I think everyone is different but mine was normal right away. I had a d&c in April, then felt clear o signs 13/14 days after the d&c, thought I'd try an opk, had two days of positives like I usually would, with strong o pains and then negative. Af came at 28 days exactly, so normal cycle for me (though we weren't ttc). It was the same the next month, o on cd14, and I got pregnant with this baby that 2nd cycle (that was end of May/June). I imagine it depends what your cycles were like before, and I don't know if it would be different if you had a natural mc. Hopefully though you'll find it all goes back to normal quickly. I know for me I found it all really healing to feel like my body still did what it was meant to do.

So I had a D&C on April 21st. Things were kind of wonky for the weeks following. I only bled on the day of the D&C then nothing until my first af 5 weeks later on May 26th. During May I think my body tried and failed to ovulate 2-3 times (based on multiple signs including opks).

However, after that May 26th af things seemed to go fairly normal. I ovulated on CD17 of that cycle, which I think is normal for me. I didn't have as much cm as usual, but otherwise everything was normal. I conceived that cycle so I don't think the limited cm was an issue.

I had a d&c just last week, August 2, so thank you all for sharing your experiences. I've had almost no bleeding and my pregnancy symptoms are nearly gone. I used to have 28 day cycles religiously, I was as regular off the pill as I was on it. I am hoping I return to those and I get a period this month (my birthday is August 30...maybe a nice AF present?! hahah) or early September, so we can try again.
Good luck to all of you!
