Have spotting 8 days after period but miscarried on the 11th oct is it anything to be concerned about?

Pregnant?: Pregnant has to be ruled out. Obtain a home pregnancy test. They become positive at about the same time that you'd start your next expected period. If it's negative, repeat it in a week and call your doctor.

Had miscarriage 7 weeks ago passed everything using mistopropal thought I had period last week but no now back to brown spotting is it normal?

Yes: It is not uncommon to have irregular menses for one or two cycles after an elective abortion or spontaneous abortion (miscarriage). If you desire pregnancy be sure to take prenatal vitamins. If not, be sure to use effective contraception consistently. Take Care!

Unlikely: Missing a period is generally a much more reliable sign of pregnancy than mid cycle bleeding, which could be from many things. Spotting is sometimes from implantation, and if so, it does not signify increased chance of miscarriage.

Depends: Many things can through off your cycle incuding pregnancy. If not associated with any other symptoms then I would repeat another pregnancy test in 4-7 days. If assoicated wtih other symptoms then follow up with doctor

Missed period: Are you concerned you might be pregnant? If you have had unprotected sex, you could be pregnant. You could also be have an irregular period, which is no reason for concern. I wish you the best!

Unlikely: If you are spotting and the timing is close to your expected period, then it is unlikely that you're pregnant. A pregnancy test would be the most helpful on the week of your expected period. If you were not expecting pregnancy, start birth control. If you do want pregnancy, take prenatal vitamins.

I had spotting 2wks before due period and have unusually v.heavy period, now, 1 week late. Is it a miscarriage?

Pregnant?: If you have a positive pregnancy test, it could have been spotting with implantation. Miscarriage is usually heavy bleeding after missed period and having positive pregnancy test. Pregnancy test is best done with first morning urination. Best of luck.

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.

How long does it take to get your monthly back after a miscarriage my miscarriage happen two months ago and I just had spotting no period?

How long does it take to get your monthly back after a miscarriage my miscarriage happen two months ago and I just had spotting no period?

Below: There is not a definite time structure for this It can be a few months, or 6-8 months. If you do not get a "regular period" in 8 months, then I would suggest rechecking with your DR. Recheck sooner if any other problems.

GYN: You will need a pelvic exam, blood testing of all female hormones, thyroid function, blood sugar, and metabolic;ic testing. You may need specific medication to regulate your cycle.

Miscarriage: Remember that even though you miscarried you were pregnant. It usually takes a few months for a women's periods to become normal again after pregnancy. The first period is usually pretty heavy as the endometrium is overgrown at that time. Be patient things should normalize. If they don't by 4-6 months after your D&C, see your doctor for an evaluation. I'm sorry for your loss, best wishes.

Had a miscarriage-bled for 10 days then about 2 weeks later got period- bled for a week &have been spotting for over a week (pink & bright red) Normal?

Don't worry: It may take a while your body to readjust and your periods to get back to normal after a miscarriage. Try to relax and allow yourself to get back to normal both emotionally and physically. I am sorry for your loss. It is also normal to go through a grieving process following a miscarriage. You use reliable birth control and avoid pregnancy for at least six months.

Pregnancy: Light spotting is not uncommon. Be sure to get OB care since you have a history of miscarriages. Take prenatal vitamins daily, eat a healthy diet and avoid alcohol and tobacco.

Miscarried at 4th wk & started spotting brown & red blood with a tiny flow of red blood 4 a day. My BBT rose a day after and nw no blood. Is it period?

Miscarried at 4th wk & started spotting brown & red blood with a tiny flow of red blood 4 a day. My BBT rose a day after and nw no blood. Is it period?

???: Hard to understand the question. Your BBT rose a day after what? After a miscarriage, ovulation usually won't occur for around 3-4 weeks on average. The bleeding after a miscarriage is not a period, it's just bleeding after a miscarriage.
