  • Yes, after my first pregnancy ended in early miscarraige my Dr found that it had not totally aborted and I required a D&C to clear everything. If all is not cleared an infection that can affect future fertility is possible.

  • With my first miscarriage I didn't have a OB/GYN yet because I was only 17 so my mom called our family doctor and he told me just to let it pass at home but to come in if there were problems. With my second miscarriage I had an OB/GYN and he checked me but I only had him check me because I wanted to TTC again ASAP.
