Post-Miscarriage Health Care?
Good Morning Doctor,
Hello Mrs. Murniyati,
It is better if you see a gynecologist regarding the symptoms you are experiencing. After a miscarriage, especially if bleeding still occurs, it is important to get checked. The obstetrician will perform an ultrasound examination to determine whether or not there is any remaining tissue and whether uterine contractions are going well. The remaining tissue in the uterus can cause persistent bleeding that can be dangerous. If there is, the doctor can provide drugs to help with uterine contractions, or perform curettage.
If the remaining tissue is completely removed, bleeding may still occur for about 1-2 weeks. Your pregnancy test will probably still be positive and it will stay that way for a few weeks because it will take time for the hormones to get back to normal. Your menstrual cycle can come sooner or later than you should. Home care that can be done (after checking with a gynecologist) is to use sanitary napkins to monitor bleeding, get adequate rest, control stress, eat healthy, balanced nutrition.

Breast pain can occur due to hormonal influences. If there are no other complaints you don't have to worry about, they usually go away on their own. If accompanied by lumps, fever or other symptoms, you should consult a doctor.
A miscarriage is certainly a sad occurrence, but it's best to keep a positive mind and don't let yourself be overwhelmed by grief for too long. Most of the miscarriages are inevitable and there is nothing to blame. Positive thinking will help you determine your next steps.
Hopefully this is useful,
