Sounds to me that not all of the fetal tissue was removed.  Your body still may have some in your uterus and it is messing with your hormones.  It is trying to expell it naturally but is not able to.  I would have them do a blood test to see if you have any hcg in your system.  Something does not sound right to bleed for that long after a D&C.

Hi, when you say you are bleeding do you mean a continuous red flow - sorry for the question only I had my D&C on the 25th Jan and I've had on and off spotting, mainly brown ever since.  I did have what I thought might be a period, but it was bright red spotting which lasted a week.  In all I've probably only had about 7 - 10 days with no discharge at all.  I also had an infection a week following the procedure which I took antibiotics for.

I've not had my hcg levels checked, it's not even been suggested but I have taken home pregnancy tests which all show negative so I can only assume all the hcg is out of my system.

Just wondered if your experience is similar to mine.

Hi, no I dont have a continuous flow its more like you as in spotting all the time everyday, Ive had 2 normal periods from the d&c the 1st 1 was horrendous but I was glad to see it, I think ive had a bout 4 days in total with no bleeding, its really getting me down, is it ever going to end! I had my hcg level tested about 2 mths ago and they just said to me that it is reducing? So I have another doctors app on tues and I am not leaving until I have been sorted out. I started the mini pill 2 days ago but it has made the bleeding worse, so I came off it as I cant take the normal pill im thinking about having the coil?

I'm as frustrated as you, the spotting actually stopped Friday night but then I had a bit more today :(.  I was thinking of the pill to try and get things sorted but worry that putting hormones in my body might just mess things up even more.  With the coil, I had a mirena twice now (after my 3rd child and after my 4th) and both times I spotted on and off for the first 6 months.

I'm now waiting to see if I get an AF in the next couple of days.  The Doc wasn't sure if the last episode was one or not as it was just spotting although it was bright red and not brown and it lasted 7 days before stopping - of course I then started spotting brown again only a couple of days after, grrrr.

I've not had any tests done at all which is really bugging me.  Going to have to make an appointment and start making demands i think.

Good luck at your appointment

Strange you should mention weight, I have gained about 4lbs and also very bloated tummy.  I'm also incredibly tired.  Someone suggested I may have a low grade infection but if it was an infection then surely the discharge would be continuous with an odour?  I did have an infection a week after the D&C and the was awful, I was really poorly until the antibiotics kicked in.

It's not just the spotting thats frustrating it's not knowing if I'm due an AF or not, if I go by the date I had the continous red spotting and based on my pre pregnancy cycle then I'm due today - so far no show.

I had a D&C 17 years ago and had no problems after that at all.  Cycle came back right on schedule.

I'll try these and if they dont work im gonna book an app with a private doc, how are u feeling?

Hi hon, I really hope this next lot of antibiotics do the trick for you.  I'm surprised they haven't sent you for an ultrasound but then a lot of things seem to surprise me with regard to the medical world nowadays!  Apart from a teeny bit of spotting the other day I've been ok, so keeping my fingers crossed.

Hi I had a dnc april 28 I found out on the 26 my baby stopped growing I was two months pregnant. On the 30th called an abulance Bc I couldn't even walk no bleeding but I had excruciating lower back pain and the pain was traveling to my abdomen on both sides , hospital confirmed by body was going into septic shock as the doctor left more then 50 percent of the fetus inside me and I needed yet another dnc ASAP which was performed that same day . Few days later I started bleeding but it was light so I wasn't too worried ,however by May 6 I started to bleed heavy , it stopped around may 20 and started back up with a vengeance on May 27, by June 15 went to Gyn feeling frustrated and extremely worried she told me my uterus looked good that she only saw one cyst and one fibroid that I should recheck in few months smh she also said if I didn't stop bleeding by the following week she would give me something to stop it . Well filling week on June 18 I was soaking a pad every single hour by that say the 22nd I went to the emergency room I had fainted was feeling weak light headed and had massive headache . First doc told me it look like something went wrong durn my surgery n they punctured an artery , but then the next Gyn said looks like yet again more fetus inside of me ! They gave me some pills to insert into the vagina to expel the rest of fetus they said I would cramp n be in a lot of pain but within 3-4 days I should stop bleeding then go on the pill.they specifically had me double up for first few days wish made me puke like crazy and had massive headaches ( my body does not react well to birth control ) long behold my period or blood from whatever was Goin on next stopped its not July 2nd n I'm bleeding very red blot n clotting , I'm really scared as wtf is wrong with me ?! I've missed some school , I can no longer go to gym I'm loosing focus gaining weight n my stomach is so bloated , it was bad enough I lost a baby right after I lost my mom but this **** is alternating my whole life pls someone can tell me what could this be from ? It can't be normal to bleed this long !!!! Ps if I walk fast , try to workout or even sneeze more blood comes down , sry to b graphic,I want my life back This doc messed me all up !
