Topic: First period after my miscarriage
Today it's been exactly one month since my loss on April 3, 2014 when I had a natural MC at 16w5d. Yesterday, at 4w1d since my MC AF showed up in the morning. It was red blood and a light flow and today it's heavy (as usual), yet I don't have any blood clots yet (blood clots are normal for me). I have no cramping, either (which is also normal). I expected a heavy, painful period after my MC.
I was actually surprised AF came so "soon." My total MC took two weeks to be over, though the last 3-5 days were brown spotting and not consistent. I thought I'd be sadder when AF came, but I wasn't. Just happy for my body to be "normal" again. I will be trying in the future, though I have no idea on a month yet.
Just wanted to share in case anyone Googles "first period after miscarriage" like I did.
