1st regular AF after MC

I am on the heels of my 1st AF after having a MC and I feel like a wreck!  Physically, my symptoms are terrible. Emotionally, I am a disaster.  I hardly recognize myself and despite feeling improved from the devastating MC, I am shattered again.  It feels really fresh again and is hard to cope.  Is it hormones?  Has anyone else had a similar 1st post MC AF?

Re: 1st regular AF after MC

  • I'm sorry you're having a hard time.  I am still waiting for AF after my MC...it will be 8 weeks Monday.  Sorry I don't have any advice for you but I hope it gets better.

  • I personally can't wait for my AF to arrive.  It will be 5 weeks on Monday since my m/c.  I can understand why you are upset but look at it as your body is returning to normal.  I hope you feel better.  ((hugs))

  • I'm having mixed feelings about AF returning, too.  On one hand, I can't wait for it to get here so we can move forward with TTC again.  But on the other hand, it is just so depressing for it to arrive, knowing that I shouldn't be having one if I was still pregnant.

    Hormones make me super emotional, so I'm sure I'll be a crying mess when it shows.

    I'm sorry you are having a tough time.

    I am finishing my first AF after MC, too.  I have been an emotional wreck.  Yesterday I was bleeding through a tampon every hour for 5 hours straight-- I finally got a hold of a nurse at my doctor's office and she told me to take motrin to slow the bleeding.  Well after I took it my bleeding completely stopped.  Totally. Gone.  Started back up again today full force, but not as bad as yesterday.

     It has been super emotional for me and I have been really irritable and a little depressed.  I would love to know if it is hormones or if I am just losing my sanity.  I was looking forward to AF: like pp said, I was thinking it would be a sign my body was returning to normal.  And I am excited to know where my body is at physically, but it has been so hard.  It is a reminder that I am not where I hoped to be at this time-- and a reminder of the horrible mc I went through.

    I hope this all gets easier.....
