    Default Support after miscarriage

    Hi guys, I had been trying for 6 months to try and get pregnant. I finally became pregnant with my second child, but miscarried two days ago at 5 weeks and 5 days 😢😢 to say I'm upset is an understatement. I was just wondering how to get through this. How long the hormone level will take to drop so I can ovulate again. How to know the miscarriage was successful and there are no 'bits' left or anything like that. How long it can take to get pregnant. When can I start having sex again, I am still bleeding. And will my blood test next week confirm it all is done and dusted.
    Where did you guys go for support? I've got my husband and family, so I know I will get through, but I need advice on all these things. I went to two doctors and they didn't help or seem to care. Have had no ultrasounds or anything. Is that normal?

    I just wanna know where to go now. I know this baby was only new and tiny, but that doesn't help as I loved it and bonded with it like i would if it was a full sized baby in there 😢 I know I will be ok, I have hope for the things to come, but I know I will not be ok for a while whilst I grieve.

    Thanks everyone.

    Huge hugs. I had a d&c for mine and was told to wait for 1 normal period before trying again.

    Default Support after miscarriage

    Hugs I had two early mc at 5 weeks and was told to wait for one normal period cycle to return to start trying again.. usually at that early you can pass everything naturally and there's no need for a d&c. Find a. New gp they should be able to listen and provide suppprt xxx pm me if you want anytime hope you're looking after yourself

    Hi there,

    Sorry to hear of your loss. I have had two MC this year.
    The first one was natural, I just had bloods after to make sure levels had dropped. After a day of clots and cramps the levels went right down, not to 0 though. I then went for another BT a little while later to ensure levels were down to 0. I conceived the month they were down to 0 and MC again. This time I went to my OB and had a scan where it showed most was out. I needed up bleeding on and off which meant I had a d&c.
    I am now 13 weeks pregnant. We conceived a few months after D&C. I didn't fall the first month, had a chem the second then wanted a month off trying but ended up pregnant lol.
    This time I am on progesterone and aspirin daily and that seems to have worked.
    I wish you all the best and hope the next Bub is sticky

    Hi Jane, I'm so so sorry you are going through this, it's not fun at all
    May I ask how you know you M/C? Was it during a scan that there was no heartbeat? If so, it's really up to the Dr how they want to proceed. I'm a little peeved for you that the Dr was no help! They should have at least referred you on to the Early pregnancy assessment unit of a local hospital or arranged a follow up scan to see if there is any "remaining product", however at almost 6 weeks I doubt there would be, but I'd have no clue!!
    I've had quite a few miscarriages at around that time and all they do is check my hcg once a week to make sure the levels are going down. Once they are at 0 you should be able to try again, many women even conceive immediately after a miscarriage!
