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?

Still healing?: Orgasm induces vigorous contraction of Fallopian tubes, uterus, cervix, and vagina, which may lead to spotting blood from incompletely healing of mucosa from D&C. So, it's still logical to be patient and see as long as the spotting is slowly but surely becoming lighter and lighter. If spotting still lingers beyond 4-5 months after D&C, see your Gyn-doc for reassessment and counseling. Best wish... ...Read more

Had miscarriage at 7wks then unprotected sex 8-9days later, what's the chance of conception? Is it safe this early after miscarriage? I'm 26

Low: The chance that you would ovulate 8 days after completing a miscarriage is not zero, but it is low. If you're concerned you can take a pregnancy test to see if you're pregnant. There are no studies to show that getting pregnant again after a miscarriage has any bad effects on that subsequent pregnancy. Some women, however, like to have at least once cycle before they try again. Best of luck! ...Read more
