Sudden heavy bleed, then nothing

Has anyone had experience of very sudden vaginal bleeding (ie gushing and soaked right through underwear and jeans) which then stops, ie I clean myself up and am using pads etc but there is then no more blood or even spotting that day or following days.

It was on about day 16ish of my cycle which is usually about 26 days... we are ttc and I had a miscarriage at 8 weeks in May/June but thought things were back to normal.

It just seems really weird and I'm not sure if it could be my hormones as the m/c was quite a while ago now, not sure whether to go to GP or not really.

Yes! This happened to me recently. It was the heaviest bleed I've ever had (and I have quite heavy periods). I had lighter bleeds mid-cycle for a few months afterwards so went to the doctor. I've had a smear and a uterine scan. Both came back normal. I;m just waiting to see what the results of my blood tests are now. I suspect it might just be a hormonal blip inmy case.
