Why Do Women have Miscarriages?

Miscarriage is experienced by most of the women in their lives. The woman gets pregnant when the sperm fertilizes the egg in her womb. During the time of fertilization a phenomenon called crossing over takes place between the chromosomes of sperm and that of egg. During this cross-over there is exchange of genetic segments among them which results in sharing of features of both mother and father in the baby. When this cross-over is taking place if some genetic segments are lost without getting incorporated in the destination because of unknown reasons then it might result in miscarriage. If the genetic information that is lost is not necessary for the fetus to survive for few weeks then the fetus will grow to a certain stage. When it requires further the lost information then it stops the growth resulting in miscarriage. This is called ‘missed’ miscarriage.

Another reason for miscarriage can be improper implantation of the fetus in a correct line inside the womb. Both of these events might occur due to bad luck which means no one can explain the reasons for these. One positive way of explaining this situation to happen which leads to miscarriage is the nature’s way of allowing the baby to be supported in all of its life’s form. If any natural support to the fetus not within our visualization or imagination is missing then it may result in miscarriage. The imperfect chance for survival or survival with any minor risk will not be entertained by nature to allow the baby to grow further. The chances for miscarriage reduce as pregnancy advances. About fifty percent of miscarriages occur before implantation itself. Thirty percent of miscarriages occur just after implantation. Nearly 25 percent of miscarriages occur after the pregnancy is confirmed medically.

Often miscarriage will result in bleeding for about a week or 10 days period. It is normally seen that menstruation cycle starts about six weeks after miscarriage depending on the frequency of the cycle before pregnancy.
