How long until period returns?

Postby KatyinDC » Tue Feb 10, 2015 8:32 am

I had a recent miscarriage at 12+ weeks - and although we aren't TTC this month (I need time, physically and emotionally - plus I have to lose 5 pounds of baby weight from a whole trimester of pregnancy), I do want to keep tabs on my cycle. Trying to start charting again.....

When should I expect my period to return. When I went off BC, I am one of those people who got my period quickly afterwards, so I was hoping the same would happen after this loss.

When did everyone get their periods?

I miscarried at 14 weeks last July. I bled for about a couple days after my DNC. My period came back around 40 days.

I am so sorry for your loss. I had a miscarriage at 11w2d and had to have a D and C. My experience was a little different with the bleeding, I bled after the procedure for 10 wks due to the doctor missing some of the pregnancy material. Once I passed the rest of the material naturally I had a normal period within about 35 days. Again, I am so sorry for your loss and I am sending prayers and healing thoughts your way. I would expect once you stop bleeding from the loss you should start again within your normal cycle length.

I miscarried at 7.5 weeks. I started spotting CD28 (counting m/c as CD1) and full flow (AF) started on CD33. So it was 33 days for me. The spotting before my period was unusual for me (I spotted for 5 days) and I normally never spot, AF usually just arrives. I ovulated about two weeks after my first period, (CD13).

I waited this one full cycle and will be ttc at the end of March, hoping I get lucky the first time.

Wishing you lots of luck. So many unknowns which is frustrating but I'll bet your period returns within 1-2 months.
