D&c 10 weeks ago for blighted ovum at 12 weeks pg, bled for 4 days after then stopped but bleeding every time after orgasm now, why is this happening?

Sorry : First, sorry for your loss. An ultrasound at 6 weeks may not have been much help. Next time, you will want to get HCG and progesterone levels early to get an indication if everything is OK. It is important for you to understand that you did not do anything to cause this loss. Also, most women who experience a loss will be successful the next time. Just be sure to be seen early. ...Read more

Wait 1 normal period: Sorry to hear of your loss. After a D&C your pregnancy hormone (HCG) will fall down to zero in a few weeks, with some bleeding at that time. Wait 1 more cycle after this before trying again - after your next 'normal period'. There may be a higher chance of another miscarriage in the 1st month, so use condoms. 1 miscarriage is common, if you have 2 or more see a rei specialist to get checked out. ...Read more
