How long should you/did you bleed after MC & EPRC?

MC was 5 weeks ago. 3 weeks in bleeding stopped. Then had EPRC as lining of womb still too thick apparently and now have been bleeding for 2 weeks since the op.

Should the EPRC not have removed all and the bleeding have stopped by now?

Sorry just frustrated.

sorry for your loss...i didnt bleed at all after eprc...mind you i didnt bleed at all for the whole 8 months after apart from a few days spotting. I would maybe give the doctors a call as you should only experience light bleeding after the op and only for a few days? I hope you get some answers soon x

Is the bleeding heavy or are you having cramps? If so see GP asap

Did they give you ABs after the ERPC?

With my 2nd ERPC I bleed for ages but it was very light and very on and off
I had a follow up gynae appt and they seemed to think all was well

Any concerns go see your GP

I bled for 6 days after ERPC, then stopped, then started again a couple of days later and bled lightly for another week or so iirc.

I bled for 3 weeks after the ERPC. I was 17 weeks pregnant when I lost the baby. If you are concerned, talk to your GP and ask to be referred for a scan, they will check that everything is OK. In my case the ERPC did remove everything it needed to remove (including the placenta), but I still bled for 3 weeks. A scan showed that the lining of the womb was normal, so it's not abnormal to bleed for a while after an ERPC even if it has dealt with everything.
I am sorry for your loss - it's hard when the medical side gets protracted like that. Hope you get better soon. x
