Easy & scientific solutions for miscarriage & infertility
Natural solutions to fertility and miscarriage problems
Unfortunately, you may already have suffered one or more miscarriages before a thorough evaluation is performed. Work with your doctor to try to find the cause of your recurrent miscarriages. Talk with your doctor about your medical history, your experiences during past pregnancies, and any risk factors or medical conditions that you may have. Your doctor will want to perform a complete physical examination and will also likely order many diagnostic tests in an attempt to determine a cause for the miscarriages.
Following is a checklist of possible tests and studies that you may be asked to undergo:
Blood tests: Your blood will be checked for progesterone level, certain viruses, diabetes, thyroid function, blood-clotting disorders, other immune disorders.
Pelvic infection testing: The vagina and uterus may be swabbed and the swabs sent to the laboratory to test for infection.
Genetic evaluation: The miscarriage tissue, you, and your partner may be tested for the presence of abnormal chromosomes.
Ultrasound: Ultrasonic sound waves are used to create an image of your pelvis on a monitor and your pelvic anatomy can be evaluated for possible problems.
Sonohysterogram: In this specific type of ultrasound of the uterus, sterile water is first injected into the uterus for better viewing and evaluation of potential abnormalities.
Hysterosalpingography: This is a special type of x-ray (called fluoroscopy) of the uterus and fallopian tubes performed after injection with dye. It helps detect some problems within the uterus and pelvic anatomy. However, HSG is best suited to determine the openness of the fallopian tubes.
Hysteroscopy: A narrow telescope-like device is inserted into the uterus to view the inside of the uterus and check for abnormalities.
Remember that even if no underlying cause is found, many women go on to have future successful pregnancies. If you and your doctor do find an underlying cause, treatment options are available so that you can hopefully enjoy future successful pregnancies.
