Miscarriage and Infertility
Is it estimated that 10-25% of women will experience miscarriage in their life. Miscarriage can be physically and emotionally painful, embarrassing or frustrating. You are a strong woman but you feel like your body let you down. You know others that have miscarried and were fine. Why does it feel more difficult for you? When will the pain go away? Why doesn't your partner understand what you are feeling? When will your body stop feeling like you are still pregnant? When will it feel right to start trying again? What if you don't get pregnant right away? What will it be like if you do get pregnant again?
Having a miscarriage can be one of the most confusing and painful times in a woman's life. While it is common it can feel so isolating. It can feel like no one understands what you are going through.
