Question about AF return ....

Hello Ladies

I had my M/C April 26th and since then no AF.....

my OB told me AF should be back 4 ot 6 week or let her know it is going to be 8 weeks this week...
So I just called the office and she going to call me back

how was it for you (I know every women is different) but I am just wondering....

thanks
Magali

So sorry for your loss.

I had a natural miscarriage at 5w3d. AF returned exactly 29 days after I first started miscarrying. Have they been monitoring your beta levels? I know that AF is unlikely to start again until your numbers are back at zero. My levels were at 16 the day before I started miscarrying so my cycle returned fairly quickly. I know for some women it just takes a little while longer.

I went on bcp at 8 weeks after my d&c and finally just had my first AF... it was HORRIBLE! Never had that heavy of AF before in my life and I have had some bad ones.

Thanks.. my OB told me the next AF will be "heavy" due to what is still "in there" so I am nervous about it not coming back... I am also dead tired no energy at all...
my Acupuncturist told me that she was worried about "blood deficiency" and this is why AF didn't come back because my body didn't had "enough" blood for it....

still waiting for the OB to call back....
