and bleeding will occur. Developing sepsis, inflammation of the uterus, and this in the future can interfere with the onset of pregnancy.
Often when fetal fetal spontaneous miscarriage occurs. But if this did not happen, the fetus is removed from the uterine cavity by surgeons. In the early stages (up to 8 weeks) resort to vaccum aspiration. If fetal fading occurred in the second or third trimester, then scraping the uterine cavity. The operation is under general anesthesia. Then, two weeks later, a control ultrasound is performed to reveal the remains of the embryo and check the degree of uterine contraction.
Determine the causes of fading pregnancy can be based on the genetic material of the fetus. Based on these results, the next pregnancy is planned with IVF. Also, a woman is recommended to do a hormonal and immunological examination. After that, the doctor will prescribe the necessary treatment to exclude the repeated fading of the fetus with new attempts of IVF.
We draw your attention to the fact that even after a stiff pregnancy it is important to believe and not to lose hope. There are cases, when women gave birth to healthy children after 2-3 similar failures. The next IVF after such a pathology is done no earlier than in six months. During this time the body will recover and will be ready for fertilization. Before you make a new attempt, you will have to undergo a complete examination, carefully monitor your health and follow all the doctor's instructions.
We believe that your efforts will certainly succeed, and in 9 months you will be holding a newborn baby.
Believe in a miracle, and it will surely happen!
