Have you had a miscarriage quite often? This is a case of balanced translocation, let’s learn about it to see if you are experiencing this situation or not.
A healthy body is what everyone wants. However, biological changes in the body are difficult to identify and control, balanced translocation affects human health both men and women, it is dangerous for pregnancy, increasing the risk of recurrent miscarriage. For more please check out our article.
What is a balanced translocation?
Balanced translocation is when parts of a chromosome break down and change positions. They can cause serious health problems or are harmless depending on the situation.
In some cases, many people are not aware of their status when a translation is available. This is a balanced translocation, a chromosomal translocation that is at risk of recurrent miscarriage.
When cells divide to make sperm or egg cells to reproduce, it may lack genetic material. Lead to miscarriage depending on the gene and chromosome affected. The broken chromosome segment is not enough for normal growth thus causing the above phenomenon.
The rate of recurrent miscarriage occurs
Up to 4.5% of recurrent miscarriages couples are one or both parents have a balanced translocation. Research suggests that couples without equilibrium are less likely to have a miscarriage than couples with a balanced translocation. There is also evidence that chromosomes associated with equilibrium displacement are more likely to miscarry than others.
Check the balanced translocation
Karyotype tests can diagnose balanced displacements, blood samples of both parents are checked and analyzed. Not only does the mother have a balanced translocation related to recurrent miscarriage, but the father can also be a carrier. So when you have a fertility problem, do both parents’ tests for the most accurate results.
How to treat balanced translocation?
The most serious side effect on the health of balanced translocation is recurrent miscarriage. The rate of successful pregnancies in couples with a balanced translocation is minimal. However, when a recurrent miscarriage occurs, it will greatly affect the health and emotions that make it difficult to continue the pregnancy.
For women with multiple miscarriages, it will affect the physical and cause many complications such as leaving scars in the cervix, mental instability. Since then, couples want to try many methods of pregnancy according to technology, the more impatient it is for a pregnancy to succeed.
One treatment is the preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD). That is in vitro fertilization makes it easier to test embryos and genes, thus making sure there is no equilibrium displacement. However, the cost of this method is very expensive, not every couple is eligible to implement it. So some couples choose to keep trying without science intervention.
With our article, you have a better understanding of equilibrium displacements. You have seen the impact and the consequences. Couples should check immediately if recurrent miscarriage to seek prompt treatment. Thank you for reading our article. I hope you will be in good health to welcome angels to this life. Wish you always healthy!
