General & Family Physician 's  Response

Your daughter was 6 weeks at the time of this confirmation. The products of conception cannot be left behind. It can cause complications like DIC. It has to be removed either in medical way using drugs or surgically also.

It cannot be left behind, definitely not more than 3 weeks.

Hope this helps.
