I had a D&C on 11th November 2010 after having a missed miscarriage at 7 weeks. The operation went well and i was back to work the next day. However the bleeding then started and has not stopped since. I informed my GP on the 13th Dec 2010 and they have arranged a scan for 19th Jan 2011. I went to the GP again 2 days ago as i started to get pains and i was concerned about the bleeding, GP said that we have to wait for the scan. The past 2 days i have been in very bad pain, bleeding constantly and passing unusually shaped large clots (last night i passed a solid hard ball) really want to get back to normal and try our second ICSI attempt. i have considered going to A&E as the pain has been so bad but dont want to waste anyones time, do you have any advice? Thnak you.
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Was an ultrasound scan done after D&C to confirm that there were no retained products left behind? The continued bleeding with clots and cramps suggest possibility of retained products of conception still being inside. You will need to have an ultrasound scan and blood work-up done to see what is going on. Try to visit an urgent care center and see if you can consult a gynecologist (along with examination, ultrasound scan done). You will also need prescription for antispasmodics to help with pain control.
