I am so sorry for your loss. There is a pill that will induce a miscarriage for a "missed abortion" or blighted ovum. The pill is called methotrexate and it makes your uterus contract and empty it's contents most times. An actual D&C procedure the doctor goes in and gently scrapes the lining of your uterus and pregnancy tissue out. You can choose either option, it is up to you and you should discuss with your doctor. Good luck.
