There is nothing more devastating than the loss of pregnancy at any stage, especially after experiencing conception difficulties.
“Recurrent miscarriage” happens when a woman loses two or more consecutive pregnancies in the first or second trimester, or the loss of three or more pregnancies before 20 weeks gestation. About 25 percent of known pregnancies end in miscarriage, according to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
The emotional side-effects of suffering a miscarriage are as real as the miscarriage itself. As a woman experiences depression and anger afterward, a feeling of helplessness and self-doubt also ensue.
Causes of recurrent pregnancy loss are not completely understood. Possible causes can range from hormonal disturbances of hormones such as thyroid, estrogen, and progesterone; uterine irregularities such as fibroids and polyps; to genetics and immune disorders. At Inner Peace Acupuncture & Wellness, Adrienne works with each patient to identity the underlying cause of the recurrent losses and customizes treatment plans.
Acupuncture for Treating Miscarriages
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine will help to prepare the body for conception and prevent future miscarriage by normalizing hormones, increasing the blood flow to the reproductive organs, increasing egg quality, and improving the uterine environment for implantation. A typical treatment plan will include the following:
- Detailed health history intake
- Acupuncture treatment
- Chinese herbal medicine prescription as needed
- Nutrition and lifestyle counseling
- Fertility massage as needed.
