    A miscarriage is generally characterized by the loss of a fetus before the passage of around one forty days of pregnancy. In medical terminology, a miscarriage is usually referred to as a spontaneous abortion, precisely because it happens spontaneously. According to studies, about 50% of all pregnancies end up in miscarriages and around 80% of miscarriages occur within the first three months of pregnancy. If they happen to occur after the passage of twenty weeks of gestation, they are normally termed as late miscarriages.

    The most common cause of miscarriages is primarily due to the presence of some fatal or critical genetic problem in the unborn baby, which may or may not be in any way related to the mother. Apart from this, there is a host of other causes which are held responsible for miscarriages. These may include:
    1. Cervical insufficiency (weakness of the cervix)
    2. Infection
    3. Hormonal imbalances
    4. Physical problems in the mother
    5. Medical problems in the mother
    6. Immune system responses
    7. Uterine abnormalities

    Here are a few indicators of a miscarriage:
    1. Bleeding (which can vary from light to heavy bleeding)
    2. Abdominal pain
    3. Weakness
    4. Severe cramps
    5. Fever
    6. Back pain

    1. Treatment of miscarriages normally involves three steps - a pelvic exam, an ultrasound test and blood tests to confirm whether or not it is a miscarriage.
    2. If the miscarriage is complete and yet the uterus is still not emptied of its contents, then it may be necessary for you to undergo a dilation and curettage operation.
    3. If you have gone through multiple miscarriages in the past, then the treatment will probably involve a pelvic ultrasound, a hysterosalpingogram or a hysteroscopy.

    As one of the fifth leading cause of cancer deaths for women globally, ovarian cancer is a serious ailment. This type of cancer usually cannot be detected until it has spread considerably and causes significant damage. It affects the ovaries of women who are in their late fifties and upwards. Yet, careful screening and vigilance with the help of regular gynaecology check-ups can help in detecting and treating this potentially fatal disease. Read on to know what you may be missing during those crucial gynaecology check-ups!

    Screening tests: whether or not you are risk genetically or due to the environment, your annual gynaecology check-up must include ovarian cancer screening, which will basically try to look for the earliest signs and symptoms by studying the fallopian tubes and other areas for peritoneal screening for ovarian, fallopian and primary peritoneal cancer. The ca 125 blood test can also be used in order to detect this condition.

    Ovaries: during the screening and normal check-ups as well, ask your doctor to concentrate on the size, shape and consistency of the ovaries as well as the uterus. A pelvic exam will also be helpful in detecting even the smallest anomalies that can point at the existence of symptoms.

    Pap test: it is a well-known fact that women over the age of 25 years and especially those who have been through childbirth even once, must get the pap smear test done on a routine basis so as to rule out ovarian and cervical cancer. While this test may not be able to detect ovarian cancer for many cases, it can detect this kind of cancer in the more advanced stages.

    Bloating and fluid build-up: if you are experiencing various symptoms like edema or fluid retention and bloating in the area, then you may want your doctor to put you through a screening test for ovarian cancer screening. Usually, we tend to overlook these symptoms as a part of an infection or even normal menstrual cycle, but the detection of these symptoms must be followed up by proper screening.

    Ultrasound wand: an ultrasound wand will be able to detect even the tiniest changes in the ovaries and the surrounding areas with the help of the tvus test which can find a mass in the ovary. This can then be followed up by a biopsy to tell whether or not it is malignant.

    Symptoms like too much of vaginal discharge and unusual amount of bleeding during the menstrual cycle should not go unnoticed or unreported and it is best to get a proper ultrasound done, followed by the various types of screening for this kind of cancer.
