abnormal cycles after d&c, anyone with me?

Postby mom2aDD » Sat Mar 08, 2014 7:20 am

Short and simple! Took 7wks2days to get AF, was a normal flow correct days and everything was good. I am a 28 day cycle and it's now 31 days! All bfn an no AF.

How long were your cycles after and did they ever start to stay consistent?

Going crazy! :)

Hi mom2,

Well I've heard that miscarriage can 'reset' things so your new normal may be longer or it just may be a while until they go back to normal. I can't really comment other than that because for the last 3 years my cycles have been irregular so I wouldn't be able to tell an extended effect or not.
BFP on Friday Feb 3rd 2017 but ended in miscarriage at 7 1/2 weeks :(

Didn't chart this time, last time was TTC for over a year, BFP chart from daughter :D :

Thank you, I am considering going on bc for a couple months to see if it will fix things. Not sure yet.

I'm with you! May I ask how far along you were?
I was 9 weeks at my D&C, and now 33 days since then, still haven't even ovulated!
Your story gives me a bit of hope that it will happen soon..was starting to get worried as the doctor said I should get AF in 4-5 weeks (which is where I am now sans O).

Hang in there, it sounds like your cycles are somewhat regulating.. or try OPKing as I've been doing until the cycles get back to normal.

Hi The_Mrs,

Your doctor is confused to me. I miscarried at 6 weeks and it took 6 weeks to get my period. That's considered totally normal. Plus, the longer you were pregnant, the longer it can take for your first period after. So I would say him saying 4-5 weeks is a little optimistic so don't panic! :)

I found out at 10wks 2 days but baby died at 7wks 5days. So I started around same time I was pregnant for. Then had my AF normal time but now waiting for second AF and 31 days counting. I better not go another 7wks!!. You have at least 5 more weeks I would think before you get AF.

Oh boy! I think my doctor really is way off then. D&C was 9 weeks, baby's heart stopped about 8.5 so best case scenario I have about 3 and a half weeks to go, YIKES!
The doctor advised waiting one cycle before TTC again and of course it is literally the longest cycle in history!

Thank you ladies for sharing your stories, I was really starting to panic!

Yeah it usually takes as many weeks as the baby was. You still haven't had your first cycle yet I don't think. I think first cycle is when AF comes and then she arrives again because then your one cycle is done and you try on the second cycle? I also was told to wait, but it's my body and I choose not to wait. I remember all I wanted was AF so I could try and no if was prego or not if she didn't come again...well I'm waiting for AF second arrival and no show, then I learn she can be late for a while till things settle down. Poopy!

I was 9.5 weeks (baby 6.5) when I had a d&c. My period came back 5.5 weeks later. I'm not sure that I ovulated that cycle. I got a positive OPK at CD 30 (starting from D&C) but my luteal phase was only 10 days and my breast never got sore and they ALWAYS get sore... waiting to O now on cycle# 2 and I have no idea when that will be :( hopefully soon! Good Luck!

Hi Haven - I wish I could just get something at this point, AF or positive OPK. I called my doctor since I'm 38 days post D&C and she basically told me to wait it out.

I have been doing a daily nipple check LOL, that's my usual O sign once they are sore. Still nothing, so don't think I've O'd (in case all those OPKs are just wrong)!

Good luck to you as well!

How long was your first cycle mom2aDD? Still no positive OPK here and CD 40!! UGHHH

I've thought about the potential time of year and also wasn't hoping for a winter baby, but after my loss I think I will be happy to be pregnant with a healthy baby no matter when! Besides I figure it may not happen the first shot, so may as well try.

I seriously think I am going to break the record on the first AF post D&C (And definitely not the record holder I'd like to be). Tomorrow will be 6 weeks and no positive OPK, so unless the cycle is annovulatory, safe to say I'm stuck here for a few more weeks.

I'm sorry your second cycle is so out of whack, nothing more frustrating than the waiting game!

I looked back on when I ovulated before my first AF. It took 25 days after a +opk for her to come! I hope you don't wait much longer. I am going to the docs tomorrow to see if I can be put on anything or check for BV because that will delay AF. Also want a blood test for pregnancy!
