If this is your first m/c and at such an early stage I would say, Forget about including it in your med. history. But that's just me.

Now if someone has more than one, then you should include it.

It might not be as hard to talk about as time goes by. It took me about a month to even want to talk about it! I had my mom tell everyone because I did not want to and then I just did not go to any doctors for a month or two! hope you get to feeling better soon.

I think if it's recurring you should mention it to your Dr. It also depends on what kind of Dr you are going to..

I hope it gets easier for you to talk about

Ditto to what Susan said...I would say it just depends on what you are seeing your doctor about. For instances I'm seeing a dermatologist in January but won't mention that part of my medical history as there is really no need unless he asked the questions.

It will get easier I found the first loss the toughest by far. Take Care.
