Types of Miscarriage

Pregnancy loss is far more common than we are made aware, and is often experienced in the form of a miscarriage. In fact, did you know that almost one quarter of all pregnancies end in miscarriage?  See our article entitled Miscarriage: An Overview for important miscarriage information. Find out about the symptoms of miscarriage and whether your symptoms could be a sign of trouble or a threatened miscarriage.  Learn when you should worry and call your doctor.  While not all miscarriages are preventable, sometimes early action can save the day.  Read up on signs of prenancy problems today.

Ectopic Pregnancy

Ectopic pregnancies, also known as tubal pregnancies, result in a pregnancy loss and can be extremely dangerous to the mother. An ectopic pregnancy is when the embryo attaches itself outside of the uterus, often on the fallopian tubes.  As the pregnancy grows this can then cause the fallopian tubes to explode, causing severe pain and bleeding.  Learning the signs and symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy may just save your life as you need to be treated before disaster happens.  Although ectopic pregnancies are traditionally treated through surgery, a new treatment method can help you avoid surgery and a hospital stay.  Find out more about your treatment options.  

Bleeding In Pregnancy

Bleeding during pregnancy can also be alarming. At worse, it may signify a molar pregnancy or a miscarriage. Another complication that is quite common and always ends in a miscarriage is a blighted ovum.  Find out more about these conditions: warning signs and symptoms, and learn what you should do if you are bleeding during your pregnancy.

Coping with any kind of pregnancy loss can be very traumatic and it takes time to recover, particularly if you've experienced multiple miscarriages.  Find out more about the causes of multiple miscarriage and about what it means for you if you have lost more than one pregnancy.  Many women who have suffered from multiple miscarriages may have a fertility problem.  Seeing a fertility specialist may be what you need to see a pregnancy to full term.  Start reading so that you will know when it is time to seek help and so that you can stop experiencing the loss of a miscarriage.

Hello, In January I had a check-up but I havent been to the doctor before that in about a year or so. My results came back + for chlamydia. My boyfriend and I were both treated with Doxycycl HYC. We both took the medication and completed without having any intercourse. We informed the doctor that we were trying to conceive and she told us to not have unprotected sex, wait one week after the medication and a follow-up check-up to continue trying. We completed the medication at the end of May 2011 because we waited so long to get on the same page and start the meds. As of today (7/511) I am two anda half weels latemy period was due on 6/23/11. I keep hearing and reading the chances of me getting pregnant with this type of infection are slim because it makes both partners really sterile. My tummy feels so weird and it feels like a bulge in my stomach. I feel nausea, small cramps. sleepy, hungry, more often bathroom trips and my stomach seems to be poking out some but I am already kind of fat. I took a pregnancy test 6 days before my period was due but I have not taken another sinced I missed it. What is my deal?!! Now just 3 days ago I began pink spotting and minor cramps. This morning I woke up with a full pad, clots and mild cramps. This still feels nothing like my period and totally different experience. I have read about this and I feel that I having a miscarriage. I am going to the ER as soon as my BF arrives home. What do you guys think?
