Gas problems after a miscarriage. Severe pain. Is it normal?

I had a miscarriage about two weeks ago naturally. I have now stopped bleeding but i have gas pain really bad at times. It hurts to use the bathroom like pushing wise. And because of the pressure of the gas i get what feels like cramping. Is this normal after a miscarriage? Is there anything i can do to get rid of this? Ive been taking gas x but that doesnt seem to help.

Excessive prostaglandin can cause flatulence, diarrhea and the bloating sensation that is usually felt before a period. Since you had an abortion naturally, you did have excess prostaglandin production at that state. Added to that, the use of medication also creates gaseous distension. You can try natural remedies like posture, intake of bland diet and avoiding heavy foods, avoiding constipation by increasing liquids and fiber in your diet and using antacids and carminatives for some time. Hope this helps. Take care.
