In medicine, multiple abortion refers to the occurrence of two or more induced or spontaneous abortions in a woman’s lifetime. It is also known as repeat abortion.
The causes of multiple abortion can be varied and may include genetic abnormalities, hormonal imbalances, infections, uterine abnormalities, autoimmune disorders, lifestyle factors such as smoking or substance abuse, or a combination of these factors.
Individuals who have experienced multiple abortions may be at increased risk of future pregnancy complications, including preterm delivery, low birth weight, and placental problems. They may also experience psychological distress related to the loss of multiple pregnancies.
Prevention of multiple abortion involves identifying and addressing any underlying medical or lifestyle factors that may be contributing to the problem. This may involve medical treatment for conditions such as thyroid disorders or infections, lifestyle modifications such as quitting smoking or reducing alcohol consumption, or counseling and support to address psychological distress related to previous pregnancy losses.
It is important for individuals who have experienced multiple abortions to receive appropriate medical evaluation and treatment, as well as emotional support to cope with the experience. Women who have had multiple abortions may benefit from counseling and support groups to help them navigate the physical and emotional aspects of the condition.
