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

Physical/Emotional: First, I am so sorry about your miscarriage. It lists in you information that you have had 3 pregnancies that did not come to term, is this correct? Make sure your doctor knows your specifics and go from there. This can be very difficult on a relationship.

Is it true that most natural miscarriages or medical miscarriages end up needing surgical intervention anyway? No FHB at 7weeks 1day. No bleeding yet.
Not most: Some but not most spontaneous or medically induced miscarriages end up with retained tissue for which a curettage must be performed. Discuss your particular case with your doctor who can tell you the risks and benefits of the alternatives and make a decision together. 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

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.

You didn't describe the circumstances of your miscarriage so your dr would be able to make some sense out of this for you. ...Read more
