Hormones?: Extremes of weight (thin/heavy) can cause this, as can thyroid. You mentioned ultrasound and hsg are normal. Endometriosis and adenomyosis are also causes. If ttc, however, you can't really treat the bleeding b/c doing so would prevent possibility of pregnancy. If you've been ttc for awhile, consider seeing an infertility specialist to help you.

Hi, is it normal to have continuous bleeding 9 weeks after D&C? Ultrasound showed no retained tissue (only fibroid). HSG levels below 5 since 3 weeks ago. The bleeding has been continuous and ranges from heavy/chunky to light.

A little unusual: It may be due to the fibroid, or just very slow healing, but bleeding for this long after a D&C is unusual. So I would probably check for infection with a cervical culture, to rule out a mild case of endometritis. If you don't have an infection, your doctor may consider a short course of hormones to control the bleeding. ...Read more
