I am currently going through a natural miscarriage at 5 weeks. I was wondering if anyone else has had the same experience. How long is this going to last? How long will it take to pass?
I know this is a rare occurrence. I was not even aware I was pregnant.

@CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon: I’m just 5 weeks out from my natural MC. It took my body from time I started spotting to passing it about 12 hours. And then bled and cramped for another 2-3 days. I was also almost 9 weeks

@CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon: the same thing happened to me last year but with the Mirena. The progesterone pushed the pregnancy foward and I personally had a long hull with hormonal recovery. It was emotionally a hard time for me, despite the fact that we were avoiding pregnancy. Hopefully since the copper IUD is hormone free, your recovery will be easier. I had to get some blood work done to make sure that my HCG levels tapered off correctly. Which takes longer for some people then others. Finding a birth control I was happy with after was difficult because before the pregnancy I was truly happy with my mirena and the lack of side effects. How are you feeling about the whole thing?

If you have an IUD – I am sure you weren’t anticipating on getting pregnant? (Not that you wanted a miscarriage of course). What has your doctor advised you abou tthe IUD?

I’d be worried that you’re going to expel the IUD with the miscarriage (although if it didn’t work for you, it may need to come out anyway). Did your doctor ever visualize proper placement of the IUD with an ultrasound?

@graygodess20: I’m very sorry for your loss. Thank you for your reply.
The pain is completely unbearable. I started cramping two days ago and I’m in full cramping/contractions as of today. Interesting enough, it seems to be more in my lower back. When I gave birth five years ago (the baby was lost full-term due to complications), I only had back labor.
@Lara_Ashley: I’ve had the copper IUD for about for years now, and I do believe it is a godsend. I really wasn’t aware that anything like this could happen. I wasn’t keeping track of my cycle, because I thought I had no worry. I guess I’m lucky it is not en ectopic pregnancy, but the doctor didn’t seem to answer my questions about how it was possible the fertilized egg could implant? These other women are bringing up about having to remove it? Do you still have yours in place?
I’m very “odd” emotionally right now. I have lost a child, and had the IUD placed when I had an abortion. I guess you can say I’m “used” to losing children. We have no plans to have children, and I don’t doubt if this was a viable pregnancy that we would have terminated it. My FI is being amazing. He knows I’m putting on a good face about it all, but can tell I’m in pain and upset. It is a hard time. I’m full swing in school, I’m getting married in less than two months, and it seems this is just icing. It is hard to accept losing something you never wanted in the first place…as selfish as I feel that sounds.
@habibti: I edited my post because it didn’t make sense. I’m tired and wrote it on my phone. I meant to express that we have no desire to have children. The IUD can remain in place.
@cmbr: My IUD is properly placed. I have had it for four years with no complications. The doctor did not say it was necessary to remove the IUD at this point in time.

@CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon: Don’t feel selfish feeling that way! I bawled my eyes out even though I was techniquely preventing pregnancy. It was like mourning something I only had for a brief moment. Even though I was seeing a positive pregnancy test I knew that the odds of it being a normal pregnancy were virtually nill. It was an overwhelming feeling. Mine was removed ASAP. My OB said that the odds are extremely low of uterine pregnancy but possible. He too was fearful of an ectopic, because of that he performed a procedure afterwards that injected radio oqaue dye into my uterus and through my fallopian tubes to ensure there were no blockages because I do desire pregnancy in the future. He said he did not have a good explination as to why it happened because prior to removal I had a transvaginal ultrasound done to ensure it was in proper placement and it was. I am glad I saw your post because it is such a rare thing that I am glad I can share my experience with someone.

@CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon: yep, for me the pain was the most painful thing my body has EVER gone through, but once the fetus is passed the cramps started to get duller and duller…
