Do you have to go to the hospital after a miscarriage?

What kind of questions should you ask when you go to the hospital with a miscarriage?

What kind of questions should you ask when you go to the hospital with a miscarriage?

No fast answer: Ask for a referral so you can be seen after the miscarriage when you'll be better able to ask questions. About 20% of pregnancies end in loss, and in most of these we don't know, for sure, why. You'll want someone to talk with you both before and after you get pregnant the next time. ...Read more

Hospital confirmed miscarriage it's been 2 weeks since it happen and I still gettin postive htp shouldn't the levels been gone when I miscarried it was very low?

Hospital confirmed miscarriage it's been 2 weeks since it happen and I still gettin postive htp shouldn't the levels been gone when I miscarried it was very low?

Yes: Usually 90% of women will test negative by 2 weeks. However, some continue to test positive. Repeat the test in 1 week and if your still spotting/test positive, see GYN. They can do an ultrasound and blood test to assess the actual hormone level. I'm sorry you have to go to through this and I can imagine how difficult it must be.
best wishes

I had a miscarriage of 8 week I have heavy blood coming out for first 4days but nw light blood nd I dint go to hospital?

You need to see an: Ob doc or go to er if u do not have one because you must have an ultrasound to make sure u have no retained products of conception because if you do the poc have to be removed either by taking meds or a d;c and u need to know your blood type because if u are rh- then u must get a shot of Rhogam so u don't get rh sensitization and if u don't know your blood type that needs to be done. ...Read more

My period was a month/month and a half late, I'm almost positive I miscarried. If I go to the hospital can they be sure It was that?

Miscarriage: You should see you Doctor and may not need to go to the Hospital. Your Gynecologist can examine you and run some routine lab work to determine if you most likely had a miscarriage and assure you are healthy in your vaginal/pelvic area. ...Read more

I'm rh negative. I had a threatened miscarriage at 6wks and I'm 21wks now. I was never given the shot. Should I go to the hospital and request it?

I'm rh negative. I had a threatened miscarriage at 6wks and I'm 21wks now. I was never given the shot. Should I go to the hospital and request it?

No: No, Rhogam is most effective within 72 hours of an event where an RH- mother's blood may come into contact with RH+ fetal blood. This late it would have no effect.

If it's known for sure that the baby's father is RH- also, then Rhogam could be withheld because it is not possible for 2 RH- parents to have an RH+ baby, so there would be no chance of sensitization to RH+ blood. ...Read more

The hospital said I miscarried and my hcg level was 0-25 but I just took another clean blue test and its saying I'm 2-3 weeks could the dr be wrong?

The hospital said I miscarried and my hcg level was 0-25 but I just took another clean blue test and its saying I'm 2-3 weeks could the dr be wrong?

Talk to doctor: Ms. Kathryn 440: You have two related questions. It would be better to talk to your doctor for explanation. Blood HCG needs to be higher than 25 to diagnose pregnancy. It is not clear how a urine pregnancy test told you that you are 2-3 weeks pregnant. You may repeat the urine pregnancy test, be sure to follow the instructions for the test carefully. Better would be to see your doctor for a repeat blood test and if needed an ultrasound examination. ...Read more

Follow up: You need to follow up with your GYN. He or she may want to follow HCG levels down, to make sure it was a miscarriage and not an ectopic pregnancy. You can bleed like a miscarriage with an ectopic, and it can be life threatening. ...Read more

Big life decisions: Are you happy when you are lied to? Do keep that in mind if you lie to your doctor or to other people. In the US, we are a free people living in a free society, which means there is no reason to lie about pregnancy or abortion. Plan life so that unexpected pregnancies do not happen. But if they do, a couple can decide with the doctor whether or not to get rid of their baby fetus, but be honest. ...Read more

4week prego. Went to hospital for bleeding but they didn't find what's causing the bleeding. I'm still bleeding but I have no pain or clots. Miscarriage?

4week prego. Went to hospital for bleeding but they didn't find what's causing the bleeding. I'm still bleeding but I have no pain or clots. Miscarriage?

Possible: At 4 weeks it's hard to tell what's going on. About 50% of pregnancies bleed early in 1st trimester and about 50% of those go on to be miscarriages. They may decide to draw blood tests several days in a row to see if the hormone levels are going up or down. ...Read more

Went to the hospital 2 days ago they told me my hCG level was 69 then I went yesterday for a follow up and my hCG level was 33 does this mean miscarriage??

Yes.: Normal pregnancy results in hormone levels going up, especially early in the pregnancy. Generally the numbers double over about 3 to 4 days. If the hcg level is decreasing that would indicate a pregnancy loss. ...Read more

Yesterday I had an spontaneous miscarriage and now I feel dizzy and I been bleeding a lot is it normal? Should I be worry and go to the hospital?

Yesterday I had an spontaneous miscarriage and now I feel dizzy and I been bleeding a lot is it normal? Should I be worry and go to the hospital?

Dizzy and bleeding: Although bleeding is expected after a miscarriage, too much blood loss can be dangerous. If you are getting light headed/faint feeling then it would be best to see someone (urgent care or ER) as soon as possible to make sure you haven't had excessive volume/blood loss. Better to be safe than sorry in this case. ...Read more

Should I be worried or go to a hospital? I'm ten weeks pregnant and having pain in my upper stomach. I have a history of miscarriage and have been put on prenatal plus.

Hello.: Hello. Whether you are pregnant or not, if you develop severe abdominal pain, that should be evaluated. However, it is not being described as severe pain. Upper abdominal pain isn't particularly characteristic for a miscarriage. I recommend that you give your obstetrician's office a call this morning and advise of the symptoms. They will likely ask you some additional questions before determining if you should come in to be examined or not. Take care. ...Read more

I have bicournuate uterus dr last 8 week pregnant miscarriage with heavy blood clots after we go to cheke hospital dr I have lupus anticlment please ans?

Cause of miscarriage: Most miscarriages are caused by genetic abnormalities in the fetus and are unavoidable. In your case, it is possible that the bicornuate uterus may have caused it, though many women with this abnormality can carry a pregnancy to term. Lupus anticoagulant can cause miscarriages but it fairly unusual this early on. Unless there are other medical indications, there is no reason to test with one loss. ...Read more

My mother is having a miscarriage we don't know what to do and we are too far from the hospital. Pls help. She's 43?

No easy answer: Unfortunately, this is a very difficult situation. But the only way for any doctor to reasonably help out, is with an in person evaluation, blood testing and likely a pelvic ultrasound. Remember you can have vaginal bleeding during pregnancy without having a miscarriage, but more info is necessary to be able to better guide your mother. ...Read more
