If you experienced a first-trimester miscarriage or an ectopic pregnancy and have no other chronic health issues and no prior history of pregnancy loss, you probably don’t need a specialist. It is important to remember that 80% of miscarriages occur in the first trimester and that anywhere from 10 to 25% of pregnancies will result in a miscarriage. Miscarriage is the loss of a pregnancy before the 20th week of development. Greater than 95% of losses occur before the 12th completed week. When a miscarriage occurs this early, often if all of the products of conception (placenta, fetus) have passed, and if the bleeding is minimal, and if the woman experiences normal menstrual cycles, than she may not need to see a doctor.

After a miscarriage, you don’t necessarily need to go to the doctor. Many women believe that a doctor is necessary to “clear out” the uterus and make sure that you are ready for pregnancy again, but this is not necessarily true. Vaginal bleeding, similar to a menstrual period, may last up to a week after a miscarriage.; Light bleeding, or spotting. Depending on your menstrual cycle, normal periods should resume in 3-6 weeks. Lower abdominal pain similar to menstrual cramps may last up to 2 days after the miscarriage.

Depending on how far along your pregnancy was, these symptoms can last for just a few days — like a normal period — or up to three or four weeks. If you experience any of these symptoms, see your doctor so he or she can diagnose the miscarriage and help you with the next steps. Continue Reading Below. Call your doctor after a miscarriage if: You have a fever or chills. Septic (infected) abortions are rare in cases of miscarriage, but a fever or chills could mean you have an infection.

The doctor. Keep in mind that you may need to check in with your doctor if you haven’t stopped bleeding after your miscarriage or D and C. If you’ve retained tissue, you may need more surgical intervention. Most of the things that cause miscarriage are beyond your control. Even so, talk to your doctor and take these steps to reduce your risk: Take the.

Here’s everything you need to know about D&C after miscarriage. If you’ve experienced a missed miscarriage, your doctor might recommend a “d and c”, or dilation and curettage, to end the pregnancy. Usually after one loss (if this is indeed your first loss), they don’t do any testing, except perhaps your RH factor and perhaps your hormone levels.

List of related literature:

A repeat ultrasound scan should be offered if, after the period of expectant management, the bleeding and pain have not started (suggesting that the process of miscarriage has not begun) or are persisting and/or increasing (suggesting incomplete miscarriage).

If you have any vaginal bleeding during pregnancy, your health care provider can help determine if the bleeding is likely to result in miscarriage or if it has another cause that does not threaten the pregnancy.

If the miscarriage is not complete or if the fetus has died but no tissue has passed, you may require a dilatation and curettage (see p.1075) to remove remaining tissue from your uterus.

However, if the patient is stable, it should be emphasized that heavy vaginal bleeding with passage of clots and/or tissue is highly likely to represent a miscarriage rather than a ruptured ectopic pregnancy.

The miscarriage is incomplete if the cervix remains open and the uterus still contains some fetal tissue (which may need to be removed to prevent further haemorrhage).
