What to do in case of miscarriage?

The miscarriage is unfortunately a frequent occurrence. It is estimated that 15 to 20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage, with the risk of miscarriage increasing with age (especially beyond age 40).

Most often, a miscarriage occurs in the first few weeks of pregnancy: usually before the first 10 weeks of pregnancy (up to 15 weeks of amenorrhea).

A miscarriage is the natural interruption of a pregnancy . It is usually caused by an egg anomaly. It is also considered as a kind of "natural regulation". There is also talk of spontaneous abortion.

There is early miscarriage ( before 12 weeks of pregnancy or 14 weeks of amenorrhea) and late miscarriage (after 12 weeks of pregnancy). Most often, it is an early miscarriage (1st trimester miscarriage).

This natural abortion can be a real traumatism for the woman who lives it. Especially when the pregnancy is quite advanced. Generally, investigations are carried out in case of recurrence of miscarriage to try to identify the reason.
