Don't know if I should go in (TMI)...

I am miscarrying and when I get crampy I bleed a lot...soak through a tampon in less that 10 minutes (don't have pads, hubby won't pick any up and I can't go get any). When the cramping settles down so does the bleeding (soaks through the tampon in bout 30 to 45 minutes. Hubby doesn't think I need to go in, but I am not sure. This is my 4th miscarriage and I have never bled this heavily before (but I am also 12 weeks and the latest I miscarried before this one was 9 weeks). Would you go in or wait it out? This has been going on since 10:30 this morning.

  • Yes, you should go in. You shouldn't be bleeding that much where you soak through a tampon that quickly. The bleeding should be like a regular period if not slightly heavier, but not that heavy where it takes anywhere from 10-30 minutes to soak through. You should go in and you should be examined to make sure your body is handling it like it should be.

    And Yes, your husband is an ass hole for not going and getting you pads. Also for not taking your worries seriously. He needs to be kicked.
