I know you're not Drs but I'd like advice before jumping the gun and phoning nhs. I am 3 days post termination, I chose the tablets and discharge home option. But in the last hour I have lost 12 clots, some big enough to fit in my hand. I am soaking through underwear and scared to get off the toilet as it's just flowing out. Does this sound relatively normal?
I feel really weak, shaky and frankly fecking terrified.

I'm not surprised you're terrified. I never had the tablets so I don't know if it's normal, but 111 might be an idea to talk you through what's happening? Take care x

No that doesn’t sound normal. I had a miscarriage at 10 weeks which went a similar way and t was incredibly serious, I needed a large blood transfusion and a hospital stay afterwards. Do call and say how much blood you’re losing. I too couldn’t get off the loo and was soaking through a pad in minutes

I have had two medically managed missed miscarriages, which is the same medication and process.

The guidance in the booklet I was given says to call for advice if;

• heavy bleeding that soaks through 2 sanitary pads an hour, for 2 hours or more in a row
• abdominal pain or discomfort that is not helped by medication, rest, a hot water bottle, or a heating pad
• a fever of 38°C or higher
• an unpleasant-smelling discharge from your vagina
• signs that you are still pregnant
• no bleeding 24 hours after using misoprostol

Of any of those apply, I'd call 111.

Im sorry you're having a bad night OP and hope you either get some help or some relief soon.

I'm on the phone to nhs now, I put a fresh pad on after making this post and it's soaked through with clots sad
Thank you

I’d you are unsure call 111, paramedics came to access me during a miscarriage, I passed out and woke up on bloods and a drip, they were amazing and 12 hours later I was home

Good luck.
It sounds like you need to see a doctor. I hope you got some help from 111.
Is someone with you?

gkite2020 Tue 19-Feb-19 03:30:05

Just had a big clot, almost the size of a pad.
Nhs24 want me to go to a&e but I'm in no fit state

Justagirlwholovesaboy Tue 19-Feb-19 03:33:09

That’s why they have paramedics to come out and access you

gkite2020 Tue 19-Feb-19 03:33:54

They didn't mention that justagirl, just said make my way to a&e as soon as I can

Justagirlwholovesaboy Tue 19-Feb-19 03:36:59

After a missed miscarriage I was given a card with numbers to call. If you feel you are dizzy of weak call thrm

Call an ambulance, it's not a waste of their time to get you safely to hospital in your condition.

Sleepthiefismyfavourite Tue 19-Feb-19 03:43:47

Sounds like you are haemorrhaging, I had the same happen to me. If you cant get yourself there, phone an ambulance.It's really scary, sending you love

Sleepthiefismyfavourite Tue 19-Feb-19 03:44:19

*really scary

Mumatoo Tue 19-Feb-19 04:28:21

As the others have said definitely call an ambulance. They will take care of you. You need this.

NHSNurse1 Tue 19-Feb-19 04:31:36

Agree that is much more bleeding than is normal. Do you ha e someone to take you to A&E? You need a scan straight away.

Desmondo2016 Tue 19-Feb-19 04:33:19

I think you need to call an ambulance. Take care and update us when you're out the other side.

lostfrequencies Tue 19-Feb-19 05:01:35

thanks how scary for you. Sending you love, I hope you get seen to soon x

Adamcgrathagain Tue 19-Feb-19 05:03:35

Hope you’re at A and E now receiving the care you need. All best wishes for recovering quickly and smoothly.

thedogattacksthetissuebox Tue 19-Feb-19 05:05:28

I've had this, call an ambulance. You're haemorrhaging. It's terrifying I know, I hope you're getting help now op

MonsterKidz Tue 19-Feb-19 05:13:31

Hope you’re ok OP.
I’m so sorry this happened. You must have been terrified.
Let us know you are ok when you are able.

gkite2020 Tue 19-Feb-19 14:34:20

Thank you everyone, I am still in hospital. I've had about 60ml of products removed from me, waiting on a scan hopefully won't be long.
Thank you for advising me to get myself seen, genuinely. Had I not posted I'd have just carried on and done nothing blush thank you all xx

Mumatoo Tue 19-Feb-19 14:51:20

Very glad you’re doing better.

JRMisOdious Tue 19-Feb-19 14:58:31

Hope they get you better soon 💐 can anyone be at home with you when you’re discharged?

gkite2020 Wed 20-Feb-19 04:52:06

I have my partner at home but he needs to go back to work. We also have 3 young children, another reason for the termination in the first place.
The bleeding has subsided but I've woken up in tremendous pain sad all over my hips, a constant aching sharp pain. My daughter's 2nd birthday this weekend so I just wanna be better for her
