Miscarriage or abortion is a condition where there is death or removal of the fetus at gestational age less than 20 weeks. Miscarriage itself can be caused due to various conditions such as pregnancy infections, trauma in pregnancy. Toxoplasmosis can cause recurrent miscarriages.
To determine with certainty or diagnose Toxoplasma, further tests are needed, such as examining antibody levels against Toxoplasma. If there is indeed Toxoplasma infection and Toxoplasma causes symptoms, then therapy is usually done using anti-Toxoplasma drugs.
Usually Toxoplasma can still infect sufferers for a long time if untreated, besides that, Toxoplasma sufferers are often asymptomatic so sometimes they don't realize they have Toxoplasma.
so it is possible that at this time you are still experiencing Toxoplasma infection. To determine whether you need treatment or not, of course, you must first do a direct examination by an obstetrician.
In order to avoid recurrent miscarriage, you must look for the exact cause of the miscarriage that you are experiencing. if it is due to Toxoplasma, then usually the doctor will treat the Toxoplasma first. Or maybe you can use the IVF technique.
