Providing hope and support on Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day
Every year on October 15, women around the globe solemnly observe an annual day of remembrance for babies lost to miscarriages, stillbirths, SIDS and other causes. Our entire team understands the importance of commemorating these tiny little ones who left this world too soon. Although this heartbreaking topic has often been considered taboo, our Newport Beach fertility clinic team recognizes this day and offers treatment for those who have experienced recurrent miscarriages.
Understanding the reality of miscarriage and pregnancy loss
According to the March of Dimes, about 10% to 15% of confirmed pregnancies end in miscarriage. However, as many as half of all pregnancies may end in miscarriage because the loss may occur before a woman knows she is pregnant.
Our Newport Beach fertility clinic strives to support our patients, remove the stigma of miscarriage and provide infertility testing for patients who have suffered recurrent miscarriage.
Exploring treatment options for recurrent miscarriage
Defined as two or more miscarriages, recurrent pregnancy loss can leave you feeling devastated and hopeless. Our doctors offer advanced infertility testing to identify potential causes of repeated miscarriages. Once your physician has completed a full evaluation, we will partner with you to determine the best course of action and establish a treatment plan.
Here are some common reasons for recurrent pregnancy loss.
- Being over age 35, which results in diminished egg quantity and quality
- Structural abnormalities related to the uterus and/or cervix
- Hormonal imbalances like PCOS and luteal phase defects
- Health issues like autoimmune conditions, clotting disorders, diabetes and thyroid problems
- Undetected genetic abnormalities
