Miscarriage - how long does pain/bleeding last?


I recently went for my 12 week scan and was given the bad news that i lost my baby at around 6 weeks. I was devastated, this was my 1st pregnancy and although it was a shock to find out i was pregnant once i came around to the idea i was so excited and was counting down the weeks to my 1st scan.

It was a missed miscarriage as I'd had no bleeding or pains at all.
As i was still carrying the baby i was given the options of waiting to see if it leaves my body naturally, taking the tablet, or having surgery at the hospital. I chose to do it the natural way.
I started bleeding on Wedesnday night and since then the bleeding has got heavier, the blood clots are getting bigger and I have never experience so much pain in my life. I'm getting terrible stomach cramps and back pains and the Ibuprofen i've been taking doesn't seem to be helping much.

I'm just wondering if anyone can give me any advice on how long the bleeding will last and will i continue to get these unbearable pains as long as I'm still bleeding?

i just want this ordeal to be over with so that i can begin to come to terms with it all.

Hun, so sorry x

I'm not entirely certain as every one is different but for me I had 3 days of contractions and bleeding on and off then suddenly my waters broke and I lost lots of clots then bubs (I was 17+5), the minute I had lost him all pain went.

I hope this is all over for you soon hun, thinking of you x

i lost my bean at 8 weeks, i had a MMC.
I took the pills.
After i passed bean and all at hospital i continued to bleed for about 10 days, the first 6 was heavy bleeding.
My pain only really lasted 3 days, and then it was just normal AF crampy feeling.
It is completely different for everyone though.

so sorry for your loss. xxx

I had an MMC that was diagnosed at 12+4. It was horribly hard and I can most certainly understand what your goin though. The day it was diagnosed my doctor asked me to choose between surgery, or naturally, also throwing in that if it went naturally, and ended up being incomplete, I would need an emergency D&C. I chose the surgery, to try and lose any more trauma that could possibly come from this. I bled like a normal period for about a week...and then didnt have a regular MP for another month.. so sorry for your loss dear.

I had a natural miscarriage at 13 weeks, but think I lost earlier. I had cramps/aches and bad back ache for about 8 hours before I actually bled, but then no pain was I actually started loosing a lot of the blood etc.

Im so sorry for your loss, and understand your need to want it over. I just wanted the physical side to stop, and then once it had I had 2 days of being emotionally bad before I could slowly pick myself up again

I am still spotting now, 11 days on, but have no pains at all

Hi hun

I'm so sorry to hear you're going through this. I had a mmc and also chose to do it naturally; I was very lucky though as the pain only lasted about 6 hours in total for me. You know you can take the usual doses of ibuprofen AND paracetemol and codeine at the same time; as they are completely different types of painkillers; I started taking them as soon as I knew the pain was going to get bad and it really did help, it was more of a pressure feeling than actual hurting once the painkillers kicked in. If it lasts more than another day or so I'd seek further medical help because it could be a sign that not everything has come out and your body is struggling to expel it; hence the severe pain.

Soph x

Hi I miscarried on the 01\01\2010 - still experiencing cramping\bleeding. I was told at the hospital to avoid ibuprofen as this can slow the process down,can't remember her exact words. I have been taking paracetamol with codeine which has been doing the trick.xx
