Can't.: Unfortunately there is not much we can do to prvent early miscarriages, those that occur before 12 weeks. They are most often caused by a random misalignment of the baby's chromosomes. Such misalignments are spontaneous, random events that are out of the control of outside factors.

Can oxytocin induce miscarriage in the 1st trimester?

Most likely...: Although I don't know anyone who has used IV or IM/SQ oxytocin during the 1st trimester who wanted to KEEP their pregnancy, the fact remains that oxytocin causes direct contractility of the uterine muscular wall and would almost certainly cause loss of an early pregnancy. It's main use is to induce uterine contractility to help induce labor (after cervical ripening) and reduce uterine bleeding. ...Read more

Can taking large amounts of vitamin C induce a miscarriage at 6 weeks?

Can taking large amounts of vitamin C induce a miscarriage at 6 weeks?

Possibly: Research is limited but many women report that high doses of vitamin C (500 mg an hour) for several days taken in early pregnancy induces miscarriage. Thus, if one wants to avoid miscarriage then avoid high doses of C in early pregnancy. If one wishes to induce miscarriage it is safe to try but probably works less than 50% of the time.
