IPPL CNEs in collaboration with the Women and Children’s Health Program and the Emergency Department

After early pregnancy loss, you may wait for the tissue to pass on its own (expectant management), take medication called misoprostol (medical management), or be scheduled for a surgery called a dilation and curettage (D and C). This pamphlet explains what will happen with each of the 3 options. Possible complications, discharge instructions, and what to do in an emergency are listed. A list of local resources is given.
