I had a natural m/c last Tuesday. Because of hemorrhaging I only bleed for 5 days. After waiting another 5 days I thought I was ready to sleep with DH. We took it slow and shallow. Now 2 days later I'm still very sore/raw and I have brown sludge when I wipe. I don't know if it was just to soon, to dry (no lubrication), or I've developed an infection. I was just wondering if any of you can share your thoughts/stories? I don't go back to the Dr. for 5 more days.
I'm sorry for your loss After my D&C my doctor also had me on pelvic rest for 2 weeks. I think my bleeding lasted for about that long as well. It was probably just a little too soon for DTD. I'd stop doing that until your next dr visit when you can ask him about it.
my doc did not put me on pelvic rest, but she might have forgotten. I actually dont remember when we dtd after the d&c. It might have been just over a week, but Im not sure. Im sorry Im not much help! Im so sorry for your loss.
it doesn't sound like an infection. I slept wiht my DH about 7 days after my m/c as I had stopped bleeding but I started spotting again right after. I think it's because everything is still recovering from the loss, I would give it a few days, if it doesn't clear up go and see your doc
Hi. I'm a lurker; I had a D&C last Thursday, but before that I had that brownish-sludge for about 2 weeks. After the first week of bleeding I thought my miscarriage was over, about 10 days after I found out I had m/c I DTD with my hubby; It's probably just still from the miscarriage. I would stop bleeding for up to 4 days and then start again....
I ended up having to have a D&C because my body wouldn't complete the process and my HCG's were slowly going back up...
I'd wait until you see your doc.
Are your hcg levels back down yet?
