Question For Those Who Had A D Amp C

Allison - August 4

Hi everyone - I had a D&C last Friday. Things went well and I have been feeling good since. I had very little bleeding and just had some light brown spotting most of this week. Well, today I have light cramps (hardly at all) and some red spotting again! I was hoping since the brown was getting so minimal, the red was long gone.. any thoughts? Has this happened to anyone? I just want this whole thing to be past me, you know? I can't imagine this is a period already!

Have you been more active than usual? That can sometimes cause bleeding. My Doc had told me to expect to bleed for two weeks. He said that was the norm. I bled on and off for amost 2 weeks exactly. Sorry to hear about your loss.

Allison, I had my d&c on June 29, a Wednesday. I had no cramping and minimal brown spotting. I left on vacation that next Sat., July2. On Sunday and Monday, I had a red spotting. I attributed it to being a little more active and a higher alt_tude perhaps. After I got home on the 4th, my spotting returned to brown and lasted two more days. I didn't have any cramping that I noticed. I think this sounds normal to me. My dr also told me two weeks for the bleeding would be normal but he expected me to have less.

I had a D&C July 7th. I bled on and off for the first week. Then I had brown spotting for about a week. It all stopped right at 2 weeks.

Thanks for your replies! I really freaked because i had next to nothing the past 2 days. I called the Dr. office and they confirmed the same thing - probably doing too much and being too active! I was lifting groceries last night and she said that probably triggered it.. especially since i had it as soon as I woke up and then it slowly tapered back to brown this afternoon. I was really getting worried! Now I am scared to do anything! Guess my husband will have to do the dishes tonight :-)

i had a d and c 2 weeks ago and had just brow spotting then it stoped for a day then i had red blood for 3 days i thought this was my period starting but was a__sured it was not . we are now trying to concive again but its hard when u dont know when u will be ovulating so i just have my fingers crossed

I'm so annoyed..I had pretty much no spotting all day - now at 5:30 pm - some red spotting again! I'm getting very annoyed.. I just want this whole experience behind me and feel normal again! I know I was more active than I should have been earlier this week (lifting things, doing some things around the house..) so maybe this is the residual effect. Sorry - just needed to vent right now!!

I had the same thing. Bled for 2 or 3 days then nothing. Then about 3 or 4 days after that I spotted red blood for a good 4 days before it finally went away. It felt like forever though...I know exactly how you feel. Today I finally got my af...yay!!!!!! 5 weeks after the d&c. I'm finally back to normal!!!!

Hi Allison - I'm glad you asked this question. I had a d&c on Wednesday morning and have barely had any spotting since until this morning ... now (Saturday morning) it's almost like I have my period. I guess that is normal bleeding after the d&c? Of course this is happening on a weekend when I can't get in touch with my doctor. It's really getting me down because the same thing happened last weekend - I started spotting over the weekend and then Monday found out that the baby had died. Sigh. Sorry, I guess I need to vent also. Sometimes I'm ok, and other times I just get so angry that this has happened.
