Chances are I will be undergoing medical management this weekend. I had a scan last week which showed the pregnancy sac was still there. I have had bleeding but not enough IMO to expel (sorry - harsh word) it completely. SO please can someone tell me about it? What happens, how long does it take and does it usually work? How long afterwards is it usual to have a period and when can you start TTC? Do you have to wait for one period or more or can you start TTC straightaway after medical management? Any advice/info would be gratefully received!!
Shit, have just the other thread and am so worried I don't 'pass' everything as then I will have to have the ERPC anyway. And I was warned against having a third one. It's all so bloody awful and lengthy!! I wish I could have a natural m/c. This is my thirs and none of them have been.
The nurse/midwife in the EPAU said it could lead to scarring of the womb which could then make it difficult for an egg/s to implant. Before I heard that I had opted for an ERPC. This medical management sounds so tedious, lengthy and might not even work!! Does anyone know anyone who has had three or more ERPCs? This might be another thread!!
My hospital only offers ERPC Sometimes they don't get everything out with one ERPC so you could have 2 for one mc While I can appreciate wanting to avoid surgery I would never go the natural route again myself as I lost so much blood
HI, i went through medical management yesterday after my 2nd missed miscarriage, I expected much worse than I went through. At 11.20 I was given my first 4 tablets they started to work within approx 2hrs, I had cramping pains which were like a very bad period pain, I also had heavy bleeding but no tissue passed until after my second dose of tablets around 4pm, at 5.30 I had a lot of tissue being passed and that was very painful and then it was over, it was extremely emotional as you can expect but with my partners support and with the care and help of the nurses on hand it made the experience much easier to deal with. With my 1st MMC I opted for the ERPC but I had a terrible hospital (different to the 2nd MMC)experience so this is what put me off opting for this again and I am pleased I didnt. With the 1st not only did i have horrendous bleeding and pains for 4 weeks after dut to an undetected infection, I also received terrible treatment from the hospital I went to, there was blood on the floor in my room, the nurses were uncaring and the doctors tried to cancel my OP after 9hrs of waiting in a cold room. Im am biased but definitely prefered the erpc.
