A spontaneous abortion is miscarriage which occurs based on natural causes. The cause can lie with the mother or the child. There are different types of miscarriage: Miscarriage of natural cause and intended or artificially induced abortions (so-called termination of pregnancy).
A miscarriage is a premature end to pregnancy due to the expulsion or death of a foetus weighing less than 500 grams. There are various causes that avoid a pregnancy being carried to term, resulting in a (natural) miscarriage. Uterine malformations, muscle weakness of the cervix are maternal, as well as infections or hormone disorders. Paternal causes for a miscarriage are also known, such as change to the sperm structure. Fetal causes can include incomplete nidation, changes to the genes or insufficient placenta growth.
It is estimated that about 40-70% of all fertilised ova are not carried to term. But only about 20% of all cases are perceived as a miscarriage, all the others are just a stronger menses. If bleedings or contractions occur during an existing pregnancy, it is initially called Abortus imminens (imminent miscarriage). If the pregnancy is not intact anymore, which means that the foetus has no heartbeat anymore or that it is not inside the uterus anymore, the pregnancy can’t be maintained.
Sometimes during an impeding miscarriage (Abortus imminens), the miscarriage can be prevented by bed rest and physical rest. If this is not possible, there are different forms of miscarriage, which may be followed by a curettage therapy. After that, the cause of the miscarriage should be identified if possible, so that a new pregnancy will not lead to a miscarriage again.
