Why Is Talking About Miscarriage Still Taboo?

I started to miscarry nine weeks into my pregnancy. After two weeks of bleeding, the baby was gone.

I'd been paranoid that something was wrong the whole time, experiencing a rushing feeling between my legs a few times a day. I’d dash to the toilet expecting to see blood and wouldn’t see it, but the fear would remain. It’s something I still can’t explain. Then, one morning, I woke up knowing instinctively that things were fraying, like the aura you get before a migraine. There was a small show of blood when I went to pee and I was starting to get slight cramping pains.

When I first realized I was…

Multiple articles related to miscarriage.


Miscarriage is the spontaneous loss of a pregnancy before the 20th week. About 10 to 20 percent of known pregnancies end in miscarriage. But the actual number is probably much higher because many miscarriages occur so early in pregnancy that a woman doesn't even know she's pregnant.


The majority of miscarriages are believed to be caused by genetic problems in the embryo that would prevent a baby from developing normally and surviving. These fatal genetic errors typically are not related to genetic problems in the mother.


Other terms for the early loss of pregnancy include: •Complete abortion: All of the products (tissue) of conception leave the body •Incomplete abortion: Only some of the products of conception leave the body •Inevitable abortion: Symptoms cannot be stopped and a miscarriage will happen •Infected (septic) abortion: The lining of the womb (uterus) and any remaining products of conception become infected •Missed abortion: The pregnancy is lost and the products of conception do not leave the body


There are probably many reasons why a miscarriage may happen although the cause is usually not identified. The majority are not caused by anything that the mother has done.
