I was wondering if some of you could help me? It's actually about a friend of mine. She miscarried back in October and had to have a D&C done. She went back on the pill right after because her dr said she should wait a few months before ttc again and she wanted to keep her cycles normal. Well she still has not gotten a period, each month when her pill stops and she should get it it doesn't come and then she starts her née pack. She went back to jet dr last month ( 3 months after d&c) and he said it's normal and could take 4 months. Well 4 months has just passed and nothing. Should she keep going with the pill? Stop it and see what happens? Have a erios forced on her? She really wants to start trying again and doesn't know what to do? Has anyone taken this long after a d&c to get a period? Thanks for the help!

I got my period about 6 weeks after my d&c. I would probably stop the pill and see what happens. If she still doesn't get her period then she needs to consult her doctor.

I as well got my period about 6-8 weeks after my d&c. I agree with Allison about stopping the pill and then consulting the dr if your friend's period doesn't come.

The other ladies gave great advice! I would stop the pill & wait for AF. I had a D&C and it took me almost 4 months to start back up! The dr. said it takes some women's bodies longer to regulate after a m/c. (I continued to get a +pg. test for 8wks-9wks after d&c.)
