Hi,

Welcome to HCM.

In case of miscarriage (complete abortion), hospital stay is unnecessary.

Hospital stay is required if the bleeding is excessive or there is pain or the bleeding is persistent and there is suspicion of retained products of conception.

It is better to minimize the hospital stay to the bare minimum to avoid acquiring hospital infection.

Wishing your friend all the best.

it all depends on how far along she was in the pregnancy. I had a miscarriage at 7 weeks and spent less then 4 hours in the hospital. once you start to miscarry there is nothing the doctors can do to prevent this from happening. I was told i miscarried for one of 2 reasons the first being my period was abnormally late and the other was that the fetus was not developing correctly and my body discharged it. I will let you know that 4 months later i got pregnant again and now carrying a healthy baby boy due in 5 weeks
