Causes and Treatments (Infertility)
It is important to see a specialist early to look for possible causes and make a plan of management for care early in the next pregnancy.
Unfortunately, miscarriages are quite common, with one in six pregnancies ending before 20 weeks of pregnancy and are very emotionally distressing to mothers and couples.
Miscarriage can happen to mothers at any age but is more common in older mums especially from the age of 35. Most patients will then go on to have a healthy baby next time but three or more consecutive miscarriages can happen in about 2% of women trying to have a baby.
Dr Raymond is a specialist gynaecologist with expertise in managing recurrent miscarriages including early pregnancy care with hormonal and ultrasound monitoring.
Causes of Miscarriage
There are a number of treatable causes of miscarriage and it is important to see a specialist early (after 2 or 3 miscarriages) to look for possible causes of miscarriage and make a plan of management for care early in the next pregnancy.
There are many possible causes for recurrent miscarriage and these can include genetic or chromosome abnormalities in either Mum or Dad:
- Hormone problems such as thyroid dysfunction
- Auto immune problems
- Coeliac disease
- Blood clotting problems
- Uterine abnormalities
