Miscarriages are, unfortunately, quite common. Many women lose the fetus during its early gestation, especially in the first 12 weeks. In the United States, around one out of every 100 pregnancies results in miscarriage before the 21st week of pregnancy.
It’s thought that some miscarriages happen when the body detects a problem with the fetus. However, what these problems might be isn’t always clear. Trauma, illness, infections, and genetic disorders can also lead to miscarriage.
Women who suffer a miscarriage often go on to have healthy pregnancies with no problems. For some women, though, further pregnancies also result in miscarriage. Losing a fetus is a deeply traumatic, distressing experience, and going through miscarriages repeatedly can be too much to bear.
If you’re worried about becoming pregnant because of previous miscarriages, the Healthkey Group Fertility team offers comprehensive traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) to prevent further loss.
TCM techniques improve blood flow to the female reproductive organs, balance the hormones that play a role in reproduction, and prepare the uterus for conception, reducing your risk of miscarriage.
Increasing parent health before conception ensures that sperm and eggs are less likely to be abnormal. Chinese medicine specialists can also detect potential risk factors in one or both parents and correct them, ensuring they don’t affect future pregnancies.
For example, underlying conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and endometriosis could interfere with the ovaries’ hormone production during pregnancy, potentially endangering fetal development.
Because each patient is unique, the Healthkey Group Fertility team designs customized miscarriage prevention plans. The primary treatments in your plan are likely to be:
Acupuncture uses hair-thin needles to activate life force energy (Qi or Chi) around your body. It has proven benefits in increasing fertility, boosting your chances of successful in vitro fertilization (IVF) and intrauterine insemination (IUI), and reducing miscarriage risk.
Massage is known for its therapeutic effects. Meridian massage is a TCM specialty that improves blood flow and promotes well-being.
Herbs can have many health-giving properties, aiding in sperm, egg, and uterine health, conception, and overall vitality. Healthkey Group Fertility has a specially designed range of herbal medicines, including fertility support for men and women.
