5 ways to reduce the chance of miscarriage

1. Start your family as early as possible, the risks increase after 35 and are much higher after 40 years of age mainly due to abnormalities in the foetus.

2. Reduce your contact with all chemicals including hair dyes, lipstick, make-up etc. Reduce consumption of preserved and chemically treated foods.

3. Avoid flying as there is alot of radiation in the atmosphere.

4. Avoid taking any medication, even over the counter medicines such as panadol when trying to get pregnant.

5. Have a check-up with your gynaecologist and if it is suspected that you have an imbalance in your hormones, do a progesterone test as this is the hormone which sustains your pregnancy in your uterus. Ensure that you exclude any inheritable conditions diagnosable by a blood test.
