A miscarriage at any gestational age can be an emotional experience. In addition, many also question the medical measures needed to deal with it, including whether or not a 1-month miscarriage is necessary to undergo the curettage process
Without proper treatment, miscarriage can be fatal, not only to the fetus, but also to the mother. The main goal of treatment given by doctors, both during and after a miscarriage, is to avoid bleeding and infection.
Miscarriage 1 month or four weeks, including early-stage miscarriage which generally occurs under 12 weeks of gestation. To confirm a miscarriage, the doctor will perform a pelvic examination and ultrasound examination, as well as blood tests if necessary.
Pelvic examination is done to determine the condition of the cervix (cervix). If a miscarriage occurs, the cervix will dilate. While the ultrasound examination aims to detect the presence or absence of a fetal heartbeat.
The next action that can be taken is a blood test, to see the level of hCG in the blood. Low levels of hCG in pregnant women can indicate that the pregnancy is prone to miscarriage. In early pregnancy, the level of hCG in the blood should have doubled.
Well, if the results of the doctor's examination find a complete miscarriage and the uterus is clean from the fetus, then no action is needed.Doctors only need to monitor for a while. A complete miscarriage that occurs naturally, is generally followed by bleeding for about 7-10 days. However, it will completely stop after 2-3 weeks.
On the other hand, if the results of the examination find an incomplete miscarriage, the doctor will perform a dilation and curettage (D/C), which is better known to the public as a curettage. In this procedure, the doctor will gradually dilate the cervix, as well as remove the remaining placenta and fetus from the uterus.
In addition, there are also options in the form of drugs that can stimulate the body to excrete the rest of the placenta or fetus. This drug is given especially to women who have certain he alth conditions, or who need to avoid surgery.
Efforts to Get a He althy Pregnancy
In the medical world, the term miscarriage is still used in pregnancies under 20 weeks. Miscarriage can be recognized by symptoms such as bleeding, cramping or abdominal pain, fever, weakness, and back pain.
The most common cause of early-stage miscarriage, including 1-month miscarriage, is a disorder in embryo formation caused by chromosomal abnormalities. This is generally not related to the mother's he alth condition. However, some disorders experienced by pregnant women can trigger a miscarriage, including infections, diabetes, thyroid disease, hormonal disorders, immune system responses, and abnormalities in the uterus.
Miscarriage caused by chromosomal abnormalities is difficult to prevent. However, expectant mothers can take several steps before conception in order to have a he althy pregnancy, including improving a he althier diet, exercising regularly, maintaining an ideal body weight, quitting smoking, and avoiding excessive stress. In addition, since the planning period for pregnancy, expectant mothers are also advised to start taking folic acid supplements.
For women who have miscarried more than two times in a row, the doctor may recommend blood tests, genetic tests, or other tests to find the cause of the miscarriage, so that it can be anticipated in the next pregnancy.
If you suspect a miscarriage, including a one-month miscarriage, immediately consult a gynecologist. The doctor will determine your condition and determine the medical action that may be needed.
