First Period After a Loss

Hello ladies. 

First off, so sorry for all the losses (I hope you get your rainbow baby soon) but I was just wondering, how was your first period after you miscarried? I miscarried at 6 weeks but it only measured at 5weeks and exactly a month after, I thought it would be really heavy but I only spotted, and when I would wake up in the morning there was nothing on my pad. I have never experienced this before. The spotting only lasted 3 days. Me and my DH have been having sex soon after the bleed from the miscarriage ended but why was I only spotting? I thought it would be regular AF... I was cramping a bit before it came down, and I'm still cramping a little bit, NOTHING like PMS. I don't know what's going on here... I can't be pregnant so soon right?? Any thoughts? Anything will help...

    RE says the low egg count is likely causing my recurrent pregnancy loss. Less eggs results in more aneuploidy.

  • Thanks for replying! Sorry for your loss...
    I don't know why that happens...It's so confusing! I started cramping now just like before I found out I was pregnant..I wonder!
  • So sorry for your loss! I just went through this a week ago! Miscarried at 9 weeks, baby was 6 weeks 1 day. I chose to naturally let the baby pass. Baby passed at 10 weeks. 4 weeks later I hade a very light period. Thought I was pregnant but just had blood work done and it was negative. My doctor said that it's not abnormal to have a light period after a miscarriage.
