Pregnancy occurs when the eggMerges with the sperm and goes to the uterus to attach to its wall. At this time, a woman may not even suspect about the changes taking place inside her body, but they are already starting, and the embryo begins to develop. But it happens that this process can suddenly be interrupted even at the earliest date (and this occurs in 20% of pregnancies). In this case, they talk about spontaneous abortion, or miscarriage.
When a miscarriage occurs at the very beginningStage of pregnancy, then a woman (if she does not already know about her pregnancy) may not even notice this. After all, the symptoms of an early miscarriage that occurred before the two weeks of pregnancy are almost absent.
With regard to miscarriage before the delay of menstruation, then aboutHis symptoms are difficult to say, since before the delay, miscarriage can not occur, because in order for this to happen, it is necessary that the fetal egg is attached to the uterus, and this requires time from ovulation to the beginning of the expected menstruation.
Miscarriage at an early age is considered spontaneous abortion for up to twelve weeks. Therefore, the symptoms or signs of miscarriage at the 3rd, 5th, 12th week of pregnancy will be the same.
Miscarriage is a difficult test for a woman. Even if this happens in the very first weeks, it still hurts a lot and leads to emotions.
What are the symptoms of miscarriage?
Very often miscarriages can be avoided ifSeek medical help immediately after the appearance of the first signs of miscarriage. But at the same time a woman should be informed about the symptoms of a mini-miscarriage she should contact the doctor.
Spontaneous abortion is conventionally divided into several stages. Each stage has its own characteristics.
- The first stage (threatening miscarriage). There are pulling pains in the lower abdomen. There are no excreta, the general condition is normal. This condition can be maintained during the entire pregnancy with the intake of appropriate medications, until the timely delivery begins.
- The second stage (the beginning of the miscarriage at an early stage). It is associated with the beginning of detachment of the fetal egg. There are discharges that are bloody in nature. This is the most formidable sign of miscarriage in the first weeks. First, bloody discharge can have a brownish hue, and with increased bleeding become bright scarlet. The intensity of bleeding varies from a few drops to a very strong one. Without medical intervention, bleeding can last long enough. Therefore, even with small discharge, you should consult your doctor.
- The third stage (miscarriage in progress). At this stage, the main signs of the earlymiscarriage is a sharp and intense pain in the lower back and lower abdomen, which is accompanied by severe blood loss. This stage can not be reversed; the fetal egg dies. But sometimes fetal death occurs even before the onset of miscarriage. The fetal egg in this case leaves the uterus not entirely, but in parts. This is the so-called incomplete miscarriage.
- The fourth stage is a miscarriage. After the expulsion of the deceased fetal egg from the uterine cavity, the latter,
shrinking, begins to restore its original size. A complete miscarriage must be confirmed by ultrasound.
There is also such a phenomenon asaborted miscarriage, when under the influence of certain factors a fetal egg dies, but not expelled by the uterus. Signs of pregnancy in a woman disappear, but the general condition worsens. When performing ultrasound, fetal death is noted. This phenomenon is also called a frozen pregnancy. The only way to eliminate the fetal egg from the uterus is scraping.
