Physical Recovery After a Miscarriage Procedure

Going through a miscarriage is very sad and can be quite traumatic. It really helps to be well informed about what happens during a miscarriage procedure and what kind of recovery after a miscarriage to expect.

Miscarriage is hugely emotional, please refer to my other pages on healing after miscarriage for emotional advice and support. It is so important to take the time to heal from your miscarriage properly.

How Long Does it Take to Recover After a Miscarriage Procedure

Physical recovery after a miscarriage can really vary, depending on the length of your pregnancy. As you can imagine, the further along you were, the more pregnancy hormones you would have in your body. Hormone levels need their time to return to pre-pregnancy levels. Be prepared to expect postpartum symptoms due to your hormone levels changing, especially hair loss.

Seek medical advice if at any point you develop a fever, experience chills, severe abdominal pain, severe headaches, continuous heavy bleeding or strongly smelling discharge.

Physical Recovery after a Natural Miscarriage

Physical recovery from a natural miscarriage that happened within the first trimester may take between one or two menstrual cycles. It really depends on how long your hormones take to stabilise again, which will mean the return to a normal menstrual cycle. Some women experience a delay to their next cycle, others may skip a cycle, whereas some women have a normal menstrual cycle.

You may experience some more intense cramping and heavier bleeding as you miscarry. Take some time to rest your body and take pain relief if you need it.

Always use sanitary pads and avoid using tampons for at least a month after you miscarry in order to prevent any possibilities of infection.

Physical Recovery after a Dilation & Evacuation Surgery

Physical recovery after a Dilation & Evacuation is similar to after a Dilation & Curettage. You may however experience more intense cramping as your uterus contracts backs to its original size.

Physical Recovery After a Stillbirth

Physical recovery after a stillbirth is the same as recovering from a normal birth. Following a stillbirth, a woman will experience postpartum bleeding for up to six weeks, after pains, her milk will come in, she will feel tired and may have problems with postpartum hemorrhoids. You may have needed stitches after giving birth and need to take good care of the healing process.

Be sure to rest and take time to heal physically.
