In the life of a married lady a feeling that is the most precious one is of being pregnant, every married couple loves to share this feeling, this happiness and this sense of entering into a new phase of life.

miscarriagesThe pregnant lady requires a lot of care and attention for the sake of giving birth to a healthy child but sometimes due to many reasons the ladies fail to carry their baby more than 20 weeks ad this situation results in miscarriage that is also called abortion.

In the medical terms, the miscarriage is the termination of pregnancy before the fetal development has reached 20 weeks. This is a very unfortunate fact that the rates of miscarriages are quite high even more than what we can imagine and the reasons for this are numerous.

Many times the pregnancy gets terminated even before the women get to know that she is pregnant and this case is very common as well. This has been reported that majority of miscarriages have occurred because of the abnormal growth of fetus and there are lots of reason that can lead to this abnormal growth.

The Miscarriage is linked to many symptoms and causes and this is very important that the ladies should be aware of these issues. In this article I am going to discuss this problem in a bit detail and first of all let’s start with the symptoms that are associated with this problem.

The levels of cramping and vaginal bleeding could be mild, moderate or severe.
