Too small for erpc?

I have had a mmc confirmed this week. I would be 11 weeks now but it stopped developing at about 6 weeks. There was hardly anything in the sac.

The hospital said they couldn't offer erpc because it was too small. To be honest, I was hoping for surgical management because the waiting between scans has been awful.

Does anyone know why they wouldn't offer it? Is it just that they physically can't do it if that small or could it just be that they have a policy not to offer it because it's the NHS and they are under-resourced? I'm only wondering because I actually have private insurance which would cover the procedure and am trying to consider all my options.
I still have no pain or bleeding.
Thanks.

I had an erpc at 11 weeks when there was no embryo visible in the sac any more. Of course they could offer it. Medical management also possible (pills to induce miscarriage) however i have had both and for me, surgical was much better. If you can get it done on your insurance i would do. The waiting is awful and for me, being able to get it over with was so important.
sorry for your loss
