Miscarriage (pregnancy loss) can be one of the toughest fertility challenges to deal with, especially if you have experienced multiple losses. At least 60% of miscarriages are related to chromosomal abnormalities in the embryo, which has nothing to do with something you did or didn't do.
There are other reasons why miscarriage occurs, such as
structural blockage (fibroid or septum)
clotting disorders in the blood
MTHFR genetic mutation
other endocrine factors (i.e. hormonal issues - for example, thyroid pathology)
Our approach to treating recurrent miscarriage at the Toronto Reproductive Acupuncture Clinic is to take a look into the root cause of the miscarriages. This usually involves an intake and detailed conversation about your fertility and gynaecological history, physical examinations and sometimes lab work. We also review any tests you may have done with your Family Doctor, Gynaecologist or Reproductive Endocrinologist.
The good news is many of these issues are fixable and can be addressed through holistic medicine and a few lifestyle adjustments. Our experienced clinicians will work with you to get as healthy as possible prior to conception and maintain that health throughout pregnancy. We use acupuncture, herbal supplements, nutrition, and lifestyle interventions to addresses the issues that may be causing your recurrent miscarriages. If you are working with a fertility clinic, we will work with your doctor to provide safe and complementary treatments to the work you are doing with your reproductive endocrinologist.
