Hello so basically I had a mc at the end of march this year and I had medical management in April and I bleed till about 20th may.. about 6-7 weeks I bleed for.. from june- August I didn't get a period.. on the 6th sept I had a week long period till the 13th now from October - now I haven't had a period..
I have had blood tests and it just shows one hormone is higher than the rest but doctors aren't worried! I have asked them to send me for a scan to just check everything is okay ! I'm just looking for any advice of anyone who has been through this or similar please

Do you think my body isn't fully back to normal after my mc? Or could I just be irregular? I don't really know as I was on the pill for such a long time came off December 2015 and fell pregnant straight away before mc in march!
Any advice would be great Thankyou

This is the contraception topic, and you didn't mention which method you are currently using, or intending to use shortly. I assume it's not a hormonal one - or are you waiting until a period to start one?

Because most pills take effect from 7 days even if you do not start in the early CDs, so there is no need to wait for a natural period before starting. And non-hormonal methods can be started at any time.

Did the doctors explain why their weren't worried about current bleeding, and did you get the scan referral? Are they looking for anything specific by scan, or will it be a general 'does everything look OK' one?

I am not on any form of contraceptive as I came off the birth control pill in December last year

I was basically just asking for any help on irregular periods as since September o haven't had a period xx

Try 'general health' - more traffic and won't focus on contraception as this topic does.
