Likely: Sorry about the bad news. Yes. Most likely this was a problem with the embryo and not with you. It is good that you got pregnant. This often bodes well for future ivf cycle success.

Dosing is on the web: This reminds me how lucky we are to live in the United States, where women are free. Misoprostol info is online: http://www.Iwhc.Org/index.Php?Option=com_content&task=view&id=3747&itemid=614 (and other sites). Dosing varies, but for a 4-12 weeker, is about 800 mcg vaginally every 3-12 hours for 3 doses. Sublingual (under tongue) is every 3 hours. Look for the baby fetus, the size of a kidney bean. ...Read more

Your relationship to the baby's father is important also. ...Read more

I had an abortion 8 weeks ago with some spotting here and there. I am just now getting a period and it is really heavy. Is this normal?

Yes, may be normal: Even after a d and c, whether it be induced or natural, there may still be some thick lining to the inside of the uterus that will shed during the first few cycles after. Let your doctor know if it is much heavier than a cycle, like a pad an hour, though, cause that could mean there is more left over than they thought... ...Read more
