Hi, i suffered a missed miscarriage 2.5 weeks ago and after my ERPC i had bleeding for about 6 days. This was bright red and quite heavy. I then stopped bleeding for 3/4 days which was great but now i have been bleeding again. This time it is more dark and not as heavy. Could this be a normal period? I just want to know as i was told not to use tampons until my period returned but i was also told that i could bleed for 14 days after the MC. Im now confused and hate using sanitary towels!

Advice welcome, thanks

i would say it is prob some bleeding from the m/c

i am not and expert or a doctor though

all 3 of my m/c had brown bleeding for a while,

it stopped and started for up to 3 weeks

have you had a neg pg test yet?

Hi, same with me afte 3 mmc and all followed by ERPC, bleeding on and off for about 3 weeks. Period always arrived 4 to 5 weeks after. Just play it safe using sanitary towels I would say. I know its horrible but better than an infection. Keep your chin up. sx

Thanks Ladies, it seems to have stopped again now but it may be back tomrrow!

Justjules, i havent tested since i found out about the MC. Is this something i should do, if so can i ask why? Ive not heard of that before.

just to make sure your hcg (pregnancy hormones) have dropped to zero,

if they have not dropped you will still test positive,

it is to make sure everything has been passed,

also, it has unlikely you will have a period until the levels have dropped,

it can take up to a few weeks for the levels to drop again,
