D&C after miscarriage


Can anyone please share there story? This was my first pregnancy, Im 35 years old, and after 9 weeks I was diagnosed with a blighted ovum. I had a d&c yesterday. Im very crampy, stronger than period cramps. Just spotting, no heavy bleeding. How long will this last and what did you do to relieve the pain?

The doctor said start with Aleve and if that doesn't work, she gave me a prescription pain meds. Im trying to avoid taking anything so strong.
