Is this right? I'm not sure what to expect (m/c ment)

I know a lot of you ladies have been through m/cs and will be able to give me some advice!!

I had my m/c 5 weeks ago. It was pretty uneventful and everything thing went well (well, as wel as it can go loosing your baby) and after 3/4 days I stopped bleeding. Then 2 weeks later I had a scan which showed everything was fine with me.

Now I feel like AF is here and I've been spotting for over 24hrs but she isn't comming with full force like she normally does! I have done a pg test just to make sure and its neg.

Did anyone else have weird AFs after m/c? Thank you for any help!!

Oh man, have you read my threads? LOL I m/c at 15 weeks + and I thought AF was here at about 4 weeks after my m/c. It was lighter and shorter than normal, stopped for two days, then more bleeding for the next ten days. So weird.

My friend has had three m/c 4 weeks, 6 weeks, 10 weeks and each time 28 days later she had a/f. Everyone is different I guess, but I am guessing yours is A/F and normal proably wont return until another period.

BABY MENTIONED

I had a new normal after each one of my children, so I imagine normal is up for a change.

Haven't had AF yet this time but last time it took a couple cycles to get back to normal

I had weird ones for about 2 or 3 months after mine, despite having gone on the pill.

Thank you ladies, that all really helpful. I guess what is normal before and what will be normal now will be different!!

After every pregnancy, AF can change a lot. Sometimes it's a temporary change, but like the PP mentioned, sometimes it just becomes your new normal.

I have not had a m/c. I just wanted to say that I hope that your body doesn't take forever to straighten itself back out.

It's been 5 months since my loss at 10 weeks and AF still isn't right. Each month is different and they're getting longer and longer. I finally went back to my OB so we'll see what's up. Sorry you're going through this. Good luck.
