Just had a m/c at 5 weeks - do I need to see Dr or can I just carry on as normal and start ttc again?

As long as you start getting negative pregnancy test results, you're probably fine.

(If you keep getting positive pregnancy test results (say, two weeks from now), then you may have a bit of retained tissue, and will need a D+C. I think this is rare, though.)

I would see your doctor as a matter of course, it will put your mind to rest in the long run.

i would see your gp just so its logged on your medical records in case there needs to be a follow up from it in the future.

sorry for your loss, i started ttc straight away after mine. i know they say leave it for a bit but we decided to let nature decide.

I miscarried at 9 weeks (found out at the 12 week scan) I was advised to leave it at least a month to have one proper period again, before trying. ( I think that is mainly to be sure of dates for the next one though)

Good Luck
