TTC After a Loss

Guess it's time to call the OB

I'm 6 weeks post-D&C and still no AF, so based on the timeline my OB gave, I have to call her today. I'm not sure where we go from here. Crying WHY does this have to be so hard?! Ugh. Feeling defeated.

  • Aw, I'm sorry.

    This happened to me with my D&Cs and it's really common.  They might want to do some blood work and an ultrasound to figure out if you have ovulated or might soon.  It could also take a little longer, even though it sucks.  Your body has to be ready to ovulate again, and sometimes that doesn't happen as soon as we would hope it would.

    ((hugs))  It'll be okay, but it's also okay to feel sad about it.

  • I'm so sorry. I wish that this road were easier, at least parts of it. It's so frustrating when our bodies don't work like they should. Sending you ((hugs)) and hopefully AF will show up once you do call your OB.

  • My dr said if I hadn't started AF in 6 weeks to POAS and call him either way. Have you POAS yet to make sure you aren't pregnant? I would recommend that first and then call.

  • I'm sorry. I know that the first AF is much anticipated. It may give you hope to know my AF came 6 weeks and 2 days after D&C and was considered well within the "normal" range. It's a good idea to call the physician to come up with a plan and ease your mind.

  • Thank you all for your kind words and encouragement. It does help to know that others have been in the same situation before and it turned out ok. It's just so hard to stay hopeful and optimistic someitmes.

    And Jeni - yes, I POAS on Sat. BFFN. Not that I was expecting any different as we are TTA until AF comes.

  • I'm so sorry--I know how hard the wait can be. It's actually great that your doctor is proactively seeing you at 6 weeks; many OBs wait until 7-8 weeks to even let you make an appointment. Most likely, she'll have you POAS (just for "safety"), then do a brief exam before prescribing Provera or Prometrium. Either of those mimic the hormones in the latter half of your cycle and induce a "withdrawal bleed" when you stop the pills (usually after 10 days). If you have any other questions, feel free to ask--I've been through the Provera thing twice!

  • I'm at six weeks too, and no AF yet. 

    I honestly don't really trust my doctor to tell me what's up. Pre m/c my cycles were ridiculously long and irregular, and my doctor never really paid attention to it. He also never understood why I would chart and did not support my husband and I's wishes to use NFP instead of BC. I honestly trust my chart more than my doctor.

    I'm going to keep charting and wait two more weeks before calling. But that is just me. If you trust your doc, you should call. If nothing else, it will give you some peace of mind to have a plan.

    I'm sorry this is happening to you. It is so frustrating to feel so wonky afterward.

  • I am 8 weeks post d&c today and still no period. I did have some painful cramping last week and went in for an ultrasound and found out I did ovulate (my chart also told me I did) so now I wait to see what happens in the next week. If AF or BFP is not here next week I will start meds to get my flow going. Good Luck.

  • It's not that uncommon for your cycles to be wonky after a D&C, it's very disruptive to your system. I hope your OB can help you get back on track.
