Aunt Flo after m/c question- Update

Hi Ladies- I m/c on November 14th. I posted here and must thank you all once again for all of your kind words and support during that terrible time. I must say that I am doing much much better emotionally- still having some anxiety about TTC again but just enjoying being married for the time being.

My question is about my cycle which usually starts every 25 days. I felt myself ovulate (or at least I think I did) about 13 days after the m/c. I have terrible PMS (and have for about a week now) but no sign of Aunt Flo. I'm now at 29 days since the m/c. Is it normal to go a little longer before your first cycle? I'm starting to get worried that something is wrong.

Thanks in advance!


Update: Well she arrived today so I am relieved that I am back on track. Now I have to make the decision of whether or not to TTC again or wait. Thanks again for all your help and support. After the m/c all I kept saying is I only want to talk to or be around other women who know how i feel. It was a great release to "unload" on here. You are truly a group of wonderful people. I guess I'll make my way (slowly) to the TTC after a loss boards.

I think it is normal to go longer on your first cycle. It takes a while for your body to get back to normal. My first cycle after my latest loss was 38 days. My current cycle started on Nov. 14 (so we're on the same day) and I am still waiting for AF. Hopefully my cycles aren't going to stay at 38 days...but I'll have to wait and see.

It can really vary alot after a miscarriage, everyone is different.

After my first mc it took 45 days for AF to show up....this time I THOUGHT it had only taken 23 days because I started spotting but Ive had 2 weeks of spotting and no AF so I guess that counts as Im still waiting!!

Hopefully after a cycle or two it will return to what it was before.

I just have to agree with the other ladies. The guidelines are 4-6 weeks after a m/c is when AF will return.

I'm pleased to hear you're doing alright sweetie. :giveflower:

I don't know the answer to your question. I just wanted to say that I am glad to hear that you are doing better.

My first period after my miscarried was 42 days. They are normal now but that is because I got on BC pills because of the horrible PMS and I am not ready to venture the TTC again.

I hope it evens out for you soon
