How Long Can a Dead Fetus Stay in the Uterus?

Answer

A dead fetus can stay in the uterus for a long period of time if a woman does not go to get it taken out by a doctor. If the miscarriage happens in the first few weeks of pregnancy, the fetus will leave the uterus on its own. If a dead fetus is left in the body for longer then a week, it can cause toxic chemicals to develop in the uterus that can cause death.
