Hi, thank you for your question.

We truly understand your concern regarding missed miscarriage. We will try our best to comfort you.

For your information, a silent or missed miscarriage, occurs when a fetus is no longer alive, but the mother’s body does not recognize the pregnancy loss or expel the pregnancy tissue.

You are advised to seek for medical attention at nearby clinic as soon as possible. A doctor will diagnose this condition, when a fetal heartbeat is absent. A following ultrasound will show an underdeveloped fetus.

If this condition has occurred in early pregnancy, you will often be able to expel the pregnancy tissue naturally. However, if this does not happen, doctor will likely recommend dilation and curettage procedure.

You are recommended to speak with our doctor via teleconsultation who can assess your symptoms and offer further advice.

We hope this answers your questions. Thank You
