Preventing Miscarriage

I’m going to start this page with the important point that there are very few miscarriages that are preventable. Well over half of all miscarriages are caused by random genetic problems in the baby that could not be avoided.

As you go into your next pregnancy, you may wonder what the doctor will do differently. What are they going to do to keep it from happening again?

The key is finding out what caused the loss, and if that cause was random or recurring.

I have a huge section on this: Diagnosing and Testing for Miscarriage

An important section to read if you are sure you could have prevented your miscarriage is the page on myths. There you will find the most common things women blame for their miscarriage, and why they are not a factor.

The few types of preventable miscarriages involve the following causes:

  • Hormone deficiencies
  • Physical problem with the uterus or cervix
  • Immunological problems

Read about them on the Causes of Miscarriage page.
