so....I've been bleeding off and on for four days, but just lightly.
How long before things pick up??
I'm very sorry for your loss. I don't know the answer to your question exactly, but I will share what I know. I have heard that different women experience different amounts of bleeding depending on timing and circumstance.
With my recent m/c, I bled heavily for a day and then lightly for a week. My OB thought that was the m/c, but bloodwork revealed otherwise and I had to have a D&C (and I bled for a week after that, too). So, I guess what I am saying is, only bloodwork can reveal the extent to which your m/c is progressing. Are you scheduled to have bloodwork in the near future?
Best of luck with everything; sending you support at this tough time.
Everyone is different, but for me, once they induced the m/c, I bled heavily for a couple days, then light for what seemed like weeks, then AF came. It felt like it all went on forever. Sorry I couldn't help more.
Oh gosh, I don't know hon. Each one has been a bit different for me, so I imagine it would be different for everyone, depending on your body. Usually, I'll spot or lightly bleed for a few days, then I'll have heavy bleeding with clotting for anywhere btwn 2-5 days. I think the most important thing is, if you're unsure at all about how things are going, that you call your Dr so he can run blood tests immediately.
All my losses have been different in regards to how long bleeding lasted...For me, I bled 2-8 weeks (I went right into AF 6 wks later with a few) ...
Along with the blood work, an ultrasound will also give an idea as to what is going on....
I am miscarrying right now; out and out bleeding started 2 days after I started spotting. I then had 3 days of heavy bleeding with clots, and on the 2nd day of heavy bleeding I passed tissue (I believe it was the placenta - baby was at 6w0d). Today is day 10 and I am still bleeding lightly.
I don't have an answer. Just wanted to let you know that we are all here for you. I hope that everything takes "care of itself" as it should. Shelly
