How effective is Co amoxiclav and Metronidizole for treating post miscarriage infection. Had both drugs before in the past year. ?

Reasonable: These are reasonable choices for that medical situation. If side effects develop, a change may be warranted. I would consider probiotic foods like miso, sauerkraut or others to replace lost bacteria in the gut, along with foods high in fiber to feed the colonies of bacteria. ...Read more

I feel like I have post miscarriage infection, continued bleeding, nausea, abdo upper and lower pain. BUT repeated blood tests and US are normal. Why?

I feel like I have post miscarriage infection, continued bleeding, nausea, abdo upper and lower pain. BUT repeated blood tests and US are normal. Why?

Exam: An exam and cultures may be necessary in order to diagnose an infection. These don't necessarily show up on ultrasounds or blood tests. You usually develop a fever if you have a post-abortal infection and you fail to mention that so it is also possible that your nausea and pain could have another cause . Hope this helps and you are feeling better soon. ...Read more

Second round of Co Amoxiclav and Metronadizole, will this be enough to treat my post miscarriage infection? Nausea, bleeding, stomach ache.

Second round of Co Amoxiclav and Metronadizole, will this be enough to treat my post miscarriage infection? Nausea, bleeding, stomach ache.

Second Round?: If your uterine infection didn't respond to these medications the first time, it is unlikely to respond to a second round. You may need different antibiotics. Its also important to have an ultrasound to make sure your uterus is really empty. If there is anything left behind antibiotics may not be enough. You may need a D&C and IV antibiotics to clear the infection. Best wishes! ...Read more

If u conceived a year ago but had a natural miscarried without infection, been ttc 7 months after with no success, high chance of blocked tubes?

If u conceived a year ago but  had a natural miscarried without infection, been ttc 7 months after with no success, high chance of blocked tubes?

No: If there was no infection, there is no reason to think that there is an increased risk of blocked tubes. Having sex 2-3 times weekly and seeking help if not pregnancy within 1 year would be the typical advice. If periods are irregular or there are other medical issues, seeking care after 6 months of trying would be a good idea. ...Read more

Can kidney infection cause miscarriage?

Can kidney infection cause miscarriage?

Possibly: Any infecton can make the body more prone to miscarry. A kidney infection ranks right up there, especially since the kidneys sit so close to the uterus and if they have a signficnat infection the entire area can get irritated, and that can lead to a miscarriage.

Symptoms of infection after miscarriage? Is backache which goes up and down means I have infection? Bleeding stopped after 7 days of miscarriage

Symptoms of infection after miscarriage? Is backache which goes up and down means I have infection? Bleeding stopped after 7 days of miscarriage

Miscarriage : The best way to determine if there is an infection is to visit your doctor where blood work and a urinalysis can be performed. Infections can be associated with fever, chills, and night sweats. The back ache may also be unrelated to the miscarriage. Don't delay as the infection can spread. ...Read more
