Had a miscarriage, had period 6 weeks later. Now waiting for 2nd period. Currently 32 dpo. Neg. Preg test. Is this normal to be late for your 2nd?

Not usual: Though the first period may be late, by the second period, you are usually back to your normal cycling pattern, which may be 28 days for many women, but may be longer for others. The stress of the miscarriage may be affecting the periods, but if you are 32 days post-ovulation, other hormone issues may be going on, like thyroid dysfunction or high prolactin, so it is best to check with your doctor. ...Read more

I'm TTC. Usual cycle 27days. But now bleeding heavily with lots of clots which never happened before at day 23. Early miscarriage or period?

I'm TTC. Usual cycle 27days. But now bleeding heavily with lots of clots which never happened before at day 23. Early miscarriage or period?

Likely period: At Day 23, if you were pregnant and miscarrying there would not be enough tissue there yet to cause that heavy of bleeding/clots. Sounds like your period just came a little early - not uncommon to have slightly irregular cycles when not on birth control. You could see doctor and have a blood beta hcg test done to see if any pregnancy hormone is detected if you are concerned/want to try to find out ...Read more

Hi I've had 3 periods since my missed miscarriage. My period is due on the 17th Feb. Today I had clear mucus with streaks of blood in. Is this normal?

Yes: Spotting in the mid-cycle is not uncommon. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

I think I might be having a miscarriage my period is due today but it’s blood clots I’m scared I’ve been trying for a baby?

Pregnant?: Although a "miscarriage" occurring later than 4-6 weeks of pregnancy may have associated clots, if this occurred at the time of your first expected period, and this is abnormal for your mentstrual events, this may in fact indicate a pregnancy outside the uterus. Obtain a serum HCG test, which is very accurate, and if positive, see your gyn for an exam and other testing. ...Read more

I'm on 75mg aspirin trying to conceive after 4 miscarriages. My period has come and is so light, could it be the aspirin? Is this a good thing ttc?

I'm on 75mg aspirin trying to conceive after 4 miscarriages. My period has come and is so light, could it be the aspirin? Is this a good thing ttc?

Aspirin: Trials have reported that aspirin do not improve the live-birth rate of women with unexplained recurrent pregnancy loss. Low-dose aspirin is the only drug for which there is some evidence of benefit in reducing the risk of preeclampsia. Aspirin may increase the risk of bleeding. Aspirin is discontinued 5 to 10 days before expected delivery to diminish the risk of bleeding during delivery. ...Read more
