I just has a natural miscarriage, but still wanted to get a d&c. Is that still possible?

Not recommended.: If you passed all the pregnancy tissue by yourself, there is no real need to clean the uterine lining with a surgical d&c. Alhough this is a relatively safe procedure, there can be scarring to the uterus, a uterine perforation or a reaction to the pain medications or anesthesia given. So doing a D&C if it is not needed is not usually recommended. If you do have another miscarriage, consider a d&c. ...Read more

I had a miscarriage nov 10 I was supost to be 11 weeks they did a u s said it look like 5 6 weeks and that I was gonna have a natural miscarriage whil?

Well: The pregnancy likely stopped evolving at 5-6 weeks though you were 11 weeks pregnant, these usually pass on their own, Misoprostol at 800 mcg vaginally can speed things up but at 5-6 weeks it doesn't always come at once leading to heavy bleeding and a d@c. Don't worry, ask about misoprostol, look it up, and get some pain medication to expedite. Sorry for your bad news. ...Read more

Had a natural miscarriage in oct and have had a normal cycle six weeks after and now I have on and off periods for five days very heavy came 10 day e?

Cycle after miscarry: After a miscarriage, the usual advice is to wait 3 months of cycling before trying again to make sure your body gets back to normal.

They say there's higher chance of getting pregnant after d&c? How about natural miscarriage?

They say there's higher chance of getting pregnant after d&c? How about natural miscarriage?

Yes: For any one couple, a recent pregnancy increases the odds of another pregnancy for them. This is true whether the recent pregnancy is a live birth, or miscarriage or ectopic. A tubal pregnancy does however increase the odds that there may be another tubal pregnancy or infertility so check with your doctor. I don't think losing the pregnancy spontaneously or having a D&C changes those odds. ...Read more

Fetus died at 6 wks. Been 6 wks. If you had to choose between getting a D&C or waiting to have a natural miscarriage at home. Which would u pick? Why

Not equal choices: Although the choice is yours, the two options are not equal (if I understand the info you gave:) if you mean it has been 6 weeks waiting for a miscarriage of a 6 week pregnancy then D&C is clearly your best option. Expectant management ("waiting") is fine for a period of a few weeks, but after 6 weeks the risk of infection and bleeding is unacceptably high. Not equal choices. Good wishes ...Read more

I had miscarriage at 6 weeks. It was natural no d and c. What are chances that my next pregnancy will be a miscarrige.

No increase: If this was your first miscarriage, your risk is no higher with the next pregnancy than it was for this one.

Good luck. ...Read more

How can I do a natural miscarriage. Am not ready to have a baby.

Not a natural way: Fortunately, America is beyond that (that was before modern medicine and before getting rid of laws against inducing miscarriage). Any woman who needs to induce a miscarriage (easier to say abortion), such as if her baby fetus has a genetic defect or other major birth defect, can get help from her Ob-Gyn doctor. The doctor has good, reliable ways to do this ("natural" is not in the picture). ...Read more

Should there be a confirmation of no tissue left after a natural miscarriage (6 weeks)?

Possibly: Some doctors will get an ultrasound after a miscarriage to confirm uterus is empty, but it's not required. I tell my patients if they are worried I'm happy to scan them, but if their bleeding has ceased, they can also just wait until they have their next cycle typically in 3-6 weeks. Hope that helps! ...Read more

I've had a miscarriage at 8wks but my baby was 5wks. How long does it take for everything to pass naturally? Should I be worried?

Miscarriage: Miscarriage is more common than people realize. Usually early on tissue passes without intervention. There is an increased risk for infection if the products of conception (what's left after miscarriage) do not pass within a period of time, usually a fair rule of thumb is to give it up to 2 weeks, but be seen sooner if any fever, discharge that is foul smelling and/or increased pain. Good luck! ...Read more
