Expert Urges Women To Consult Specialist In Cases Of Miscarriages

Dr. Olufemi Samuel, a consultant gynecologist, has urged women who have repeatedly lost pregnancies to seek medical attention rather than blame a spiritual issue for their losses.

He asserts that medical issues are to blame in almost every instance of repeated pregnancy losses.

Dr. Samuel emphasized the need for appropriate studies of the cause of recurrent miscarriages to halt them by noting that certain recurrent pregnancy losses attributed to spiritual attacks are frequently caused by genetic and hormonal abnormalities.

He recommended ladies who frequently lose their pregnancies see a gynecologist to determine the source of the terrible loss so they may receive the right care.

A woman is said to experience recurrent pregnancy losses if she has lost three pregnancies in a row in the first trimester and two in the second trimester, according to Dr. Samuel, who recently took office as Vice President of the Nigerian Medical Association, Ondo State branch.

“Genetics is one of the many reasons why pregnancies end in miscarriage repeatedly. Genetic factors account for the majority of first-trimester losses.

“God formed man in such a way that nature seeks to weed out any pregnancy that would cause the child to be born imperfectly.

Therefore, he explained, “Nature has a way of getting rid of such a baby if, for some reason, there is a genetic anomaly, maybe a chromosomal anomaly, that may not be compatible with life.”

The maternal health specialist went on to say that illnesses like diabetes mellitus can also put a mother at risk for miscarriage.

He added that the patient may experience recurrent pregnancy losses when there is a metabolic issue, such as low thyroid hormone in the body or a high level of sugar, which is diabetes mellitus. The body needs to be in the best possible condition to carry the pregnancy, he said.

According to studies, viral illnesses like Lassa fever can potentially result in abortion during the first trimester of pregnancy.

Recurrent pregnancy losses can also be brought on by other illnesses like Asherman’s Syndrome, drug use during pregnancy, and vascular problems, according to Dr. Samuel.

It might not be a reoccurring pregnancy loss, he noted, adding that some pregnancies might result in abortion.

“Pregnancy may be the cause of those times when your menstruation is a little delayed. Simply put, your body gets rid of them. Your body does this to ensure that there aren’t many abnormal people, he said.

Samuel emphasized the need for obstetricians to be consulted by women who consistently lose their pregnancies.

“Patients who experience repeated pregnancy losses must visit an obstetrician. They must ascertain the cause.

But in this region of the earth, we attribute anything we are unable to understand to a spiritual issue.

“In this part of the world, there is a little bit of superstition.

I’m not saying there aren’t spiritual energies; there are both good and bad spiritual forces, but most of the time, the majority of what we label as spiritual can have an explanation, perhaps because we haven’t looked deeply enough to discover it,” he remarked.

The National Centre for Biotechnology Information recently reported that over 70% of human pregnancies do not result in a live delivery.

According to the researchers, the most frequent pregnancy complication is spontaneous pregnancy loss. They also noted that about 70% of human conceptions fail to develop into viable offspring and that 50% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage even before a missed period is clinically recognized or there is evidence of embryonal heart activity.

According to a study titled Genetic Considerations in Recurrent Pregnancy Loss, “spontaneous fetal aneuploidy is largely responsible for the astonishing inefficiency of human reproduction.”

Experts define fetal aneuploidy as the existence of an abnormally high number of chromosomes in a cell.
