Flying After Miscarriage
Does flying affect a foetus 4-8weeks if one has a history of miscarriages and diagnosed with a weak cervix?
A miscarriage is the spontaneous loss of a fetus before the 20th week of pregnancy. (Pregnancy losses after the 20th week are called preterm deliveries.) A miscarriage may also be called a "spontaneous abortion." This refers to naturally occurring events, not medical ...Read more
Abroad and think I am having a miscarriage 11wks - quite sick but only moderate bleeding. I have a 16 hour flight (today) to get home. OK to fly home?
Be safe: If you think you're having a miscarriage I think you should get it checked out by a doctor now. Bleeding can be heavy and when up in the air you're really isolated. Plus the cabin is pressurized at 10000 feet so there's less oxygen there. I don't know how important getting home is, but I would say it's time to look at the big picture here. Hope u get some help. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I had threatened miscarriage at ~12 wks in my first pregnancy. I am now 4 wks pregnant & will fly long distance in 2 wks (16hrs each way) Is it risky?
No, but be careful: The flight itself is not a risk to your pregnancy. However, the typical process in long flights involves you sitting for prolonged periods of time and possibly getting dehydrated. Make sure you drink plenty of water and try to get up to walk every couple hours to promote good circulation through your legs and prevent blood clot formation. ...Read more
At 20 weeks pregnant, w/hx of 2 miscarriages. Is it safe to fly in a non-pressurized airplane for 45min, max elevation 7, 000ft & climb rate of 500'/min?
Yes: The real risk in flying is if something happens, you have to find a place to land and find medical help. It is a possible delay. There are many women who live at 7000 ft and are pregnant with no problems. Think vail, or in the rockies. Would discourage inside loops though :). ...Read more

Many causes possible: Many possible causes of miscarriage exist. You have more chance of another success than multiple miscarriages with no child. With 2 or more miscarriages we look for low egg supply, uterine problems like polyps or fibroids, abnormal antibodies, blood clotting disorders, hormonal problems. Genetic tests if needed. See a reproductive endocrinology/ infertility (rei) specialist for tests & treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Had 1st c-sec 7 wks ago. I read online many women have miscarriages after their c-sections why does that happen now I'm worried for future miscariges
Miscarriages happen: Many pregnancies miscarry (it's a normal part of life). Many women miscarry before their C-sections, and many women miscarry after their C-sections... which means miscarrying is not related to C-sections. If a woman has repeated miscarriages, her Ob-Gyn doctor can help find out if she has a disorder that makes her more likely than normal, to have miscarriages. ...Read more
Miscarriage: Miscarriages occur in 15-20% of all pregnancies and are usually genetic in cause. The genetic miscarriage is not due to anything that you may have done and is usually determined at the time of conception. This is nature's way of making sure an abnormal fetus does not result. These abnormalities happen by chance and may not occur in subsequent pregnancy, however, this risk increases with age. ...Read more
