Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Miscarriage is the end of pregnancy before the fetus is able to survive in the outside world, namely when the gestational age has not reached 20 weeks, or the fetal weight is still less than 500 grams. When you have a miscarriage, all the tissue from the uterus will shed and come out of the birth canal as a lot of blood and clots like flesh.
There are miscarriages that occur spontaneously and no longer leave tissue in the uterus, so they do not require further intervention. However, sometimes, there is still a lot of tissue remaining in the uterus so that further treatment is needed, for example through the administration of laxative drugs, or also surgical curettage (dilation and curettage).
Post-spontaneous miscarriage, bleeding will generally stop in less than 2 weeks. As for the bleeding that is still profuse after more than 2 weeks of miscarriage, it can occur due to many factors, including:
There are still tissue remnants in the uterus after a miscarriage
The start of your new menstrual cycle
Drug side effects
Other diseases, such as pelvic inflammatory disease, blood clotting disorders, and so on
How much bleeding is coming out at this time? Is it up to more than 10 pads in a day?
If yes, then you should not delay seeing a gynecologist directly. Through an ultrasound evaluation, doctors can generally determine the best treatment according to the cause of your complaint. If it occurs due to regular menstruation, then of course no special treatment is needed. However, if the cause is different, then the doctor can prescribe several types of drugs or also recommend that you undergo a curettage.
In the meantime, you should use a pad and change it at full time to monitor the amount of bleeding that occurs. Get enough rest, drink plenty of water, and eat a healthy diet. Avoid sexual intercourse that involves vaginal penetration first to prevent bleeding from getting worse. Don't forget to always keep your intimate organs clean.
Hope it helps ya..
