Is The Risk Of Miscarriage Can Be Decreased In Children?
Hi, I’m 22 years old. I want to ask, my mother used to get pregnant as much as 5 times and of the 5 pregnancies suffered a miscarriage 3 times, could it go down to me huh?
Hello Maya, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Miscarriage is actually a case that is not uncommon in pregnancy. It is estimated that about 10-25% of pregnancies will end in miscarriage, sometimes even before the woman realizes that she is pregnant. A woman's risk of miscarriage will indeed increase slightly if she has had a miscarriage before, but regarding whether the risk of miscarriage can decrease in her child, the chances are very, very small.
Most miscarriages are caused by chromosomal abnormalities that occur spontaneously on the results of conception (a fetus that forms at conception). The presence of this chromosomal abnormality does not always indicate that there is a chromosomal abnormality or certain genetic disorders in the mother or father, only sometimes during egg or sperm cell division, errors or errors can occur so that only the egg or sperm cell carries the abnormality. If the abnormal egg or sperm cell meets and becomes a fetus, there is a possibility that the fetus will die by itself (spontaneous abortion occurs) or experience abnormalities at birth.
Miscarriage can also be caused by other factors besides genetic factors, for example
infection of certain medical conditions in the mother (for example the mother has diabetes, thyroid disease, high blood pressure) certain hormonal disorders certain autoimmune diseases (such as antiphospholipid syndrome) abnormalities in the uterus or cervix of her mother at risky lifestyle (smoking, using illegal drugs, drinking alcohol, etc.) The risk of miscarriage can be reduced to you only if your mother has a certain genetic disorder, and this possibility is very small. You should make sure to your mother whether your mother and father have ever done a genetic examination because of the history of recurrent miscarriages. It's best if you don't have to worry too much right now. Make sure you do your best to maintain your pregnancy later, for example by maintaining a healthy lifestyle, avoiding smoking, alcohol, not just using drugs while pregnant, taking pregnancy vitamins regularly, taking pregnancy control to the obstetrician regularly.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
