How To Prevent It So That Abortion Does Not Occur Repeatedly?
Morning, I am a 25 year old woman … a week ago I miscarried my first child, after I was late for my menstrual period for more than 2 weeks, I didn’t know that I was pregnant because when I checked into a hospital in South Jakarta the doctor said that I was not pregnant (the doctor only did uterine ultrasound not transvaginal ultrasound) at that time I was told to wait 2 weeks for a double check until finally it wasn’t until 2 weeks I waited for my prospective fetus to come out and I immediately went to another hospital, it said that I had a miscarriage, a future fetus I went out on my own because my uterine wall was not strong. My question is, what foods should I consume to make my uterine lining stronger during pregnancy? and if my pregnancy is detected early will the doctor give uterine strengthening drugs? and does the weak uterus have to be bed rest? because I work as an internal auditor who sometimes likes to lift heavy objects. I don’t want to have another pregnancy … thank you
Hi Upi, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Miscarriage or what is called a spontaneous abortion is the failure of pregnancy or fetal death before 20 weeks of gestation. Miscarriage can occur spontaneously in about 10-20% of women who are known to be pregnant, but the number is likely higher than that because spontaneous abortion can also occur before a woman even knows she is pregnant.
The causes of spontaneous abortion can vary. In most cases, spontaneous abortion occurs due to genetic or chromosomal abnormalities in the fetus. Genetic or chromosomal abnormalities in the fetus are not factors that can be controlled or prevented. Only a minority of cases of spontaneous abortion occur due to other factors from the mother, such as uncontrolled diabetes, infection in pregnancy, hormonal disorders including thyroid disorders, and problems with the uterus and cervix.
Uterine strengthening drugs are not routinely given to pregnant women. Uterine strengthening drugs will usually be given to women who are known to be pregnant who experience early symptoms of abortion but fetal death has not occurred.
In the case of your previous pregnancy, chances are that the miscarriage is not a case of miscarriage that can be prevented (because you miscarried even before the pregnancy was known for sure) and you did not experience the early symptoms of miscarriage (the fetus came out right away). There are no certain foods that are recommended or forbidden to eat in your case, but to increase the chances of a healthy pregnancy in the future, you can do the following:
Consume folic acid regularly from the time you plan your pregnancy at this time. Always consume foods that are nutritious and balanced in sufficient quantities. Increase consumption of fruits and vegetables that contain high antioxidants. Keep your body weight ideal (don't be too fat and not too thin) Do sports routinely 30-40 minutes every day
Miscarriage or spontaneous abortion will not occur because of the following:
Doing sports including sports such as jogging or cycling. Having sexual intercourse when you are young. Doing routine work (including your job as an internal auditor). Jobs that are considered risky are jobs that are exposed to a lot of certain chemicals or radiation.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
