Miscarriage 8 weeks, Methergine to help expell tissue?
Flaxen, thank you for sharing your story, the website does help a lot. I had another ultrasound today and as I suspected the tissue is still there. So the doctor gave me a week for it to come out naturally and if not D/C needs to be done. So I pray that this happens naturally as I am extremely nervous about the D/C. Asked by Caren Jayo 1 year ago.

I was 7-8 weeks along when I began bleeding moderately for a few days. I started passing heavy clots and went to the ER. ER said I had a complete miscarriage and that the bleeding should eventually fade away. I had light bleeding for the next week or so and than the other night I passed extremely huge clots and tissue and had very heavy bleeding. I went to the doctor today, They did a ultrasound and said I still have tissue left to expell. I do not want to have a D/C so I opted for the medication to help the process along. I was prescribed Methergine 0.2mg to be taken every 4 hours for one day to help my uterus contract and expell the remaining tissue.. I just took the secound dose and have major cramping but I have almost completely stoped bleeding and am barley even passing any tissue.So, my concern is that I'm not passing the remaining tissue. And now I'm having regrets about taking the medication when I should have let my body do it naturally.Am I being foolish? What can I expect? Thank you Answered by Paris Mlinar 1 year ago.

Let me just start by saying that I am so very sorry for what you are going through. I myself have had 4 miscarriages 2 at about 4 weeks and the other to at about 12 weeks. I know how you feel about the loss and wanting to get on with life if a miscarriage is inevitable. The pain or discomfort the best way I can explain it was like having a really really bad period. 2 of them I had happened at home one happened at work and the other actually happened while I was in the hospital. There really is nothing you can do when and if it happens. I can tell you form experience that what I did and what the hospital did were very similar. They gave me fluids I drank fluids I took pain reliever they gave me pain reliever. Just know that when it happens its not your fault. If a child is truly what you want in your life then It will happen. Don't give up. I didn't and now have two beautiful girls 6 and 3. I wish you the best of luck and will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Answered by Beatriz Keppers 1 year ago.

Oh my goodness you poor thing I am sorry for your loss you must be devastated and I hope that you are well and ok I think you should be alright but you should probably return to the Doctor to have another ultrasound to see if all the tissue is out that could be why you have stopped passing it and again I am so sorry for your loss.

I took my 4 antibiotic pills 1 Friday, 1 Saturday, and 2 yesterday. But I have not been taking my methergine. I have no bleeding, cramping, or discomfort. What will happen if I do not take them? Has anyone else not taken them? Does Methergine cause horrible cramps? Answered by Alyssa Garay 1 year ago.

Hon, you have to take the methergine to control the bleeding and shrink your uterus to normal size. It should not cause you horrible cramps (i had to take it after a misscarriage). It is part of the instructions that you should have paid close attention too b/c this is crucial part of recovery. Call your doctor first thing in the morning so that you can get a run down of what you are supposed to be taking and when you can stop taking things. Messing up on these instructions can really cause serious problems for you so just get back on track ASAP. Good luck. Answered by Jake Loveberry 1 year ago.


What is the difference of oxytocin to methergine? and why does oxytocin given before the labor?
Asked by Vivienne Drelick 1 year ago.

Oxytocin is a natural hormone, classically involved mainly with stimulating the uterus to contract and also in the production of milk, but it appears that oxytocin has many more functions in the body, in the non-pregnant female and in the male. Synthetic oxytocin is commonly used to induce labour. Methergine is very different. It is an ergot alkaloid (the original ergot comes from a fungus on cereals, mainly rye) with a very strong effect of contracting blood vessels. It is used in obstetrics to stop bleeding after the placenta has come out, but has to be used carefully, because it also constricts blood vessels in other parts of the body; strokes and heart attacks have resulted. Oxytocin also constricts blood vessels. It is often preferred, although nowhere near as strong as methergine. Answered by Ward Twiss 1 year ago.

They gave me Methergine to stimulate uterine contractions to help my body expel the sac and such. We filled the prescription and got home and I went to shower and I felt it come out (sorry...gross, I know). It was definitely the miscarried embryo. Do I still need to take the Methergine since I passed it on my own? Answered by Clelia Laplaunt 1 year ago.

I am so sorry to hear that hunny! I hope you are feeling ok! You will get through this I promise! If you ever need to talk just e-mail me. Call the Dr. or telehealth just to make sure but I would say to Take it just make sure that all the rest of everything comes out. The Methergine is to make sure that you expell anything else that would be left in your uterus, and you want to make sure that you clean it out well to avoid infection.

Methergine question?
I was taking methergine and i had to take it every 6 hours i was reading online about it and it said avoid dairy products?? is this true? if so, i didn't but i had no side effects the pharmsist(sp?) didn't say anything about it and it didn't say anything about it on the bottle Asked by Roxanna Calway 1 year ago.

I would go by what the bottle says. There should be warnings on the bottle or package that you got from the Pharmacy. If you want to be super sure I would call your Dr. Hope this helps! Answered by Sondra Zadeh 1 year ago.

An exact answer of " Yes " or " No " to your question will be inconclusive. No matter You ask your doctor, the pharmacist, read it on the Internet or ask another individual whom is taking this medication. Why, because there are very few and rare cases recorded where Methergine (medically known as "methylergonovine") has resulted to interact with dairy products especially calcium. Personally, I will suggest You to be on the safe side and follow the following precautions: 1. Always make sure that You don't drink milk or take other diary products 4 hours prior and/or after eating your medication of Methergine. 2. If You have drank or eaten a dairy product and taken Methergine then You must monitor yourself for ergot toxication (e.g., peripheral vasospasm, ischemia, thrombosis, tachycardia and hypertension). You must at once notify your physician if you experience signs of ergotism such as paresthesia, cold or painful extremities, abdominal pain, rapid pulse, or chest pain. Wishing You A Good Health !
