What is a missed abortion?

Form of miscarriage: A missed abortion is a miscarriage that hasn't quite happened yet-- no bleeding or cramping. The early developing fetus has died and has no heartbeat or has failed to develop. This is usually diagnosed on an early ultrasound. Management options include surgical or medically induced evacuation of the uterus or expectant management to see if your body will expel the pregnancy on it's own. ...Read more

I am suffering from repeated missed abortion for 2 times. I am trying to understand what is the root?

Many causes: The most common cause of first trimester abortions is chromosomal abnormalities. Mother nature has a very rigid system in place that makes sure that even the tiniest issues early on lead to termination of pregnancy. You will need an OB - gyn evaluate you for causes including advanced age, prior hx of stds, underlying medical conditions, etc. ...Read more

Hello, I had done tiffa scan on Oct 1 4 impressions result was missed abortion as I am not satisfied vit the report can I get it done next day Pl sig.

I don't know: I'm not sure what determines that in India. Tiffa scans are known as Ultrasounds in the states and are very safe in pregnancy or at any time since there is no radiation exposure. The question here would be insurance coverage or patient's willingness to pay and the doctor's willingness to order it. Another alternative would be quantitative HCG levels 2 or 3 days apart. With a missed abortion they fall ...Read more

My wife (rh -ve), had missed abortion & kurittine in dec'12. But not sure that anti d injection was given. V r trying for conception. What to do now?

Request records: Try and request your hospital records to see if Rhogam was given or not and notify your doctor of the results. Rh antibodies will not affect your ability to become pregnant but they could potentially affect the pregnancy itself. When you become pregnant, an antibody screen will be one of the first labs that is drawn to see if any antibodies have formed. ...Read more

I took 600mg of cytotec (misoprostol) for missed abortion. How long should it take for products of conception to pass?

6 hours: Outside the hospital, for a missed abortion not greater than 8 weeks of pregnancy 600 micrograms of cytotec (misoprostol) swallowed by mouth should accomplish products of conception to pass within 3 - 6 hrs. If that fails a repeat dose may be considered. ...Read more

How much pain will 600mg of cyototec for a missed abortion at 6 weeks now 7 weeks past cause? I'm scared. Prescription of Vicodin be enough for pain?

How much pain will 600mg of cyototec for a missed abortion at 6 weeks now 7 weeks past cause? I'm scared. Prescription of Vicodin be enough for pain?

Call the prescriber: Whoever prescribed the cyototec is responsible for being available to address your concerns. I'm not familiar with it so it is a "specialized" concern. That being said, I would predict other etiologies for your ongoing pain. With your history I would consider elements of Post Truman's Stress Disorder adding to your discomfort. ...Read more

I had a missed abortion at13 weeks got a d&c right after. Its been 8 weeks and haven't got my period, only clearish light pinkish brownish light flow.

Takes a while: After a stress like that to your body, it can take a few menstrual cycles to get into a proper routine. If you don't feel like your are having a normal menstrual cycle in the next month, go to your OB and discuss in detail. I suspect your menstrual flow will improve with each successive month. You can check on ovulation mid-cycle with an ovulation kit, if you are in TTC mode ...Read more

I have IVF missed abortion 8 weeks have bleed large clots gy say I has hematoma embryo was growing normaly and just die was embryo chromz. Abnormal?

Likely: Sorry about the bad news. Yes. Most likely this was a problem with the embryo and not with you. It is good that you got pregnant. This often bodes well for future ivf cycle success. Most embryo problems this early in pregnancy are chromosomal issues. Please speak with your doctor about your particular situation. Take care and best of luck. ...Read more

What is the maximum dose of misoprostol in case of a missed abortion from 12days in the 7th week (the sac out but still little tissues in uterus)?

Uncertain: Misoprostol is commonly used to facilitate the completion of spontaneous abortion. There are many protocols in use that vary by physician training. It doesn't seem beneficial to keep repeating the dose more than 2 to 3 times and the dosing usually ranges from 400- 800mcg given either per vagina or by mouth and never repeated more frequently than once per day. ...Read more

Can fenugreek & cinnamon drinking help in cleaning uterus after a week of a missed abortion (in the 7th week) beside misoprostol medicine?

Can fenugreek & cinnamon drinking help in cleaning uterus after a week of a missed abortion (in the 7th week) beside misoprostol medicine?

Not likely: Not sure what you mean by cleaning out the uterus. This is a common thing I hear women talking about. If you're concerned there is retained pregnancy tissue then a prostaglandin like Misoprostol or suction D&C are the best options. I do have some women who use fenugreek to increase milk production. Never seen it or cinnamon used for a missed abortion. ...Read more

33 yr healthy female.2 cesarean. Both healthy daughters. 2 missed abortions, first at week 9, no heartbeat. Second at week 12, fetus had heartbeat. Reason?

Many possibilities: Making a human being is very complicated. Sometimes something goes wrong. When your body recognizes the problem, you have a miscarriage. One of the most common problems is a genetic abnormality in the growing embryo. Other causes are recreational drug use, toxin exposure, trauma, maternal illness, infection... Since you have had 2 successful pregnancies, your chance of another is excellent! ...Read more

Doctor I sita an indian married women since 10 years I have 5 missed abortions I was diagnosed found bicornuate uterus can I give birth to a child?

Hard to say: The irregularity in the structure of your uterus may make pregnancy difficult. I saw a baby last week born to a woman with the same problem, so it does happen. Surgical removal of the septum may be possible if there is an experienced surgeon in your area and that might improve your chances. Talk with your doc. ...Read more
