Started natural m/c...how much blood is too much to lose?


Sorry if this is TMI, but I just began a natural m/c. I am bleeding extremely heavily and passing huge clots almost every 10 minutes. I am scared about how much blood I'm losing. Does anyone know whats normal? If you've had a natural m/c how long does the heavy bleeding / passing clots last for? Is there a rule for how much blood you lose in an hour (i.e - soaking thru one pad in under an hour?)

i've been told that your shouldn't be filling a pad in an hour, if you are i recommend heading off to either the hospital or the doctors.

sending you big hope your ok.

hi glowbabe,

I think everyone is diferent; if you feel like you need help, go to a+e and ask for help immediately - and definitely see your gp asap no matter if you feel 'ok' xxx

i dont know how far along you were... i was @ 10 weeks, m/c monday night at home, i was on the loo for about 3 hours passing clots and bleeding a *lot*; i wasn't dizzy or in excessive pain and i felt 'ok otherwise' - and i didnt read about the pad-per-hour rule until mid mornig yesterday (tues), after I'd visited my gp, when there were no more clots and pad lasted about 2 to 3 hours. I'm still aching/cramping now with a lessening red bleed but no big clots, if cramps /red continue to friday Im going to the gp again.
edit @19:00, and now passing 'meaty' lumps as thick as my thumb, what i think to be the placenta, cramps are worse but since there is a reason am not panicking yet x

hoping for the best for you xxx

I felt the same same, esp as I have never had heavy periods so it was terrifying for me. I found myself practically glued to the toilet all night rather than just relying on a pad and losing so much blood and big lumps of dark coloured tissue. I am sure if I had passed that onto a pad and not in the toilet I would have broken the 1 pad in an hour rule a thousand times over. Make sure you take Iron tablets as I felt very weak after due to the loss and they sort you out very quickly.
I am ok now, 2 weeks later so I guess that it is normal. IF it lasts several days after it has happened then I would be worrying.

I was told more than a pad an hour is too much and to go to A&E if that happened. Hope you feel better soon x

I called numerous doctors and spoke to many friends. I was told that if you go through pads like crazy you should see a doctor. If your still losing alot of clots and blood and your running any kind of fever you may be setting up an infection which can be very dangerous. You need to see a doctor. They may have to do a DNC. If your soking through a pad in under an hour I would go as soon as possible. Im so sorry. I know how you feel.

At the hospital they told me that if you go through a pad in less than 2 hours you are losing too much and at risk of haemorrhage.

I think you should maybe go and get it checked out, if only for peace of mind. As if going through this is not heartbreaking enough, you have to worry about all this too I know for me I didn't bleed alot at all, but I never have heavy periods either...do you usually have heavy periods? As I have heard people who do tend to bleed more during a miscarriage.

Really hope it sorts itself out soon..Take Care x

I think everyone pretty much covered it, just wondering how you are doing?
