Miscarriage – Early


Early miscarriage, also known as spontaneous abortion, is the loss of a pregnancy before the 20th week. It is a common experience that affects many women, with up to 25% of pregnancies ending in miscarriage.
Early miscarriage can be caused by a variety of factors, including chromosomal abnormalities, hormonal imbalances, infections, autoimmune disorders, and anatomical issues. In some cases, the cause is unknown.
The symptoms of early miscarriage can vary, but may include vaginal bleeding, cramping, and the passing of tissue or clots. Some women may experience no symptoms at all.
To diagnose early miscarriage, a healthcare provider will perform a pelvic exam, review symptoms, and may order blood tests or an ultrasound. If a miscarriage is suspected, a follow-up ultrasound or other diagnostic tests may be recommended.
The treatment of early miscarriage depends on the individual situation. In some cases, no treatment is needed as the body naturally expels the pregnancy tissue. In other cases, medication or a procedure to remove the tissue may be recommended to prevent infection and ensure complete removal.


To help prevent early miscarriage, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle, including regular prenatal care, avoiding tobacco and alcohol, and managing chronic conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure.

It is important to seek medical attention if symptoms of early miscarriage occur, as it can sometimes indicate a more serious issue such as an ectopic pregnancy. Counseling and support may also be beneficial for those experiencing the emotional impact of a miscarriage.
