Post D&C Period

For those of you that have had a D&C...was your first period post procedure normal?  Mine is very sparse -- bleeding one day then nothing for 2 days then bleeding again for 1 day.

Mine wasn't sparse, but it was very early.  I was told that anything can happen with that first period--it can be early, late, heavy, light, etc.  Things should get back to normal by your next period or the one after that.  So sorry for your loss!

I had  my D & C on 11/14 and had my first period start on Christmas-Merry Christmas!  It was not as bad as I had expected-3 days then tapered off..which was usually how my periods were before.  Now going to start trying again....

With both my D&C's, first period came about 5 weeks after and was weird.  A few days then stop, then start again.  Its normal to be a bit irregular after a procedure like that.  Chances are the next one will be more normal...at least that was the case with me.  Best of luck to you, and I am so sorry for your loss.
