sex while waiting for natural m/c?

cg_75 posted:
I was told on Thursday that it's a blighted ovum. My dr. recommends waiting for my body to naturally m/c. I know to avoid intercourse once the process begins, but I'm not bleeding yet. A little cramping, but no spotting whatsoever. Should I still avoid sex?

I don't think there is any medical reason to avoid sex. I'd maybe give your doctor a quick call to make sure. But if you feel up to it mentally and emotionally, I'd say it's ok. My first m/c in May was a BO and initmacy with my husband was a big part of healing for me.

Hugs to you momma, I am sorry for your loss.
