Hi all, I know that after m/c you get first af about 4 to 6 weeks later. I had a natural mc april 19 and now (24 days later) I am bleeding again not heavy but more than spotting,, usually my cycle is around 30 days so I am not sure what is going on. Can having a miscarriage alter your cycle that much?

Now it has slowed down to just spotting, only there when I wipe.

Hey, As far as I heard from the doctors, yes. Also I had mine exactly 28 days later, and I used to have a 30 day cycle. The doctor had told me some women have their first af as early as two weeks after mc. I would not worry too much

Hi TF! Did you figure out what was going on? As I read this I wondered if you had your levels checked to make sure they were lowering. I only ask because the first bleed I had, I thought was af, it wasn't. I had my levels checked and they were still not negative, so my bleeding, though weeks later, was residual bleeding not af. Just thought I would share my experience a little to see if it was of any help. Best wishes for you and sorry for your loss.

Hi, Really sorry to hear about your loss I know how hard it is to go to the bathroom a be comstantly reminded of whats happened, its hard.I missed carried in feb and my cycle stayed exactly the same. I was having a 28 day cycle while taking the pill. Stopped taking that to start trying and fell immediately, I then experienced slight cramps around about 5 weeks but pregnancy carried on then started to bleed another 28 days later, it seems that when I cramped that may have been the time i would have a cycle then when I missed carreid the next. I bleed for 10 days after then had my next period at exactly 28 days from the first day of the bleed. I have remained regular had one more period and am now pregnant, 5 1/2 weeks. I still test + for a week after finishing bleeding but my cycle remained exactly the same. I thinks its down to the individual really. Good luck if the plan is to try again I will be thinking of

Yes, that is perfectly normal. I have had two miscarriages. The first one it took me 6 weeks to have AF but the 2nd one was only 25 days later.

Hi, thanks for the responses. Not sure yet what is going on. My levels dropped really quick when I miscarried, the day after they were down to 4-so that wouldn't be the problem. After posting this thread, the bleeding stopped and turned to spotting-very light pink and then turned brown-so I am hoping that it may have been implantaion stopping. (Dr. said it was safe to try right away again). I don't usually test positive until at least 8 to 10 weeks ( or later)-so I am still waiting.

forgot to add, have an appointment with Dr. on the 30th.

Hiya, Hope it all goes well with the doc... GOOD LUCK!!! xxx


suzzieq - May 19

TF, thats good your levels went down so fast. So did this bleeding last only throughout the day? Good luck with your doc apt.!!


tf - May 19

the bleeding didn't even last a full day -not getting my hopes up yet though.


suzzieq - May 19

Tf, Very best luck to you!! Keep us updated after the doc apt =:)

I had a m/c in April and it has been 39 days and I should have started af Sun. and nothing yet. I am wondering if this is normal? Shouldn't I have started by now? My cycles were long like 34-36 days, but Sun. was 36 and no af yet. Please tell me what you all think. Thanks!!

Hi, sorry it took so long to answer, I move and didn't have access to computer until now, When I had my appointment, the Dr. said that my uterus was down to it's normal size and gave me pills to take if I didn't get af within a week. I got af on sat, day 47 of cycle, I have never had a cycle that long, so I guess a miscarriage can really screw up your cycle for the first one anyway. so now I am on day 5 and gonna be trying again.

tf- I finally got af too. It as cd 40 and that was 4 days later than usual. It was a pretty rough period too. But now it is over and we are going to be trying too. I am also going to be starting to try to lose some weight too. I think it is safe to do both as long as you are just eating better and not starving yourself or anything. I have got to cut down on the sweets. It is my comfort food. :) Well we are off to take my niece to see Over The Hedge at the movies. She graduated Kindergarten this year and we are celebrating. I will check in later. :) -Cindy
