Extended Period of Bleeding After Miscarriage


Q: My girlfriend had a miscarriage and started bleeding in August and hasn't stopped since. The fetus was only a month old when it happened. It was a natural miscarriage. She didn't take any abortion pills. The fetus didn't survive because she had to take antibiotics and an X Ray test for her vertebrae (without the knowledge of the pregnancy). The urine, ultrasound and transvaginal tests said everything was clear (no ectopic or cyst). Her gynaecologist said there's nothing to worry about but I'm just reassuring. Besides the bleeding has been going on for longer than it is supposed to be.

Symptoms:  Bleeding, cramps
