Most miscarriages are caused by genetic and chromosomal abnormalities, and unfortunately cannot be prevented. However, the good news is that these types of miscarriages should not have much of an impact on your ability to get pregnant in the future.
If you have an unhealthy lifestyle, talking to your physician and making some changes to take better care of your health can help reduce the risk of miscarriage. Here are some tips that could help you prevent a miscarriage!
- Exercise and eat healthily
- Avoid alcohol and drugs
- Limit your caffeine intake
- Practice self care through yoga or meditation!
- Avoid radiation and harmful amounts of chemicals such as lead and arsenic
- Make sure all medication that you are taking are safe for pregnancy (if you are pregnant)
- Seek treatment for pre-existing medical conditions such as hormonal imbalance, diabetes, or thyroid diseases
Maintaining a safe, active, and healthy lifestyle can not only reduce the risk of miscarriage but increase your chances of fertility as well. If you are having trouble conceiving, speak to your doctor about what changes you can make. Hormone testing is a great way to learn more about what might be causing pregnancy loss or infertility, so consult your physician on whether that is the best course of action for you!
