Has anyone had a blighted ovum pregnancy? Just found this out today and my RE said it could take as much as 4-5 weeks to miscarry on my own, and even then it seems like there’s still a decent chance of needing a D&C. Now I need to go to a regular OB and see if they can help me as I’m not inclined to wait another month for painful bleeding to start. What did others do in this situation?

If your options are having a D&C or waiting at home to miscarry naturally, I would absolutely opt for the D&C. I had one and honestly it was not bad at all. They sedate you. You should rest for the rest of the day but by the next day I was totally fine. I ovulated about 2 weeks later and was back to trying in a month. My bleeding was minimal. My friends who miscarried at home found it scary and traumatic. I'm not saying a D&C isn't sad too but it takes a lot of the stress out of the situation.

Thanks - this confirms my thoughts. The doctor reminded me of my blood type today which was scary to me. Like I need to have that info handy for all of the blood I’m about to lose...I’ll push for a sedated D&C vs waiting.

Thanks all - I’ve got my D&C scheduled tomorrow morning and am thrilled I was able to get it scheduled so fast and start to move on from this. Just hoping I don’t start bleeding in the next 24 hours!

I totally agree with this - the anesthesia was great and I had no pain at all. Just had the procedure and came home and ate a meal and then slept until dinner. I actually had started cramping and light bleeding the night before the surgery and it was very painful. I would not have wanted to go through that over the course of several days or a week. I’m feeling physically great now.

I had two miscarriages. Had to do D&C for the first one. Like A1 said it was not that bad. It hurts a little but after that you should be fine. For second one, I miscarried on my own without any medication. That experience was a little scary at the start as you don’t know how much bleeding is ok. But if you talk to your doctor, they should be able to tell you when you should think about going to the clinic. My doctor on call said it’s normal and wait till morning to see if I need it come to clinic. I was fine in a couple of hours. So really depends what gives you peace of mind.

No d&c was done for the second one. But they will do D&C if someone does not pass the whole tissue.

I’m sorry you’re going through this. I had the same back in December. I opted for the D&C. Minimal cramping after and ovulated within a month. Talk with your doctor about what to expect post op.

Thanks. I’m just hoping I can get in to have the procedure done soon and have some closure. Logically I know that the pregnancy was not healthy genetically so it’s all for the best, and I’m glad it was found early. Really don’t want to wait four weeks for this to resolve on its own.

I had two D&Cs in 2020 - June and November. The first was a blighted ovum and the second the baby stopped growing at 10w. With both situations I couldn’t get in until 3-5 days after I started bleeding for the surgery and started passing on my own. The blighted ovum was a much physically easier experience than the 10w baby but in both instances I didn’t pass enough on my own and had to have the surgery regardless to remove all products of conception. I personally would always opt for the d&c because I was able to start trying within 2 weeks when I ovulated and my doctor said it was not an issue.
