d & c period


I had a miscarriage at about 10.5 weeks. I just had my d & c. I had no bleeding after the d &c  or cramps for about 4 days. Now four days later i started to bleed like a period. Could this be my period already or is this still part of the d & c recovery.

My guess would be that it is part of the d&c.  Usually after the d&c you can count that day as day 1 of your cycle so it is pretty unlikely you would get your regular period 4 days later.  I had a d&c in Feb and I spotted on and off for about 2 weeks.  Mine was mostly dark red or brown, which means old blood.  I also had a clot in my uterus after the procedure so I would stop spotting for a few days and then I would start again, etc.  It was very annoying.  It could be possible that you have a clot too, that is just now releasing.  I would say that it is normal and that as long as it's not REALLY heavy flow or accompanied with pain then you should be just fine.  It took me 6 weeks for my first "period" to come back after the d&c.  I am sorry for your loss.  Good luck and feel free to talk to me any time.  I have been there, done that....

I would say when you have to change multiple pads within like an hour.
