What Causes A Miscarriage?

There are so many different things that can contribute to a woman having a miscarriage. The vast majority of the time, there is absolutely nothing a woman could have done differently to prevent or avoid a miscarriage. The fetus not developing normally is the number one cause of miscarriage, but there are so many different reasons why this can occur.

Usually, however, miscarriages are caused by random problems with how the cells divide or how the embryo split. Sometimes a woman’s medical conditions or lifestyle choices can contribute to miscarriage, but for the most part, it is just something that happens, and it happens a lot. In fact, anywhere from between 10 and 20 percent of all pregnancies end in miscarriage.

Getting Pregnant After Miscarriage

Many women wonder if they will be likely to have another miscarriage once they have already had one. It is important to remember, however, that miscarriage is usually a one-time occurrence. More than 90% of women get pregnant successfully after having a miscarriage.

Doctors and experts alike agree that after a miscarriage, a woman’s chances of getting pregnant again are the same as they were before the miscarriage. Just because you have a miscarriage, does not mean that you will have a harder time getting pregnant again. Of course, some women have medical conditions or problems that make it harder for them to get pregnant, but that is not the majority of cases.

Improving Your Chances

While there is no way to predict or tell whether or not you will have a miscarriage, there are some things that you can do to improve your chances of a successful pregnancy after miscarriage. For example, taking a daily prenatal vitamin while you are trying to conceive can be helpful.

You might need a folic acid supplement as well. Taking folic acid will help to prevent neural tube defects from happening with your developing baby before you even know you are pregnant. Other things that you can do to improve your chances of having a successful pregnancy after miscarriage include eating a healthy diet, losing weight if you are overweight, getting enough exercise, making sure to get enough sleep, quitting things like alcohol use, tobacco use and illegal drug use, and reducing stress in your life.
