Hi .. we found out at 7 weeks that our baby had no heart beat and stopped growth at 6 weeks. I took mistropol on Tuesday and had mild bleeding . Doc prescribed another dose and I took it on Thursday and started bleeding on Friday afternoon .. its a day of bleeding and heavy cramping . There are cramps continuous and bleeding . Wanted to know if such continuous cramping is normal and expected and for how many days will these cramping and bleeding continue . I have no fever or low bp or any other complaints . Just severe back ache and cramping along with bleeding

I am so sorry you are experiencing a miscarriage. 


I have had a chemical pregnancy and had heavy bleeding and severe cramping for three days, without having taken misoprostol. 


I'd imagine a few days of bleeding and cramps is completely normal although it wouldn't hurt to email or call your clinic to double check what the norm is.


I wish you the best.

With inducing a miscarriage at 7 weeks you should experience contractions and expel the full pregnancy along with your lining etc.  I personally was given a choice of oxycodone or morphine to take also for the pain.  There would normally be a lot of blood and often large blood clots (I had blood clots the size of small lemons).  You would also see the sac come out which is clear/translucent and about the size of a loonie at that point.  This can be extremely traumatic. The "main event" should start about 6 hours after the misoprostol, and last several hours.  I expelled one last random large clot about 5 days later.  I bled heavily for 5 weeks straight, worst case scenario but not impossible.  You should be checked by ultrasound for remaining tissue afterwards -- if anything remains, you'd need a D&C as it could otherwise cause infection.  I don't remember the exact dose (how many pills vaginally) I took, but I'm wondering about your dose as it shouldn't take a full day to kick in.  Take care of yourself through this horribly difficult time.
