The goal of treatment following or during a miscarriage, according to Medicalnewstoday, is to prevent hemorrhaging (bleeding) and infection. The fetal tissue is normally expelled by the body on its own, especially early in the pregnancy. If it doesn’t, a doctor may perform a dilation and curettage procedure (D and C).
A doctor opens the cervix and puts a thin device into the uterus to remove tissue during a D and C. Drugs to control bleeding may be administered after the surgery.
Miscarriage can be caused by a variety of factors.
Problems with the placenta: If the placenta develops improperly, blood flow from the mother to the infant is disrupted.
Chromosome issues: A fetus may receive the incorrect number of chromosomes, resulting in improper development. The majority of miscarriages in the first trimester are caused by chromosomal abnormalities in the baby.Womb structure abnormalities: A developing fetus is at danger if the womb is abnormally formed or if fibroids (non-cancerous growths) develop in the womb.
Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal imbalance caused by ovaries that are excessively large.
Cervix weakness: The cervix is the womb’s neck. When the cervix muscles are weak, they can open too early during pregnancy, leading to a miscarriage.
Miscarriage can be caused by lifestyle factors such as smoking, drinking alcohol, or taking illegal drugs.

High blood pressure, celiac disease, diabetes, kidney illness, lupus, thyroid gland disorders, HIV, malaria, rubella, chlamydia, syphilis, and gonorrhea are among the underlying health factors linked to miscarriage in pregnant women.
Being overweight or underweight are two different things.
Obesity has been linked to an increased risk of miscarriage in the first trimester and future pregnancies.
Women who have a low BMI before becoming pregnant are also more likely to have a miscarriage. According to a study published in the International Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, underweight women are 72 percent more likely than healthy-weight women to miscarry during the first three months of pregnancy.
Keep track of your existing prescriptions and minimize your caffeine intake.
It is critical to consult a doctor to determine which medications are safe to use while pregnant. Retinoids, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), methotrexate, misoprostol, and antidepressants are among medicines that should be avoided (if at all feasible) while pregnant.
