On December 16, 1998, 9 weeks into my first pregnancy, I started experiencing light brown discharge which quickly turned into bright red blood (small amount). I had no cramping or any other symptoms, but I was alarmed and called my ob/gyn. He decided to check my HCG level(which was 6,400)and to do an ultrasound. He found a intrauterine pregnancy with "no cardiac activity". He said that I had had a "missed miscarriage" and that it would be in my best interest to have a D & C--which I did--that day. I had no problems after the D & C and only very light bleeding. On January 16, 1999, I had my first period. It was fairly heavy with some minor clotting, but not too bad. Yesterday (March 2, 1999) I started my second period. It has been awful--I am having heavy bleeding, clotting and severe cramps. I never had real bad periods before my D & C and I am concerned that I may have something related to the D & C going on. Should I contact my doctor or give it a couple more days to get better? Please advise. Thank You.
