Messed up cycles after D&C


I had a D&C 6/19 at 10w2d, ovulated on 7/16 and then had AF on 7/31. I was so excited. I thought maybe my body would go back to normal. But no. Around 8/8, I started spotting. And I've been spotting on and off ever since. Today, I was walking on my break at work and felt something wet and thought maybe this was finally O again with some EWCM. But it was bright red blood and while it wasn't heavy enough to be AF, it was heavier than just spotting. I am so frustrated. I just want to be pregnant again, but I haven't even O'd yet this cycle and don't know if I can even become pregnant right now if there's obviously something so strange happening with my hormones. Meanwhile we DTD most days this past week hoping my body would have just gotten the hint and O'd like it used to do normally. I feel really disappointed and pessimistic today.

I'm very sorry for your loss. When I had my D&C, I was advised that it could take up to 3 months for my body to re-adjust. That said, if you feel that something may be wrong, go in for a follow-up appointment. It's always possible that there could have been some sort of injury, and it's better to be safe than sorry.

Hi I had my d and c on Feb 23rd and at came exactly 6 weeks after. But the next cycle was 82 days long-nearly drove me mad. Then the 3rd was 30. My cycles were around 26 days. Haven't been testing for ov but l.p. is usually 15days. I'm sorry for your loss and hope your cycles straighten out soon.x

I'm now entering week 5 of my cycle and the spotting has continued on and off for all five weeks. Today I haven't had any yet, but when I think it's done, it always starts back up. I've contacted my doctor who says it "sounds a bit unusual" but has no suggestion other than to get an ultrasound if it happens again next cycle. I also haven't O'd yet. I was able to maintain a positive attitude after the miscarriage but now I'm really starting to lose my patience and I feel angry.

An ultrasound may be a good idea. It could show them if there might still be some tissue left in there, or other problems. It's understandable that you're feeling angry. It's hard when you deal with something so emotional and traumatic and your body just doesn't want to get over it even though you desperately want to.

My experience.
I lost my baby at 14 weeks, I bled for a week, then first O was normal and I got my first period 27 days after the ab. I also had a check-up about a week before AF and everything was back to normal.
I had a bit of spotting on and off this cycle. I'm on CD 20 today and I'm bleeding again. Doesn't feel like AF, it's not heavy yet but it's definitely more than just spotting. No idea what's going on. Either an anovulatory cycle or a very short LP. I just hope it's a one time thing. We're not TTC but I'm really hoping my OH changes his mind about that.
Good luck!
