Maybe not at 40 days: Only a positive pregnancy test can tell a woman that prior spotting was actually implantation spotting. It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. ...Read more
43 yrold w normal periods to date.Had 40 days b/t cycles and light period lasting 4 days. 2days later woke up to extreme heavy bleeding and big clots?
Not normal: Most commonly it is from not ovulating. I would recommend running a pregnancy test. When a woman over 35 has very heavy cycle, she needs to be evaluated to make sure there are no precancerous changes taking place in the uterus. It would also be a good idea to check your thyroid levels, a blood count and probably for diabetes too if that hasn't been done recently. ...Read more
Started heavy bleeding 9 days after hysteroscopy. Still heavy 4 days later, is this normal? (been bleeding for 4 months after a miscarraige.)

Some bleeding after the procedure is normal but heavy bleeding is not. Follow-up with your gyn. Also make sure your iron stores are adequate since you have been bleeding for so long. ...Read more

Bleeding, miscarriag: It's too soon to be having intercourse so please stop and let your body recover. Bleeding after a miscarriage can occur up to six weeks after. A normal period usually doesn't occur until 4 to 6 weeks later. Ovulation will occur two weeks before that. If you must have sex, use a condom and don't try to conceive until after you've had a normal period so we know how far along you are. ...Read more
