Miscarriage
 
Standard Definition

Miscarriage, otherwise known as a spontaneous abortion, is the loss of a foetus before 20 weeks of pregnancy. It is believed that one in 5 to one in 3 of all pregnancies result in a miscarriage, the majority of them due to chromosomal abnormalities. Many of these occur as a late menstrual period and therefore are not detected. It is now believed that up to 50% of all miscarriages can be traced to male factors.

A small percentage of women experience 'habitual' or recurrent miscarriages (defined as three or more). These cases are much more complex and require thorough assessment. All women who are miscarrying, or have recently miscarried should seek the advice of their healthcare practitioner

 
 
Underlying Disruption in Function

A healthy body is a fertile body, and this expression applies equally to both men and women. There appears to be a strong connection between diet, lifestyle, and risk of miscarriage. Before becoming pregnant, therefore, it is recommended that both prospective parents undergo Preconception Health Care for a period of at least 4 months. (see Infertility - male and female)

Recurrent miscarriage may be due to deeper underlying problems such as male toxic exposure and poor sperm health, hormonal inadequacies, immune reaction, autoimmune disorders such as Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, nutritional deficiencies, heavy metal toxicity, excessive homocysteine or blood clotting disorders.
