Should your doctor have performed a D and C if you miscarried at three weeks?

Your doctor was right in not giving you a D&C. As you were only three weeks pregnant when you had your miscarriage, the baby would have bled out of you and nothing would have been left inside you. D&C's are usually given to women who have miscarriages when they have carried the baby for at least 6 weeks. As you only carried it for half of that time, it was not necessary. All I can advise you to do is not to worry but to rest and grieve, support your partner as he is grieving too and let him know how you are feeling. Once you have completed your grieving period, you will begin to feel better.
