Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

Retained Tissue After Miscarriage... Please Help!!

Hi Everyone,

I don’t know where else to turn. Long story short, I’ve been going through the waves of a naturally managed missed miscarriage since July. As you guys can attest, it's f*cking awful.  Each time I see the doctor, some tissue has remained despite expelling the pregnancy tissue, getting a negative pregnancy test and having my first period. I believe it’s just left over tissue from my uterine lining. 

The doctor explained to me today that I still have some minor minor tissue left over, but he doesn’t think it will cause me any problems in terms of an infection. It’s so small he doesn’t feel comfortable operating or giving me any kind of medication. He also said it won’t interfere with a future pregnancy if I’m lucky and can begin trying if I'm ready...

I’m petrified. What if it does interfere? What if I get an infection and miscarry? Has anyone been in a similar situation? I feel very lost.  Can use any advise...

Thanks so much 3

  • *** not if i'm lucky it wont effect me.. i'f i'm fortunate enough to become pregnant again 
  • Hey @eruvolo2018 - so sorry to hear you're going through this! I had retained tissue after my first miscarriage - tried to naturally miscarry in December 2018 and found myself with a positive pregnancy test in Feb. 2019. It ended up being positive from retained tissue. In my case, my OB recommended a D&C to fully remove the tissue, which I had in late Feb. 

    I would say you should follow your intuition and do what feels right. If you don't feel good about your OB's recommendation, it never hurts to get a 2nd or 3rd opinion for peace of mind. Then you can understand the pros and cons for each path forward and make an informed decision. Hugs to you during these tough times. It will get better ♡
