It's a personal decision for everyone. Only you will know what's best for you.

I chose to have a DNC, for my own reasons. I also had a missed miscarriage. The doctor told me that it could be 2 to 4 weeks before my body realized it and started to miscarry. I couldn't handle that. The moment I knew I no longer had a viable fetus, I wanted to end my emotional suffereing and give my body the quickest chance to heal so that we could try again ASAP. I had a DNC the next day. The moment they woke me after the surgery, I bawled like a baby. I had very little pain, felt like I had all the closure I needed. They gave me painkillers that I used only on the first day. I bled off and on for ten days, was back at work and in school two days after the DNC. Two days after the DNC all pregnancy symptons were gone. 28 days after the DNC I got my period.

There are risks associated with a DNC as well, and it costs money. I never want to do it again. But between waiting it out and having a DNC, I thought a DNC looked like the less tramautic option. I wouldn't want to spend four weeks mourning my dead baby and wondering when it would come out.

I've heard horrible stories about natural miscarriages, but my sister-in-law went through one without too much trouble. they opted for it b/c they had no insurance. it took her two weeks to miscarry and she bled for two weeks after but only the first 24 hours were so bad.

Sorry you've had to go through this. I know my husband was my comfort and my strength. He cried as much as I did and missed school and work so he coudl be there with me.
i've been through a missed miscarraige. Found out that my baby died when I had 11 weeks. that was last january. had no signs of any blood and pregnancy just kept on going....i kept on growing etc etc.
was admitted to hospital on friday the 13th of january so doc could help me miscarraige as i couldnt wait for it to happen on its own due to the chance of having an internal infection or trombosi.
so doc gave me three pills right into my vagina and after a an hour or so i started bleeding (they made me miscarriage)...was bleeding and in pain as if giving birth for 6 hours then they took me for an ERPC to remove everything and test all they removed.
was a bit in pain two days after coz i was getting blood cloths...but then was ok for the rest of the bleeding days.
had my period for almost 20 days but then all was back to normal and the two periods after got back to their normal routine of 28 day cycle etc.

got pregnant again and since last fri i had 6 weeks but things turned out bad once more :-(
this time i dont really know what's going on!!
