Recurrent Miscarriage

Miscarriages are a common occurrence, with 15-20% of pregnancies resulting in miscarriage. Miscarriage usually occurs in the first trimester, although it may occur later in pregnancy. Recurrent miscarriage is classified by having 3 or more miscarriages in a row, regardless of other healthy pregnancies. Recurrent miscarriage can have underlying causes and there are tests that may help point to the reason. Despite the tests available, only about half of cases come up with definitive answers that can explain the recurrent miscarriages. Known causes for recurrent early and late miscarriage include: genetic or chromosomal problems, structural problems with the uterus, endocrine system problems, or premature labor. The risk for miscarriage also increases with the age of the parents. Some pregnant women experience symptoms before a miscarriage, while others are asymptomatic. Some of the possible symptoms of miscarriage include: vaginal spotting, vaginal or uterine cramping, and absence of fetal movement. If any of these symptoms occur, call your doctor immediately.

Chinese medicine and recurrent miscarriage

Chinese medicine can be effective at promoting a healthy pregnancy. Chinese medicine helps to target the cause of recurrent miscarriage, even if western medicine has not identified a diagnosis. Chinese medicine addresses underlying imbalances that may exist within the different organ systems of both partners and can help correct these imbalances to optimize the pregnancy. Chinese medicine looks closely at the menstrual cycle when identifying potential problems with fertility. The frequency, quantity, and quality of the menstrual cycle along with other signs and symptoms are all indicators of the woman’s reproductive health and the ability to sustain a healthy pregnancy. This is particularly important if there are menstrual conditions present that may inhibit a healthy pregnancy such as polycystic ovarian syndrome, endometriosis, or an endocrine disorder, which all may affect hormones during pregnancy and could potentially endanger the fetus. By identifying the pattern of disharmony causing recurrent miscarriage, Chinese medicine can help treat the underlying cause of miscarriage through acupuncture, Chinese herbs, diet, and lifestyle modifications.

Acupuncture and recurrent miscarriage

Acupuncture can be very effective in treating all stages of fertility and reproduction. In the case of recurrent miscarriage, it is advised to begin acupuncture before pregnancy in order to properly prepare the body for conception and to sustain a pregnancy. This is essential for helping to bring the body into balance and address any underlying factors which may be contributing to the recurrent miscarriage. Acupuncture can also help to prepare the endometrial lining of the uterus, which is essential for attachment and implantation in early pregnancy. Acupuncture can be used throughout the course of pregnancy and can be helpful in preventing and treating miscarriage. Acupuncture is effective at treating hormonal imbalances, poor sperm or egg quality, and autoimmune conditions, all of which are common reasons for miscarriage.

Acupuncture for emotional trauma following a miscarriage

Miscarriages can be a very traumatic experience and take a toll on the emotional and physical body. Many women experience depression following a miscarriage due to grief combined with a rapid decline in hormones. There can be intense feelings of sadness and devastation following a miscarriage. Acupuncture can be helpful following a miscarriage and can help treat the physical as well as the psycho-emotional trauma. Acupuncture is part of holistic medicine, which makes no separation between mind, body, and spirit. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can address the emotional, spiritual, and physical symptoms following a miscarriage.

    Dr. Logman is quite incredible! I’m an individual who is very active and likes to push physical boundaries in training … Coming from Long Island, I was certainly pretty jacked up physically, but within one session, I felt significantly better… She’s 1000% worth seeing regardless of your location. Thank you for actually being the healers we need!

    I was in such great hands with BK. As a lifelong sufferer of mental illness, acupuncture made me feel like a million bucks. Just so you know, you need more than 1 visit to recover from whatever ailments. Now that I’ve had 5, I feel like a whole new person. So glad this place exists! Your health is your wealth, after all. I’ll be back for more!

    Dr. Logman and her entire staff are all super nice and knowledgeable. I have been experiencing on and off back spasms for a really long time and feel like I may finally be in inching towards healing my lower back! Every session so far has left me feeling better and more relaxed.
