Hollyoaks star Jorgie Porter says doctors have been unable to explain why she suffered a devastating pregnancy loss with quadruplets.

The soap favourite from Eccles recently revealed that she had miscarried a pregnancy in August after conceiving quadruplets with her boyfriend Ollie Piotrowski.

The 33-year-old actress has now reflected on their loss on her podcast Loose Lips.

She told co-host Sharon Carpenter that she was never given an explanation behind the loss of their babies.

She said: "'I think if you're a young woman if that happens you sort of question it.

"We still don't know why this happens. We have no understanding, doctors don't really tell you why.

"When that happened it was like 'oh you've had a miscarriage, that's gone.' And you're like 'okay right.'"

Jorgie says she was left to draw her own conclusions.

She said: "For me maybe four was the reason why, maybe they couldn't fit in.

"You are just left answering your own questions."

Jorgie feels that miscarriage is still a taboo subject

She added: "If this could change the way we know more about it, or if we could have more knowledge about this, if this is anything that brings to the table that would be incredible."

Jorgie, who plays Theresa McQueen in the Channel Four soap, feels that miscarriage is still a taboo subject.

She said: "Basically, because when you find out you're pregnant first of all, generally in life no one really tells anyone straight away.

"There's a certain point, a couple of months, before everyone starts to reveal to other people, and I do understand that actually because nobody really tells you about miscarriage.

"It's not taught at schools. I've never known about it in my high school or in any upbringing I've had."

Jorgie says she was left with 'so many questions'

She added: "Basically we're finding out about it in magazines and socials.

"When you live it yourself your mind goes through so many different things, so many questions, things like why did it happen? could I have prevented it? do we know why these things happen?"

Jorgie said that even doctors were stunned when they learned she was expecting quadruplets since she had fallen pregnant naturally.

"When I'd tell people I wanted to see people's shock on their face because I know I was like 'what the?'" she said.

"I remember the first thing I said was 'I'm too little for this' and Ollie was like 'there's no car that would fit us all in.'"

Jorgie admitted that her pregnancy journey was 'very stressful'

She added: "People couldn't get over that it wasn't IVF. This was natural.

"A lot of doctors were very like 'we've not seen this. This is a new thing.'"

She admits that the entire pregnancy journey after finding out that she was expecting quadruplets was 'very stressful' as they had no-one else to compare the experience with.

"There's no real excitement after finding out about quadruplets really because we were just none the wiser and the thing that does upset me is that I had no-one to relate or compare to.

"I couldn't find someone who has miscarried quadruplets at that time or someone to speak to."

Jorgie says she did confide in other women who had been through a miscarriage and compared stories.

And she praised her boyfriend for being 'super supportive' through her ordeal.

She recalled: "When we had the miscarriage they'd give you the options of how it will come out.

"And they said, 'because you've had four we don't know what will happen.'

"So I said I'd like to go under general anaesthetic and go under and have surgery and it was a big surgery.

"Ollie was there with me thinking, 'will she be OK? Will she survive?'

"I had blood transfusions in case too much blood came out and all these risks and situations they'd never done before."

She added: "I did feel in completely good hands, but just the stress of all the way up and afterwards.

"It's just a constant on edge stress, and then obviously things pop up and they remind you and you think ''oh maybe they'd be this big now, the babies.'''
