Getting over abortion is not easy. In addition to physical problems, women can suffer emotional changes. Although the first ones are overcome in a few weeks, it is normal to have feelings of loss, and sometimes the process of “mourning” you go through becomes a bit complicated, especially if the abortion occurs after assisted reproduction treatment.
WHAT CAUSES CAN CAUSE A MISCARRIAGE?
Spontaneous abortions are quite common and often occur in isolation, most of them occurring in the first trimester of pregnancy.
Abortions can be spontaneous, when they are not caused and occur naturally. Induced, when they are caused by personal decision or therapeutics, when the pregnancy is interrupted for medical reasons.
We cannot always know the exact cause of a miscarriage, but among the most common causes are the following: genetic abnormalities of the embryo, such as an abnormal number of chromosomes; Uterine alterations, infections, external toxic aggressions (bad habits), trauma, severe diabetes or malnutrition, hematological or immune problems of the mother.
The causes can be multiple and up to about 50% of the occasions are not determined. It is what we call abortion of unknown cause.
How Can I Reduce The Risk Of Miscarriage During The First Trimester?
● Although most miscarriages cannot be prevented, it is advisable to follow certain measures to minimize the risk as much as possible and ensure that we have the necessary healthy habits.
● The first thing to do is a prior medical check-up to plan the pregnancy, and especially if you have had a miscarriage before. It is recommended to carry out a complete analysis, paying special attention to aspects that conflict with fertility, such as low vitamin D or thyroid malfunction. It is important to have good levels of iron and folic acid, as well as to give up stimulants. As for medications, remember that you can only take those prescribed by your doctor.
● Rest and rest are also essential during the first weeks of pregnancy, as your body begins to experience many hormonal changes that can cause fatigue and require a period of adaptation.
● It is also important to maintain a healthy and balanced diet, controlling overweight.
Regarding emotional aspects, try to maintain an attitude of inner harmony, keep stress and conflicts at bay and try to live this stage of your life with serenity and optimism.
