Cramps and spotting 3wks after mc

Postby Amber » Tue Dec 18, 2012 7:55 pm

Hi

I am now 3 weeks post my miscarriage and stopped bleeding about 10 days again. I am now getting spotting again and abdominal cramps like my period is coming on. I thought it might have been ovulation cramps but it is too central for that. What are other people's experiences of their first cycle after a mc? I have no idea what to expect. I have also had a horrible acne flare up and had managed to keep that under control for several months. I am praying it is not an infection. My mc was natural with no surgical intervention and we didn't start DBing until we were given the all clear by EPU.

thanks
Amber

Well it looks like AF is here already, exactly 3 weeks after mc - a bit early though as most information says the following AF will turn up 4 to 6 weeks after mc.

HI Amber - goodness that seems really early - are you still in pain? Have you phoned anyone to ask about it?

It isn't so painful now, I haven't spoken to anybody the thought of any sort of examination fills me with dread I have had enough of it. I thought AF was here but so far only spotting though brown sometimes pink. I wish my body would make it's mind up with what it wants to do, I am trying to concentrate on my work and it keeps distracting me.

It took a long time for the bleeding post m/c to settle down for me this last time round.
After the main event (which lasted 9 days) I then had on/off spotting and on/off bleeding for another 3 weeks. It would be heavy enough to need moderate sanitary protection some days, then light enough to not really need anything on others.
I charted through the best part of my m/c cycle too, so I had sme idea as to what was going on, when I ov'd and when to expect that first af.
The advice I was given at the time was if it doesn't contain clots, if it's no more painful than af, if it all smells normal and if you aren't running a fever then it's very unlikey to be an infection and just "one of those things" as your body & hormones settle back down again.
Hope it sorts itself out soon x x

Thanks Doobycat the cramps have calmed down now, just a bit fed up of blood at the moment!

I can relate to that, Amber, it just seems never ending at times, doesn't it? :|

I just wish AF would turn up or the spotting would go away, it has been going on for 3 days now along with AF like cramps. I now the lady at the EPU said I might get some spotting but she didn't say anything about cramps to go with it.

Hi Amber,
The cramping may be your uterus contracting. I had them for about a week after my MC. Hope the bleeding stops soon xx

It was AF turning up early, my post miscarriage cycle was only 23 days long and now I am on CD3 of my next cycle. There was no chance of conceiving on that last cycle as I have so much dark blood and clots, but at least I haven't needed any pain killers for this AF. Hoping for a better quality cycle this time so I can get a BFP that sticks for 9 months!
