Types of Abortion
An abortion can occur spontaneously due to complications during pregnancy or can be induced, in humans and other species.
In the context of human pregnancies, an abortion induced to preserve the health of the gravida (pregnant female) is termed a therapeutic abortion, while an abortion induced for any other reason is termed an elective abortion.
The term abortion most commonly refers to the induced abortion of a human pregnancy, while spontaneous abortions are usually termed miscarriages.
Recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) or recurrent miscarriage (medically termed habitual abortion) is the occurrence of three consecutive miscarriages. If the proportion of pregnancies ending in miscarriage is 15%, then the probability of two consecutive miscarriages is 2.25% and the probability of three consecutive miscarriages is 0.34%.
The occurrence of recurrent pregnancy loss is 1%. A large majority (85%) of women who have had two miscarriages will conceive and carry normally afterwards.
Causes of abortion /miscarriage
Fetal and maternal complaints are the two major causes of miscarriage.
Causes related to fetus are mainly related to genetic makeup of the fetus. The most frequent cause of miscarriage in the first trimester of pregnancy is abnormal development of fetus, that is either due to chromosomal abnormality or teratogenic factor.
Immunological factors may also present as a responsible factor for miscarriage. Another common cause of early miscarriage includes abnormalities in implantation. Placental circulation does not develop due to inadequate implantation, leading to poor fetal nutrition, which ultimately may cause miscarriage.
Miscarriage may also cause when the corpus luteum on the ovary fails to produce sufficient progesterone to maintain deciduas basalis.
Failure of the growth of fetus due to an infection may also cause miscarriage, infections like Rubella, Syphilis, and Poliomyelitis readily cross the placenta and can produce complications.
Teratogenic drugs like isotretinoin can be a cause for miscarriage.
Other causes mainly include
- Ager over 42 years
- Excessive smoking during pregnancy
- Alcohol intake during pregnancy
- Serious health problems like kidney disease.
Signs and Symptoms of Abortion
The physical symptoms of a miscarriage vary according to the length of pregnancy:
- At up to six weeks only small blood clots may be present, possibly accompanied by mild cramping or period pain.
- At 6 to 13 weeks a clot will form around the embryo or fetus, and the placenta, with many clots up to 5 cm in size being expelled prior to a completed miscarriage. The process may take a few hours or be on and off for a few days. Symptoms vary widely and can include vomiting and loose bowels, possibly due to physical discomfort.
- At over 13 weeks the fetus may be easily passed from the womb, however the placenta is more likely to be fully or partially retained in the uterus, resulting in an incomplete abortion. The physical signs of bleeding, cramping and pain can be similar to an early miscarriage, but sometimes more severe and labour-like.
Diagnosis of miscarriage
Primary diagnosis mainly include physical examination along with medical history
Other investigations include
- Ultrasound scan – to get an image of the womb
- Examination of pelvis – to examine or check the source of bleeding
- Urine and blood test – to assess the beta-human chorionic gonadotrophin and progesterone hormones which are associated with pregnancy
