first period post D&C? HELP

Postby MEL66325 » Tue Sep 17, 2013 10:07 am

Hey, guys - I got my first period post D&C (details in siggy) exactly four weeks following the procedure. I only spotted for seven days following the D&C and everything seemed pretty normal. My first period started on CD27, exactly as it should have and I was happy my body was returning to normal so quickly.

However, I am on day 10 and bleeding super heavily. I've had seven days of heavy bleeding with no end in sight. My doctor wants to see me tomorrow, and I am worried soemthing is wrong or I will have to have another procedure. I should probably not worry, but I can't help it.

Can anyone share their experiences with their first period post D&C?

8/12/14- It's another BOY!
DS2- Owen Lane arrived 1/2/2015 :baby tumble:

Will we have another?? Praying for God's will and following His direction for our lives. We shall see!

Hm, strange. I haven't had one yet so I can't share my experience. But I do know every pregnancy can change your hormones. So maybe you'll just have heavier periods now. Though that would really suck, so I hope not. Another theory is that you didn't ovulate. Most people will just spot to end an anovulatory cycle, but some people actually bleed heavier. That would be the preferred option I guess. ANd next month would hopefully be normal. Um... And I guess a quite unlikely option would be that you had retained tissue blocking things and it dislodged and this is still post miscarriage bleeding. But the timing is too coincidental.
I think so long as you're feeling ok, not weak or faint, etc, its prob ok. But maybe call your doctor. My guess is he will say keep an eye on it. Hopefully it goes away and next cycle is normal (or bfp lol.)

I ended up going to the doctor a couple of days ago and they did blood work to check my HCG levels. They were negative. The bleeding has tapered off ever so slightly, so I'm hoping I'm on the tail end of this period. It has been 13 days as of today and I am over it physically and emotionally. I pray that this ends soon and doesn't affect future periods!

As for ovulating, I actually had EWCM 2 weeks from the day of the D&C. But, having said that, I had that abundant EWCM for 14 days and then started my period as soon as it went away. So I started my period on CD27, if you count the D&C as CD1. I'm not quite sure what is going on, but I will be scheduling an ultrasound next week if the bleeding doesn't stop by then. Hopefully that will give me a better idea of what my body is trying to do. I don't even my body knows at this point!

I had my D&C done on a Thursday and the following Wednesday is when I started my period. So far it's been a little heavier than usual, but I guess that is to be expected. But it's lastly a little longer too. I guess it's just my body trying to get back to normal. I go back to the doctor on Thursday for Post-op and to talk about the next step for us. I hope that we can start right away, but knowing my luck we will have to wait until after my next period.

I am on CD16, still bleeding. I went to the doctor over the weekend (their offices are open until 12) and got an ultrasound. There is no reason that they can see for me to still be bleeding. I do have two cysts on my left ovary, but they are small and the doctor isn't concerned. So now I'm on birth control pills for a month to try to get my hormones regulated.

AF does seem to really be lightening up now so I pray the pills work. I now have to wait for the pill induced period and one spontaneous period before we can start ttc. Looks like NOvember maybe? I'm ready to start NOW. LOL

I sure hope so, Suzy! I know you are anxious to begin TTC again soon!

I'm still bleeding...DAY 18 and about to literally go out of my mind. The doctor put me on BCP about five days ago and said that it would stop the bleeding within a few days, but nope...nothing. I'm waiting on a call back now from the nurse. SHe thinks the doctor may want me to double up on the pill to give my body a "jolt". It needs something, LOL!

I had an ultrasound, so I know there's nothing left from the baby, so they really don't have a clue why my body is acting this way.

Well my period has been an interesting one to say the least. I bled heavy for five days and then it lighted up to the point that I thought i was done and then it came back. SO I have no idea what my body is doing. I go to the doctor today so hopefully they will be able to tell me more about what it going on. Like all of you, I'm ready to start trying again. But since we have to have help in getting pregnant, I have a feeling we will have to wait until November.... or my luck later.
