Objectives: Threatened miscarriage is a common disorder in early pregnancy and is seen in 20% of pregnant women. Currently, there is no effective therapeutic solution for this condition. This study aimed to determine the effects of a special food (fried egg with grape molasses) on threatened miscarriage in combination with conventional therapies.
Materials and Methods: This randomized controlled clinical trial was conducted on 93 pregnant women with mild or moderate vaginal bleeding up to 16 weeks of gestation in two groups. The control group (n = 47) used progesterone 400 mg suppository daily with abstinence from sexual intercourse and physical activity. The intervention group (n = 46) consumed fried eggs with grape molasses and the routine treatment like the control group. The treatment was considered successful if the pregnancy continued up to 20 weeks. Finally, the risk of abortion (miscarriage rate) and the duration of vaginal bleeding were compared between two groups.
Results: The risk of abortion in the control group was about 26% (12 of 45 pregnancies), while in the intervention group, it was 15% (7 of 45 pregnancies). This result was not statistically significant between the two groups (Risk ratio: 0.69, 95% CI: 0.37-1.30, P = 0.197). Additionally, no significant difference was detected regarding the duration of vaginal bleeding between the intervention and control groups (P = 0.699).
Conclusions: There is no significant statistical relationship between the consumption of “fried eggs with grape molasses” and reduction of abortion risk.
