Spotting weeks after my miscarriage 2happy 2 kids; 3 angel babies; North Carolina 14739 posts

I miscarried on July 31st. I am not sure how far along I was. But I bleed like a period for about 6 days. When I had my first miscarriage 2 1/2 years ago, I bleed for about 2 weeks and took 17 weeks for my period to come. Here it is about 4 weeks later and I have light brown spotting. Anyone else experiance this before? After my first miscarriage I had horriable cramps and heavy heavy bleeding. This time, barly any bleeding and it's brown and light. .

Were your Hcg levels monitored to make sure they went completely back to 0 to ensure you passed everything?

Yes, my levels were down to 0 about 3 weeks ago. I'm guessing it is my period, but I"m suprised that it came back so soon, since last time, it took 17 weeks.

I'm not sure love, after both my miscarriages I was bleeding for like a week or two (by two very light) and then that was it. I had a normal period right after when I was supposed too and never had spotting afterwards.
Sounds like since there is a gap it may be a period.

Im sorry for you're loss Mandie, periods after a miscarriage can come back the next month or takes ages. I guess its just pot luck to when you get them back.

mine came back within the month after my mc, maybe yours did too this time. i was thinking about it, and even though it was a terrible experience, maybe it's a blessing in disguise to get your body back to normal, so you can have normal, timeable periods with healthy eggs. that way you can get pregnant again soon and the baby will be healthy :)

Depends on how far along you were.. if it was real early along you should have your period like normal after... everyone is different though.

since your levels went back to zero then I would say this is your normal cycle gearing up... which I think is a very good sign. Your body is back to normal.

Thanks ladies. I know each miscarriage is different. I am happy that things have gotten back to normal. Not complaining. My cycle is actually closer to normal in length now. It would be 30 days, compaired to 38-40+.
