3 options: I am sorry you have to go through this difficult experience. It may be several days to weeks before you pass the pregnancy spontaneously. You can wait a while longer, or take medications to make your uterus contract to induce the miscarriage or have a surgical procedure (d&c)to remove the pregnancy. Your doctor should discuss all of these options with you.
