I need some help. How long is too long to not bleed and expel the tissue during a miscarriage? My baby stopped developing at six weeks. I would be 11 weeks now. I have some cramping and light bleeding but other than that, nothing. My insurance does not cover d&c. My doctor said to wait it out but I'm concerned its taking too long. Any advice would really be appreciated. . Thank you...........well after bleeding a little and nothing else, my doctor finally prescribed me something called cytotec. I believe one of you mentioned that might help....I took my first dose last Friday......nothing other than a little bleeding. Today at 2 pm I took a second dose....nothing. Took a third dose at 7pm..lots of cramping. No bleeding. Ill have to have the d&c if this doesn't work...weird question but since my ins won't cover that procedure, does anyone know if an abortion clinic could help me? Is it the same procedure?
