how long was your first period after miscarage


hi all

this is day 6 of what i believe is my first period 4 weeks 5 days following miscarrage.

I am having horrendous cramps almost as bad as when i miscarried every day apart from day 3.

however i have hardley bled just light spotting really could have not worn a pad for first 5 days. Have some more bleeding today but still much lighter than normal periods.

How many days did your periods last for? Mine used to only last 4-5 days.

Is it normal to have such a painfull and light period? I always thought pain would have meant heavt bleeding?

Sorry to post again am just driving myself mad! Want not to be in pain anymore as i have pelvic pain front and back but im not sure if this is bowel related or weird period related anymore!

my 'period' came right on schedule, 4 weeks after my mc.....but I suspect it was actually round 2 of my mc rather than an ordinary period. It was incredibly heavy (I was using inco-pads rather than period ones) and there were loads of clotty tissuey bits in it - and I also passed the baby
However, I had very little pain with it - which is the reverse of my normal experience - usually I'm kinda medium heavy with a huge amount of pain.

It lasted for 6 days, hopefully yesterday was my last day, but I've put a pad on today just in case

For me it started about on time but as extremely light spotting for 5 days, followed by what is a normal period for me. No pain. I also didn't have much bleeding after the first few hours after the m/c (in hospital) - light for a few days, then spotting, totaling 2 weeks. But I guess this little bleeding is unusual.

Hi

mine was brown spotting for one day, very light red mucusy bleeding for one day, then just like a normal period; it is day three of that now. At the beginning it was actually a lot more painful than my periods are normally; but then again since I have had kids they have been virtually pain free.

Oh no, hope your feeling better. If its not a hard enough time for you.

I have just had a natural m/c but I was only 4.5 weeks and I only bled for 3 days. I haven't passed any clots but the EPU nurses have said that at 4.5 weeks that there wouldn't be anything more than a period to pass. Would people agree? I do normally have quite light periods for around 2/3 days, but I think this one was heavier, but hard to tell as i never wear pads usually. I am a bit scared now of what will happen on my next period...
