Heavy period after d&c

Common Questions and Answers about Heavy period after d&c


Avatar m tn Hi! I had a D&C on 11/3/2011 for heavy periods. 2 weeks ago I finally got my period. It wasn't too bad. Then it seemed as it was going away. Then I started spotting again and then bleeding very heavy for two days then today it was light in morning and just got heavy again now. This is day 15 of bleeding. Is this normal for 1st period after D&C?
Avatar f tn That's normal. I had a d&c back in July. And first period hit beginning of August.It lasted longer and went from spotting to a steady flow for about 9 days. It was hard for me to tell if it was my period because I spotted off and on before that on hit.
Avatar n tn My doc said to expect my period about 6-8 wks after my D&C but to call her if it didn't start by them because it wasn't normal. It started right about 6 wks after the D&C. hope this helps...

436469 tn?1248977445 That is frustrating for you! Maybe it is not necessary for you to, but since I never got my period back after my D&C, my doctor had me give a blood sample to check for HCG, and if there was still some present, then there was still some left. Congratulations on your baby!
Avatar f tn Yeah it is probably your period from what I read your period usally returns about 4 to 8 weeks after a D&C. There is something about intercourse that helps get the ball rolling with your period if it is close to that time anyway. I had the same situation except I didn't have a D&C and my miscarriage had been over two months ago.
Avatar f tn I know many women have asked this question before, so I wanted to post a journal entry about getting my period after D&C. I had to get a D&C on April 2, 2008 after finding out that my pregnancy was non-viable/missed abortion. My doctor told me I should start my cycle within 4-6 weeks after the D&C, and I started my period yesterday, May 4, 2008. I thought it would be a light cycle following the D&C, but it actually seems to be heavier than normal.
Avatar n tn Around 3 years ago I was experiencing abnormal vaginal bleeding between periods. It was sometimes just spotting, other times is was fairly heavy (often with small clots) and would persist for about 4 to 5 days mid-cycle. During this time, my periods would then be really light or really heavy. I could never be sure. I went to several doctors, who all tried to prescribe birth control pills to "regulate" me.
1085628 tn?1326555485 Gina, My guess would be that it is part of the d&c. Usually after the d&c you can count that day as day 1 of your cycle so it is pretty unlikely you would get your regular period 4 days later. I had a d&c in Feb and I spotted on and off for about 2 weeks. Mine was mostly dark red or brown, which means old blood. I also had a clot in my uterus after the procedure so I would stop spotting for a few days and then I would start again, etc. It was very annoying.
Avatar n tn For those of you that have had a D&C...was your first period post procedure normal? Mine is very sparse -- bleeding one day then nothing for 2 days then bleeding again for 1 day. Thanks.
1068361 tn?1290631759 hi all i'm wondering if anyone can give me more information about a "normal" first af after a d&c. my first af post d&c started yesterday, it is very light (red blood) and somewhat "clotty". is this normal? i thought the first period after a d&c was supposed to be very heavy. im very concerned about scarring and ashermans syndrome...please help!
233405 tn?1190472197 Not sure if you can get your period so soon after the procedure. I had a D&C on 7/19 and had spotting and heavy bleeding for over a week after the procedure. Since then nothing and it's going on 4 weeks tomorrow. Good luck, I know how you feel, I want to try again, but my doctor asked that I have at least 1 period first.
Avatar n tn yes itz normal to have weird periods post D&C,she may face longer/shorter periods,less/heavy bleeding for about 2-3 periods post D&C,it can be irregular also.
Avatar n tn I know my first period after my d&e took 7 weeks to show and it wasn't to painful...not compared to the miscarriages I had...(3 total - 2 natural, 1 by d&e)...I just remember it being a very heavy heavy flow.
Avatar n tn hi, i'd appreciate if any of you could answer my question... on august 21.09 i had a d&c. they had to terminate what they thought a partial molar gestation of about 7 weeks. the operation went well and i had no further complications. i spotted for about a day and that was it. i had a routine post D&C check-up U/S. the uterus was clean, except there was very little blood left inside.
Avatar f tn First period after d & c.. i got periods after 5 months and first few days light spotting then it stopped. Then again it started after 2 days. Then again it came with heavy bleeding on day time n less at night. It has been more than 10 days now. Can any1 pls tell me what shud i do?
Avatar f tn Hello, This past February 2011 I found out that I was pregnant for the first time. However, when I sent to the doctor, I told him I should be about 8 weeks, but he said I was measuring only 6. he sent me for an ultrasound and I was diagnosed with a blighted Ovum. On March 25th 2011 I had a D&C to remove the sac and the tissue. I bleed extremely heavy for about a week and then stopped.
183933 tn?1290220562 Hi there, I just had a miscarriage last month and had a D&C. That was three weeks ago. I was wondering when I should be expecting my period? I always had very regular cycles before so I'm hoping they will return to normal soon. The last few days I have had some very mild cramping and even more mild spotting. I'm not even sure I can even call it spotting because it has been one teeny tiny spot a day. I don't think it's my period, but more of the light bleeding after the D&C.
569725 tn?1226551211 I have been with hubby to be for just over a year, we have been trying to get pregnant and was having no luck. Then my periods stopped, for 6 months i did not get my period. We thought we finally succeeded and went to the doctor. She did the test and it was negative, turns out i have Policystic Ovaries. I was devastated. Then she gives me a hormone injection and tells me i WILL get my period in about 10 to 15 days.
Avatar f tn Sorry, I missed read your post. Yes, it could be your AF!!!! It'll be out of wrack for a while. You can spot lightly then have a heavy period. I got af 5 weeks after d&c and mine was normal amount but everyone is different. Sorry again!
628735 tn?1273879377 I had a D&C 13 days ago after finding out my twins had no heartbeat. I should have been about 10 weeks but there size was only 8 1/2 weeks. after going to the OB 9 days after the surgery because of lower abdominal pain he said there was no infection and that there shouldn't be any pain. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced lower abdominal pain after a D&C for longer than expected?
501796 tn?1253331994 I had a D&C done one tuesday due to a sac but no embryo. I was 11wks 4 days. After my D&C i had no cramps and technically no bleeding. I ended bleeding that night. But it was not heavy it was very light. But tday i started to lightly bleed. Nothing major though. Just very light and sticky. Oh and the day i had my D&C i had clots like ure period was ending kind. And that was only once. Is this normal what i am having??
