    Default Still bleeding!

    Hi everyone

    It will be four weeks tomorrow since I had a D&C. I miscarried twins between 8-9 weeks

    I am STILL bleeding! The last week or so I was spotting and yesterday I thought it had stopped so my husband and I had sex. This morning I woke up to bright red blood again! It's not a lot of blood but enough to concern me.

    I don't think this is normal. Has it happened to anyone else?

    Both my OB and GP are away at the moment. Do you think I need to get it checked out or should I just leave it?

    Thanks

    How are you feeling? I haven't had a d&c after a m/c but four weeks does seem like a long time.....were you given an idea of how long the bleeding might last?

    If you're concerned at all I don't think it would hurt to see a doctor.

    I'm feeling very miserable today Little Duck 😞

    I rang my OB's rooms and asked to speak to the doctor covering mine. She said it sounds like I have an infection and could have remaining tissue left over from my D&C. I've started antibiotics and am booked in for an ultrasound today. There's a possibility that I'll need to have another D&C 😓

    Hi all
    I had the ultrasound and the results were good. Finally some better news! I don't have any remaining tissue left behind from the D&C! The doctor also said my ovaries looked good and they are busy producing eggs which means I should ovulate in the next week or so! I asked the doctor whether the heavy bright red blood I'm getting could be my period. She said it's possible even though I have only had one blood-free day since the D&C 4.5 weeks ago! Hmmm. Strange how the body works!

    Hugs I feel your frustration. After my D&C I bled for like almost 3 weeks got a BFP 4 weeks & then started bleeding again 5 weeks. Turns out was a blighted ovum & miscarried again last week. It's been a very draining process.
    Glad your ultrasound showed up good. Hang in there. X
