How long after natural miscarriage did your period take to come back?


Hey ladies, I've had two mmc's. One very early one at 5 weeks, where I waited to bleed. I had to wait a long time, I believe more than a month... I am counting the first heavy bleeding spell as day one and then counting forward to my first period after a bunch of stop and start bleeding. I'm pretty sure it took me about 6 weeks, or a month and a half to have a proper period. I know it's tough math, but if you can, share how long your wait was so people in the midst of it can look forward to af. ... : ). That's right, in this case, we are looking forward to af!



note please, that i'm making this poll open to everyone so that when you answer, others will be able to connect a name with a number and you can message eachother if you're on similar paths. I also made the poll so that those of us with more than one loss can give an answer for each time.

consider this a thread on which to wait for af and entertain and support one another once af has arrived. xoxoxox

if you chose to take pills or do a d&c, here are similar polls. i'm actually currently on the road to recovery from d&c following my second missed miscarriage at 8 weeks : (. i'm waiting for af right now and that's what inspired me to make the polls. more kisses and hugs, i think we need all we can get. xoxoox

How long after medical management (ie. cytotech) did your period take to return?
How long after d&c did your period take to come back?

Hi Amy. I remember mine was stop and start for a long time . I had some interesting colored blood in there throughout it all too. Not to pry, but if you want to share, there's no such thing as tmi. btw, beautiful pic. i got engaged recently and hope to be wearing a pretty white dress in summer 2013.

....also, it may not be the normal af you're used to, but the timing, one month after is really promising! meaning i bet even though it's different, it COUNTS! and you're getting back into the swing of things so to speak.

I really hope to "get back into the swing of things." My hormones/body have been all over the place (as I am sure you all know all too well) and I have been struggling with that. Things do seem to be settling back to some sense of physical normalcy though, so that is good at least.

Thanks for the comment on my picture... we were just recently married... our little bean was conceived on our honeymoon, and then quickly lost. It has not exactly been what I had hoped/expected for our first months of marriage, but at least we have each other and I have been quite please, mostly, by how we have handled this loss as a couple.

Its different for everyone. When I found out I was starting to miscarry in Sept 2011, my dr did a d&e due to my history. I went 9 whole weeks no period, me and my hub started to have sex and I told him we had to stop b/c I had yet to get my period. 14 weeks still no period landed in ther ER in horrible pain and again at 15 weeks with no period. Turns out that 1 time I started to have sex got me pregnant and I miscarried at home that time. I got my period about 4 weeks later. I am in the process of losing this baby so I plan to keep my hub away for awhile. I am not even in the mood Im so devastated about this loss.
