      hysterectomy?

      This is a spontaneous (ie. not a termination) abortion. It was extruded intact with the gestational sac surrounded by developing placental tissue and decidual tissue. This was carefully opened to avoid damaging the embryo.

      thanks for answering; I'd seen abortion material that looked similar but was less intact. I'm glad this woman didn't lost her uterus as well. Your photography is unique - thanks for posting.

      What a great photo. Thanks for sharing.
      I hesitate to upload many of mine because most of my contacts get "grossed" out.

      May I use this image for a blog I am writing in HubPages on being 6 weeks pregnant?

      Any idea what caused the miscarriage?

    16. FilDewd 93 months ago

      Strange question, but how long would a fetus of this age be? And how long would a 7 week, 8 week, 9 week fetus be? Cheers!
