Hi! I'm sorry to hear that there was no heart beat found. At 8 weeks there should be a definite heart beat and fetal activity. If your wife was my patient, I would suggest a couple of options. One would be a dliation and curretage procedure to evacuate the uterus. This can be done in a surgery center, or in some cases in the office. If you preferred not to choose this option, another might be to use medications to induce a "medical miscarriage". A gynecologist or women's clinic such as Planned Parenthood could assist you with something like that. Finally, there is a good chance that your wife will miscarry on her own with no intervention, but the timing will be uncertain. Good luck and my condolences Dr B
Hi, my wife is 8th week pregnant and sack is big but fetus is very small and no heart beat. Is there any chances ? Doc had given 2 option for removing that is by taking medicine or d&c. Which of these two is safe ? Will there be any infection if we try to wait for miscarry to happen its own?
