Causes of miscarriage
Among the causes of miscarriage in the early stages of the experts put the genetic breakdowns in the first place: the woman's organism prevents the development of the fetus with gross genetic abnormalities.
The cause of spontaneous abortion may be changes in the hormonal background: an insufficient level of the hormone progesterone( it is even called the "keeper of pregnancy"), an increased or decreased function of the adrenal glands, and problems with the thyroid gland.
Chronic infectious and inflammatory diseases of the female genital area also prevent the normal development of pregnancy, for example, such diseases as endometritis. In the waiting period of the baby, TORCH infections are dangerous, especially viral - herpes and cytomegalovirus.
A habitual miscarriage may be a result of anatomical defects in the development of the female's internal genitalia, the consequences of abortion and surgical interventions on the uterus. Failure in the work of the immune system of a woman can also be the cause of habitual miscarriage. The immune system of the mother either rejects the fetus, or destroys its own structures: the vessels of the placenta, etc.
