Causes For Early Miscarriages
Every year in the U.S. hundreds of thousands of women have miscarriages. A miscarriage is when the pregnancy ends before 24 weeks of carrying the fetus. Usually there is no proven method of preventing miscarriages.
In fact, early miscarriages are quite common. It has been seen that nearly 10 to 20 percent of confirmed pregnancies end up as early miscarriages with the miscarriage occurring in the first 12 weeks of the pregnancy.
Causes for Early Miscarriages
Nearly half of all early miscarriages occur because of a problem in the way the DNA of the egg and sperm combined during fertilization. In this, it usually difficult to determine why the early miscarriage occurred and usually doctors would tell you that it is due to random chance.
Early miscarriages also occur due to imbalances in pregnancy hormones, serious infections and problems with woman’s immune system. The chances of early miscarriage increase with age as the quality of the egg deteriorates as the woman gets older. Even if the woman is a heavy drinker or smoker, it can lead to early miscarriage.
Certain studies have revealed that stress plays an important role in early miscarriage. Although, stress by itself does not cause early miscarriages.
Once early miscarriages start, there is little that can be done to stop them. However, having early miscarriages does not mean that a woman cannot get pregnant again. In fact, many women end up having successful pregnancies after having early miscarriages. By and large the causes of early miscarriage still remain a mystery. Scientists and doctors are doing their best to reveal it so that they can prevent early miscarriages.
