First a little back story...I had a miscarriage in April, in my 2nd trimester, I had a D&C (records say D&E, but I was told D&C by my doctor, so who knows)...Any way, 3 weeks after that I hemorrhaged and was told it was normal...12 days of hemorrhaging and I ended up in the hospital, had another D&C and 2 blood transfusions...I was told it was something that I now know it wasn't...I got pregnant a month later, and that ended in miscarriage too...Well I started to have the same problem, prolonged bleeding...They caught this sooner, with ultrasound...It was something called arterialvenous fistula...It's from an artery in my uterus being damaged probably from my D&C in April...I shouldn't of had a 2nd D&C in May because that usually makes it worse...Well it's now been over 5 weeks since my miscarriage...I haven't hemorrhaged except for one night for about a half hour I bled very badly, but then it slowed down, so I didn't have to go to the hosptial...I was told if they do surgery to fix this, that I probably wouldn't have any more children, which I want, so we've been watching it...I've had a couple of ultrasounds and a couple of blood tests to make sure my blood count was good...I've been taking extra iron and prenatals, plus i've been trying to eat foods high in iron...Well any way, it's been very stressful wondering if I'm going to hemorrhage at any moment, and wondering if i'll have surgery and never be able to have another baby...Well I think my uterus is healing!!! The last couple days there has been hardly any blood at all, and today for about half the day I had none...Now i'm just having some blood tinged CM, which I won't even consider actual blood since it's just when I use the bathroom...I'm so happy and I hope that it doesn't pick up again and i'll be able to TTC in a couple months...My doctor did tell me that this could very well be a problem in another pregnancy...They don't really know much about this, it's rare, so she couldn't say...So I guess i'll just have to wait and see.

Megan, I was so glad to read that your uterus seems to be healing and the bleeding is improved! I can't remember where you live right now but are you anywhere near a large medical center....even just a few hour drive that you could make once or twice to see a specialist that might have more experience with your condition than your OB? I drove to UCSF when I was pregnant for a second opinion and it was a great decision on our part (they didn't give us the news we wanted, but honestly the doctor was amazing!).

thanks!!! I think the closest specialist is in the seattle area, which is probably a 2 hour drive...I might talk it over with my husband, and maybe I will make an appointment with a specialist...I actually think it might be a good idea, but i'll probably have to have a referral wouldn't I? It probably would be a good thing to do before I TTC again since i've pretty much been told they don't know what to do for me, they don't really even know what's going on...I really might look into it.

Megan, I second the seeing a specialist. I'm so glad to see things are settling down. I hope you're able to ttc again soon.
