What can cause recurrent miscarriage (and how does Dr. Munch treat the problem)?
Recurrent miscarriage is defined by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) as two or more pregnancies lost. Women begin to wonder, “Why can’t I stay pregnant?” at this point.
It turns out that a woman can experience multiple miscarriages for a variety of reasons. Our San Antonio infertility specialist will therefore request some tests to identify which of the following issues is the reason for the miscarriages.
Once Dr. Munch is aware of the reasons why you’re having trouble conceiving, and she can create a unique treatment strategy. For instance, she can perform minimally invasive surgery to treat a variety of uterine abnormalities. It becomes significantly simpler for an embryo to implant and develop in the uterus after fibroids, polyps, or a uterine septum have been removed.
Regarding hormonal imbalances, taking specific medications can help the body maintain a pregnancy by balancing the hormones. This also applies to immune system disorders and clotting problems.
Finally, preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) can help Dr. If chromosomal or genetic defects in the embryos are the cause of the recurrent miscarriages, Munch transfer a healthy embryo.
Low progesterone, high insulin, very low thyroid, very high prolactin, and very low progesterone are examples of hormonal disorders.
Recurrent miscarriage syndrome is a condition that we treat in all of our offices and is one of the more widespread reproductive disorders. Medical science has known about recurrent miscarriage syndrome for centuries. Effective diagnosis methods and therapies, however, have only recently become available to treat this relatively common syndrome.
Abnormalities of the uterus, such as uterine fibroids, large uterine polyps, or a uterine septum, are easily diagnosed and treatable with relatively straightforward outpatient surgical procedures.
Some women struggle mightily to conceive, only to miscarry during many or even most of their labors. Other women have no trouble getting pregnant, but they might have trouble raising the child to term. Sadly, they lose several pregnancies due to recurrent miscarriages.
There are tests for each type of recurrent miscarriage, and almost every diagnosis has a particular treatment. FTC performs structured, effective diagnostic evaluations and creates treatments that are personalized for each patient and the diagnosis. By doing this, the likelihood of sustaining the pregnancy until the due date and having a healthy baby is increased.
Physical Problems with Fallopian Tubes, Ovaries, Uterus, or Cervix
The ease of conception may be impacted by any physical abnormalities with the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, or their position. Additionally, past issues may have an impact on the design and operation of reproductive anatomy. These may include having scars from prior surgeries, such as C-sections, or losing a fallopian tube to an ectopic pregnancy.
A healthy pregnancy relies on fertilization and implantation.
The majority of these physical issues have an impact on whether or not an egg can be released and fertilized properly or how successfully an embryo can implant and develop into the uterine lining.
The CDC states that infections such as pelvic inflammatory disease and others can cause blocked fallopian tubes. These can include STIs like chlamydia and gonorrhea that are sexually transmitted. (12) Endometriosis can be another cause of blocked fallopian tubes.
The use of assisted reproductive technology (ART) is frequently required to address issues with the physical reproductive system. IVF is frequently used as a treatment for structural or physical issues that prevent conception because they can present obstacles that cannot be removed through dietary changes, lifestyle changes, or other forms of therapy.
