Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
Miscarriage / abortion is the release / delivery of the fetus, placenta, amniotic fluid, and other uterine contents from the uterine wall when gestational age is less than 20 weeks.
Symptoms of a miscarriage are abdominal pain that is heavier than usual, bleeding out of the birth canal, and when it reaches the final stage it can be followed by expulsion of the fetus and other contents of the uterus.
Risk factors for miscarriage are:
Maternal age at pregnancy. The older a person is when pregnant, the greater the risk of pregnancy including miscarriage
Pregnancy conditions / problems such as sac pregnancy without a fetus (Blighted Ovum), ectopic pregnancy, molar pregnancy, etc.
Problems with the uterus that cause poor adhesion of the baby to the uterus
A weak cervix
Infections during pregnancy, such as TORCH infection, gonorrea bacteria, chlamydia, etc.
Chronic diseases of the mother, such as high blood pressure, sugar, hyperthyroidism, etc.
Effects of smoking, drinking alcohol, certain drugs, illegal drugs, etc.
The condition of a miscarriage should be confirmed in advance by seeing a gynecologist. If there is a miscarriage, and the contents of the uterus are not clean, removal of the fetus must be done through medical action (curettage or oxytocin induction according to fetal age) in a sterile manner. Because if the uterus is not clean, then this has the potential to cause harm to the mother, namely blood clotting disorders.
If the uterus is completely clean, it is possible that the doctor will not take any more action to remove the uterine contents, but this must still be checked to make sure and maybe even in this condition post-miscarriage monitoring still needs to be done by a doctor.
In your case, you mentioned that there is blood flow, if there is a miscarriage, it is feared that this indicates your uterus is not completely clean. In addition, you also mentioned that there is vaginal discharge, it is feared that it indicates an infected miscarriage (septic abortion) and if not treated this can endanger you.
For that, as we have said above, it is better not to delay seeing a gynecologist, to ascertain whether a miscarriage has occurred and to determine the condition of the miscarriage to determine the action taken by the doctor.
Meanwhile, if there has been a miscarriage with / without a curette, the following should be done:
Get enough rest for at least 3 days after the curette to restore your condition and health after a miscarriage
Eat nutritious foods, especially those high in iron after curettage
Avoid having sex about 1-2 months after miscarriage or as directed by your doctor
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and is useful :)
