Post Miscarriage "Mishap"? Help

Hey Ladies..A Lot of you KNOW me.....Our Second IVF was alo a success, but The HB was lost at one of our Follow-up Appointments. I have been combing the internet for hours and CANT find any help for what JUST happened.

So..after 3 weeks of waiting to MC......we ended up taking Cytotec. Within 2-3 days MANY larg things that ought not fall out of a person fell out of me, and I bled consistently for a full week. I went in for a follow-up U/S the Friday After taking the meds...and the OB said My Uterus was clear and cervix was closing. She said OK to resume "Activity" if the bleeding has stopped. So...Friday, Saturday and Sunday almost NO bleeding. So...The Hubby and I...after a VERY LONG dry spell..... decided to "Get it on!!"

Today....I sarted BleedingQUITE heavily and when I sat down to pee...TWO Cigar length and width SOLID/Dense Masses dropped out of me! What the hell?? I thought my uterus was clear?? Now the bleeding is pretty steady. I think I'd feel stupid going to the I know bleeding can go on and off for a few weeks..... But I think I am going to bleed to death before I get to call OB 2morrow. And WHAT were those things that I passed?? Seriously? The sac and placenta....and all the large clots passed a week and a half ago...... I think I just passed my cervix...LOL

Any thoughts or experience with this??

Lindsay - I am sorry that you still have to deal with this stuff. Are you bleeding a lot? I think I remember the nurse saying that if you bleed through a pad an hour to be seen right away. (wait, it was either a 1/2 hour or hour). It is strange that your OB said things looked clear yet things are still happening. When I had my ectopic, I was given an MXT shot which is different then Cytotec. I know that I bled / spotted forever, like 50 days or something crazy like that. I hope they get to the bottom of your bleeding. Keep us updated.

Hey Lindsay, I'm sorry this bleeding is prolonged. I think it is weird that your dr said your uterus is clear and then this happens. I hope everything is ok. Keep us updated on what your OB says.


Me - (Amanda 27) My dh-- 26 We have been ttc # 1 for 3yrs 5mths My dh has severe oligospermia, Ivf with icsi is our only option. Ivf # 1--- failed Ivf # 2--- failed Ivf # 3-- hopefully in March 2013 at a new clinic!

I'd probably call your OB and check in. Couldn't hurt at least and if you are bleeding enough to go through a large pad or tampon each hour I wouldn't wast any time in calling. My guess is that the masses were lining still but who knows. Good luck!!!
