    Default how long before AF arrives after an early miscarriage?

    Can anyone help me with some advice? I miscarried on 25 November, and by the time I had blood taken at the hospital my hcg was already down to 15 (I was only 6 weeks along and I'd started spotting the night before). I had heavy bleeding for about a week. The hospital OBGYN clinic asked me to come back for a follow up blood test, but I just couldn't. I figured the amount of blood and pain was my body telling me it was all over. I was having 26(ish)day cycles, but as of today (28 December) AF hasn't arrived. It's been 34 days and counting. I was expecting it to arrive by now. Is a longer wait than a normal cycle common after a miscarriage? How long is too long? When should I start to worry (more)? BTW I checked, and BFN this afternoon so I'm not pregnant again. I am desperate to try again, I can't believe how much I actually want AF to arrive!

    Sorry for your loss honey. My period came about 6 weeks after my D&C. I chat to a lovely group of ladies who all had MCs at around the same time as me, and the time for AF to come back ranged from 4 weeks to 3 months. If you are worried, I'd go see your doctor. I hope it's here soon, it feels like a small step forward once it does xx

    It was dead on 6 weeks with my first d&c and I've just got my period now 4 weeks 3 days after my last d&c.

    I wouldn't worry till you get to 6 weeks post. Unless you have any pain then maybe see someone.

    I miscarried my first pregnancy at 6wks and it took around 6 weeks for AF to return.

    I hope your cycle gets back on track quickly and you get your sticky BFP soon.

    Default how long before AF arrives after an early miscarriage?

    I miscarried at 12 weeks, AF arrived 38 days after sac came out. My cycles were normally 30-31 days. My obs wanted me to return if it didn't arrive after 8 weeks.

    They found out it was inevitable mc at 9 weeks though..... Just took a long time for my body to realise.

    Hey hun, I'm in the same boat. I miscarriaged on the 12th of November and still no AF, so 6 weeks for me now. Hoping it will be back soon so we can try again.
