In brief: 1st period

The first period after a miscarriage or a termination is often a little off.
Sometimes it is early and sometimes late. Sometimes heavier and sometimes lighter. I ask my patients to be patients and give your body a couple of cycles to get back to normal. Start birth control to avoid getting pregnant before you are ready.
