i have read conflicting advice over whether its safe or not to have a hot bath during a miscarriage - i only started cramping and bleeding on tues night (the bleeding is fairly light at the moment). i am scheduled for an ERPC at the beginning of next week. stuff that i have read suggests risk of infection. my stomach has been cramping all day and a hot bath is very appealing - but now im a little concerned as to whether i should? any thoughts on this from anyone? x

Royal Free Hampstead say bath and showers yes, swimming not until it's over.

Sorry for your loss.

I did when the cramping was bad. If you are worried about infection risk, you could always shower thoroughly first?
