First Period after Miscarriage

Hey Ladies,

I had been ttc for 2 years and my husband and I found out we were pregnant 2/25/2011.  I found out on 4/4/2011 that our baby had stopped growing 2 weeks prior (I was supposed to be 9 1/2 weeks pregnant).  I had a D&C on 4/7. I just had my first period since the D&C and it was on time but it only lasted for 4 days, varying from light to heavy the whole time.  I normal have very heavy periods lasting 7 days.  Is this normal for just having a miscarriage and D&C?

Thanks,

As long as you are not having severe heavy bleeding yes this is normal.  It took me about 2 weeks of bleeding to get back in order after a natural miscarriage.  We were about 9 weeks along as well.  If the bleeding doesn't get better though I would certainly call your doctor and check in with them.  Let us know what you found out.  I realize this post is actually late so you are probably already back to normal so give us an update when you can :D
