I wrote a post previously on this but feel like I might of went into too much detail and people may of been bored and not wanted to read so I decided I'd make a shorter one and hopefully get some more answers
basically I miscarried on march 17th at 5 weeks, 3 days after this I had a scan to confirm I had miscarried, however it was "incomplete" meaning the sack had gone but I was told there would be more bleeding and passing clots. the bleeding carried on for a week but I didn't see any noticeable clots and then it stopped. 2 weeks later I had an appointment where they took a test that said negative (im not 100% on this, as I took one the same day that said positive) so they gave me the all clear and didnt do any scans and told me everything was okay. 2 days ago (27 days after the start of my miscarriage and 20 days since the end of it) i started bleeding with some heavy cramps which I thought was a period but im unsure. I made a doctors appointment where he asked me if I had any clots and I said no because at this point I didn't so he came to the conclusion it was a period. Now for the past 2 days I have had some large clots every time I go to the toilet which Id say were worse than the miscarriage. Not sure what I should do as I've already been to the doctors but it's got worse since? ANY advice would be helpful :)

Do you feel unwell?
Is there a bad smell or discharge?
Do you have a temperature?
Do you have pain?
Is there heavy bleeding as well as clots?

I don't feel unwell, no bad smell or discharge, no temperature. I had some pain yesterday and the day before, like bad cramping which I took pain killers for, but not today. The bleeding isn't necessarily heavy, however when I go to the toilet, that is when it's at its worst, I'm not sure if it's a coincidence as I haven't really been out much since it started, but heavy bleeding and clots seem to come out when I go to the toilet. Other than that the bleeding isn't too bad

That sounds encouraging.
Do you have a walk in centre or urgent care centre near you?
I would recommend getting checked out today. Just to be reassured that this is nothing untoward.
All the best xx
