Hi all, I had ERPC for a MMC on 10th April, so 3.5 weeks ago. Didn't bleed after it until 18th April then bled for a week, so that was now 10 days ago that I stopped bleeding. Me and DH decided at the time that although we wouldn't start actively 'trying' for another baby, we wouldn't do anything to prevent conception either so have been having unprotected sex since I stopped bleeding.
Yesterday and today I've started spotting - only slightly (enough to see when I wipe after using the toilet, but nothing showing on a pad) - does this sound like my period returning, I normally have heavy periods. There's a part of me desperately hoping its implantation bleeding but I know that is unlikely - especially since I never had it in previous pregnancies
Hi Rockchick Sorry for your loss. It sounds like it could be your period. My first two periods after ERPC were both light and early. The first one I bled for 3 days (hardly any blood) then it stopped for 3 days then started again for 3 days. It's good to have at least one period before trying again, to get your body back on track.
My cycles went short after my MCs so it could be a period - also AF behaves oddly after MC in terms of heavy/light. So yes could be a period. Does your GP have a phone service or womens-nurse you could ring? They could put your mind at rest.
