This is my first period since the loss. I misscarried naturally and the doctor confirmed my uterus had completely emptied. But now my period symptoms are way more severe than I've ever had before. Cramps and back pain more severe. Cramps to the point that my abdomen is even slightly tender. Pain doesn't seem bad enough that I need to contact a doctor, but I was just curious if anyone has had a similar experience?
Re: First period after loss, is it normal for it to be worse than normal?
I recommend temping... even if you were 28 days regular before, you may not be anywhere near that now, or at least not for several months. Temping is the only way to really know if you ovulated and if your post-MC cycles are really 'late' or if they're just being wacky because you O'd later than usual. Temping helped and gave me a lot of peace of mind post-MC.
I got my next period on 9/25 and have had light-medium bleeding with some clotting since 9/25 (13 days)....is that normal? I usually have a 34 day cycle with 2 days of med-heavy bleed with 2-3 of spotting....

I know you said you had a CP, how far along were you? Did they track your betas down to 0? (Sometimes they do this for CPs and sometimes not). If you start to be concerned by the amount of bleeding or if it just keeps going and doesnt seem to end, you could call your doctor. They could send you for a beta test if you didnt have them to ensure hcg is down below 5 (not Pg) to ensure your body doesnt still think its PG and still trying to MC. But as long as the bleeding isnt too heavy, I probably wouldn't be too concerned for several more days or a week.
