[건강톡톡] “Sudden separation from the fetus”… When should I try to conceive again after a ‘miscarriage’?

There is a high chance of miscarriage during the early stages of pregnancy. According to the Korean Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology, 80% of spontaneous abortions occur within 12 weeks. A persistent abortion, a type of spontaneous abortion, is when the fetus remains in the womb after death with the cervical canal closed.

Q. I am concerned that miscarriage tends to occur in the early stages of pregnancy.

The frequency of miscarriage is around 10 to 15% of pregnancies, and it can be said that it happens around 1 in every 6 pregnancies. This number increases as the mother gets older.

Q. Can I have a sudden miscarriage with no symptoms?
Even if the fetus dies during a miscarriage, most cases do not show any symptoms, so it is often detected during regular check-ups. Most cases are chromosomal abnormalities or abnormalities in the fertilized egg, so it’s not the mother’s fault.

Q. Do I have to have surgery if I have a miscarriage?
When the fetus dies, it can come out of the womb on its own after a few days or weeks. However, it is accompanied by severe lower abdominal pain and vaginal bleeding, and it is unpredictable when the fetus will be born. In some cases, it does not come out and causes inflammation inside, leading to sepsis or severe endometritis.

Therefore, it is better for mothers’ health to undergo curettage surgery as soon as possible after the diagnosis of miscarriage.

Q. It’s been two weeks since I had the curettage operation due to a miscarriage, and the result of the pregnancy test came out positive. Is there any chance of pregnancy?
For about two to three weeks after surgery, pregnancy hormones remain in the body and can be marked positive. After 4 weeks, you rarely have any hormones left in your body, but not enough to respond to a urine test.

FYI, normal ovulation is possible 2-3 weeks after surgery, so if you are having sex, you may be pregnant. However, it is recommended to avoid intercourse after surgery for at least 4 weeks. Before that, there is a risk of infection, and having sex before you are fully healed can cause irritation.

Q. What are the precautions after couch surgery?
After curettage surgery, menstrual-like bleeding lasts for about a week with some breast pain, and then the first period starts 4-6 weeks after ovulation is restored. For two weeks after surgery, which is prone to inflammation, it is recommended to avoid excessive exercise, intercourse, and bathing, and to eat a diet that is easy to digest to avoid constipation or diarrhea. Also, avoid drinking alcohol or excessive fatty foods while taking antibiotics or anti-inflammatory drugs prescribed after surgery.
