    Hi. Just wanted to offer my experience.
    Had a D&C in November 2014, after a MMC. After that, my period came spot on 28 days the first month, but like you I had brown stringy spotting however this was mid cycle.

    After this, my periods were not as regular as they had been. (I'd always had 28 day cycles). They were now anywhere from 28 days - 34 days, which was really hard as every time I thought my period was "late" and I might be pregnant, I would be greeted just a few days later with the witch. My periods did change after my D&C, and nobody believed me until I found my current GP.
    For some reason, after my D&C my periods were quite light, then heavy, then light, then spotting. Not normal.
    It then took me 18 months to successfully fall pregnant, which my current GP put down entirely because of my D&C. My cycles were so irregular and my lining wasn't shedding properly, and was too thick for a successful implantation which resulted in numerous chemical pregnancies over those 18 months. My GP first time I saw her, told me to try low dose aspirin as it would help thin the blood and create more blood flow in my uterus, and surprise surprise, we fell pregnant that month and are due in just over a month!

    Definitely seek more opinions and don't stop until you're happy with the results.

    Thank you so much for adding your experience! I am relieved to talk to someone who has also experienced these changes periods and the emotions and pain that comes with them and also the disbelief and uncaring attitude! Was the brown stringy stuff new for you? and did you experience this each month or just the first cycle?

    I have booked another GP appointment at a different practice for a second opinion and hope I strike lucky with what this GP knows.... some GPs specialise in womens health etc while others seem to know less than I do about this topic.

    So I had a Trans-V ultrasound and they did not find endometriosis which is a good sign but they found that I have a seperated uterus measuring 68x32x53mm. I am not sure what this means for fertility.

    My right ovary is 4cc but the left one is 10cc and has a corpus luteum with another 15mm follicle on that side (I think this just means I just ovulated from that side?) It is frustrating because the radiologist said she couldn't tell me anything as it was up to the Dr who is qualified, so I had to make an appointment with the Dr today and he said GPs are bad at reading ultrasounds so he couldn't answer my questions! what a ridiculous system.

    As for my irregular periods and pain, I'm on a watch and wait what happens, and if it doesn't resolve in a couple of months then my GP will refer me to a specialist so I can get prodded some more and probably not get any answers

    An ultrasound won't show endometriosis.

    I'd get a referral to a good fertility specialist to sort out all the issues as it sounds like your GP has no idea
