Hi
I had an Erpc last Wednesday.
I am still having some bleeding but is more brown now and only there when I go to the toilet not touching my pad atall...
When I get up of the chair and sit down I get a sharp pain from time to time... it's coming and going... I also find if I need a number 2 the pain comes aswell... did anyone else have this x

Yes I did. I had odd pains like that for a week r two. My GP.said all normal. Uterus shrinking back into size and would b bruised from procedure. I found my toilet habits were a little off for a few weeks. Going from constipated to running constantly.

Hi Charlotte1990, sorry to hear you've had an erpc. I too had one in October 2015 and yes, I remember about a week later having a pain in my kind of lower belly. It lasted on and off for a day (or couple of days), but it was worse on the initial day it happened. I remember thinking if it went on for much longer, I'd call the EP unit, but luckily it subsided so clearly wasn't anything to worry about but certainly worried me at the time!
Wishing you a speedy recovery and best wishes. flowers

Hi,
I had an erpc the same day as you. I am really sorry for what you are going through. I have also experienced some pain (mild) on and off, even though the bleeding has now completely stopped, and have also noticed it when going to the toilet. I wondered if it was just because I'm acutely aware of everything I'm feeling in that area at the moment and whether normally I would just ignore that kind of discomfort. I think it is normal... Hoping that you have a quick recovery, look after yourself.

Thank you my bleeding has not stopped.. no more sanitary towels for me!
Really sorry you have all gone through this. My pain is not as often now but coming and going will keep an eye on it just hope it's not an infection...
Can I ask you all a question have any of you thought or are trying again for another baby... I'm thinking to wait till after my first period and then try. it took us 8 months of trying for the baby I recently lost and I don't want to wait that long this time especially as they say you are more fertile after a miscarriage... hope I am physically and mentally ready by then too... otherwise we will wait... Haven't had intercourse for about 8 weeks either as I was worried and then started bleeding tried last night and it just didn't feel right thought I would feel better but ended up just breaking down... sad

Hi Charlotte1990, brilliant you've stopped bleeding honey. If this is your first loss (and my heart goes out to you) then I'd say get back on the horse as soon as you and Mr are ready! I had exactly same as you, waited 8/9 months to try again after my first loss, then fell pregnant again, then lost that one then a month later tried again and unfortunately lost that one (only a week ago) sad And im still going to try again although I am now also going to see a gyneo in couple weeks to get his go ahead beforehand i hope. You can check out my recent thread on MN if you like, it's titled "3 Failed Pregnancies Aged 41 and Not Yet a Mum".
Not sure of your age but it certainly gets more difficult as you get older.
Wishing you all the best in whatever your decisions are and try and stay positive x flowers

Hi.
I already have a son who is 4 and I am 26.
I was on contraception up until April last year then decided to try for our second... hoping it won't take as long this time. Aww I'm sad you have had 3 miscarriages must be so hard xx

Lou1791 Sun 24-Jan-16 20:59:21

At the moment, I'm not ready to try again. I'm still waiting to find out if my miscarriage was as a result of a molar pregnancy so it will depend on that. If we get the all clear I would like to try again soon but this experience has somewhat put me off so will wait a month or so to see how I feel about it. I am grateful that I am young (24)so I don't feel that pressure so much. I don't know how anyone has the strength to go through this more than once so my thoughts and prayers are with all of you brave women who have.

Aww fingers crossed it isn't that.
I am thinking to wait till after my first normal period so about 6weeks time... I hope I fall quick sad and I agree really hope I don't ever have to go through this pain and upset again, I think I will be so worried next time round but going to have to try and think positive. Feel so sad for women who have gone through this let alone more than once. x
