Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss
Pregnancy loss can be a very difficult experience, both physically and emotionally. Our skilled health care providers are here to help you with pregnancy loss services, including:
When a pregnancy ends by itself before 20 weeks, it is called "miscarriage." It is also called "early pregnancy loss" or "spontaneous abortion." Early pregnancy loss is very common; as many as 1 in 4 pregnancies end this way. Usually, there is no known cause for a miscarriage. Many miscarriages are caused by chromosomal problems that prevent the fetus from developing normally, unrelated to either parent's genes. Problems related to other medical conditions or lifestyle factors can also cause miscarriage.
While some or all of these symptoms may occur if you are having a miscarriage, you may also experience these symptoms even if you are not having a miscarriage. It is important for you to see a doctor to find out.
While some women do not require any treatment during or after a miscarriage, it is important that you see a health care provider to determine whether any medical interventions are needed.
Getting pregnant after a miscarriage
Most women who have a miscarriage go on to have normal, healthy pregnancies. If you choose, you can try to get pregnant as soon as you'd like following an early pregnancy loss.
