Natural?: If you have had unprotected sex there is the morning after pill but short of that, further interventions other than a medically overseen abortion is potentially dangerous to you and the fetus. You should seek medical attn to discuss this issue further.

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

Not most: Some but not most spontaneous or medically induced miscarriages end up with retained tissue for which a curettage must be performed.

Unfortunately, even those of us with crystal balls, can't tell you with certainty whether or not a surgical procedure will be needed ...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
America is beyond...: Fortunately, America is beyond that (that was before modern medicine and before getting rid of laws against inducing miscarriage).

The doctor has good, reliable ways to do this ("natural" is not in the picture). ...Read more

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
There are certainly multiple factors that can contribute to a woman's miscarriage risk (ex.: age).
Nevertheless, about 25-50% of pregnancies by approximately 6 weeks from a woman's menstrual period will spontaneously end.
For those women who actually know they are pregnant, roughly 15-20% will recognize they had a miscarriage.
Take heart: as the weeks pass, miscarriage risk decreases markedly. ...Read more
What is the quickest and safest way to natural miscarriage at 20 weeks? What are some remedies that will help for the miscarriage?
