Treatment required after miscarriage?
I am/was approx 9 weeks pregnant. I had 4 days of spotting and on the 5th day(yesterday) severe abdominal cramps and heavy bleeding. I assume I miscarried, assuming the pain was caused by the cervix opening. I read that sometimes the cervix does not clean itself out and a drug or surgical procedure is required. Do I need to see a doctor or is there a way to know whether all pregnancy tissue has been evacuated? I am still bleeding and have mild abdominal pain.

You have to see a doctor urgently.
