Miscarriage/pregnancy loss

Miscarriage a month ago - still bleeding?

I had a MMC in early June and opted for medical management on the 15th of June. Two weeks later, had quite a bit more "come away" unexpectedly at work and then at the scan, turned out I had a little bit of retained product (under 15mm) which is not enough to warrant a D&C. The constulant did a test and it was negative so am reassured that it's mostly ok. However, I am still bleeding - sometimes old blood, sometimes red. How much longer does this go on for? Would have had a period "due" last week, so maybe this was it? Is this normal? Phoned MW today and she said it can last for up to 6 weeks but to go to the GP if it went longer than this. Is that true?

Sorry about your loss. Sorry I can't give you facts but my midwife and doctor have told me exactly the same as you have been told.
I had late miscarriage and delivered my baby on 14 June and was still bleeding up to a week ago and just started my normal period today. X

Webminx I'm not too bad thanks. Having the worse period ever though but was expecting that.
Hope your ok and your bleeding ends soon xx
