Does a D/C hurt? how long does it take? They think I'm going to miscarry. The DR says she can do a D/C so I know when it will happen. How long do you have to wait to try to get pregnant again? I'm 8weeks with still no heart beat. they will do one more ultrasound next week then that will be it I guess. She thinks the baby died at 6 weeks.Answer Question

I am so sorry. I went through the same thing. I have lost two babies and had both a D/C and a natural miscarriage. The D/C doesn't hurt when they do it. They knock you out and give you pain meds for afterword. It does take very long to do. It hurt after but its not too bad. When I had the D/C it was because I wouldn't stop bleeding and the doctor said that to make it stop they needed to do one. With the second they had said there wasn't a heartbeat and the baby had just stopped growing. I didn't have any bleeding and so I was reluctant to get one because I wanted to be sure I was going to miscarry before making any decisions like that. I can tell you that the natural miscarriage was pretty painful (for me but everyone is different). And from what I understand you can try again as soon as your body returns to having normal cycles. Its such a hard thing to go through and please let me know if I can help in any way.
