I had an early miscarriage just over 4 weeks ago, for the past week I've felt as if I was getting my period but no bledding. I'm feeling rotten today, really feel as if I have got af but nothing's coming out - sorry if tmi! How long does it take for your period to come back after a mc?

Hi ladies. I just wanted to start by saying im really sorry for you losses. I had an early mc (at 6/7wks) in august this year and it took exactly 4 weeks for my AF to return. My cycle is normaly 28 days. Hope this helps. x

hello all,

I'm in the same boat too, had my mc about 2 weeks ago now. I've done some reading on this and unfortunately there is no clear answer, some sites say that it can be as quick as 4 weeks and others say it can be 6 - 7 weeks. I suppose it depends on how quickly your body goes back to normal. Seeing as though we all had early mcs then hopefully that will mean we go back to normal quite quickly. I hope so because I keen to get cracking again!!

Well after remembering back to being pg with dd I remembered having period like pains & feeling like af coming but nothing. Have done a pg test & got a bfp. Very surprised/pleased but don't quite believe it yet, think I will be testing a few times nxt wk to be sure before I become convinced. I did do a preg test after mc just to confirm & that was neg so does seem like I am but somehow does seem to good to be true so soon after mc. Now trying not to think about mc!

I will be watching this thread, with interest, as currently going through a m/c and its all new to me to be honest, last time 14 years ago nobody seemed to give a hoot, now the hospital want me there every other day!!!!!
I hope you are all well.....

I had a miscarriage at 12 weeks, and got my period 4 weeks later. It was more painful and heavier than normal, but not too different otherwise.

hi all you. I miscarried at 11-12 weeks- it was a missed mc. I had first period one month after my miscarraige in august. it was light- - wasnt painfull- - but lasted longer than my usual heavy 3-4 day period. I got my 2nd one this month too- - and its really werid- - i only spoted a little for a week- - then suddenly its gone heavy again. so my periods seem to be lasting longer. I just dont know now when to try again. any tips anyone?? i dont even know when is the best time to try again - my cycle is all over the place! any tips anyone
