Have you ever thought about what causes miscarriage? This is a depressing condition that many women face, and it is what I want to discuss in this article. Miscarriages can be extremely traumatic experiences that no one should ever have to go through. They have a high mental cost and may have long-term emotional consequences such as guilt, fear, anger, and even depression. The most heartbreaking aspect of this tragic event, however, is a mother's struggle to understand why her child died. Miscarriage can occur for a variety of reasons. Some of the most common are as follows:
1. Chromosome inconsistencies
According to research, most miscarriages are caused by an incompatible chromosome or chromosomal abnormalities in the fetus. Chromosomes are thread-like structures found in our cells that contain all of our genetic information, or genes. A miscarriage can occur when either the sperm or the egg has a chromosomal problem during the embryo's formation. This is beyond human control to some extent, but you can seek medical advice on it.
2. Polycystic ovarian syndrome
This particular health condition affects many women and can result in miscarriage. Women with this hormonal disorder have infrequent periods because their ovaries develop fluid-filled cysts and fail to ovulate on a regular basis. There is also an increase in the male sex hormone testosterone. PCOS also interferes with the proper maturation of the uterine lining, which can result in a miscarriage. Fortunately, treatments for this condition are now available. You can also seek medical advice if necessary.
3. Physical drawbacks
This is not a common cause of miscarriage, but it is a significant cause because certain physical obstacles that a mother faces, such as uterine abnormalities like cervical incompetency, polyps, or a septum, can trigger it. When a miscarriage occurs as a result of a physical complication, it usually occurs during the second or third trimester. During pregnancy, you must exercise extreme caution because even minor injuries can have a negative impact on your baby.
4. Lifestyle options
Some women cause their miscarriages during pregnancy. If the mother engages in self-destructive behaviors such as drinking alcohol during her pregnancy, abusing drugs, or even smoking, it may result in the loss of the child earlier or later in the pregnancy. Avoid any ha it that may be harmful to your health while pregnant.
5. Immune system dysfunction
Certain autoimmune disorders have been linked to miscarriages, according to research. This is especially true in the case of multiple miscarriages. The precise sequence of events that contribute to the loss as a result of the involvement of dysfunctional immunological factors is rather complicated. Always try to strengthen your immune system by eating the right foods, especially during pregnancy.
Infections can also result in a miscarriage. Both viral and bacterial infections have been proposed as causes of recurrent pregnancy loss. Women who become infected with Listeria (a bacteria-induced food poisoning) after consuming unpasteurized dairy may miscarry due to subsequent infection of the uterine lining, which renders the womb inhospitable to the embryo. To avoid infections, keep yourself healthy and clean during your pregnancy.
