I miscarried in my 13th week and just started my first period after the fact (4 weeks and 4 days) I did not know where else to ask this question: Is it normal for the blood to be bright red for a period post mc? Has anyone else experienced this?

I'm not sure what you mean by "bright" red, but both times I m/c the first period was normal "fresh" red blood just like a normal period but more "clotty" It was certainly very red both times. I hope that's of some help! I am so sorry for your loss and thinking of you xxx

I'm having my 1st period now after m/c and d&c and it is very red and clotty. It is much like when I 1st started to m/c.

Thank you for your responses. This was my first pregnancy, and really I do (did) not know what to expect. I have just been having the bright red blood without any clots so far. It is a lot like the bleeding after miscarriage--just less heavy. However, I have only been bleeding for about 3-4 days so perhaps more pleasures are in store. The only reason I am concerned is that I did not actually have a d&c. By the time I got to the hospital my cervix was dilated and the on call physician just used some prongs to pull tissue (etc) out. And, I never went for an ultrasound after the fact. My doctor just said I should come back if I noticed any signs of infection--ie forget preventative medicine. Thanks again.

Did anyone have any bright red spotting prior to getting your period? If everything goes as it should, I expect my period in about two weeks. I have been having some sharp pains, but it feels more like discomfort. I don't know if this is normal or not.

Naomi, I did not have a D&C with either of my m/c I used the medication to speed up the process and m/c. If you are having your first period that is a good sign, your uterus should be clear now and ready to start rebuilding again. Both times fo rme I started next period exactly 4 weeks after. Your body is getting back to normal and preparing itself to be strong and healthy for being pregnant again soon..take care I know how hard this all is. I've been pregnant twice and m/c both times. We'll have our little ones soon xxx

Jill, you might be ovulating just now and having ovulation pains if your period is expected in 2 weeks. The spotting might be related to ovulation too but I'm not sure. I think after being through so much our bodies just need to get themselves sorted and can be a bit "tempremental" while they do! I might be wrong about pains if they persist check with your doc, but from my own experience I get ovulation pain (it helps me know when it's happening!) Get lots of rest it's a tiring time I think, and just be kind to yourself just now xxx
