Customer Question
Hi I had a missed miscarriage...
Hi
I had a missed miscarriage that i found out about on the 2nd June. on the 15th June i had a D&C. I went into hospital a week after due to cramping and clots and they said I had retained products (some of which were removed during the internal obs) The next day i had a scan which showed more retained products so was given misoprostol. this worked the same day and some tissue was released. Bleeding tapered off until 2 days later when backache, contractions, heavy bleeding started again. This resulted in more retained products being released. It seems to have all stopped now but when I go to change my pad there is a sweet smell could this indicate infection?

Hello,
There is a possibility of infection, and since you have had 'instruments' placed in your uterus this many times - I would recommend a course of antibiotics, specifically Doxycycline 100mg per twice a day for 10 days.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
