Had a miscarriage. Had cramps, bleeding, dead smell. What is going on?

lindseylbaker@ WWW.WWWW.WW I was 8wks pregnant and had a miscarriage 8 days ago. I had a lot of bleeding last week and it tapered off. About wed or thursday. Sunday the cramps and heavy bleeding with big clots started back. Yesterday the bleeding went bac minimal. Today the bleeding has gotten a lot less, but I ve had a horrible dead smell!!!! It is horrible. Do I have an infection or is it just the remains of the dead baby coming out??? No fever . This is embarrassing.

It looks like you have an infection along with an incomplete abortion. You should get your counts done, get a trans-vaginal sonogram if possible or a pelvic sonogram and contact your doctor immediately as you may need a surgical evacuation under an antibiotic coverage. Please maintain genital hygiene. Wish you good health.
