Not sure if this is a discussion or question -
Had a miscarriage around week 10 and found out baby stopped developing around week 8. We opted for a d&c mostly for peace of mind but now I'm worried it's caused the opposite.
Finally had 1st period 8+ weeks after d&c. It was about 3 days of spotting, mostly rusty brown blood. Dr said don't worry yet. My 2nd period has just started, on time and in line with my past cycles, but I'm seeing the same dark brown and rusty blood. Also noticing that my cramps are way worse than they've ever been (1st & 2nd cycle) and going to the bathroom is painful (feeling pressure combined with some constipation).
Am I going crazy? I notice others concerned with lengths of cycle post MC, but I'm curious about experience with the actual menstruation. Was the bleeding the same as pre-MC after the 1st post-MC cycle? Some of my symptoms seem like it could be Asherman's Syndrome. How many cycles before I visit the OB to find out?
