Homoeopathy and Miscarriage

Dr. Kusum Yadav

The tremendous loss involved in a miscarrage can often be overlooked and it is necessary to take proper care of the woman during this time for she is emotionally as well as physically affected by the loss. For abortions that are threatened but can be saved respond very well to homoeopathic medicines. Homoeopathic medicines can also remove the tendency to habitual abortions. Homoeopathic medicines are also helpful in relieving the ill effects of abortion including MTP.

Loss of a foetus during pregnancy can be very traumatic for a woman. Commonly known as abortion or miscarriage, it can occur due to various causes and affects the woman physically as well as emotionally.

The signs of miscarriage can range from blood loss to a sudden amount of clear discharge accompanied by abdominal cramps.

Abortion can be caused due to factors that could be maternal, paternal, ovular or foetal. Abortion can be caused due to many other causes that are unknown and obscure.

Defects in the ovum or foetus such as chromosomal abnormalities, congenital malformation are the factors that can cause abortion during early stages. Interference with the circulation in the umbilical cord by knots twists or entanglements may cause death of the foetus and its expulsion. Faulty formation of placenta may also lead to interference in placental circulation and subsequently death of the foetus.

The factors that can cause abortion during the later months of pregnancy are mostly due to maternal illness. Viral, parasitic or protozoal infections produce congenital malformation and abortion. Disorders such as acute or chronic respiratory diseases, heart failure or anaemia may precipitate abortion. Other chronic ailments such as hypertension, nephritis may also lead to an inability to retain pregnancy. An increased association of abortion is found in conditions of hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism and diabetes.

Trauma of any kind-be it emotional or physical can precipitate abortion in a woman. Direct trauma on the abdominal wall by blow or fall may lead to miscarriage.

Emotional upset or change in environment may lead to abortion by affecting the uterine cavity.

Congenital malformation of uterus or uterine displacements can also be responsible for abortions. Uterine tumours that cause distortion of the uterus may lead to abortion.

Other factors that may precipitate abortion include blood group incompatibilities, premature rupture of membranes, toxic effect of certain drugs and deficiency of vitamin E and folic acid.

Maternal factors are not the only cause for abortion, certain paternal factors may also be a cause for abortions. The reason is defective sperm in the males.

Besides the above known causes of abortion, many times it is difficult to pinpoint the reason for the miscarriage- being too complex or obscure.

In early weeks of pregnancy, death of the ovum occurs first that is followed by the expulsion. In the later weeks, when the abortion occurs due to some maternal factors, expulsion of the foetus occurs that may show signs of life but is too small to survive.

Miscarriage can be saved in case of threatened abortion where the process has already started but has not progressed to a state from which recovery is not possible. But in other cases abortion is inevitable as the changes have progressed to a state from where continuation of pregnancy is impossible.
