3rd pregnancy-suffering from blighted ovum-no foetal pole at 7 weeks
Having had 2 ultra sound scans one at 7 weeks the other 9 weeks- both found no foetal pole and an empty pregnancy sack. Have bleed lightly since 6 weeks on and off. I have passed a flesh coloured piece of tissue last week but have had no heavy bleeding associated with miscarriage. Is this normal as reluctant to have D & C and will I naturally expell miscarriage products? Thank you in anticipation,

I would recommend a D&C. You could go on for months without expelling the products.
