When the child stops growing, and the uterus stops increasing. Some women notice the disappearance of the symptoms of pregnancy as breast tenderness, fatigue, and so on, while others continue to feel as during pregnancy as the placenta continues to produce hormones of pregnancy (including human chorionic gonadotropin, because of which the home test pregnancy shows a positive result). If a woman has had an early morning sickness, missed abortion when he passes. Nausea during pregnancy decreases the stood immediately, but after a few days she also runs.
For some women, pregnancy in the early stages of the proceeds without significant symptoms, so they may not notice symptoms and missed abortion

Pregnant women should as soon as possible to see a doctor. In addition, it is best to consult a specialist immediately, even on the phone, if you instinctively feel that pregnancy is not as it should. Such intuitions women are often correct.
Temperature missed abortion does not appear immediately, but after a few days or weeks after the death of the fetus, and says that the dead fetus became a source of infection - a condition that can endanger the woman's life.
Missed abortion in the later stages is manifested mainly disappearance of fetal movements. Therefore, if the intensity of fetal movements is reduced, the woman should immediately seek antenatal care and to find out the causes of this phenomenon.
Women who have found missed abortion, often staying in a very depressed state. It is difficult to get used to the idea that the pregnancy so suddenly broken, and that they were a few days a dead child, without knowing it. It may be accompanied by a strong sense of guilt and trying to understand the cause of the incident.
The consequences of missed abortion
If you missed abortion was accidental, then it passes, usually without consequences. But only if the woman was timely medical assistance.
The missed abortion dangerous? If the fetus was a long time in the uterus, and now the infection, it can be a consequence of the development of adhesions in the uterus, which will continue to interfere with childbearing. Severe infections can lead to the death of a woman, even.
Since missed abortion is accompanied by the operation of removing the fetus from the uterus, it can lead to a breach of internal (basal) layer of the mucous membrane of the uterus, and the impossibility of further implementation of the fertilized egg into it.
The probability of getting pregnant after a missed abortion, if she was the only one, is 80-90%, that is, the majority of women will no longer have any problems with conception and childbearing. If the woman was not the only missed abortion, pregnancy is recommended only after a thorough examination and treatment. In most cases, these women may thereafter a healthy baby. If the cause of fading pregnancy is an insurmountable obstacle for the development of the fetus (genetic and immunological factors), to conceive and bear a child can be with the help of donor male or female germ cells.
Diagnosis of missed abortion
Suspected missed abortion may be a doctor during a routine inspection. In the first half of pregnancy, your doctor may notice a discrepancy in uterine size juice of pregnancy, and the second - the lack of fetal movements and his heartbeat.
If you suspect a pregnancy fade carried ultrasound (US). On ultrasound shows that the baby's size does not correspond to the term of pregnancy, and there is no heartbeat. How to identify missed abortion in the second half? Also on the appropriate size of the fetus in pregnancy for that carried out the measurement of its tubular bones. A sign of fetal death is also a decrease in the amount of deformation of the fetal head, and by the expansion of brain tissue, but this feature does not appear immediately.
Analysis in missed abortion are of secondary importance. So the amount of blood the main female hormone first half of pregnancy, human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) with missed abortion does not change immediately. Initially, the contents of hCG in the blood ceases to grow, and only a few days gradually reduced. Does the test missed abortion? By means of a pregnancy test is determined by the presence or absence of HCG in the urine. Non-pregnant women of hCG in the urine is not. But since missed abortion HCG does not immediately disappear from the blood (and therefore the urine) test for another one to two weeks or more after the fading of pregnancy is positive. That is, in fact, this test is more likely a woman will enter into error.
