Miscarriage After Pregnancy

by saranya

I am so upset. I was so excited to be pregnant after trying for a year. As soon as I found out I was pregnant, I joined this birth club and I was due June 25th. We have two healthy boys with no history of miscarriage. Everything was going great. Last Monday, I got the H1N1 vaccine thimerosal reduced (mercury reduced for pregnant women). On Tuesday morning, I started cramping and on Wednesday I started bleeding heavily. My hcg was 50 on Wednesday and I was almost 6 weeks along so it was low. They still thought that I might be pregnant but on Friday my hcg was down to 22. I am an emotional wreck. I feel like I had a healthy baby and I caused this by getting the H1N1 vaccine. My doctors pushed it. I researched online and there have been many miscarriages after the H1N1 vaccine but they haven't been reported since it is hard to say what caused the miscarriages. I hope that I did not cause this. I wish everyone the best.

Probably not the H1N1 vaccine

Hi Saranya,

I am so sorry for the loss of your baby. I don't know if it is of any help in your emotional healing process, but since your miscarriage, several research studies have been carried out and none have found a higher risk of miscarriage among women who took the H1N1 vaccine. On the contrary, getting the flu seem to be associated with higher risks for the mom and fetus.

So even if the miscarriage was very hard for you to go through, since it happened when you were 6 weeks pregnant, it is quite likely that something went wrong with the little embryo or the implantation process for other reasons. That early in pregnancy, miscarriage risk is still quite high, and noone really can tell you why it happened.

If you are curious on reading more about H1N1 vaccine and pregnancy and miscarriage, here are two links: This link is to a research study on the safetly of influenza vaccination during pregnancy. and
Here is an interesting article tearing apart a not so serious study claiming that H1N1 vaccine leads to miscarriage.

Warm wishes,
