Long term pain after miscarriage. Please help!(7 Posts)
Hi there and thanks for reading. I miscarried on May 25th measuring 9wks 2 at my 12 week scan and had miso at the hospital. This was my first pregnancy. Ever since I've been clotting (now like light brown jelly), had sharp shooting pains up inside me and lower back pain all on the right side. Returned to Epu on 17th June who scanned and said definately no pregnancy product remained but my uterine lining was still thick. Dr recommended monitoring for 2-3 weeks for a period, which arrived June 25th and was normal 5days and not heavy. As soon as my period stopped these stabbing pains resumed. They happen all times of day and night, whether standing, sitting or lying and make me bear down for the 30 secs or so they last. I have been getting migraines as well which I've never had before. Went back to docs again who is referring me back to gynae but this could take a couple of weeks. In the meantime can anyone shed light on this? My husband is desperate to start trying again and I'm no spring chicken. Would hate to fall pregnant again if there is a problem that needs sorting. Thanks x
Hmm im sorry to hear about this its really devasting. Thinking of you and your family well i had quite alot of pains and i also started getting migraines everyday after my miscarriage which i miscarriaged last month at 19weeks+1. Ever since then i had a migraine everyday 5/6pm onwards and it wouldnt go.. Have you been checked for infection by any chance? Just to be sure as you never know. With me i didnt have any symptoms but i just wanted to know before i started to TTC again. I recently had a internal examination down below. They found out i had an infection caused by STREP B. Which can be very serious during birth so they need to keep a close eye on me during next time. Hope all goes well x
Thank you Sophie. I'm sorry for your sad loss. Doctor has taken bloods to test for some things. Infection didn't even crop up during my appointment. I'll see how I get on and go back if I'm unwell while waiting for the hospital appointment. Fingers crossed we both get lucky soon.
Yeah same with me they took so many around 10 along with the placenta and umbilical cord for signs of any problems. Need to wait until my 12 week hospital appointment for the results im feeling really scared though the doctor didnt once mention an infection when i asked about it but i asked if i could have a swab done incase and im glad i hadit done because i now know that i've got something which can harm baby next time and they can prevent it!

Just thought I'd update in case anyone suffers the same and they happen across this thread and it helps them. Had a scan yesterday and the sonographer found the area the last scan showed as thick and she said it was very thick but only in one spot. Exploratory operation today showed retained placental tissues that had become infected and quite a bit of small amounts of retained pregnancy remnants that didn't show up on the scan but they were baffled that I should have been more Ill than I was with fevers, sickness etc hence it not being picked up on. I've ended up having a vacuum which I really wish I'd just picked now when I had the option over misoprostol. Sophie I really hope you're OK and things are well with you. Thank you for taking the time to chat to me in what were quite dark and scary times x
Hi again hope everything is well for you. So was it leftover tissues? And have the pains went away for you now? Im glad that you've had it all sorted because i know it would have been so stressful for you to find out what it could be. No problem, i know its a sad time, me and hubby recently just started ttc again, ive already had my first period so things are back to normal just want to be pregnant. I hope that soon me and you soon will be pregnant also!! X
Yes leftover "conception product" the doctors called it. How clinical, but 8 weeks nearly since my medically managed miscarriage and over 11 weeks since the baby stopped growing. It's so hard to have this still going on. I felt back to square one emotionally yesterday when they said there was still some of my pregnancy inside me. Because I had the vacuum this morning my tummy is a bit crampy but the stabbing pain hasn't happened and my back ache is gone thank goodness. I really hope and pray life is good to you are soon a proud mummy to a healthy baby. Good luck in your trying.
