Miscarriage Treatment Options
This one-page fact sheet uses a question and answer format, presented in an easy to read chart, to educate people about miscarriage treatment options. It outlines the three miscarriage treatment options: watch and wait (waiting for the pregnancy tissue to pass), medication (misoprostol to help make the tissue pass), and suction (uterine aspiration procedure performed by a health care provider in the office). It explains how each treatment works and describes what will happen, and discusses pain levels, efficacy, and safety. The document clarifies that these methods will not lower a woman's chances of getting or staying pregnant in the future.
