O06.7: Unspecified abortion Complete or unspecified, complicated by embolism

You are having, or you had, a miscarriage or a terminated pregnancy.

During pregnancy, a child develops inside your uterus. In the case of a miscarriage the child, not yet fully developed, is prematurely expelled from the womb. There can be various reasons for a miscarriage. It may be that the child has not developed properly and died in the womb. It may also be that other reasons caused the miscarriage and the child died immediately afterwards.

The termination of a pregnancy involves the pregnancy being terminated through external measures.

One or more of your blood vessels are also blocked. Blood vessels can get blocked when various substances mingle with the blood and then get stuck in the blood vessel. This may be clotted blood, drops of amniotic fluid, air or other substances, for example. When a blood vessel is blocked, organs or tissue, for example, may no longer get an adequate supply of oxygen and nutrients. As a result the organs or tissue involved may get damaged.
