Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

light period?

Hi ladies,
just curious... I got my first period after the m/c last week, but I had no cramping, which is unusual for me. Plus, the flow was light and only lasted about 3 days (usually lasts 6 days).
Anyone else have very light periods after their m/c?

Re: light period?

  • I am having the exact opposite...heaviest period and cramping ... I'm happy for AF.. but jeez!
  • I think I am on the tail end of my period post m/c (but it also could be remnants of my m/c too) -- but if it is my period, I had light normal AF cramping and only about three days of moderate bleeding, three of light -- the rest have been spotting days.  This has been going on for 9 days though.  I am not sure there is a real answer that any of us can give.  Heres to being optimistic that it is though!

  • mine were super light after my first two miscarriages.  It just takes a while to get back to normal.

  • It seems like it varies for everyone.  I am just finishing up my first AF since m/c, and it was pretty close to normal.  I had a very early loss, at 5w3d, so that may make a difference.
    DD1 is 3, DD2 is 1.
  • I am having my frist AF right now, and its way heavier and is clotty (which my AF never are).  But then again this is the first period I've had off BCP in 8 years, so mabye this is how it is supposed to be.  Who knows.

  • My AF post m/c was very light -- less than 3 days (I'm usually 3-4 days), and no other major symptoms. It was so light I asked on this board, others and even my MD if it really was my cycle returning -- and it was!
