What is abortion?


Abortion refers to expulsion of the fetus from uterus before the 20th week of gestation. When abortion occurs spontaneously, it is referred to as spontaneous abortion or miscarriage. Vaginal bleeding occurring during the first 20 weeks of pregnancy is referred to as threatened abortion. Bleeding varies from light spotting to heavy bleeding. This may or may not be attended with abdominal pain. Recurrent or habitual abortion refers to three or more spontaneous abortions occurring one after the other without any intervening pregnancy.

The risk factors that predispose a woman to threatened abortion are age above 35 years, abdominal trauma, bacterial/viral infection during pregnancy, chromosomal abnormalities, multiple pregnancy (pregnancy with more than one fetus), growths in uterus like fibroids, problems with placenta, smoking. The various factors that predispose one to repeated abortion are malformation of uterus, cervical incompetence, hormone disorders including hypothyroidism, PCOS, diabetes mellitus, chromosomal disorders, endometritis, infections such as toxoplasmosis, rubella, herpes simplex, cytomegalovirus, coxsackie virus and measles. In addition, lifestyle factors such as smoking, alcohol and drugs intake also put women at a high risk of repeated abortion.

Homeopathy is a highly advanced science known to effectively treat many gynaecological and obstetric conditions. Homeopathy remains very successful in treating the tendency towards recurrent abortion and threatened abortion. Homeopathic medicines to treat these conditions are prescribed based on the individual symptom presentation. Each case and its symptoms are studied in detail before a prescription is decided. The month during which miscarriage occurred previously, the character of bleeding, accompanying pains, menstrual history are noted down. In case of threatened abortion, a gynecologist should be consulted while Homeopathic medicines play a supportive role. Homeopathic medicines to treat recurrent and threatened abortion should always be taken only after consulting a qualified Homeopathic physician. Self medication should be avoided at all cost.
