I got my first period after my miscarriage this week. It came about 5 weeks after the m/c which is normal for me as my cycles are usually 35-37 days.
My period was a bit heavier than usual, with bright red blood which i dont usually get. There was no clots just bright red blood for the first 3 days. It wasn't extremely heavy, just more so than usual. My main concern is that I had NO symptoms before or during my period. I always get lower back cramps a few days before my period comes & for the first day of bleeding but I had no cramps at all. It didnt even feel like I had my period! I always know when it's coming as I get back cramps for a few days but this time I just woke up & it was there! Has anyone else experienced this? Could it be a sign my hormone levels are not back to normal levels after the m/c?
I also only had a 12 day luteal phase - is that bad?
We wanted to start TTC again this month but I'm worried that my hormone levels still might not be back on track and if I was to fall pregnant I might not have the right hormone levels to support the pregnancy?
Am I being over paranoid? Or is all this normal for a first period after miscarriage? Do you think we are right to start TTC again? I just want to be pregnant again but I'm so scared!
