Had a miscarriage just over a week ago and I have a uterus infection and on co-amoxiclav does it ease bleeding and blood clots?

Not directly: Antibiotics were prescribed to treat your uterine infection. They do not directly treat uterine bleeding with clots. However, if your infection is the cause of your bleeding, then the antibiotics can help indirectly by resolving the underlying cause. Talk to your doctor about other medications to reduce your bleeding, depending on what your most recent ultrasound showed. Take Care! ...Read more

DiscussWithYourDoc: That's a very complicated issue. Much too complicated to address here. But first, let's be grateful you have a brand spanking new baby & that you are all right. Decisions on whether or not to do a C-section may have to be made at the last minute if everything isn't going according to plan. If not that, then other factors may compel the doctor to do one, but when there is time, they should discuss with you ...Read more
