TTC After a Loss

New here

I had a D&C on sept 5th and my first period after that was October 25th. I know that your cycle length can change after the D&C so I have no idea when to expect my next period. This is very frustrating not knowing what is going on in my body. So it's been 35 days since my last period, but before the procedure I had 39 day cycles. My question is, ever since March and getting off the pill I have kept track of periods, cycle length, spotting, ect. Now, when I was pregnant I had spotting about two weeks after my period. Well, I had spotting two weeks after this past period... So I'm wondering if maybe it is a pattern, or just coincidence? It's of course still a bit early to take a test as if I have missed a period I've only missed maybe a day or so.. Thoughts on that?

Re: New here

  • I'm confused as to what you are asking.  Were you trying this cycle and are you asking when to test?  None of us will know that so just take a test every few days if that's what you're wondering.  If you're asking if spotting is normal in cycles after a m/c I have had spotting in cycles after CPs and my D&C but if you're concerned about it you might want to call your doctor.

  • thank you for the responses. I was asking if the spotting with my last pregnancy was a pattern with the spotting with this cycle, and maybe I am pregnant again.
  • I'm sorry for your loss. Changes in your cycle are very normal after a d&c. There is really no way for anyone to tell you what could be causing your spotting. It could just be your body still sorting itself out.  I would continue to keep track and see if it happens again next month, or test at the end of this cycle.

    This is really not the board to ask if you could be pregnant though. It is posted at the top of the page not to ask that here, as well as in the Blog linked at the top.

    I'm very sorry. I'm new to this board and going through a very frustrating time right now so I wasn't paying that much attention.
