Did you know that 1 in 5 women will experience a miscarriage at least once in their lifetime? This is why miscarriage is often dismissed as being ‘completely normal’ and nothing to be concerned about.
But for many couples, miscarriage becomes a recurring theme with zero investigations taking place routinely before a woman has had at least three miscarriages. And even then, what is done is often too simplistic and plainly inadequate.
To make matters worse, many couples can also be challenged with infertility–before, during or after miscarriages. So not only do they have trouble getting pregnant, but when they finally do (after months or years of trying to conceive) they are then devasted to lose the pregnacy to a miscarriage.
At the Rosa Institute we take a different approach. We don’t believe miscarriages are a ‘normal’ part of the baby making equation and it certainly shouldn’t take minimum of three pregnancies lost before something is done about it. We also believe that assisted reproductive treatment implantation failure should be as thoroughly investigated as we do miscarriages because they are often influenced by the same factors.
If you ever wonder about the following questions, then this next live segment of Ask Gabriela Rosa is for you (and your partner):
- What’s the difference between implantation failure and miscarriage?
- What constitutes recurrent miscarriage?
- Can male factors cause miscarriage?
- I have recently experienced a miscarriage – what should I do next?
- Is it possible to overcome implantation failure and/or recurrent miscarriage?
- I am pregnant now – how can I reduce the chance of miscarriage?
- Are there particular tests I should get done?
- Is there reduced miscarriage risk if I undergo IVF/ICSI?
- What is the reason I am experiencing miscarriage(s)?
- What else can I do to take home a healthy baby?
There are many reasons why a couple may experience miscarriage and most of the contributing factors are not investigated thoroughly. Join me in this segment as I discuss the 9 category reasons for implantation failure and recurrent miscarriage and what you can do about them.
