Stupid AF Question — The Bump
TTC After a Loss

Stupid AF Question

When docs say that your AF should start 4-6 weeks post m/c do they mean the actual day you m/c or when you stop bleeding? I only ask because I'm now on day 12 of bleeding and I might loose my sanity if it's 4-6 weeks post completion of bleeding. I just want AF to come so I can wait my 2 cycles and get back on the horse again. Ugh!

    I believe Day 1 would be counted as the first day you started having to use a pad with your m/c.  This is all such a headache.  I am sorry for how crappy and confusing this all is.

  • Thanks ladies. I know everyone is different, but I think I just need some sort of hope that AF will possibly be starting sometime in the next month. This waiting game SUCKS!

  • With both my losses, I got AF just about 4 weeks (one 4 wks exactly (D&C)  and one 3 wks 6 days- natural m/c (from the day I passed the sac).  Everyone is different though.  Hopefully it comes on the sooner end.  Good Luck.

  • I'm sorry you're in the waiting phase.  It sucks!  Mine took 12 weeks to return and I didn't bleed much more than a week (had D&C).    Good luck.

  • I'm so sorry.  The waiting part is awful.  It took 8 weeks for me to get AF (post D&C) with my first loss, but just 30 days with my second loss.  Each loss and each person is different.  I hope AF shows this month for you.

  • I started bleeding about a week before my d&e. My doctor said it was 4-6 weeks from my d&e, not the bleeding. For me, AF was two or three days later than normal. Now it's all out of wack.
