D&C and advice
Nov 2, 2007

I recently found out that I am miscarrying (at 7 weeks). I found out this morning I need to schedule a D&C - the sac is still there and the lining is too thick. Does anyone have any advice - is the procedure painful? I cannot take any time off from work - will I be able to go right to work afterwards?
And also, how long will it be before I should expect a period after? Is it 4 weeks afterwards?

With a miscarriage, is it most likely that this is going to happen again if I am able to get pregnant again? I really don't know if I can handle going through months of fertility treatment to have this happen again.

I am so sorry that you have been through this as well!!! It's an awful thing to have to deal with!!

My regular OBGYN called me back today and told me to come right in. She took a quick look and took blood. No ultrasound - I don't think she does them in her office (is that weird??). She called my fertility clinic and yelled at them for (1) sending me back to her when they should be able to get someone in for a d&c and (2)making me wait so long. She seems to think that since I bled so much that I have passed everything on my own. After she yelled at the fertility clinic, they called me and told me to come in tomorrow for an ultrasound. I'm hoping that they'll continue to follow me, though, because I'm scared there will still be tissue there and they'll tell me to wait, and then in a month I'll still need the D&C. So frustrating!!!

Thanks so much for the advice!
