Period after D&C

I had a mc on Thanksgiving day and I the d&c done on Nove 29. I then got my "period" on Dec 26.. not sure if I would call it a period or not, bc it was only spotting.. nothing heavy for a pad or liner just when I wipe.. I'm still spotting today and today is 8 days when it started.. I would normally have a period for 6 days...

how long is the period supposed to last for a first af after mc..

That's normal. I had a d&c back in July. And first period hit beginning of August.It lasted longer and went from spotting to a steady flow for about 9 days. It was hard for me to tell if it was my period because I spotted off and on before that on hit.

I think it wouldn't be normal first time round.

Sounds pretty normal to me
