Miscarriage

Hello everyone!  I haven't been on the computer much because I had a miscarriage last week and it was very painful but through it all I have been having unprotected sex and now I feel very tire and just can't catch up on my sleep and I don't know what to do because I have been taking vitamins so that I won't become anemic but I never felt so tire before.  Yes I am trying to get pregnant again but I am also experiencing headaches do you think I should go to the doctor to see if my iron is low because I just had a miscarriage?   Thank you for everyone insight.

Hi!
I always ask my patients to come in for a check up about 2 weeks after a miscarriage.
I just want to be sure that all of the pregnancy tissue was expelled, and there is no evidence of infection.  Anemia can cause head aches, so you might benefit from some iron.  My personal favorite brand is SlowFe--one to three times per day as tolerated.  If you are going to try again, you should also continue with your prenatal vitamins. Also, drink lots of fluids!
I'm sorry you had the miscarriage, I hope things happen again soon, and go better next time around!
Good luck!
Dr B

Thanks so much for sharing your story with me.  It is encouraging to know good things follow the bad ones.  We have an appointment with the RE on March 22 so we may take a more aggressive approach.  I am hoping and praying that we get another BFP soon.  Congrats on your little sticky bean.  Keep me posted on your progress, your story makes me happy and hopeful!

I too had a miscarriage recently.  I am so upset about it.  I had a Tubal Reveral in August 2009 and we didn't get the BFP until February 12, 2010.  We were so excited, I guess we should have kept our emotions in check.  I M/C on February 21, 2010.  I really want to start trying again right away.  I am fearful though because I have read that the uterus lining can be weak after a M/C so it is better to wait.  I just don't think I can.  I will be 36 in three weeks and I swear I can hear the tick tick tick in my ear.  What if that was our only BFP and we never see another one.  I have been ok emotionally the past couple of days but today I can't get it together.  I am just so consumed with sadness.  I can't help but to feel like the only thing that will make me feel better is to get pregnant again right away.  Who knows.  This is just so much harder than I ever imagined.

I am soo sorry to hear about you miscarriage.  I had a miscarriage this past summer, i found out i was pregnant on May of 2009 and miscarried on July 7, 2009.  It's a very devestating experience i know exactly how you feel.   I felt soo sad, confused, and angry all at the same time.  I didn't want to get pregnant again out of fear that it might happen again than on Nov. 1 2009 i found out i was pregnant again, i am now 21 weeks into my pregnancy.  I guess what i'm trying to say is even though i know that a miscarriage is a very devestating experience full of mixed emotions, don't give up if becoming a mother is something you desire the most than don't give up unless it affects your health and  told otherwise by a doctor.

When I miscarried I didn't start feeling better till about 3 weeks after, then at about 4 weeks after was when I started to not feel SO tired all the time.  

If your really concerned, most dr's offices have a number you can call for questions, then they have a nurse for your dr call you back.

Thank you for your comment.  I know how you feel because I thought I was ok but all of a sudden I felt real sadness just the other day and I just can't get out of it.  My boyfriend and I is trying again but I am just scare because I don't want another miscarriage because this was my 5th one and as time goes by it gets harder because I am going to be 42 years old this year.  My odds are certainly against me but I just want one more child because my boyfriend of 7 years does not have one.  
But thanks again.

A miscarriage can vary because it depends on how far long you were because I was 6 weeks I bled for 7 days.  The physical part is gone but the emotional part is still there.  It is normal to feel frustrated because I just wanted the bleeding to stop but maybe you should see your doctor and they might can give you a D&C so it won't go on any longer because I know it can be annoying.

I too suffered a loss and understand the need to try again. I found out we were miscarrying at 6 wk 4 days on Feb 19th. On Feb 25th I had the d&c done to finalize everything. I figured the sooner I stopped bleeding, the sooner we could try again. I met with my dr on Mar 8th and she gave us the ok to start trying. She said ordinarly they do recommend waiting for 1 cycle but health wise it is not necessary. It is for the purpose of timing your new pregnancy. Anyhow.....best wishes to u all and I hope to respond in the near future with good news.
