She can't get pregnant until sperms get in to her uterus to meet the ova she produced during her menstrual cycle.

She may be having tuberculosis but the chances are very rare if she is having normal menstrual cycle. There is a possibility of old PID.

This may happen due to hormonal over play. Menses are common in 21 days. It varies 28+_7 days. Soo it's normal. Bt if it's beyond 7 days before and after then there may be some reason.

Recurrent Miscarriage

IVF Specialist, Delhi
Recurrent Miscarriage

Recurrent Miscarriage

It can be heartbreaking to miscarry one baby after another. Each new pregnancy brings both hope and anxiety. And each new loss may be harder to bear, especially if you feel that time is running out. The experience can place great strain on even the strongest relationships. You and your partner might react differently from each other and that can cause great tension. Family and friends may find it harder to support you with each miscarriage; they may even think you’re getting used to loss and able to cope. And all the time there may be a sense that your life is on hold while you try – and try again – for a baby.

What is recurrent miscarriage?

Recurrent miscarriage means having three or more miscarriages in a row. It affects about one in every hundred couples trying for a baby. Sometimes a treatable cause can be found, and sometimes not. But in either case, most couples are more likely to have a successful pregnancy next time than to miscarry again.

Testing after recurrent miscarriage:

If you have had three miscarriages in a row, you should be offered tests to try to find the cause. This should happen whether or not you already have one or more children. Testing is not usually offered after one or two early miscarriages (up to 14 weeks) because these are often due to chance. But you might be offered tests after two early miscarriages if you are in your late 30s or 40s or if it has taken you a long time to conceive. If you had a late (second trimester) miscarriage, where your baby diedafter 14 weeks of pregnancy, you should be offered tests after this loss.

Why recurrent miscarriage happens?

Your risk of recurrent miscarriage is higher if:

  • you and your partner are older; the risk is highest if you are over 35 and your partner over 40;

  • you are very overweight. Being very underweight may also increase your risk. Each new pregnancy loss increases the risk of a further miscarriage. But even after three miscarriages, most couples will have a live baby next time

Known causes

Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) This blood clotting problem is the most important treatable cause of recurrent miscarriage. It happens when your immune system makes abnormal antibodies that attack fats called phospholipids in your blood. This makes the blood more ‘sticky’ and likely to clot, which is whyAPS is sometimes called ‘sticky blood syndrome’. It is also known as ‘Hughes syndrome’ after the expert who named it. It is not clear why these antibodies cause miscarriage. They may stop the pregnancy embedding properly in the uterus (womb);or they may interfere with blood flow to the placenta, which supports the baby.

APS can also lead to problems in later pregnancy, including the baby not growing enough, pre-eclampsia or stillbirth.

Other blood clotting problems Some inherited blood clotting disorders can cause recurrent miscarriage, particularly after 14 weeks. These include factorV Leiden, factor II (prothromobin), gene mutation and protein S deficiency.

Abnormal chromosomes The chromosomes in every cell of your body carry hereditary information in the form of genes.

Everyone has 23 pairs of chromosomes, and 22 of these are the same in men and women. The 23rd pair are different because they determine gender. Men normally have one X and oneY chromosome and women two X chromosomes. A baby inherits half its chromosomes from each parent. About half of all miscarriages happen because the baby’s chromosomes are abnormal. This is not usually an inherited problem: it happens when the egg and sperm meet or soon after the egg is fertilised. The older you are the more likely this is to happen. Much less commonly (in less than five in one hundred couples with recurrentmiscarriage), one partner carries a chromosomal defect called a ‘balanced translocation’. This doesn’t cause a problem for the parent, but it can be passed on to the baby as an ‘unbalanced translocation’.

This means that some genetic information is duplicated and some is missing.

Cervical weakness (also known as ‘incompetent cervix’) Some women – probably less than one in a hundred – have a weakness in the cervix that allows it to dilate too early.

This is a known cause of late (second trimester) miscarriage.

Possible causes

Abnormally-shaped uterus Some miscarriages, particularly late ones, are thought to happen because the uterus (womb) has an abnormal shape.

It may be divided down the centre – known as ‘bicornuate’ or ‘septate’ uterus;or just one half of the terus may have developed – known as ‘unicornuate’ uterus. It is not clear from research how many women with recurrent miscarriage have these abnormalities. Also we don’t know how common these problems are in women who don’t miscarry. This makes it impossible to be sure that they cause miscarriage

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) Women with this condition have many small cysts in their varies. They also tend to have hormonal problems, including high levels of insulin and male hormone in the blood. It is these problems that are thought to play a part in recurrent miscarriage, but it is not clear how.

Infection

Some serious infections can cause or increase the risk of single miscarriages. These include toxoplasmosis, rubella, listeria and genital infection. But it is not clear whether infection plays a role in recurrent miscarriage.

Immune problems Raised levels of uterine NK (uNK) cells may increase the risk ofrecurrent miscarriage, ut more research is needed to prove this. It’s important to know that these uNK cells are different from he NK cells found in general circulating blood (e.g. from your arm). Diabetes and thyroid problems Uncontrolled diabetes and untreated thyroid problems can cause miscarriage. But well-controlled diabetes and treated thyroid problems do not cause recurrent miscarriage.

Simple use a lanolin based ointment like Boroline or nipshield thrice daily and see if it helps. Most commonly this is due to dry skin.

If your periods are regular, 6 days before periods can be counted in safe window. Still do a urine pregnancy test to confirm.

Then gradually start an exercise program, eat right and continue breast-feeding to help shed those pounds. Breastfeed Your Baby. Breast-feeding your baby can help you shed pounds. Start Exercising. Walking after a C section can speed recovery. Eat Healthy. Eat a healthy breakfast. Limit Unhealthy Foods. Cesarean sections take more of a toll on your body than uncomplicated vaginal deliveries because you have a major surgery to recover from. With the right balance of healing, light exercise, muscle work and good eating, you' ll be able to reach your goal weight and develop the strength and stamina you' ll need to care for your new addition. Step 1 Wait until you see your doctor for that first follow-up appointment. You may feel ready but your incision site and healing tissues may tell another story. It can take up to six weeks on average before you' re ready to start an exercise routine, according to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. Step 2 Start strengthening and tightening your abdominal muscles with some easy breathing exercises designed to work your abdominal muscles. You can perform these exercises from the first day after your C-section, according to The Ohio State University. Place your hands or a pillow over your incision site and breathe deeply, filling up your diaphragm with as much air as possible. Exhale slowly and repeat until your muscles feel tired. Repeat several times per day. Step 3 Eat a diet high in nutrients and low in saturated fat and excess sugars. This will help you lose weight and will support healing and a robust milk supply. Choose whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables and low fat protein sources, according to MayoClinic.com. Make sure you' re only eating when you' re hungry. Step 4 Consider breastfeeding your baby. Researches in a study published in the April 1993 Journal of the American Dietetic Association found that breastfeeding moms lose more weight, more quickly than moms who formula feed. Breastfeeding calls on your body to burn additional calories as it creates and replenishes your milk supply. Step 5 Start a cardio program that includes a low impact but heart-rate increasing activities like walking or swimming. Warm up before exercising and cool down afterward to avoid muscle strain or injury. Perform these exercises at least three times per week, according to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. Perform muscle strengthening exercises on off-days as muscle increases fitness level and burns more calories. Stop exercising if you feel a tearing sensation at your incision site or if you develop nausea, dizziness or any type of pain. Start slowly and build back up to your pre-pregnancy workout routines.
