How to protect yourself from Recurrent Miscarriages?

How to protect yourself from Recurrent Miscarriages?
Publish on 2019-09-17

Having recurrent miscarriages is heart breaking and it leads only to one question, why? Because many women would want to know why it happened to be able to prevent it from happening again. After the first or even the second miscarriages or if they are not consequent it should not be worrying. Usually, the cause would be a random genetic problem in the fetus, and there was nothing that could have been done about it. Moreover, the majority of women who have one or two miscarriages go on to have a healthy and normal next pregnancy.

 

Nevertheless, two, three or more miscarriages in a row, raises flags and increases the worry or rather despair. It is time to see a doctor to check for potential treatments for the causes of multiple miscarriages. To decide on the treatments that would boost the probabilities of a successful pregnancy, some tests need to be run so a clearer diagnosis can be formed.

 

What Tests Would Your Gynecologist in Dubai Ask For?

 

  • Problems with the Uterus Tests

Hysterosalpingogram

If you visit your gynecologist at one of the gynecologist centres in Dubai, they might ask you to opt for

A Hysterosalpingogram (HSG). It is a noninvasive, test that relies on injecting a dye into the uterus and an X-ray is taken. It looks for any abnormality in the shape of the uterus that might be the reason causing problems in pregnancy.

 

Hysteroscopy

A Specialist Obstetrician and Gynecologist would insert a thin telescope into the uterus to get the most accurate picture. He may be able to repair minor problems during the test if there would be a chance for it.

 

  • Blood Tests

Lupus Anticoagulant Antibodies

Lupus anticoagulant antibodies are considered as one of the markers for a syndrome called Antiphospholipid syndrome. That syndrome can increase women's chances of recurrent miscarriages. Some researchers believe it is due to the tiny blood clots formed because of Antiphospholipid Syndrome that block the blood supply to the placenta.

 

Anticardiolipin Antibodies

They are another marker for Antiphospholipid syndrome.

PT & APTT

PT is Prothrombin Time, and it is a test to measure how fast the blood clots. APTT stands for Activated Partial Thromboplastic Time, and it is another blood clotting measurement test. Abnormal results on either might be associated with hereditary thrombophilias.

 

MTHFR Gene Mutation and Thyroid Panel

Mutations in the MTHFR gene weaken the body's capability to absorb folic acid.

Protein C, Factor V Leiden, Protein S deficiency, Prothrombin gene mutation and Antithrombin III deficiency are the hereditary thrombophilias. They are linked to miscarriages after 10 weeks of pregnancy. However, it is fair to say that they are not very often. Similar to hypothyroidism, which is thought to increase the risk of second-trimester miscarriage

 

  • Other Tests

That includes (progesterone Test, Karyotyping of the Parents, and Fetal Tissue Karyotyping)

 

Recurrent miscarriages can put a huge load on women of wanting to put a name to the problem even if the problem is going to be a problem in them. While others are terrified that tests would not give them any answers.

 

Finding out the issue and treating it, or not finding anything at all are both good because this means you would be reassured that you could try again and succeed. You will look back at those moments as bad memories and you will be able to understand and appreciate more the blessing when it happens.
