Bleeding for 2 weeks
momkr posted:
I started to miscarry on May 2nd and have been through Hell ever since. My hormone levels are not going down & I just had a biopsy to see if the pregnancy was ectopic. Hopefully I will find out in the next day or two... but what concerns me is that I am still bleeding...

If the pregnancy was in the uterus, I have the option of the D&C or the methatrexate shot. While I don't want to be in the hospital, the idea of the shot scares me... I have heard that there is a chance of birth defects in your next baby if you get pregnant too soon. Any thoughts on this?

Thanks so much...

God Bless you! It takes a strong woman to go through all of that. I am actually waiting on the biopsy results today to find out if it was ever in my uterus or ectopic. It is hard enough to miscarry, but the blood tests & biopsies & everything else is the worst. I can't wait to have my body back! Thanks for the advice
