Could a Couple of Simple Prescriptions Prevent Miscarriage?

If you're like me and you've experienced the devastation of miscarriage, you are probably looking for answers. What if two simple prescriptions from your doctor could potentially help you keep your next pregnancy and deliver a healthy, full-term baby? This worked for me, and I‘m here to share my experience. This may very well be the blog post I wish had existed when I was younger! Want to know what I’m talking about? Keep reading!

1. Progesterone Suppositories

In 2013, I was blessed to deliver a healthy baby boy—my first son. My husband and I were overjoyed! But fast-forward to 2015 and it was a very difficult year, as I experienced two miscarriages in a row. We were both devastated. We asked my OBGYN if anything could be done. That’s when my wonderful doctor prescribed progesterone suppositories. The suppositories are tubes full of the hormone progesterone, which may be helpful to some pregnant women. The pharmacist fills the tubes with the correct amount that the doctor advises is needed. To absorb this natural hormone into one’s body, all one needs to do is insert it into the vagina at bedtime. I will warn you that in my case, the suppositories did cause dizziness, although I would still recommend them. So do be careful and stay in touch with your doctor about any possible side-effects.

I believe the progesterone suppositories helped me keep my next pregnancy, as I went on to give birth to our second baby boy at the end of 2016. It’s definitely not a guarantee that this will work, but upon researching the topic, it becomes clear that this prescription has helped thousands of women who have dealt with recurring pregnancy. It is definitely worth discussing with your doctor if you’ve had miscarriages and are looking for answers.

2. Low-Dose Aspirin

Could taking low-dose aspirin help sustain pregnancy in women struggling with recurrent miscarriage? Research seems to suggest strongly that this could be the case. I believe that, combined with the progesterone suppositories, low-dose aspirin helped me keep my fourth pregnancy. If anything, it’s worth having a discussion with your doctor about it.

“A possible explanation for lowered miscarriage rates among women with a history of miscarriage who took low-dose aspirin, according to researchers, is that the aspirin helped to increase blood flow to the uterus, a phenomenon that needs to be explored further.” —VeryWellFamily.com

Disclaimer: I’m Only Speaking from My Experience

I’m not a doctor, so please consult your OBGYN regarding what I’ve shared. I can only speak from my experience and try to be an encouragement. After one successful pregnancy and birth and two miscarriages, getting on progesterone and low-dose aspirin helped me keep my fourth pregnancy and give birth to my second son. I’m so grateful for that! As you can see above, there’s research to support the helpfulness of these prescriptions during pregnancy, and I hope this information is useful and helpful to many women out there who are looking for answers. May God bless you!
