Question (m/c mentioned)

I have a question and was hoing you ladies could help me out...

I got a BFP on 11/18, and sadly had a natural m/c on 11/28. I literally bled for one day and night and then it was over. My last blood test on 12/1 showed by hcg at an 8. My Dr said it was dropping great and I should count 11/28 as cycle day one.

I ended up getting positive OPKs from Dec 11 to Dec 16. I have never before gotten more than a 2 day surge. I felt my normal O pains on the 16th (but tried bd'ing plenty during the whole time because I wasn't sure how my body would be after a m/c).

So fast forward now... I am now about 16dpo from last positive OPK and O pains. I should mention I stopped taking OPKs on the 16th because I know my O pain, and it was definitely O pain for me. I am still getting BFNs and no AF as of now. I have never had AF be this late.

Can I ask if any of you had natural m/c, how long did it take your first AF to come?

Thanks for any comments.

Kim, once you ovulate your next period should be pretty well on track. It took me 21 days to get a BFP so you might still be in the game, or you just may have changed to a longer luteal phase. My cycles changed a bit after each of my miscarriages...

Sorry it's not more help

It can take a few months for your body to return to normal after a m/c. If you are late and getting a bfn, then I would assume that your body is just taking longer this month. :bigarmhug: So sorry you are going through this.

Sorry, thought I had posted here. It does seem odd to me that you only bled one day and night. Have you ever had AF be that short before? Hope you can get a clear answer soon :bigarmhug:
