    Default First period after MC

    I’m looking to know what others experiences have been please?

    How long after MC did it arrive?
    Was it normal flow for you? Or was it much lighter/heavier?

    I’m about 5 weeks after MC and today I’ve had some very light, intermittent spotting, I’m thinking/hoping it’s the start of AF, but it’s a very unusual cycle start for me.

    Default First period after MC

    I had mine back after 28 days from the day of D&C.

    The flow was slightly heavier but still like a normal period and last for about the same days and my period pain had gone for the last 2 cycles

    It’s normal sometime take a few cycle to back to normal.

    Thanks for your reply. I’m sorry for your loss.

    My cycles usually run like clockwork, so this is all new to me

    Sorry for your loss. I've had 2 and 1 chemical and they've been different.
    1st was at 6 weeks and came naturally after a few days after I was told it may not be viable but my most recent MC was twins. We lost a HB in one then the other 6 days later. I had a D&C the next day at 9w6d. That was 8 weeks ago tomorrow and I only just got my AF back. It first started a week ago as slight spotting when wiping, there only every 2nd day this week but today it appears to be starting as a normal light period. I think a lot of it depends on if it was natural MC, how long ago, how far you were, how high your hcg was etc.

    Hi there. I’m the same at the moment and has been to see an obgyn who can induce my period if needed. My cycles were regular 28-30 days so I am concerned my period hasn’t resume.

    I miscarried early Feb and still do not have my period. It’s now 60 days - 8.5 weeks. My HCG has gone down below 5 for a few weeks now from a 10 week old miscarriage but still no period.

    I had gone to see a obgyn / fertility specialist for a consultation to ensure I have all things checked before my next embryo transfer. He did a quick ultrasound and confirmed I have a good thick lining with a smooth outline. He also did 3 blood tests for me - to check my standard hormone levels eg day, Estrogen, progesterone etc. The first test being a baseline and the 2nd / 3rd to see what’s rising or falling.

    It turned out my baseline levels are high - Estrogen already high so we kept tracking.by the 3rd test, the doctor advised it appears my body is not cycling so has me on Provera (Progesterone) now for 5 days, once a day. After I stop, I’m told to expect a flow in 1-2 days. I have 3 more days of Provera at the moment. Doc said if I had no lining, getting me on Provera wouldn’t be a good idea as there would be little or no lining to shed.

    I suggest you go see an obgyn for advice.

    Thanks @Simyt and @Birdface. I’m sorry for your losses as well.

    I’m sitting in the waiting room for FS now to see what’s happening, and to get some bloods done.

    I had a natural MC at 8.5weeks (Bub only showing 6week2days) and my HCG was relatively low to start with.
    I felt ovulation pains about 2weeks after.
