Hi ladies, just an update, I had my D&C today and it went well. When I got there I started to bleed heavy and then my womb started contracting, so I was given Morphine. I was then taken down and it was all over quickly. Have just got home now and I feel so much better. I have not cried today, which is a good sign and I feel at peace as I know my bean is another star in the sky. I had great care and I know now what to expect if I should miscary again. I hope all you ladies in the same position are ok and I know its scary, but we can get through it, sending you all loads of hugs xxxx
Hey all, I am new to this forum. I read somewhere that sharing your experience can make you feel better so here I go. I was diagnosed young with PCOS and have never had a regular cycle and rarely got a period. When my husband and I decided to try for a baby, I started taking provera in order to start my cycle and 50mg of Clomid to ovulate, i had one cycle that seemed to go normal without a resulting pregnancy, but the next cycle I didn't get a period . My doctor started me on provera again and upped my dose to 100mg and i got a positive result! Unfortunately, at 7 weeks the fetus was only about 5.5 weeks and there was no heart beat. After about 3 ultrasounds the sack was abnormal and still no heartbeat. My doctor told me that I was probably going to miscarry anyway, but I had the choice to do it naturally or have a D&C. This was yesterday and I said that I would wait it out and do it naturally. After a day of crying and a morning of clarity, I made an appointment to do in today for the D&C, I realized it was hurting me more WAITING for it to end and still having to feed pregnant when it was clearly suppose to be over. The D&C was performed without anesthesia, since the anesthesiologist only does comes to the office on specific days. But I actually don't like being put under, so it was completely okay with it. There is definite pain during and after, but a lot of the emotion pain seems to be gone. This has to be the definition of a cathartic experience, at least in my case. I am not saying this is the right solution for everyone, but it was definitely the best choice for me. If anyone has any questions about the procedure, I am here for you.
