    Default Natural miscarriage....any follow up needed?

    Hi

    I unfortunately miscarried my 8 week pregnancy while I was overseas last week.

    I didn't seek any medical attention, I'm pretty sure I passed the sack/embryo (TMI I passed two golf ball sized clots) and since then (about 5 days) the bleeding has stopped.

    I feel physically well now.

    Should I see my GP to arrange a scan or bloods or anything?

    Thankyou.

    I didn't. I lost the sac and blood stopped within two days.

    Hi,

    very sad to hear about your MC. I had multiple MCs, one at around 8 week mark. I decided to miscarry naturally even though I discovered it at 6 weeks. my process was incredibly painful and I have passed a complete sac, size of a fist, with the little cord attached to it. DR said everything happened perfectly normal. The only thing we had to do is another scan to make sure nothing has been left behind and a blood test after the end of the first period, to make sure no chronicle infection is developing. Good Luck!

    Sorry for your loss

    I thought all had been passed with my 2nd mmc however follow up scans showed I retained some lining. Having already had a loss prior to dd, I knew I had passed the sac intact and assumed that as the bleeding had stopped completely, everything was gone. I still required a d&c 5ish weeks later as the remainder of my uterine lining wasn't budging.

    If it was me, I would at least pay a visit to my gp.

    Thankyou, that was what I was thinking, I should have a follow up scan. I've got an appointment with my GP this week.

    Just an update. My GP is not happy with my HCG levels, they are not as low as she would like, so I have to have another blood test in a week to check if they have gone down at all. I very much hope they have as this seems to be dragging on forever and I really wanted to avoid any surgical intervention.

    Either way, I am glad I went to the GP!

    Thanks for updating, was wondering how you got on. I know the feeling of things dragging on, as if its not bad enough initially, you have a continuous reminder with follow up appts.

    As a side note, after my first mmc, it still took 6wks for my hcg to drop and that was after a straight up d&c (i should have been 12.5wks though so it had a long way to fall)
