Douce After Miscarriage

Wind - September 24

I miscarried after 6 weeks of pregnancy, I bled for about 10 days, and have been spotting ever since (it's 18 days later). The spotting started to increase in flow, and its' a little pinker. I wonder if I were to douche if that is okay- I dread a d&c, and my doctor want me to have my hcg tested again next week- 5 days ago it was 1400. I am hoping a douche my help me pass any left over tissue, but I can not find any info about it.

You need to get a scan to see if there is any left over tissue- there might not be. If you do have to have a d&c although not pleasant it will get everything - otherwise there are infections you may get- it's the "sensible" thing to do. It's a very sad time- I wish you lots of luck!

Actually it is never ok to douche...there is no reason for it, all it does it wash away the good bacteria in your v____a and can cause you to get an infection.
