Hey, I'm going mental... I have not had AF since my Miscarriage and D&C on 19th Dec! Its now been 3 months or 13 weeks but who's counting... I have been checked for Asherman's Syndrome and its not but I'm still so confused on what on earth is wrong with me? Has anyone got any ideas? PLEASE HELP

I'm right there with you. I had a D&C October 18th '06 and hadn't gotten AF by the end of December. My hCG levels were still at 78, and an ultrasound confirmed that I had tissue remaining from the first procedure. I ended up having a second D&C on January 4 and here it is ten weeks later and no AF again! (My hCG didn't fall to 2 until February 22). My only thought would be to check with your doctor to rule out any other problems and see if they can give you something to get your cycle back on track. If mine doesn't show up in the next two weeks, that's what I'll be doing! Good luck!

I'm in that waiting spot right with you ladies. I had my D&E on jan 24th and still no AF. I'm going to wait until the end of this month and then call my dr.

Thanks Terri1 and 1mom. I have booked an apnt with another Ob to get a second opinion. I can't wait any longer its driving me mental.... and I have no idea whats going on. I really can't see how this could be stress either! I didn't have any ultrasound or hCG levels tested so going to ask for those done. I tell you this is the longest 13 weeks ever!!! Good Luck to you both and keep me updated

It seems like it would be the standard thing to do to check our hCG levels, but mine weren't checked at all after my first D&C. If I would have known to even ask about it, it would have saved me some frustration the first time! I hope this doctor finds it is something that is easily remedied so you can move on. Let us know how it goes!

Hi Terrie, I will do for sure I'm going on Tesday so will let you know. How you going? Can I ask why your waiting for 12 weeks and not going back now?


Terri1 - March 15

The only reason I'm not going back now is that I think I may have ovulated last week....brown spotting for a couple of days with bloating, etc....I never really paid attention to any of this before my miscarriage, so I'm not really sure. Anyways, if it was, AF should arrive in the next two weeks. I've been told that it can take up to 14 weeks for a normal cycle to return, so I'm trying to be patient, especially since I know that my hCG finally dropped. I also feel like I'm bothering the doctor.....I know I shouldn't feel that way, but I do. Was this your first pregnancy? it was for me, and I feel so stupid that I didn't know any of this information before!


tryingnada - March 16

Hi what is your HGC level? Mine is under 2 ...? So not sure if I need an exact number or whats going on? I'm so like you and never knew when I was ovulating or didn't know my body to well and yes this is my first Pregnancy.. well was? I feel like I'm annoying the doc to so thats why I feel I need to go to another one to see if he stuffed me up. I so know what you mean bless!


tryingnada - March 16

Sorry so how long after your levels fall to 2 should you finally get AF?


Terri1 - March 16

All I know is that they said I didn't need to be tested any more once they reached 2, which mine did in February. I've read that ovulation can occur with any number under 5, and it can take two to four weeks once it hits those seems like no one really knows much of anything which makes me more crazy! I'm still trying to decide whether or not to go to a new doctor or call mine. I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way. It helps to know I'm not completely losing it! I keep thinking that maybe it is stress that is causing this, but I don't know how to stop it.

Hi Terri1 I'm going to wish you the best of luck and not going to search on this site. Itd making me more paranoid so going to try and get on with things and not think about it. Honestly you will be ok and just keep your chin up and do what your heart tells you. believe in yourself and all the best


1mom - March 18

HI again ladies. Well still no AF for me and it's been 53 days i believe. So i'm waiting until the end of the month and then i will give my Dr a ring ah ding. Goodluck to you ladies.


Terri1 - March 19

1mom....sounds like we'll be calling about the same time unless something happens! Day 74 and counting! I'm sending good thoughts your way and to tryingnada as well.


tryingnada - March 19

Girls you will never believe what I got..... yep AF 99 days later.... 3 months ...14 weeks so keep the faith and I know how long and hard it is... but if you are ever in doubt go get a second opinion my thoughts are with you both but its long journey so trust yourself as life is to short GOOD LUCK


Terri1 - March 19

Yay!!! I'm so happy that you can start to move on. Thanks for your support these last few days, and I hope everything goes well for you in the future!


1mom - March 19

Well add another day to the count. Still no AF for me. tryingnada===goodluck and thanks for the support. Well Terri1 i guess it's you and me now. I did have cramping today but no such luck. Goodluck to you.


Terri1 - March 20

I guess it's just wait and see for us now. I'm trying to not think about it all so much.......maybe that will help things along. I've looked into some different herbal teas and such to try to speed things along, but I'm afraid to try anything.
