I don't know what they mean... *warning: miscarriage*

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I had a miscarriage. I am taking the medicine to help it pass since it was not passing on its own. Doc said if I soak a pad in an hour to go to the ER. But what is soaked? Does that mean dripping with blood? Or just full? I had 2 pads, 2 seperate hours that were full. There were still some bare spots (like at the front and back). Help?

When I miscarried a had very heavy bleeding for almost two hours. After I passed the sac it slowed to more of a 'period flow'. My doc said if you fill more than a super pad an hour for two hours then it is best to be seen. I think you will know if you are bleeding too much. Hope all goes well and your bleeding slows soon.

Means if you are bleeding through the pad. Just watch for dizziness and disorientation. If you don't have either of those you are probably fine. Like I was filling a plus tampon and pad ever 15-30 minutes during my miscarriage (I didn't know you were not supposed to wear tampons) but either way it was just normal because I wasn't anemic or dizzy or anything. Good luck.

I specifically remember them saying a super pad.

Yeah I was really tired during mine but I really think that is just because what my body was doing was just taking it out of me. But yeah they just said that if I get dizzy or light headed or just anything that feels off to come back in. I went in because of how heavy the bleeding was but they said it was just normal for some people to bleed that much.
