When will the bleeding stop?

Postby Romseygirl » Wed Feb 13, 2013 1:38 pm

Today my doctor confirmed that i am having an early mc at 5 weeks, i am to contintue to have daily blood work to follow my levels to make sure they continue to fall and all tissue leaves.

This is my first mc and hopefully my last.

Can anyone tell me how long before the bleeding will stop and how long before my cycle settles?

I'm so sorry Romseygirl. Those are never easy. However, i have heard a lot of women have better luck when trying to conceive after a MC because your body knows how to get pregnant. My OB/GYN says you are pretty fertile for about 6 months after a MC. you body should adjust by the second cycle. Especially if you are pretty consistent.

I have had 2 MC a few years ago w/ my DBF who is now my DH (I was not trying), The 1st was very painful and similar to the length of my period maybe a little shorter, I believe I was 6 weeks. 2nd one, I MC at 9 weeks and I had to have a D&C because the pregnancy tissue would not leave my body. I bleed for over 1 month because of the tissue- HEAVY BLOOD CLOTS- something was not right bleeding! So if you notice some weird bleeding go in right away. Hope I didnt scare you.

Its over now and I am TTC#1 hoping that I am able to get pregnant again.

I'm sorry about your loss.

I had a miscarriage last week at 6+3. It was a natural complete miscarriage so I didn't need a D&C. I bled for 5 days. The first three were heavy, the last two like a regular period, then just a little bit of spotting. My doctor told me it could last up to two weeks though.

You never know and doctors can always be wrong. Hoping that it's just a bleed and your levels go up too!

Hi, first time pregnant since ttc, i am on cycle 4.

Not my first pregnancy though, we have two beautiful daughters 12 & 15.

I had the mirena coil in for the past 11 yrs, makes me wonder if that has had sonething to do with my mc?.?.?.

I'm sorry for your loss Romseygirl.

I had a chemical pregnancy last month. I spotted for 2 days and bled for 10 more. I pray that you will recover soon.

Sorry to hear what you are going through. With my mc I bled for about 5 days then had some random spotting about a week later. I have read quite a few different mc stories and it seems to vary from woman to woman to be honest.

Take care and get plenty of rest x

I too miscarried on Friday the 15th. This is now my second miscarriage. The first one was a heavy period that lasted about 5 days and same with this one so far. I can tell it's almost over. Good luck to you while you continue to TTC. I will be giving it one more time around and if it does not happen...so be it! I have already been blessed with two beautiful children as well!

Romseygirl- I also miscarried this year (Jan 15 at nearly 10 weeks) and also had the mirena for the last five years. It was out in oct. and had BFP in December. My doc thought my lining had not built up enough after mirena which she says is common. I also have two previous children 9 and 5

Hi Mommabella, i had my coil out in early November, perhaps that was my issue too, not enough lining?

Did your doctor say how long the lining would take to build back up? My doctor did not even mention it.

I am sorry to hear that both you and jlnelson mc'd at the same time as me :-(

I wasnt prepared to be honest, both previous pregnancies were problem free but then i guess that was over a decade ago :-/

I don't think timing has anything to do with it. My DD is 11 years old and my DS is only 18 months. They are 10 years apart and both pregnancies went on without a hitch.

I wasn't prepared either...even though this is my second one. I thought odds were in my favor and that the first one was just a fluke. Now I am not so sure! Friday can't come fast enough. Hoping Doc will have some kind of answers!!

Good luck Friday, let me know how you get on!!

Im hoping that mine is a one off but who knows and how many times before i give up? Its been hard enough convincing dh to try again after this one, he keeps saying he is worried about my health and putting me at risk. If it happens again i dont think i will be able to talk him round a second time....
