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 doesnt 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

12 week vacuum abortion procedure done a week ago, will obgyn be able to detect on ultrasound or will it look like a miscarriage?

Like a miscarriage: As long as the abortion was performed correctly, the only thing visible on sonogram now should be some leftover blood clots (similar to a recent miscarriage). Your uterus will still be enlarged compared to a non-pregnant uterus. And there will still be pregnancy hormone (HCG) in your blood. Honestly, your OB/Gyn will not judge you for having an abortion if that's what you're worried about. ...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?

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
