Hello and welcome to HCM
in first trimester is associated with chromosomal disorders in majority of cases.
It is a nature's way to get rid rid of fetuses with chromosomal disorders so that the next progeny is healthy enough.
For histopathological examination and genetic studies, the products of conception have to be sent to a pathology lab.
This process involves preserving the sample in a chemical called formalin.
Formalin inhibits bacterial growth
in the sample.
Any delay in the process or preserving the sample in inappropriate chemical will cause putrefaction of the sample.
Your report suggests that the sample had got infected by environmental micro-organisms before being received in the laboratory for culture and chromosomal studies.
This is an external phenomenon and has no bearing on future pregnancy
However, since you have had a first trimester abortion
you will have to remain more vigilant and visit your doctor regularly and promptly in second pregnancy.
Thanks and take care
