How can i cause a home miscarriage at 12 weeks ? Under no circumstances can this baby be born

How can i cause a home miscarriage at 12 weeks ? Under no circumstances can this baby be born

Not how it's done.: About 15% of pregnancies naturally miscarry, which is about 1 out of every 7 pregnancies. If a woman wants to "get rid" of her baby fetus for some reason, that's called either an elective or a therapeutic abortion. In the U.S., women are free to ask their doctors about the various options. One's doctor can help with the decision, as we don't just "get rid" of little babies without a good reason. ...Read more

Possibly: You are at risk. Avoid intercourse or any physical activity. Some would argue bed rest. I don't think bed rest would be very helpful since you are so early. Best wishes. Progesterone up to 12 weeks would have helped perhaps. ...Read more

At least 2 months: It has been my experience that women have fewer problems if they let their body heal and cycle at least once before trying to conceive again. Stay on your prenatal vitamin as the Folic Acid is important in helping prevent another miscarriage and by all means see your provider if you are having any difficulties. Good luck! ...Read more
