Planning pregnancy after miscarriage

When and how to plan a pregnancy after a miscarriage?

The reasons for miscarriage can be many. The doctor will prescribe a survey and determine what exactly triggered the spontaneous abortion. Among the most common causes of miscarriages are hormonal disorders, physiological pathologies, poor health of women, immunological incompatibility of partners, genetic disorders, stress, etc.

Miscarriages are indeed possible with an excess of male hormones. The first signs of hyperandrogenism, this is the name of this state, is excessive hair on the legs, in the lower abdomen, on the face. If the doctors found that a particular pair had spontaneous abortion due to hormonal disorders, when planning the next pregnancy, you should donate blood for hormones and daily urine for "17-KS." Perhaps, the woman will prescribe the drug Dexamethosone, which neutralizes the increased amount of male hormones.

If the health of the mother for some reason leaves much to be desired, serious problems can arise, both with conception and with bearing. This includes diseases transmitted sexually (chlamydia, mycoplasmosis, uroplasmosis, etc.). Before a new pregnancy, you need to take tests for these infections and, if necessary, be treated. And this applies to both women and men. When, if the cause of miscarriage was the presence of a chronic disease (diabetes, thyroid problems, etc.), you need to undergo a full medical examination, as well as a survey from a specialized specialist.

In case of immunological incompatibility, a woman is prescribed a course of immunotherapy, after which the pregnancy that has come about is proceeding safely.

If the doctor suspects that the cause of spontaneous abortion is genetic disorders, the couple will have to undergo special chromosome tests. In this case, it is necessary to consult a geneticist. It is also required to visit this specialist if one of the spouses in the family had relatives with genetic disorders: Down's disease, sickle-cell anemia, muscle dystrophy and the like.

Bad habits, such as smoking and drinking alcohol, one should say a hard "no!", as they also cause a miscarriage. Probably, the originator of spontaneous abortion is a man (adenomas and prostatitis lead to a disorder of spermatogenesis, and consequently, to genetic changes in the fetus), so he should also undergo a comprehensive examination.

At the stage of re-planning it is very important to provide a woman with a quiet environment, eliminating stress, overwork. If the woman is psychologically still attached to the unsuccessful pregnancy, takes sedatives, then you should know that if you try to get pregnant again, she should replace the medicines with more sparing herbal tinctures. There is a psychological problem associated with the death of the fetus in the womb: the woman subconsciously waits, that the misfortune will happen again, so be in a state of constant stress. The depressive state is especially aggravated in women who have no children yet, as well as those to whom the conception was given at a high price (after long-term infertility treatment, etc.).

A woman who survived a miscarriage should watch her food was full, start taking special vitamin preparations, primarily folic acid and vitamin E. It also needs to be extremely cautious: to reduce physical exertion, and exorbitant - during pregnancy - to exclude altogether.

When can I try to conceive again? Experts advise not before six months or a year. By this time, not only bodily, but also mental wounds will heal. Practice shows, that often a new pregnancy occurs 2-3 months after a spontaneous abortion. This is in case if the rehabilitation period went smoothly and without complications, and morally the woman is ready for a new pregnancy. Sometimes, as we already wrote, the couple is afraid of a repetition of the tragedy and does not dare to try again. Sometimes, on the contrary, after an interrupted pregnancy, they want to try to conceive a child as soon as possible. Here is what one forum woman writes about this: "By myself I know that right after the miscarriage, there is a feeling that you need to get pregnant as soon as possible. Well, how to bring life back to normal, at a time when everything was right. You were preparing to become a mother with all your being, when everything was so abrupt, and this is a heavy blow to the psyche, first of all (I do not know if I understand myself clearly). Personally, I am deeply convinced that this must be experienced, that the grief needs to be burned, it is necessary to calm down (it took me about 3 months), and only then try to become pregnant! ". Conclusion suggests this: do not rush. The main criterion in this matter is your moral and physical readiness.

Finally I want to say: if you have a miscarriage, do not blame yourself. Yes, this is a bitter reality, but life does not end there. And although now you are classed as a "risk group", do not despair, because you know what to do. Drive bad thoughts away, tune in to positive things, and if all the doctor's prescriptions are followed, very soon a new life will arise under your heart.
