Can someone tell me how long will my first period after a miscarriage last?

Normal: A period after a miscarriage is typically normal to light depending on whether you had a D&C performed. If you have heavy or prolonged bleeding contact your doctor.

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

Soaking Pads Hourly: It's certainly reasonable for your first period after a miscarriage to be heavy. However, if you're hemorrhaging, meaning that you have very large clots or bleeding that causes you to change your pads hourly then you should probably seek attention. Otherwise it may take simply take time. If you ever have symptoms of dizziness or wanting to pass out, seek attention.

Unknown: It's hard to say what the first period after a miscarriage will be like. It's possible that it'll be heavier; it's possible that it'll be lighter. But what's more important is that you have one and it can take two months for one to come.

Miscarriage?: There can be retained parts of the pregnancy that can be passed later as you imply. Sometimes this can occur after the bleeding from the miscarriage has been over for some time. If there was blood with the tissue and it continues it might be an indication of the need for a D & C to make sure all the pregnancy parts are out of the uterus.

I have miscarried on october 2013. I had a d& c the 17th of oct. Recieved my first period nov. 23rd. Now 12-29 & no period neg p test. Could I be pg?

Possibly.: Assuming your period on nov 23rd was a real period and that your periods are regular (sometimes they're not after a pregnancy loss), you'd expect a period in december but you haven't had one...If you had unprotected sex, it's always safe to assume the possibility and I would get tested. Were you trying for pregnancy? If not and not pregnant, consider contraception. Get on a prenatal vitamin btw!

What are signs of pregnancy after a miscarriage if you haven't have your first period?

What are signs of pregnancy after a miscarriage if you haven't have your first period?

Back to School: Wow. Perhaps you are in need of a lesson in how your body works. Once the HCG hormone level decreases then your ovaries can reset and begin ovulation for the next cycle. You have already been told here today that this can take weeks to months to be healthy. Conception occurs if there is sperm ready to meet the ovulated egg at the next cycle. Sperm take one to five days to reach this egg.

Miscarried 2 months ago and I want to ttc again. I have been bleeding for 8 days first period since mc. I don't want to get on bc. What can I do?

Lots of options: Since this is your first cycle you can just wait and see how the next few months go. Since you are only 19 you my consider delaying pregnancy. For long heavy periods there are lots of treatment options. Birth control pills can regulate your cycle. Mirena (levonorgestrel) iuds can minimize your periods. Lysteda is a great new hormone free drug used to stop heavy periods.

Had D&c 8 weeks ago for miscarriage. First period 11 days ago, very heavy for week. Now spotting? Normal? Worried...

Normal: This pattern of bleeding after a miscarriage is very common. I suggest that if you want to try to conceive that you wait until after your next period. Or if you want to wait a while that you use some form of reliable contraception.

Hello. I've got my first period after a complete miscarriage and I've been lightly bleeding for more then 2 weeks now. Is it normal?

Irregular period: 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.
