5.5 weeks ago, I miscarried at 8 wks. I have regular follow up w/my ob and will see him again 1/4. I'd like to avoid d&c, what might make one necessary?

Miscariage. There are two ways to manage a miscarriage surgical management with a d and c and medical management with medication. The decision on which is the better mode of management is usually made in consultation with your physician.
