Re: how does the body works after MC

  • I'm so sorry to hear about your loss.  I hope you area able to find the support you need here.  This is an excellent group of women who have all, unfortunately suffered a loss as well, so we know how you're feeling.

    As for AF, it's hard to say.  I think it's different for everyone.  Some people get it about four weeks later, others won't see AF show her ugliness until seven or eight weeks later.

    For me, I got my first AF at about five weeks post loss, though I bled and spotted for about four weeks following my natural mc.  After that, AF was totally unpredictable.  Anywhere from 21 - 29 days in the four months that followed.  Some people's systems are able to work their way back to normal shortly after a loss, others take some time before becoming regular again.

  • I'm sorry for your loss. Welcome to the board. Please check out our TTCAL Blog, which has a ton of information in it, and may even answer your question a little better. Everyones body is different, and because of that, it is not possible to give you an answer. All I know is that it took me about 5 weeks, I think for me to get my period after my mc. Good luck!

  • I had a D&E - AF came to visit exactly 5 weeks to the day after my D&E.
  • I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope you are able to find some support and answers here. For me I think it took about 4 weeks after natural m/c, but it's different for everyone. Have you talked to your doctor about it?
  • I'm sorry about your loss and welcome to the board. We have a TTCAL blog that can answer a lot of your questions. The link is in the bottom of my siggy.

    Every woman is different, but it took 8 wks after my d&c for AF to show.

  • I am sorry for your loss. AF came for me about 7 weeks after my procedure and 5 weeks after my levels dropped to 3. My Dr. told me that if after 8 weeks and still no AF to come back and see her. I hope she comes soon for you.

  • Everyone is different, I was told 6-8 weeks.

    I am going on 8 weeks since my loss and still have yet to see AF - my OB wrote me a script for Provera, to bring on my period, which I just started yesterday *fingers crossed* it comes soon!

  • Ladies,
    I didn't see this post until now, I really appreciate your support and words of comfort, something that I didn't really find but here.

    I was so sad, enraged, dissapointed about everything: had problems at work : boss pointed her dissapointement at me because of the missed hours and the turn this lost pregnancy worked out & I wasn't thankful enough for all she did for me (a few days after my natural mc -  a woman that had 6 mc herself); I didn't feel I was well cared for at my doctors' (I guess bc they see this episodes everyday it's nothing out of the ordinary) ; my bf in order to be the strong one, was too sportive and confident about the next time, he tries his best always.

    I was totally numb, out of myself, I felt neglected, abused...

    now 4 months after I'm doing better, trying to pick up the pieces myself and carry on... life is beautiful, I have an angel, and in order to be rady for next time God willing I have to take care of myself now...

    Ladies, God Bless you and provide the best for you!

    Thank you again for your beautiful words
