I had an evacuation on Saturday 9/10/2011 due to a blighted ovum at 6 weeks. There was normal bleeding after the procedure and it stopped after 2 days. All of a sudden, i started bleeding heavily this afternoon. I don't know what to think. My husband feels it might be my period. But i doubt that as the time is just too short. Please i need an explanation on this. Thanks
You can bleed up to 6 weeks. As your hcg level and progesterone level drops you will bleed since the lining is being shed and whatever was left over is shed. If it continues more then 6 weeks I would go back in since they might have missed something and you have retained products of conception
