How Long Should The Bleeding Last

I thought my bleeding had stopped, but turns out it didnt. I started light spotting on the 20th of Feb and turned heavier and tapered off on the 5th of March. I thought that was the end of it since my last miscarriage stopped bleeding and then no more blood. Now today it started again not heavy or cramping but still bleeding and I did see a clot. Should it last this long? Its been a little over 2 weeks.. and I was about 6-7 weeks pregnant. thanks

What you described sounds okay and even somewhat normal. If the bleeding continues for weeks though, or is really really heavy then you may need to have a D&C done to make sure all of the tissue has pa__sed. My last m/c I was at just over 7 weeks and I only bleed for about a week (like a really heavy period), but I actually went into "labor" for a few hours and ended up pa__sing the baby and a lot of the uterine lining at that pt. I think the fact that I had labor and lost a lot of the tissue at that time helped shorten the length of time I bleed overall. My first m/c, prior to the last one, I was actually only about 4-5 weeks and I bleed for a total of about 15 days over ~ 17 day period. It stopped twice, and then started back up again. I never had any type of labor w/ that m/c just bad cramping similar to strong menstrual cramps. As I said, what your describing doesn't sound like an excessive amount of bleeding or time, but if it continues for another couple weeks or the bleeding goes back to being heavy, call your doc and double check everything w/ them. Good luck and I'm sorry for your loss. HUGS

Ella, sorry for your loss... have you had your HCG levels checked? You should follow it to <2, and if it doesnt go down, then you will need a d&c. If it continues tomorrow..call your doc!!!
