Painful Periods After Miscarriage
I had a d&c for a miscarriage at 13 weeks in October. Since then I have had painful periods. Should I go see my Ob soon or wait for my annual in June?
Painful periods: There are many options for dealing with painful periods. It is not likely to be directly related to a miscarriage 6 months ago. Your obgyn can do an evaluation and discuss the many options to improve this problem.See 1 more doctor answer
I am 46. Last month my period was only spotting, this month it is 2 weeks late and I have heavy painful period. Is a miscarriage possible?
My period has been regular but this month I started cramping around ovulation. My period was 5days earlier with painful. Could it be a miscarriage?
Preg test?: Have you done a pregnancy test? This is the first place to start. It cannot be a miscarriage if your pregnancy test is negative
Pregnancy test: The only way to tell a miscarriage from a period is to check a pregnancy test. It is very unusual to be pregnant (even if it is a miscarriage) with a negative pregnancy test.
My period is so different after the miscarriage is more strong and painful and is like crazy red is this bad???
Not usually.: Not unless you become anemic or febrile from retained products of conception. If it persists, please see your gynecologist. Hopefully, you will not need a dilation and curettage, but perhaps cycling with birth control pills for a few months might be beneficial in alleviating these symptoms.
How long after a miscarriage the period goes to normal?? I had it already 6 months ago but my period is very painful and a weird red

Had sex May 29 & June 6. Got period June 15. Worst period ever. Painful. Heavy. Positive pregnancy test July 9. How far along could I actually be? Some suggest I may have had a miscarriage but I have not had a period since.
Repeat test: If you have not had sex since your period on July 9, it is unlikely that your are pregnant. You may get a blood test for HCG which is more sensitive and specific than urine test. You may repeat the urine test. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

Irregular period, massive amounts of blood lost, soaking super plus tampons in 10 minutes, painful cramps, feeling dizzy. Miscarriage? Go to er!?!
I have my period but my blood is watery, really painful cramps that last long. All I could find out is ruptured ovarian cyst or miscarriage? Or pregnay
Watery period: If this is the first time this has happened, it may be. Pregnancy may be hard to prove if you miscarried because PT may be negative by now. Ovarian cysts may be shown on ultrasound, especially if you continue to have pain. Recommend birth control if you are not trying to get pregnant.
Better choices: Many women with painful periods benefit from using oral contraceptives (the pill). Consult with your ob/gyn for treatment options.
