What is a spontaneous abortion?

Loss of fetus

Spontaneous_abortion
If there is no obvious cause of miscarriage, or aborting a fetus, then it is 'spontaneous'. much more common than most think, 20% of all pregnancies. This is important to know, because women often think it is their fault, or feel guilty, or think they won't get pregnant again, or becoMe anxious or depressed. It's not your fault, it is common (most first trimester), doesn't decrease chance next.

What is the treatment for spontaneous abortion?

Observation or D&c

Spontaneous_abortion
An early pregnancy loss (6-8 wks)can be observed closely and often a complete miscarriage will ensue in the 2-4 wks. Antibiotics are usually not needed for a natural course. In some cases, a simple dilation and curettage (D&C) of the uterus can remove the pregnancy. A brief course of antibiotics is needed.

Are there symptoms to recognize signs of spontaneous abortion?

Miscarriage

Bleeding and cramping are symptoms of a miscarriage. A miscarriage is nature's way of ending something that wasn't going to be normal.

If I take herbs is it possible ti have a spontaneous abortion?

Not likely, but

Vitamin
Though it is not likely, it depends on what herbs, dosage of herb. When giving history to any physician, ALWAYS include over-The-counter meds, herbs, supplements, vitamins. Whether prescribed by a physician or not, they are all chemical, all drugs, all have some affect (positive or negative or both) on the body. Don't take anything 'extra' outside of what your doc OK's.

Dr. Miguel A. Cano answered:

Bleding and cramping only-- could this be spontaneous abortion?

Maybe

Open-uri20121009-10475-15k6qd
I tell patients that cramping & spotting early in pregnancy is common but not normal. You should be evaluated to see if it's a viable pregnancy (ultrasound). If you have a normal fetus with good cardiac activity, by definition you have a "threatened abortion." then I recommend rest and patience. If it's not a normal pregnancy, then discuss your options with your OB. Good luck.

Does a doctor always do a d & c on u after a spontaneous abortion?

Depends

Abortion
Most of the time residual contents from a spontaneous abortion are removed by the Ob, a D&C. But each case is different. Your Ob will decide. Trust him/her.

I was two days late and had a very heavy period. Was this a spontaneous abortion?

2 days late

Abortion
A delay of menses by 2 days followed by a heavy period it is not possible to know if you conceived. So you cannot know if this was a spontaneous abortion.
