advice please, incomplete miscarriage?

Postby patiencenotmyvirtue » Thu Feb 26, 2015 11:03 pm

I apologize in advance. This is a little graphic. I really hope someone can help me though.

I was prescribed misoprostol yesterday for a missed m/c. I used the pills as directed. After having no cramping whatsoever I thought they weren't going to work. Well about 12 hours later (still no pain just spotting) I felt something coming out and I ran to the bathroom. It was the gestational sac. Fully intact. However it was not attached to the placenta. Since then I have only had normal period like bleeding and no signs of the placenta. Not even any large clots. It's been 14 more hours. I'm concerned that my body thinks it's done miscarrying. I never felt any cramping so I'm worried the misoprostol isn't working like it should. I do go back to the Dr tomorrow but wanted to hear from someone who has been through this. Am I just not giving my body enough time?

Depending on how early the mc was, there isn't a placenta early on. Sorry for your loss and hope you are feeling better.

Just wanted to update in case anyone reads this looking for advice. Two weeks after taking the misoprostol I had a scan which showed placenta as well as my uterus being twice normal size. I opted for the d&c since there were no guarantees that a second dose of misoprostol would work. On March 13th the did the d&c and removed the remaining tissue. Now I'm just waiting for my first af so we can ttc again.

Congrats on your surprise BFP after the D and C. A few girls on another thread mentioned you and I happened to come across this

My GP told me to wait 3 cycles before TTC again and I am not sure I can do that. I also had a D and C a few days before mothers day I was meant to be almost 8 weeks but baby had passed away sometime between last Tuesday and Thursday (when no heartbeat was found anymore).

I got taken in for the D and C because I had been bleeding since the previous Sunday but the scan on Thursday showed the sac and embryo was still there and they wanted to reduce chance of infection and also I was pretty over miscarrying for almost a week and it still not being over. I spotted for two days (sat and mothers day) after the D and C and then it stopped.

How many weeks/days did you leave it before babydancing? I think DH just wants to be close but I am unsure

I have the same problem right now. I expelled most of the tissue naturally, which was under a lot of pain. But theres still some minimal tissue left and got misoprostol to expell the rest but its not working. No reaction at all and i even stopped bleeding completley. I never saw anything that looked like placenta or a sac. Its been over 17 hours now since i used it. Any advice?

For when you can TTC again after everything is gone, i was told as soon as you had one normal period, but it can take a few weeks before you return to normal and having that first period again.
