POC: Products of conception between 5-8 weeks will often have a small translucent sac measuring approximately 1 inch. Often this is surrounded by pink tan spongy tissue. Often seen with attached blood clot. Hope this helps.

What does a miscarriage look like at 1 week?

What does a miscarriage look like at 1 week?

? 5 weeks: Pregnancy is dated by the time passed since the last period. At the time of a positive pregnancy test, you are already 4 weeks pregnant. While this doesn't make sense, this is the system we use. A 5 week pregnancy loss may show up as a heavy or delayed period with or without cramping.

What does a miscarriage look like? What are the risks of not seeing a doctor?

Irregular bleeding: If you think you may have had a miscarriage, you can do a pregnancy test. The test will remain positive for a few days after a miscarriage. It is not really necessary to see a doctor for an early miscarriage, unless you have heavy or prolonged bleeding or pain afterwards. Occasionally, a woman may need a D&C to control the bleeding, but this is not common. You should not TTC again for 6 months

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.

Why do I keep having early miscarriages? I have had two. The second was at five and a half weeks along. What could this mean?

Why do I keep having early miscarriages? I have had two. The second was at five and a half weeks along. What could this mean?

See a REI specialist: You still have a chance of a healthy pregnancy 'on your own', but after 2 or more miscarriages we do tests to find out why. Possible causes include autoimmune conditions like antiphospholipid antibodies, blood clotting disorders, low egg supply, problems in the uterus like fibroids or a uterine septum, hormonal problems, or male or female genetic problems. Get checked out by a rei specialist.

Had two miscarriages late for five days should I see a doctor?

Pregnancy test: You could wait another two days and take a home pregnancy test; if you are not pregnant, then there really isn't anything to worry about.

What does the tissue and bleeding look like when having a miscarriage?

What does the tissue and bleeding look like when having a miscarriage?

How far along?: Depending on how far along you are, the bleeding will probably just be a lot of clots and bleeding. Clots may be the size of an orange. If you are passing large clots or bleeding very heavily (soaking more than a pad per hour) call your doctor immediately or go to the emergency department.

Hi I just had a miscarriage at five weeks and am having thoughts that my boyfriend says aren't normal, I want to keep what I found and freeze it just incase one day there will be a way to bring it back, am I going mad?

Seek support: I'm sorry to hear about your loss. It sounds like you are having a hard time letting go of the pregnancy. At a time like this it could be helpful to talk with a therapist who specializes in working with women who have experienced a miscarriage.

Is it normal to still be nervous about a miscarriage at five and a half months pregnant?

Is it normal to still be nervous about a miscarriage at five and a half months pregnant?

What is normal?: Its understandable about wanting your baby to be healthy and full term for any pregnancy. Having said that, keep a positive attitude, and try to meet each month's end in your pregnancy as a milestone to a fantastic outcome. If you've had a miscarriage or fetal loss before, it's even more understandable to be nervous at any time in the pregnancy. Be good to yourself and be positive, it will help...

Had a natural miscarriage in oct and have had a normal cycle six weeks after and now I have on and off periods for five days very heavy came 10 day e?

Had a natural miscarriage in oct and have had a normal cycle six weeks after and now I have on and off periods for five days very heavy came 10 day e?

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. This not unusual but I recommend that you review this with your doctor to make sure that all is well. You didn't describe the circumstances of your miscarriage so your dr would be able to make some sense out of this for you.

If I have an abortion then have a scan a day later will the tech be able to tell ive had a abortion or does the womb just look like a miscarriage?

Probably can not: I am wondering why you would be having an ultrasound the day after an abortion? One would not be able to tell that you had an abortion

What does gestational sac look like in miscarriage? Is it completely empty? It should at least have veins in it, right?

What does gestational sac look like in miscarriage? Is it completely empty? It should at least have veins in it, right?

?????????: An empty sac is just that, a sac without a fetus or fetal pole in it, all tissue can have veins, hat does not have anything to do with whether the sac is empty or not, once it is determined the pregnancy is non viable it should be removed either with meds or minor surgery or a combo of both.

Can I have implementation bleeding twice 7 days apart? I'm five weeks pregnant and found light pink with discharge. Had a miscarriage 3 months ago

Word definitions?: Implantation s when a new fetus moves into the uterus. You are pregnant. You cannot get pregnant again when you are already pregnant. Bleeding when pregnant is not a healthy sign. You should probably contact your OB for instructions.
