If a woman has a medical termination of pregnancy or natural miscarriage, it is usually complete, ie all the products of conception are expelled naturally from the body. This experience is much like having a heavy, painful period. If the medical abortion or miscarriage is complete, no further action is required.

However, sometimes a miscarriage or  medical termination,  is incomplete ie. tissue left behind . In this case, a woman may continue to bleed and experience pain. She may need to undergo a D and C. If a D&C is required, it will need to be done at the hospital.
