Had miscarriage, why not try acupuncture?
An early miscarriage is the loss of pregnancy at ≤13 weeks’ pregnancy. About one in four pregnancies, where a woman has missed a menstrual period and has a positive pregnancy test, ends in early miscarriage. Nearly 125 000 early miscarriages occur annually in the UK, accounting for 50 000 hospital admissions.
Early miscarriage is usually diagnosed by pelvic ultrasound after a woman has experienced vaginal bleeding or abdominal pain. Women with a complete miscarriage, where expulsion of pregnancy tissue is complete, are managed conservatively without further intervention. Women with a missed or incomplete miscarriage may require further intervention.
Miscarriage can be a physical and emotional challenge. It is a major life event and can have a potentially devastating psychological impact on the woman in addition to the physical effects such as bleeding and pain.
There is a good chance that you will give birth to a healthy baby in the future. Only about 20% of women who have had a miscarriage have another miscarriage the next time they become pregnant.
What would you do to help for the recovery from a miscarriage?
After miscarriage, the women’s body need to recover from the event, get hormones rebalanced, get rid of the inflammation from the miscarriage, recover from the psychological impact that it caused.
Tried acupuncture? Acupuncture can help reduce stress and release the emotions, rebalance hormones, reduce inflammation to get you ready to get pregnant again. Some women have difficulty to conceive after miscarriage and acupuncture can help to get pregnant faster.
