Has anyone been able to have surgical management recently? I've been diagnosed with a missed miscarriage and I've got my appointment to discuss my options tomorrow. I'd really like to have surgical management (or MVA), but I'm worried I won't be allowed because of covid. Can anyone share their recent experience?

I had MVA (2 weeks ago), think that’s the preferred surgical management at the moment because of COVID X

Agree it was the only surgical option available to me

At st marys, London they were offering d&c as well. It was entirely my choice

In Scotland it was only MVA

Just in case anyone else is in the same situation, at my appt yesterday (24 Sep) I was offered medical management, MVA or surgical management under general anaesthetic. Surgical management was only available next Tuesday (5 days away) so I went for MVA, which they did yesterday afternoon

The MVA wasn't the most fun I've had in my life, but it wasn't terrible either, and it's such a relief to know it's all (finally) over.
