I had a miscarriage my first pregnancy at 5 weeks, is it likely to have another miscarriage and what could I do to prevent it or be safe?

Low risk: Most miscarriages occur within the first trimester, and are due to genetic abnormalities in the fetus. After one miscarriage, there does not seem to be an increased risk for recurrence over the general population. Start a prenatal vitamin before conception, and simply take care. Most women with one early loss will do just fine with next pregnancies. ...Read more

Vitamin c can cause a miscarriage. Can it cause one if the egg has not been fertilized yet or is being fertilized or will it help prevent pregnancy?

Vitamin c can cause a miscarriage. Can it cause one if the egg has not been fertilized yet or is being fertilized or will it help prevent pregnancy?

No, no, no, and no: Vitamin c does not cause miscarriages. Miscarriages happen frequently all over the world (to a big portion of natural pregnancies) and people take vitamin c every day, but the two things are unrelated. A woman cannot miscarry until after she is actually carrying (no such thing as miscarrying before or during fertilization). Vitamin c does not prevent pregnancy. Don't worry about eating oranges! ...Read more

10 weeks pregnant. Progesterone level was 12 so I am taking 200 mg of progest. Daily. If pregnancy is non viable will the supplements prevent your body from naturally miscarrying. Hcg has been good.

10 weeks pregnant. Progesterone level was 12 so I am taking 200 mg of progest. Daily. If pregnancy is non viable will the supplements prevent your body from naturally miscarrying. Hcg has been good.

Very unlikely: Sufficient progesterone in its natural form is vital in preparing the uterus to allow the embryo to implant securely. However, after about 12 weeks of pregnancy, the placenta takes the job of maintaining the pregnancy and progesterone supplement is no longer needed, The fact that you have normal HCG is a sign that the pregnancy is proceeding normally. At next visit, a heartbeat can be detected ...Read more
