A miscarriage refers to the natural, often sudden, loss of pregnancy that typically happens within the first 20 weeks of pregnancy. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, between 10 and 25 percent of all clinically recognized pregnancies end in a miscarriage. There are a variety of reasons for a woman to miscarry, however, the most common reason is chromosomal abnormalities that affect the fetus. Other causes of miscarriages include:
If you are pregnant and experience symptoms such as severe back pain, weight loss, unusual vaginal discharge, spotting or a sudden decrease in pregnancy signs, contact a medical professional right away.
An ultrasound can determine whether your pregnancy is located in the uterus. Pregnancies that develop outside the uterus, typically in the fallopian tubes, are called ectopic pregnancies and can become life-threatening if not addressed by a medical professional. Your fallopian tubes are not large enough to house a growing embryo, thus causing harm to your reproductive organs. Some common symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy include:
Severe pelvic-area pain
Abnormal vaginal bleeding
If you develop any of these symptoms, please seek medical assistance right away.
