Inevitable Abortion / Incomplete Abortion / Fetal Death In-Utero
Why Do Miscarriages Occur?
Miscarriage, Inevitable Abortion, Incomplete Abortion and Fetal Death In-Utero are terms that are often used interchangeably. Yet the definitions are very distinct. Ultimately, what occurs is the loss of an early pregnancy (less than 12 weeks). The majority of pregnancies that end in miscarriage are unknown to most women as they occur before their menses and therefore they may never even knew they were pregnant. The majority of miscarriages are due to abnormal genetic tissue but there are numerous reasons for early miscarriages to occur which include infection (syphilis, tuberculosis, nonspecific vaginitis, mycoplasma, e-coli), connective tissue disease, diabetes, exposure to radiation, kidney disease, thyroid disease, liver disease, uterine abnormalities such as fibroids, hormonal imbalance (estrogen, progesterone) and numerous other causes. Normally, evaluation for one or two miscarriages does not occur. After 3 miscarriages a work-up for miscarriage is advised.
What is the Definition of Miscarriage?
Miscarriage occurs with the loss of a pregnancy prior to viability. The other name for Miscarriage is spontaneous abortion.
What is the Definition of Inevitable Abortion?
Inevitable Abortion is when the cervix (lower opening of the uterus) is dilated (open) and there may be vaginal bleeding, uterine cramps, lower pelvic pain and pressure occurring when the pregnancy tissue may or may not be seen at the external portion of the cervix. The fetus may still have a heart beat or may not be seen on sonogram.
What is the Definition of Incomplete Abortion?
The Cervix (lower opening of the uterus) is dilated (open) and pregnancy tissue has passed or is passing through the cervix. On sonogram there may be some or no pregnancy tissue visiualized inside the uterus. Symptoms include vaginal bleeding (mild, moderate or heavy), abdominal and pelvic pain, possible low grade fever, and possible uterine and pelvic tenderness that could indicate infection.
What is Fetal Death In-Utero?
A fetus that does not have a heart beat which means that the fetal tissue is no longer living.

What are the options when having a miscarriage?
