Assessment and management of bleeding in early pregnancy FAQ's

How is a missed miscarriage treated?

This can be treated either medically with misoprostol, or surgically by surgery to remove the products of conception.

What is the advantage of surgery over medical treatment?

Surgical treatment will ensure that there are no retained products of conception, and allow the products to be assessed for a genetic cause of miscarriage.

Can a failing pregnancy be supported?

If there is bleeding in early pregnancy, with a viable fetus, vaginal progesterone support (cyclogest) can be effective.

Is intervention necessary?

Once an ectopic pregnancy is excluded, some doctors will choose conservative treatment, and wait for the miscarriage to complete. However, there may be retained placental tissue which can give rise to irregular bleeding and delay a further pregnancy.
