Sorry for another post, but I just had an appointment with my OB and am trying to figure out what to do. I am not trying to look for medical advice here; I am just trying to figure out if anyone else has even heard of something like this because in all the things I have read, I have not. I would be about 6+3 today (maybe less due to dating issue with last cycle). Last week I spotted for about 5 to 6 days - it was never enough to fill a pad and much
less than a regular AF - but my HCG levels started falling fairly quickly. As of yesterday's blood draw they are at about 150. I've also had some significant cramps, but nothing much worse than AF cramps. I have assumed I may need cytotec or a D&C as I've had barely any bleeding.
I just saw OB. She didn't even do a pelvic exam. Just said my levels were falling fast enough that it would be fine on it's own. I told her that there had been very little bleeding and asked what I should do if I didn't start bleeding. She said it was fine, the spotting may have been it, and that once my levels were back to 0 I should get a period within 2 months. I had an mc before at 4+5 and there was heavy bleeding a different OB did an ultrasound and exam to make sure the mc was complete and that things looked okay after. It seems like all everything I read says cytotec/D&C will be required if mc doesn't complete on it's own. Has anyone else heard of just "leaving things alone" and waiting for next AF?
Edit: for those who didn't see previous post - I found out last week that I am definitely miscarrying as hcg levels have been falling steadily over the past week. I am concerned that I haven't had more bleeding.
