I : I am so sorry that you have gone through four miscarriages. No, straining will not cause a miscarriage, but if you are having painful periods you could use a glycerin suppository to help. Or you can also go to a pharmacy and ask for a safe stool softener, telling the pharmacist that you are pregnant. Good luck to you with this pregnancy. ...Read more

Is there something that could cause multiple miscarriages after already having one child?

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 more

What are some things that can cause miscarriages besides stress?

Could have being underweight caused my miscarriages?

Only if unhealthy: Being underweight in its self is not a barrier to pregnancy if otherwise healthy. Eat healthy and exercise regularly. Watch all medications including Advil and Aspirin while pregnant or trying to get pregnant. If significantly underweight talk to your physician about good nutrition. No smoking or alcohol. Good luck and good health. ...Read more
