Causes of Miscarriage

Updated on December 2, 2012

There are a lot of reasons why women have miscarriages. It can be because of a disease the woman has, infertility, issue, stress, biological concerns like the mother's age,but to identify each and everyone of them it will just be a little difficult.

I guess one main issue usually is when a woman has undiagnosed type 2 diabetes. Not all women realize that if you are diabetic there is a big chance you may miscarriage more than one time. The reason uncontrolled blood sugar can cause miscarriages. Since it also causes hypertension, diabetes can cause a lot of complications during pregnancy thus causingthe miscarriage.

Age makes a huge difference too. Genetically a younger egg (meaning a younger mother) may produce healthier and much viable eggs. Cells develop accordingly and less chances of acquiring genetic defects.

More importantly genetic problems are also considered if your family has a history of miscarriages or fertility problems then it is possible you might have the same problems too.

To aviod miscarriages be on top of your health. Talk to your doctor.

      Hi Rangerwife. I know it must be frustrating to not have the answers you need. Sometimes even doctors can't help you. The thing is sometimes cell development just cease to divide at a certain stage. Upon conception the egg should divide into 2 in a matter of hours. A promising embryo comes from a cell that divides into about 16 times in about 3 days. There is a good chance it will be able to implant itself in your uterus when the lining of your uterus has thickened properly. It will continue to divide until it becomes a zygote. You're lucky if it does, but others cease to grow any further just because the cells aren't healthy as you may think it is. In your case however I don't know how far along were you? Was it just a couple of weeks or were you in your 1st trimester?

      I had a miscarriage last week and at this time there is no known reason. I'm 25 and perfectly healthy. I had two perfect pregnancies in the past. There seems to be no explanation and it's driving me crazy.
