    Default Retained product - treatment options?

    Hi there, an ultrasound has just revealed a small piece of retained product in side. I have no symptoms of infection, just fresh staining n my panty liner every few days. Can anyone explain what treatment options are usually offered? I think it Is having a significant impact on my milk production, so am looking to do something about it.

    PI am 6wk pp. thanks.

    You will probably need to have a D&C. Generally a half day in hospital

    I had a D&C however that was suggested to me because I could barely walk, was in extreme pain etc and I had previously been operated on for placenta accreta and yet still had retained product. Unfortunately after the D&C I still had retained, however they kept an eye on it by way of interanl u/s and a hysteroscopy and I agreed to do a 'wait and see' approach and let my body just expel it as I was having no symptoms apart from very heavy bleeding. I was extremely fortunate for it to not have affected my milk suppy though.

    OP, what was your Sonographer and Doctor's suggestion? Did they mention a D&C? Are you on any antibiotics etc?

    One option before going to go D&C is some tablets that they offer to help cramp out 'products of conception'. These didn't work for my retained product, but they must work if they offer them before offering D&C. If they worked it would be better than D&C as it can affect your lining.

    I had limited symptoms and they were not even sure I had retained product as couldn't see on scan. I had 3 x antibiotics...didn't work so after 6 weeks had d&c and now I'm fixed! Symptoms I did have were persistent spotting, smelly discharge. They did find a small piece of tissue when doing d&c so that's why it was happening.

    Good luck'
