Is it normal to have irregular periods after a miscarriage?

Sure.: After any pregnancy episode, your periods may take a while to return to normal. That's ok, but make sure you use contraception because irregular periods do not protect you from conception.

Please explain why have I been having pain in my side and irregular periods since a miscarriage 10 years ago?

10 years: A lot of things happen in 10 years, I doubt your 10 years of pain are related to the miscarriage. Yu will need a doctor visit with an exam and some tests to explain this: make an appointment, you'll be glad to get answers.

Common problem: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit.

See your GYN: You need to see your GYN. The most com or reason women have irregular cycles and trouble getting pregnant is PCOS.

Does irregular periods mean ovulation problem? I had miscarriage 3months ago still waiting for 2nd period. What is the problem?

Does irregular periods mean ovulation problem? I had miscarriage 3months ago still waiting for 2nd period. What is the problem?

It could but: In general irregular periods mean inconsistent ovulation. Three months after a miscarriage might be too early to make any long term judgements. If you desire pregnancy then tack your cycles over the next 3-4 months and bring the calendar in to your doctor. If you do not desire pregnancy then schedule a visit for birth control to prevent pregnancy and provide cycle control.

Hi, I had miscarriage in july 2013 & after that I am having irregular periods. I missed in nov 2013 & thn in jan 2014. What can be the problem?

Ask your GYN MD: Ask your gyn md who took care of the previous miscarriage to make sure all of the tissue was removed at the time of the d ; c. Retained products of conception can cause infection and irregular periods.

I always had irregular periods. After 3 years of ttc I miscarried, will it take as long to get preg again? Its only been 3 weeks still no period

Wait 3-6 months: There is really no way to predict how long it will take for you to get pregnant again. It is important that you wait at least 3 months, and preferably 6 months before ttc again. You need to let your body fully recover from the miscarriage. If you have problems with irregular periods there are medications that can help to regulate your periods and increase your chances of getting pregnant.

I got irregular periods & been trying to get pregnant for a year & I've had 2 miscarriages what can I do to get pregnant? I really wanna be a mommy : (

Get investigated: You should consult G.Y.N. doctor, who can do some test to find out the cause of miscarriage, and test for S.T.D. and other infection. And you get treated for irregular periods, also if another problem. Hope you get pregnant and get a baby

Can irregular periods make it harder to conceive? I have had one miscarriage and that was almost 2 years ago.

Can irregular periods make it harder to conceive? I have had one miscarriage and that was almost 2 years ago.

Definitely: Irregular periods can sometimes mean that your ovulating irregularly too. Without releasing an egg, you won't be able to get pregnant. At 22 years of age, you're quite young. Typically a doctor doesn't diagnose infertility in someone your age until you've had unprotected intercourse for 1 year while attempting to get pregnant. If that's the case, make an appt with fertility specialist for test.

MTHFR: Check you and your husbands MTHFR 677 & 1298 genotypes. This one of the main reasons for multiple miscarriages--if there are too many genetic defects, the fetus is aborted. One way to HELP this is to have both of you TREATED with appropriate L-methyl folate instead of folic acid. Throw away your prenatals I'd they have just "folic acid" in them--84% of the population has at least one bad gene.

Sir, my wife had 2 miscarriages, no irregular periods and 2 times got pregnant during 1 year. Doc suggested pco, is it possible?

Yes, it is possible: PCOS is known for prolonged menstrual cycles and infrequent ovulation. However, the diagnosis must be based on some form of documentation such as an ultrasound (multiple cysts) or other testing.

Why I can't get pregnant the second time my son is six y o and been trying since. But have irregular periods and blood clot, having miscarriage?

Probably ovulation: It is impossible to determine why you are not getting pregnant with an evaluation, but the most likely cause is a problem with ovulation. This can often be fixed with medication and/or lifestyle changes by a fertility doctor or your gyn.

Unclear question: If you had a period and pregnancy test was negative you are not pregnant. If the fever is still there, you should see your doctor to rule out an infection.

Good for you: Congratulations on having successfully lost weight. The closer you are to the ideal healthy weight, the higher your chances of conceiving and the lower your chances of miscarriage. Having said that, you can still explore some medical assistance to help make this happen faster.

Husband and I want baby. Taking folic acid also. I keep having dreams of me and my baby. Why? Irregular periods after d&c due to miscarriage. Please help

I like the dreams: Well your dreams sound positive! While there are a host of physical, hormonal, and not uncommonly, medical issues with a partner that can contribute yo infertility, it seems women are more likely to get pregnant when they feel safe. So have a simple check up. Get some reassurance. Not infrequently it takes time, more than a year or so, even for quite fertile couples to conceive.

I have the para guard IUD as a birth control I have irregular periods but now its heavy and a lot of clots medium to large. Am I having a miscarriage?

I have the para guard IUD as a birth control I have irregular periods but now its heavy and a lot of clots medium to large. Am I having a miscarriage?

Probably not: It is unlikely that you would be pregnant if you have paraguard, though it is remotely possible. A simple pregnancy test should settle that question. You probably need to see your women's healthcare provider to address the abnormal bleeding.
