No: Brown blood is caused by blood that has remained inside the uterus of vagina a bit longer and has started to break down. This occurs as bleeding rate slows down and does not necessarily indicate that you have passed all the products of conception. Depending on how far along your pregnancy was, you may see bits of tissue from the fetus. You should follow up with your gyn md for an exam to be sure. ...Read more

Maybe: Spotting and bleeding can last up to 8 weeks after a miscarriage. If you are having pelvic pain, fever, foul-smelling discharge, pelvic heaviness, or excessive tiredness, you may have an infection in your uterus; see your doctor. If none of those, were your periods normal before pregnancy? If yes, wait another 3 weeks and then see your doctor. If no, wait about 6 weeks. Good health! ...Read more

Glad you have a Doc!: Not sure who allowed you to try for a tubal reversal. These are very unsuccessful and can be dangerous for life threatening ectopic pregnancies. But, you did it. It surely sounds like you are connected to good health care and they are monitoring your cervical cancer risk. What do you want us to have opinion about? ...Read more

Sounds ok: If you had bleeding about a month after the miscarriage then it sounds like thing are getting back to normal. The color of blood is not important. Give your body time to get back to normal. ...Read more
