Hi everyone, I had a MMC at 7+3 but found out at my 8+3 scan. I wanted the removal process to happen naturally and luckily it pretty much happened straight away. I’m still bleeding and cramping a little bit and it’s been 7 days. How long does the bleeding last? And how long did it take to get a negative pregnancy test?

@Longbarn5 I originally asked to do it naturally but then decided to go down the surgical route as I heard that it’s common to have surgery later on to make sure everything is clear. But when I went for my check up I found out that I passed everything naturally and have a few blood clots remaining. So far I’ve been bleeding for 9 days but the bleeding now is very very light so I’m hoping I can test next week to check that I’m negative. Has your cycle gone back to normal? Did it take long to receive your cycle?
@Jadex92x I’m sorry for your loss, I feel as though nothing prepares you for the news that you’ve had a MC. I went in randomly as I saw some pink discharge and wanted to get it checked out to be on the safe side. That’s how I found out the news, and the bleeding started that night. I found out on the 8th, passed the sac on the 12th but now I think the bleeding is coming to an end. I’m hoping to get the negative next week so we can try again. Kind of bittersweet isn’t it?

Hi, so sorry. For me it was a really long process unfortunately. It took 2 attempts with the medication to no avail and nearly 2 months of bleeding with one emergency a&e trip. I'm sorry I know it's not what you want to hear and it definitely does not happen like that for everyone. Have you passed the sac do you think?

Hi @Rainbowpeanut02, I had a MMC 6 weeks ago and medical management 5 weeks ago. I’m still testing very, very faintly positive and my EPU had me back in last week to see why. I do unfortunately have a tiny bit of retained tissue which I know means it may be a while until I test negative and can try again. I was so upset when I found out - I had been consoling myself with the idea I could try again quickly as I’m desperate to be pregnant again, and now I will have to wait a bit longer. But the last few days I have come to think that actually maybe I need this time to process things a bit, and get in a better headspace for trying again, whenever that will be. So I wanted to share this in case it helps, if you don’t get your negative as fast as you hope. But I very much hope that you do!
