    I'm so sorry for your loss

    I had to wait 8 days between finding out I lost bub to having a d&c and that wait was unbearably long. I don't know if I could have then went through the physical side of a miscarriage.
    If you're unsure, maybe you could ask to have the d&c booked for 'x' date and, if nothing happens beforehand', go ahead with it.

    So sorry for your loss. It is a tough and personal decision. If you opt for the D&C ensure it is done under ultrasound guidance or hysteroscopy to minimise the risk of scarring.

    I acquired severe scarring (Ashermans syndrome) after 2 unguided D&C's for miscarriages, both at around 8 weeks. I would've been a good candidate for medical management (misoprostol/RU486 tablets) but unfortunately this option wasn't offered to me but may be available to you if you ask.

    All the best xx
