I did when the cramping was bad. If you are worried about infection risk, you could always shower thoroughly first?

Royal Free Hampstead say bath and showers yes, swimming not until it's over.

Sorry for your loss.

i have read conflicting advice over whether its safe or not to have a hot bath during a miscarriage - i only started cramping and bleeding on tues night (the bleeding is fairly light at the moment). i am scheduled for an ERPC at the beginning of next week. stuff that i have read suggests risk of infection. my stomach has been cramping all day and a hot bath is very appealing - but now im a little concerned as to whether i should? any thoughts on this from anyone? x
