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.

Re: First period after my miscarriage

Mine was lighter too, I had heard it could go either way, but "different" was what everyone agreed on.
It is kind of reassuring to have "normal" back.

Re: First period after my miscarriage

Yes, after all my miscarriages...I lost them all early...it was just like my body reset itself and got right back on track.  I will add though as I started to add fertility drugs to the picture I started to have more painful ovulation and periods.

Re: First period after my miscarriage

My first period after the D&C was very painful even though I didn't have many clots and I'm talking to the point I thought I was going to pass out from cramping so badly! Since the miscarriage my AF length went from 5days with 4 being heavier days and 1 day of spotting to 5 days of heavy bleeding/lots of clots and 2 days of heavy spotting. So now I get a whole wonderful week of a period big_smile ....hope you felt the sarcasm. LOL.

Re: First period after my miscarriage

Update: Bled for a week. Seems as though my body popped right back to normal. Got EWCM yesterday and today CDs18&19. My usual O day is 20 when not on Clomid. But I'm not trying this month.
