My doc said to expect my period about 6-8 wks after my D&C but to call her if it didn't start by them because it wasn't normal. It started right about 6 wks after the D&C. hope this helps...
Mine was w weird case because I bleed for 2 1/2 weeks and they said that it would probably come in 5-6 weeks. My hcg levels were high, but yours were probably higher. Mine started at 47,000 and it took a long time for tem to drop...longer than they expected. The doc told me that it would take at least 4 weeks after the bleeding stopped. Well 12 days after the bleeding stopped I suddenly got my AF! And I went back to ovulating right on time! So mine came at exactly 4 weeks!
Did you dr. check you hcg levels? How long did it take for them to drop?
Hi, I have had two miscarriages this year (one at 10 weeks and the other at 14 weeks) that both needed a D & E. I did not start my period until 7-8 weeks after the first one. And, I am 6 weeks post D & E and still waiting on my period. I am scare too. The first period I had after the D & E was very heavy. I went through a whole pack of pads in a day and a half. I started having to use tampons and pads at the same time to keep it from going through to my pants.
I did not call the doc when it was so heavy. What can they do anyway? What can happen to me? Does anyone know?
I'm sorry you've had to go through 2 miscarriages in the last year. I can't imagine how you feel. I've also had 2 but mine were about 5 years apart. I didn't think you were supposed to bleed that heavy after a D & E. I thought they pretty much cleaned everything out. I don't know what the dr would of done. I've heard of people needing 2nd d & c. Have you ever had you hcg levels checked? Everyones body is different and yours has certainly had a rough year. I hope you are getting better both emotionally and physically.
Thank you EAHTLH. It has been rough. I was just sharing on another topic that I went through a very rough grieving period and that one of the things that helped me tremendously was some articles about coping with miscarriage and life after miscarriage from this website: allaboutlifechallenges.org
I am doing much better now. I guess most of my emotional energy is becoming consumed with test results and researching answers and such.
I am very glad to have found this forum though.
