I think it is different for everyone. I mc at 6 wks and only bled for 2 wks but I know many people bleed longer than that. You should call your Dr and see what they think. They may need to check your levels to see if you still have a lot of HCG in your system and decide what is the right thing to do.

Sorry to hear that. I also went though everything you talked about. I had a dnc for my first one and had bleeding for two weeks. Second i was 6weeks and had on off on off bleeding after two weeks had spotting and then heavy again. I agree go for a check up at the doc.

I;m really sorry you had to go through that. It is not an painless experience. I have had 3 mi/c and bleed only for 1 week. After that just a little spotting for a couplee of more days. You are bleeding since the 6 and is a quite long period. You should go see a doctor and have your levels checked  to see if they have dropped or no. And sometimes the reason for a long bleeding is that the embryo is not completely dettached from the uterus. You should have a sono. done to see if you are completely cleaned, otherwise you will need a D&C. Take care

Yep, that's what I went through back in June. I bled for about 4-6 weeks. I had days where it was lighter than others. And some days were more painful than others.

Have you had blood test to see if your levels are back to 0 yet?  When I had my m/c last year, it lasted about 3 wks.  Good Luck and I agree that you should avoid a dnc if at all possible!
