Abortion – Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

Abortion

Definition

Abortion means ending a pregnancy so that it does not result in the birth of a child. If a woman thinks she is pregnant but hasn’t had a pregnancy test done, she needs to do so as soon as possible. One in three American women will have an abortion by age 45. Abortion is one of the safest medical procedures provided in the United States and Canada today. The term spontaneous abortion, or miscarriage, is used to signify delivery of a nonviable embryo or fetus due to fetal or maternal factors, as opposed to purposely induced abortion.

There are different types of abortion:

* Spontaneous abortion- it is the most people refer to as a miscarriage is the loss of a fetus before 5 months. It is often caused by problems with the fetus or with the maternal environment in which it is growing.
* Stillborn birth (stillbirth) is usually considered to be the death of a fetus after 5 months gestation while still in the uterus (womb).
* Induced abortion is probably what most people consider “abortion,” in that a woman chooses to end a pregnancy.

Causes

Abortion may be due to pathological changes in the ovum, the uterus, or its adnexa one or both to the physical or nervous condition of the woman. And other causes due to diseases either inherited or acquired to any infectious, contagious, or inflammatory disease; to shock, injury, or accident.

If you have multiple abortions in your herd, chances are pretty good that the cause will be found in this short list. Adding to relationship problems is the effect of another pregnancy among women who have opted or have been coerced into an abortion. The second pregnancy often leads to another abortion. Studies display several concerns regarding the effect of abortion on women.

Treatment

In the event of spontaneous abortion, the tissue passed from the vagina should be examined to determine the source of the tissue (fetal vs. hydatidiform mole) and if any fetal tissue remains in the uterus (incomplete abortion).

Sepia is one of our most important remedies as a preventive of miscarriage. It is indicated by nervous irritability, laxness of tissues and a sense of weight in the anus. Belladonna.

The woman will need to see a doctor about one to six weeks after the abortion to make sure all is well.
