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

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?
