Incomplete or retained bits of placenta can only be removed by surgical procedure (D & E) in case of above medication fail to evacuate.

Therefore, you need to consult with your gynecologist to proceed the D & E (Dilatation & Evacuation).

You can plan for next pregnancy 1-2 months after regular period and must follow precautionary measures to avoid preterm delivery or miscarriage. Taking vitamin E & folic acid is quite helpful for 3 months of pre & post conception period.

Be well & take care.
