I am so sorry this happened to you. after my missed miscarriage my OB would only let me wait. 5 more days to see if it would pass naturally. If not, she insisted on a d and c to get everything out and clean/clear.

Oh my goodness I’m so sorry you went through that.  My sister had a MC much earlier than 11 weeks – around 4 weeks and yes her doctor absolutely made sure there was nothing left and didn’t need a D&C.

I have never heard of a doctor letting a miscarriage go on this long!

@jrtink:   I would make an appt with another OB (and do some research to find a good one) and have an exam to make sure everything is OK. Be sure to tell the new OB the entire story so they know what and why they are giving you an exam.

I am so sorry you went through that! 🙁 Definitely find a new OB, and like ThreeMeers said, go in just to make sure everything is okay and that there isn’t lasting damage. I hope there is nothing lasting, I know that usually if things dont pass with meds they will do a D&C, but I guess because you passed some clots they thought it was all out? I’m not sure what is the usual way of checking but you would think they could at least do an ultrasound or something to make sure it is all out.

I am SO sorry you have to deal with this utterly horrible care. For my m/c, I was given two weeks MAX to wait to see if I m/c naturally. When that didn’t happen, I had two options: medicine (misoprostol) or d & e (dilation and evacuation via a small vac type thing). I chose medicine. I waw given another two weeks after that to let my body do what it had to do, then I was told to come in for a scan to be SURE all had cleared out. If it didn’t at that time, I would need a d & e after all.

One of the major signs of remaining tissue is a constant bleed, and they want that tissue OUT because it can get infected and keep your cycle from regulating, since your body I think needs to be at a 7 (It’s been awhile, so I might be wrong) in order to ovulate. The care (or lack thereof) you received was appalling. Simply appalling. Find a new OB, get a scan done and see if you will need a d & e. They may prescribe you some antibiotics, in case you got an infection.

@jrtink:  I am so sorry! How awful! It does sound negligent. I am terrified of miscarriage so I can only imagine the pain and fear you are going through. I’m glad you’re getting the care you need to let your body fully recover.
