Miscarriage is a spontaneous abortion of the fetus in a pregnancy. Vaginal bleeding or spotting may be common in the initial pregnancy, but other than that it is considered as a threatened miscarriage. Miscarriage occurs when a pregnancy ends without an obvious cause before the fetus is capable of survival. This is a common complication of pregnancy.

The separation of the fetus and placenta from the uterine wall is the cause of the end of a pregnancy. Some of the causes or reasons that lead to a miscarriage are as follow:

1. Chronic Illness: An abnormality in the mother during the second trimester of pregnancy can result in miscarriage. Chronic illnesses like high blood pressure, lupus, diabetes, kidney disease or thyroid problems can lead to spontaneous abortion.

2. Disease of Internal Organs: Abnormalities or diseases of the internal organs like fibroids, multiple gestations, poor muscle tone of womb and abnormal growth of the placenta can put your system under stress causing the pregnancy to end.

3. Acute Infections: Acute infections and emotional traumas can also result in the pregnancy to end.

4. Abnormal fetus: Most of the miscarriages in the first trimester are caused by abnormalities in the fetus. The genes are responsible for the abnormalities and this risk increases as the woman ages.

5. Apart from these, external factors like alcohol, drugs, caffeine and tobacco can also threaten a pregnancy.

The symptoms of this condition may be the following:

1. Bleeding: One can experience slight spotting or severe bleeding with blood clots.

2. Cramps: Cramps may be accompanied by pain in the lower abdomen. It may occur on one side or on both the sides or only in the middle region. The pain may radiate to the lower back, buttocks and the genitals.

3. Symptoms of pregnancy may end: The usual symptoms and signs of pregnancy like nausea and tenderness in the breast may end with an occurrence of a miscarriage.

One should visit the doctor if she experiences any of the above symptoms or any passing of tissue, weakness, pain while urinating or dizziness. The doctor may perform an examination, tests and an ultrasound.

The treatment for this condition can include some safe natural home remedies. Home remedies can be used to prevent miscarriage and continue a healthy pregnancy. Some of the natural home remedies to prevent ending of pregnancy are as follows:

1. Indian gooseberry juice taken every morning with honey is beneficial to prevent miscarriage.

2. Stop consumption of alcohol, tobacco and stop smoking as soon as you find out you are pregnant.

3. Drinking of raspberry tea everyday in helpful since the raspberry tea helps in strengthening the uterus and shortens labor.

4. Tea with nutmeg is effective for this condition.

5. Asafetida is helpful and is a simple natural home remedy.

6. Decoction of black gram with water is helpful in reducing the fear of miscarriage.

7. Asparagus is beneficial in treating the reproductive problems in women.

8. The diet of a pregnant woman should be healthy and nutritious and she should avoid unhealthy and unhygienic junk food.

9. Ascorbic acid in regulated quantity should be taken to prevent miscarriage.

Follow these natural home remedies to maintain a healthy pregnancy.

symptoms for lupus in women

    What does lupus do to the different organs of the body, and what would the symptoms include.?
    One of the characters in a story I am writing is dieing of lupus in the early 1940’s. Her character is suppose to have had flares of the disease for years and years, but the disease is becoming more and more serious until a point where she is so weak she can barely walk. Is that far-fetched?

    1. Linda R

      I attended a funeral for a member of my lupus support group. She was 36 and died of a stroke. She had antiphospholipid antibody syndrome that often occurs with lupus.

      Half of us will have kidney disease. There is a woman with lupus in my apartment complex whose kidneys have totally failed. The doctors have stated that she would most likely not survive a transplant. She is on dialysis 3 times a week. The lupus nephritis will ultimately kill her.

      I know a man whose wife died from lupus when it attacked her liver.

      A young woman I know died of lupus kidney disease while waiting for her third transplant.

      I nearly died from lupus in 2003. I had bone marrow failure, pancytopenic anemia, pericarditis (very common in lupus), pleurisy and pleural effusions (also very common), and beginning renal failure.

      As recently as 20 years ago, a diagnosis of lupus was considered a death sentence.

      The meds we take to try and control the lupus have some nasty side effects. I know two lupus patients who have had avascular necrosis of the hips from high doses of steroids. Both women have had both hips replaced. One was only 22 at the time. Many of the immunosuppressive drugs we take for the more serious cases predispose us to cancer because they suppress tumor necrosis factor.

      90-95% of lupus patients have joint pain and inflammation. At my worst, I could not even stand to shower.

      PS My lupus is well controlled now through a combination of medications, regular medical monitoring, and a very proactive approach to managing the disease.

      PPS I think your character is dying not dieing. And her character is “supposed” not “suppose” to have had flares. You might want to consider having someone proof read your story before you submit it anywhere.

    How serious is Lupus during pregnancy?
    My daughter had preclampsia with her first pregnancy. She is approximately 9 wks. along and is showing signs of the condition already. Last week her doctor told her that current symptoms she is having all point to the possibility of Lupus. He ran some test, and said depending on the test results may decide to hospitalize her for a few days for further testing and begin a treatment plan. I am terribly worried for my daughter and her unborn baby. Just wondered if anyone out their has experienced somewhat the same, and looking for some feedback. Thank you in advance.

    1. TyrannosaurusBex

      Don’t worry. Lupus rarely affects the baby of a woman who has it, but it isn’t nice at all for the mother. Often women contract Lupus whilst pregnant or after they’ve had a baby, as Lupus is often triggered by this. I once knew a woman who had her Lupus at its very worse after she had her first baby. I’ve known 2 women with it, and the second one was so exhausted she spent most of a year in a wheelchair. But Lupus is rarely fatal nowadays, and it’s not disfiguring. They usually use steroids to treat it. (I’m not talking about illegal drugs, I’m talking about medical drugs that have nothing to do with muscle building). Lupus can range in severity. Your daughter’s baby will be fine.

      I’m not going to guarantee you that everything, including the baby, will be ship-shape and fine and dandy, but it is VERY likely. I know the woman above gave you some bad news about premature or ill babies, but the truth is, the two women I know have had 2 or more babies, all completely normal and healthy. Seriously. Not trying to make you feel better. Have a little faith, dear:) Good luck xxx

    why can some women control lupus and others cant?
    my mom suffered from lupus for 15 years and recently passed away last january. doctors say that lupus can be controlled through chemotherapy, she did every kind of treatment available for the disease and still could not fight it. but in other women with lupus can fight lupus with treatment why do you think some can fight it and others cant?

    1. Elvis4ever

      I think your mom did fight it – for 15 years . this is a very debilitating illness and it can be soul destroying with its multiple symptoms and the effect they can have on the mind as well as the body. I hope you can be comforted by the fact that she stayed with you so long and endured all those horrible treatments to keep her family close, it takes a lot of courage to go through chemo and I have the greatest respect for those that do it so they can have maximum time with their loved ones.
      I am sorry that you lost your mom, she is now with the angels and in no more pain. Bless you all

    Can birth Control trigger the symptoms of lupus?
    I am taking Birth Control and wondered if it could cause symptoms of lupus, such as fatigue, weight gain, night sweats, muscle pains, hair loss. I am 20 yrs old and i weigh 127 and am 5’8. and lupus runs in my family. i went to the doctor and they did test results i find them out thursday, but thought i asked.

    1. mandyj67

      Yes it can honey, sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings. Recently completed studies have shown women who are on birth control injections or pills (especially the higher dosage ones) have been found to have a higher incidence of Lupis, especially if it runs in the family* Since Lupis does run in your family, I would suggest that you seriously rethink your birth control method.

    Can anyone explain hydrocephalus and lupus to me?
    I heard it on a show and I am just curious as to what they are, and what is caused by them, etc?

    1. X

      Hydrocephalus is a disorder in which excess fluid builds up between the skull and the brain, progressively swelling the head. It’s also known as “Water on the Brain”. You get headaches like no ones business, nausea, and your spinal cord will compress and eventually break under the water pressure. Convulsions, Coma, and Death will occur as time goes on. Slow development occurs in infants with the disease.

      Lupus is an autoimmune disease found mostly in women. It manifests most obviously in a red butterfly rash across the patient’s nose. The body’s immune system attacks its own cells, causing pain and degeneration of the tissue. Aches, inflammation of organs, joint pain, and poor circulation are all symptoms of Lupus.

      Hope this helps!~

    Do you have experience with interstitial cystitis?
    I was recently diagnosed with IC, although I’ve had problems all my life. I had been told by countless doctors that there was nothing wrong with me. About 5 years ago, I started having muscular/joint symptoms and have symptoms of lupus, fybromalgia, and ankalotis spondylitis, but not enough to be diagnosed with anything, which of course results in more doctors telling me it’s in my head. I just read a study that shows an unknown corrolation between IC and these other problems. I feel so despondant knowing that I have spent so many years in pain with doctors telling me there’s nothing wrong. Has anyone else with IC experienced anything like these symptoms or this kind of attitude with doctors?

    What could cause sudden joint pain and swelling?
    I am a 33 year old woman who is 15 pounds overweight. Yesterday, I had pain where my skull meets my neck. Today, I woke up with that same pain, but also joint pain my right hand, both wrists, and knees, and my right elbow. Pain is worse on the right side overall. Rigt hand fingers noticably swollen. It is Sunday, so my doctor is not in. Any ideas as to what this could be? Can I wait until tomorrow to see a doctor?

    1. mmrn

      This certainly isn’t any kind of diagnosis, but this also happened to me last spring and it was lupus. Sudden onset of joint pain and swelling is a symptom of lupus. (SLE) You should go to the E.R. today. Blood work can be drawn which can help with the diagnosis as well as any necessary treatment. The physician there may start you on prednisone which is a steroid that will alleviate your pain and swelling rather quickly. Also, you can take an anti-inflammatory like Motrin every 6 hours which will help with the pain. Good Luck to you and I hope you are feeling well soon.

    Have you been diagnosed with drug induced Lupus ?
    !0 years ago began having problem with elevated blood pressure. Was treated with the usually prescribed meds. Within the past ten years I have had a variety of unusual and often preplexing symptoms that the doctors couldn’t find good answers for. Lots of guesses and lots of unsuccessful treatments and increased frustration and misery until recently. The diagnosis is drug induced Lupus and it is believed to be caused by my blood pressure meds. Bingo. The symptoms have developed over the same period I’ve been on the meds. My question is: Any known effective alternatives for Blood Pressure Control? Anyone else with Lupus have bizarre skin and hair folllicle issues? Any one know a reputable doctor in Kansas City Missouri to advise on alternative treatments? Any one know of a web site to purchase alternative B/P treatments that you or someone you know have had personal experience with? Are there suggestions for a great support website for Lupus?

    1. Healing Oneself

      Hi WIngsOfGrace

      Here are some ideas to heal the issue. Also learning about detoxifying the blood by doing colon and liver cleanses will change your health forever.

      Cause
      Food allergies (there is a 100 percent correlation between lupus and food allergies), rheumatoid arthritis, other connective tissue diseases, parasites, candidiasis, bowel problems, and digestive enzyme deficiencies can create symptoms that mimic or exacerbate SLE. Migraines, epilepsy, and psychoses must also be ruled out before a proper course of treatment can be decided upon.

      Both forms of lupus primarily strike young women (90% of cases) and young children.

      The drugs hydralazine, procainamide, and beta blockers can cause false-positive readings of SLE, and can also produce a lupus-like condition that disappears when the drugs are no longer taken. Birth control pills and environmental stresses can also exacerbate lupus symptoms.

      ——————————————————————————–

      Natural Cures

      Diet: Eat an organic, whole foods diet. Also avoid overeating and limit your intake of dairy, beef products, and polyunsaturated oils. Also screen for food allergies and avoid all foods to which you are allergic or sensitive. Increase your intake of vegetables, especially green, yellow, and orange, and consume non-farm-raised fish several times a week.

      Herbs: Supplementation with Swedish bitters with each meal can increase hydrochloric acid production. Also drink an infusion of nettle twice a day. Other useful herbs include echinacea, goldenseal, licorice, pau d`arco, and red clover

      Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment.

      Hyperthermia: Hyperthermia involves artificially creating fever in the body for the purpose of boosting immune function. Hyperthermia can be a highly effective method of eliminating toxins and heavy metals, as well as infectious bacteria and viruses that cannot survive in elevated body temperatures.

      *Purified water is essential for any hydrotherapy or hyperthermia treatment. Remedies for Treating Chlorinated Bath Water offers clear instructions and recommendations.

      Juice Therapy: Drink the juice of carrot, celery, flaxseed oil, black currant oil, and garlic.

      Nutritional Supplementation: Hydrochloric acid (HCL) deficiency is common in people with lupus, therefore HCL supplements with each meal is advised. Other useful nutrients include vitamin A with beta carotene, vitamin C and bioflavonoids, vitamin B complex, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, calcium, magnesium, selenium, zinc, essential fatty acids, proteolytic enzymes taken away from meals, digestive enzymes taken with meals, and the amino acids L-cysteine, L-methionine, and L-cystine.

      Topical Treatment: PABA cream applied topically can help ease symptoms.

      Best of health to you
