What should I do after a miscarriage
The scheduling of the tests that the couple who have experienced one or more miscarriages shall have to undergo depends on whether there is a response to the DNA test of the miscarried embryos (karyotype). For this reason, looking at the karyotype, I think this test is necessary after every miscarriage, because it can lead us to the adequate examinations we have to put the couple to, and on the other hand, save us from unnecessary and high-cost examinations.
These examinations may be the following:
- salpingography (to see if there are anatomical abnormalities in the uterus or abnormal fallopian tubes),
- hysteroscopy (to correct anatomical abnormalities in the uterus),
- hormonal tests (progesterone measurement on specific days of the cycle),
- thrombophilia testing,
- immunological screening,
- DNA testing (karyotype) of both partners
After the examinations, each case will be personalized and the plan of therapeutic interventions will be decided. Remember that in the majority of miscarriages the cause is accidental chromosomal damage of the embryo. If this is the only cause then the probability of achieving a healthy pregnancy is over 70%.
